Mary Hollingsworth is the well-known author of more than one hundred twenty Christian books, which have appeared on bestseller lists more than one hundred times. Three of her books have sold more than one million copies each, and total sales of her books now approach 8 million copies.
Mary is also an upbeat and challenging speaker, Bible teacher, and singer. A delightful storyteller, she is naturally funny with an insightful and powerful message of hope and joy. She speaks from her background as a pastor’s daughter, minister’s wife, music outreach ministry leader, and missionary to New Zealand. And she punctuates her messages with songs of praise in her rich contralto voice.
Mary has won several literary awards, such as Howard Books/Simon & Schuster’s Spiritual Development Award, the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association Gold Book Award (twice), and the ECPA Platinum Book Award (twice). In April 2018 she received the Global Media Summit’s Platinum Award for Excellence in Communication.
Mary holds a Bachelor of Science in business education degree from Abilene Christian University, with minor equivalents in Bible and journalism. Her master’s work is in mass media from Texas A&M Commerce.
