Welcome

I CAN TELL WE ARE GOING TO BE GREAT FRIENDS. I THINK WE HAVE A HEART CONNECTION ALREADY!

Yes, you…the one looking for encouragement, support, and ways to see Jesus in our daily routines.

I am totally with you in this search my friends. It is a privilege to meet you as we take a Jesus-journey together.

My name is Shelly Hollis, originally from small town Illinois and transplanted to even smaller town Alabama when I was 9…raised most of my life in single-wide trailers…with 6 siblings. I come from humble beginnings and it made me a stronger person.

I am married to an amazing man who I claimed as my future husband on our second date. Thirty years later, we have two adult children, two adorable grandsons.1518150_10202593356694165_8465840410069064111_o

I am a teacher to my very core – a former science teacher (yes I am geek), a former senior consultant/coach for FranklinCovey’s Education practice, and currently curriculum specialist for Sheffield City Schools.  But my passion is teaching God’s Word. And when God puts a burning message in my heart, I am compelled by Him to write it down!

The thing is this…God won’t let me write it down here or on my blog until I am living it out in my personal life. He is funny like that. God wants those who claim the excellent name of Jesus to live a life of integrity.

Not that I am living it out perfectly – oh no. But by His amazing grace, my heart stays humble and ready to learn.

Will you make an agreement with me as we start our Jesus-journey together? Let’s look for the sacred things in the ordinary things of life…

  • The burning bush in fall foliage.
  • The cross in the clouds.
  • New grace with the start of each new day.

Yep…I already like you! And I would count it a privilege to walk out this crazy, exciting, Jesus-journey together.
