About the author:
Holly Doherty is an authority on self-esteem and simplicity. She specializes in helping people overcome painful experiences in their pasts so they can discover their true worth.

Holly understands that people are busy. It seems that mothers of young children, especially, barely have time to shower, let alone read long-winded books. She writes for these busy women, giving them resources that can be read quickly and are full of useful information they can put into practice right away.

Her first book, The Magic of Family Meals: 115 Conversation Starters to Connect With Your Kids was published in 2012.

Holly Doherty is an adoptive mother of two beautiful children and, Lord willing, the will-be adoptive mother of 1 more darling who lives in her heart but has not yet come to live in her home. She lives in the Phoenix Valley of Arizona with her husband, children, and 2 cats. She loves her husband, homeschools her children and tries (unsuccessfully) to train her cats.
