About Jill Holler (Iowa City, Iowa Author)
Jill Holler grew up on a farm in western Illinois, enjoying a life of running free through the pastures during the day and gazing at the countless shimmering stars at night. All around her, she could see the work of God's creative hand, and she knew He was real. Yet it wasn’t until years later that she would discover the abundant life of faith that comes from taking hold of the living power that resides in God and His word. After struggling to find purpose and meaning for much of her young adult life, she found that it resides simply--yet powerfully--in Jesus Christ, her God and Savior.
Earning a master’s degree in English and being a college writing instructor prepared her for writing her first devotional book. But most of all, it was simply the prompting of God and a growing desire to know Him more that led her to write Life in His Hands: A Call to Godly Surrender and Purposeful Living. The devotions in this book are words to her very own soul, yet ones that ring deep with meaning in the hearts of other believers who are seeking God above all else.
Currently, Jill works at Muscatine Community College, continues to write, and enjoys raising her two girls. She also attends numerous football games, basketball games, and track meets, cheering on her husband Marcus, who has been a coach and teacher for twenty years.
