About Holly Pippin

Hi! I’m Holly (and no, I was not born around Christmas). I was actually born on another holiday—Groundhog’s Day, which I celebrate every year because it’s my birthday (of course!) and by watching the movie of the same name starring Bill Murray and Andie MacDowell. I grew up in New Jersey, but thankfully didn’t pick up an accent, and came to Illinois to go to college. After graduating I was trapped in Illinois when my first job as a media assistant kept me here. I have been trapped here ever since. I would much rather live somewhere warm—like Hawaii. As the Editorial Manager at Pioneer Clubs, I wrestle with the written word on a daily basis. But I love what I do and I have been writing ever since I won my third grade poetry contest. I like to spend my free time outdoors at every opportunity—hiking, cycling and enjoying nature, except during Chicago’s sub zero temperatures! I read voraciously and am eternally grateful for eBooks because I can’t fit another book in my personal library.

Choosing a VBS Program is Like a Box of Chocolates…

It’s hard to believe that it’s already the end of February and spring is around the corner (at least, I hope it is).

And by “that time of year” I don’t mean a time for hearts and flowers and little cupids with bows and arrows. I don’t even mean it’s time to prepare the church […]
