As the daughter of an army colonel, Pam Tebow lived all over the world until she was 17, when she entered the University of Florida.  She set out to gain influence by building an impressive college resume with a long list of accomplishments, only to discover the emptiness of exalting self.
Through a series of what she calls “God stories,” Pam discovered the joy of investing herself in the lives of those in her sphere of influence. Her college resume ultimately included graduating with honors in Journalism and Communications and the shaping of her passion for life-impacting influence.
Pam loves speaking for women’s events, prolife and other non-profit groups, and various events in many cities across the country.  Her notoriety increased when her youngest son Tim, quarterback for the Florida Gators, became the first sophomore to win the Heisman Trophy. 
During the nationally televised Heisman broadcast, ESPN aired a portion of an interview that focused on her refusal to abort Timmy when she was advised to do so.  She was given an instant national platform to encourage the pro-life message.
In 2010, Pam and Tim appeared in a Super Bowl commercial that celebrated family and life, which according to a Barna Survey, resulted in 5.5 million people “having cause to rethink their stand on abortion.” 
Pam has appeared on “Good Morning America” and other talk shows and won National awards, including the “Hope and a Future” in 2010, Eagle Forum’s “Woman of the Year” and “Witness in the Public Square” in 2012, “Commission for Women’s Inspiring Woman of the Year” in 2013, “Extraordinary Woman of the Year” in 2015, and “National Pro Life Recognition Award” in 2017.

Pam is passionate about encouraging people of all ages to trust the Lord with all their hearts for all their lives and use the incredible influence God has given them to eternally impact their world.  This is the subject of her first book RIPPLE EFFECTS – Discover the miraculous motivating power of influence. Her book is published by Tyndale House and released Mother’s Day 2019.
