About Holley

The Short Version: I like humans, words, and good coffee.

The Longer Version: My grandparents owned a little bookstore in Texas. I had a good childhood, bad bangs, and spent a lot of time reading in trees.

I grew up to be a Wall Street Journal bestselling author, life coach, and podcaster with a Masters of Science Degree in counseling. I’ve spent the last decade empowering about half a million people to realize more of their God-given potential through books like You’re Already Amazing, Fiercehearted, and The Powerful Purpose of Introverts.

I know what it’s like to fight anxiety and depression, perfectionism and insecurity, doubt and burnout. I also know what it’s like to become a kick-butt overcomer who refuses to let any of those things win, who finally discovered how to be comfortable and free in her own imperfect introvert skin.

I believe our struggles don’t determine our identity or destiny. 

I believe we’re all here for a purpose and we’re better together.

I believe wherever you are today is not where you have to stay. 

I also believe good tacos help just about anything. Mark, my husband and favorite human, wholeheartedly agrees.

After we went through a decade of infertility, God brought our daughter, Lovelle, into our lives when she was twenty years old. Now we have a son-in-law David, and a granddaughter, Eula, who’s three and calls us Nana and Poppi (what I called my Texas grandparents). 

Because of my crazy-beautiful family story, I no longer believe in dead ends. Instead, I believe in divinely-arranged new directions that take us places beyond what we hoped for or planned. 

Wherever you are today, I’ll help you get where you want to go. Pro tip: Bring a taco.
