The fresh new face in Christian independent publishing. My full circle return to publishing in an amazing story of God’s faithfulness.

Athena Dean Holtz, SPEAKER

I’m a radio host, blogger, author, speaker, publisher and pastor’s wife and I help women who’ve been wounded by the church or other traumatic life experiences, so they can learn to trust God again. After a 12 year long “Job-like” experience where I lost everything I held dear – marriage, family, house, credit rating, business and nearly my faith – I found God at work redeeming me in ways that I never expected. Through this intense period of suffering and healing from the fallout of toxic leadership and extreme spiritual abuse, He proved Himself faithful to walk with me through the valley of the shadow of (emotional) death and bring me out the other side into wholeness and restoration. My modern-day Cinderella story is a sight to behold and a testimony to the faithfulness of God.I love sharing my story with crowds across the nation. I’d love to come to speak to your group!
