Ep 8: Ellie Holcomb
Christy Nockels

Welcome to the Glorious in the Mundane podcast! Thank you for tuning in week after week! I have been so humbled to get to sit down with so many sweet and amazing people over the past few months, it has been like drinking from a well! Today is no exception. I’m so glad that if you’ve never heard of Ellie Holcomb that you’re going to be introduced to her and her music or maybe if you’ve listened to Ellie for quite some time, you’ll get a little glimpse into her heart and her world. Ellie and her husband Drew (of Drew Holcomb & the Neighbors) are both incredibly talented musicians and singer/songwriters and you’ll even hear Ellie featured on many of Drew’s albums as well. Ellie’s dad, Brown Bannister was the producer of many early (and very successful) Christian artists like the Imperials, Amy Grant, Michael W. Smith and Steven Curtis Chapman so she was raised around good, soul music her whole life. So it’s no surprise that Ellie just knows how to skillfully mesh the Word of God with that kind of music…the kind that seeps into your soul.

You’ll also hear me share around the thought (and the scripture) that “all is ours in Christ” – which unfolds more of this posture of sitting in that bullseye place and living and even loving from this place. You’ll hear me even share some vulnerable moments as a Mom, leading my girls through life’s hardest question as a woman… Enjoy!

    OMG you have me crying and it’s not even 10 minutes in. I love you, you have no idea. You are my second favorite human being.

    I loved this episode so much! I have two little girls as well. The stories you told about your daughters had me in tears. This podcast is such an encouragement to me.

    I just listened to you on YouTube giving a conference titled “Live * Lead from Love” and I can’t even begin to tell you. This has been the same message I’ve been hearing everywhere I turn for the past year or more (shedding the orphan spirit) and I had the thought as I was listening to you, I don’t the reach that you do in mentoring others but I do have one too amazing for adjectives 4 year old daughter. And if I include her in waking up every morning in the bull’s eye, speaking as, you said, that I am beloved and praying what that means with her, she can grow up bypassing so much of the garbage most adults have to sort through because of struggling with this concept if she absorbs it while I’m trying to learn it. I don’t think the depth and weight of this thought is coming through very well on “paper” here, but I can’t begin to convey the excitement I feel over this possibility and realization. It’s huge

    Christy, can I call you Christy? I feel like I can because of the way you reach straight through my phone and preach Jesus to me at the beginning of every one of your podcasts. I am so very thankful for you and for your gift of sharing Gods love with us. I must share that tonight I had a moment with my seven year old that I was prepared for and was able to speak the truth to her because of this very podcast episode. She asked why me and her father and her brother all had brown hair but she had blonde as she walked over to the mirror looking distastefully at herself, why did she have to be differnt. I then stumbled through the you are enough, God made you pretty and unique and hand picked and designed every piece of you, creating you perfectly in His image. Through tears we both had a moment and connected through something I have struggled to proclaim my whole life and she had begun the fight at 7. It breaks my heart but at the same time gives it strength to have been equipped through your words and your podcast as well as through the Holy Spirit to be able to speak the truth to her in a timely manor and not to just be stuck not knowing what to say.
    I think I’m babbling but please hear my deepest thank you for doing what your doing and feel my gratefulness from me, a perfect stranger but a sister in Christ.
