Holly Murray is a former school teacher with several years’ experience in both public and private school. She chose to be a stay-at-home mom for several years after the birth of her firstborn. During her time at home, she completed a Master’s degree in education. Mrs. Murray 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 has always enjoyed school. She especially enjoys using her imagination and creativity in writing, and loved to push her students to excellence in all areas of life.
Holly and her family are actively involved in ministry at their church. Holly is on staff at New Life Church in Augusta, Georgia. She loves to help others find a place to belong and enjoys singing with the worship team. Her husband and boys each serve on the worship team as well. Her greatest joy is listening to and watching her own children serving in ministry, but she also loves to hear her husband play 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. She home-schooled both of her boys for the majority of their educational careers. Her eldest graduated in 2018 and attends a local technical college. She enjoys cooking and taking care of her family. Holly enjoys crocheting, reading, and encouraging others to pursue all God has for them. She also enjoys traveling with her husband, Keith. Married for 22 years, they love spending time with one another and laughing a lot!

Holly enjoyed her last few years teaching first grade. Each year, she added more hand prints to this t-shirt, each belonging to a child she taught and loved.
