Meet My Peeps: Heart to Heart with Holley

Holley’s blog falls into my first blogging category: Bloggers Who Blog.  (I know, clever, right?)


I only have three categories in my Google Reader: Bloggers Who Blog; Girlfriends; and Home Blogs.   I don’t know Holley “in real life” and her blog is definitely deeper than some of the home decor blogs that I frequent, so it seemed obvious that she go in the BWB category.

But the longer I’ve been reading her, the closer I get to moving her into the “Girlfriend” category.

Because, really, anyone who is vulnerable and modest enough to admit in her very first blog post that she “put deodorant on my lips instead of chapstick” is someone that you just think “I could be friends with her.  (Or, at least that is what I thought.  Maybe your friends are totally normal.)

Anyway.  Holley works for Dayspring, the Christian division of Hallmark, and she is kind of my hero, the reasons behind which lie in another post altogether.  Her thoughts flow into beautiful words, painting pictures and scenes that take me deep within myself, to the throne room of Heaven, or to a different world altogether.

For example, below are linked some of my favorite Holley posts:

Hope Like A Child

Simply The Best

Where’s God When It Rains

I hope that you’ll find Holley worthy of your blog roll.  I know my daily reading wouldn’t be complete without a visit to her site, to see what has been laid on her heart.  She has never failed to bless me, and I hope the same will hold true for you.

Oh, girl, you are making me cry! The drippy nose kind! Thank you for your encouraging words and for sharing my site with your readers. I'm honored and blessed. A BIG hug to you, friend of my heart (even if we haven't met face-to-face)!
