Holly Cook’s heart for raising up children to know and love God drove her to volunteer as a Sunday school teacher. Her favorite part of being a children’s leader was watching the kids worship God in the genuine and authentic way that only kids can. One day as she watched she found herself talking with God about how fun and beautiful it was to see the children worship Him. What began as an internal expression of thanksgiving grew into a desire to meet a need for a VBS worship leader. As Holly led VBS worship God grew a passion for leading children in worship within her heart. When she heard that Wednesday Night Live needed a worship leader, Holly knew God was offering her an opportunity to join in His work to guide the next generation into a relationship with Him. On Wednesday nights Holly uses her gifts in a role God established and invited her to fill. His ways are perfect and Holly often finds herself brought to tears when she watches little hands raised in worship to Jesus.

We all can experience the Holy Spirit nudge our hearts just like He nudged Holly. We can be confident in knowing that God will ignite a passion for His people within us. We can trust that He will open our eyes to the needs of His kingdom. We can confidently leap into the roles He creates for us because we know He will give us the boldness and strength to do His work.
