When I first listened to JJ Heller’s song, “A Hand to Hold”, I had to pause the music and get tissues! JJ’s music captures the wonder of childhood and the love between parents and children in such a magical way! Today, JJ joins us on the podcast to talk about her journey…from college basketball player, to crippling anxiety attacks, to finding her voice and place in the music industry (and 10 million streams of Hand to Hold!)
And now her book, “Hand to Hold’ is also available! (and such a beautiful read!)
I love JJ’s honesty and humility, and I think everyone will enjoy getting to know her in this chat. Her story is a great reminder that God can use every struggle, hurt, and disappointment for His glory and our good when we love and trust Him!
JJ’s book: Hand to Hold
This heartwarming picture book reassures children that a parent’s love never lets go—based on the poignant lyrics of JJ Heller’s beloved lullaby “Hand to Hold.”
