Holly Russell was born in rural Tennessee outside of Nashville.  She has attended both David Lipscomb University and Trevecca Nazarene University.  Her education focused on Ministry, Education and Music.  She currently is a stay at home mother to her four daughters in TN where she is married to her high school sweetheart.  They have been married since 1995.

Holly has a passion for nature.  She finds solace in Gods creation by taking long walks in the woods and horseback riding.  Holly does speaking engagements at churches on women’s issues.  She is currently working on a book titledReaching for Tassels:  A Woman’s Quest to Reflect God’s Beauty.  She attends The Family of God at Woodmont Hills in Nashville, TN and is involved with many of the ministries there.

Ministry and Speaking:

Every woman wants to believe she can be beautiful and be defined by that Beauty. This Beauty is not a physical beauty, but something that one simply radiates from within. In every womanʼs life, there are doubts and fears if this type of Beauty applies to them. This leads women to doubt themselves as the wonderful creation God has called them to be. Women believe themselves less than radically loved, cherished. When a woman is not fulfilling the design God chose for her, an emptiness arises which can lead to a time of despair; a time where we imagine ourselves anything but beautiful. Out of this des

pair comes a point where we must look at our life and see that we are at a crossroad to either accept the status quo or go on a journey to become beautiful. At the point where we choose Beauty, we become desperate for it. We become as desperate to reflect Beauty as the woman who reached out to touch Jesusʼ tassels was for healing.

  1. I want to say a much-belated yet still-relevant “thank you” for following “A Way With Words.” My joy in writing is made more complete when people read what I’ve written (and even more when they respond).

    I write primarily about faith and mental illness, but am known to dabble in other subjects, stories, and even the occasional poem. If you have any requests, please let me know.

    I appreciate your effort to share the Gospel here. I pray you are blessed in your life and writing, as you bless others.

    Tony Roberts
