A little bit ABOUT ME

AUTHOR... Rich Holt

I am a dad of six who hardly ever expected to get married, much less have six children. But once our first child arrived, I realized it was the greatest calling I could have. I am also a non-practicing CPA who doesn't enjoy taxes. My greatest claim is to know that my children have each chosen to follow Jesus as their Lord and Savior.

My early years were spent going to church regularly, and somewhere along the way, I realized I needed to place my trust for eternity in Jesus. Since then, there were seasons of deep devotion, times of distance, and everything in between. I have been known to be helpful, judgmental, hilarious, insightful, and aloof. I continue to be amazed by the infinite depth of truth and wisdom of the Scriptures, and I have an enduring passion for teaching the Word in my own simple way.

Writing devotions began over a decade ago as a way to encourage a group of prayer warriors, and it blossomed into a ministry that allowed me to examine my heart and share observations of God's hand at work in everyday life. I continue to look into God's Word for how the many well-known passages and seemingly ordinary texts have much to say, even after thousands of years, and to a man who knows what it means to be fallen. I'm not professionally trained, so read what you will from a co-laborer who's going at it with grace and mercy aplenty.
