During her time at home, she completed a Master’s degree in education. Holly returned to the classroom in 2009. Voted teacher-of-the-year by her peers in 2010, she held the position of lead teacher in her grade before leaving her educational career.

Holly and her family are actively involved in ministry at their church. She’s on staff at New Life Church in Augusta, Georgia. She loves encouraging others to find their place and enjoys singing on the worship team. Her greatest joy is listening to and watching her own children using their gifts in ministry, but she also loves to hear her husband play the saxophone.
Residing in a rural part of Georgia with her family, Holly spends the majority of her time writing, editing, and working through high-school curriculum with her youngest. Her eldest graduated in 2018 and attends a local technical college. She enjoys crocheting, reading, and encouraging others to pursue all God has for them.

The first photo in the series was taken on the beach trip when the rash on her eldest son’s leg was first discovered. Some of the photos will show that the Murrays’ youngest son shaved his head in support of his brother. The Murrays were blessed with gifts to make their hospital stays more comfortable, and were comforted by the prayers and encouragement of family and friends. Many meals were delivered and visits enjoyed to make the long days bearable. ,
