Hey There, I Like You Already

Imagine we’re in your favorite coffee shop or café. The air smells like chocolate and espresso. I bring you a mug of something you love and then say, “Tell me about you.”

You share about your life–the good things and blessings. Yet you’re also battling something like insecurity, fear or discouragement. Yep, I hear you. I’ve been there too. Lean in and listen close, those battles aren’t reasons for shame or guilt. They’re just proof you’re a fighter and I want to help you win.

You see struggles, I see your God-given superpowers…let’s find your cape.

Your work has helped play a part in shaping me into the person I am today: a centered, confident, happy woman who doesn’t take a day for granted. Here’s to never giving up and embracing imperfection along the way. – Jen

I read You’re Going to Be Okay cover to cover in three days and I can tell you that it truly changed my life. It completely transformed how I react to situations and how I handle worry, stress, anxiety, etc. You do an impeccable job at applying and combining The Word, real life experiences and science/research (which is really helpful to a medical brain!). – Maggie

Next to the Bible, Fiercehearted is the most underlined book I have ever owned. It’s like Holley knew my soul, my struggles, and said to me: “You are not alone.” She gave my heart oxygen and my soul food and this book is like a hug, a friendship to me, during a season where I need it so much. – Amazon review

Imagine waking up feeling confident in who you are, equipped and excited to do what you need to and feeling inspired about your life. It really is possible.

I want to do everything I can to help you embrace who you are and become all you’re created to be.

In elementary school, I sometimes hid in the bathroom because talking to people was a little too much to handle. As a young woman, I struggled with anxiety, depression, perfectionism and insecurity. Even into early middle age, I kept asking the question, “What’s wrong with me?”

I began looking into how I was wired and read every article or book I could find on how to thrive, especially as an introvert. I got a master’s degree in counseling and became a certified life coach. I published books that turned out to be bestsellers and connected with thousands of women whose stories were similar to mine. They would send me notes online or walk up to me at speaking events and whisper, “Me too.”

The more I learned about who God made me and talked to others, the more I began to lean into my strengths. I found I had unique gifts to offer. I discovered how to transform my anxiety, depression, perfectionism and insecurity into powerful traits like empathy, compassion, creative excellence and humble confidence. I believe this is absolutely possible for you too.

Do I still have struggles? Sure, that’s part of being human. But my struggles no longer have me.
