About the Author
Holly Curby is a contributing writer to the devotional magazine Journey and has been interviewed by the New York Times, local network affiliates, and the Salt Lake Tribune, among others. Holly has received the Inspirational Award from the Chick-fil-A Foundation and served in many areas of ministry. Her twenty-five-plus years in marketing, a master's degree in leadership and management, and serving in executive leadership roles have provided a platform for her to provide leadership coaching and host Holly's Highlights podcast. She currently serves as the director of community and culture at two Chick-fil-A franchises in Utah. Holly enjoys being with her family, traveling, and showing love and encouragement to those she meets.

"Be prepared to laugh and cry (sometimes on the same page) as you delve into Holly's deeply personal story of God's never-ending presence throughout all of life's unexpected twists and turns. The difficulties of life are shared without pretense in a raw and transparent way that anyone can connect with, dotted with humor and reality checks along the way. This is a message of hope in the midst of a series of daunting personal experiences that would send many into an unhealthy pattern of placing shame and blame on God and others so that we could then justifiably claim our spot in the victim's seat for the remainder of life. But Holly shares a different perspective with a heartfelt desire to use her experiences to encourage those who find themselves facing their own difficult days. This is ultimately a story of God's love and provision in whatever comes our way; it's also a story of examining and refining belief and faith when we're tested by fire. I encourage you to take this journey with Holly. You'll walk away being encouraged and hopeful that, no matter what comes your way, healing is possible and God is ever present, even on our darkest days."

-Tina Toombs Pelton, women's pastor and pastor of counseling and community ministries at Risen Life Church, Salt Lake City, Utah

"Holly embodies a steadfast perseverance. As she walks you through so many heartbreaking seasons in her life, you will find hope is what pulled her through and can be found in everyday situations you might face. Her stories can help you grow, heal, and keep going amidst life's toughest struggles."

-LeighAnn Billsten, owner of Southern States Realty Group

"How can a series of such heartbreaking, would-be life shattering tragedies be turned into a great adventure with the Lord? Holly has learned practical ways to entrust her life, and the lives of her children, to God through her pain. And she has seen God use that pain to produce pearls-a string of glowing pearls-to hold near to her own heart and to share with others as a testimony of God's goodness and power."

-Judy McCoin, retired Bible study fellowship teacher of twenty-eight years
