The daughter of an army colonel, Pam Tebow lived all over the world until she was seventeen, when she entered the University of Florida, where she graduated cum laude with a degree in Journalism and Communications.
While in college, Pam met her husband Bob, and they have been married 37 years and have five children, ranging in age from 21 to 32. They also have two sons-in-law and two granddaughters.
Pam and Bob have been called "homeschool pioneers," because they began homeschooling in 1982, when "homeschool" was not yet a word. Pam recently retired after 24 years of homeschooling, when her youngest son went to college. All five of the Tebow children were homeschooled, and they all received college scholarships. Three have graduated from college, and the two youngest attend the University of Florida.
All five children and their spouses are active in various ministries!
The Tebows lived for a number of years as missionaries in the Philippines, where Bob continues to have an ongoing ministry, which employs over 40 national staff and runs an orphanage for 50 orphans. Pam is very involved in her husband's ministry, coordinating numerous projects and personnel.
Last spring, she visited their wonderful orphanage, Uncle Dick's Home, and spent a week encouraging the wives of the Philippines national staff.
Pam also enjoys numerous writing and speaking opportunities and is passionate about encouraging women to trust the Lord with all their hearts for all their lives.
The notoriety of the Tebow family has increased recently since their youngest son, Tim, sophomore quarterback for the Gators, won the Heisman trophy. Because ESPN aired the portion of the interview with Pam that focused on her refusal to abort "Timmy" when she was advised to do so, she now has a national platform to encourage the pro-life message.
