Singer and author Ellie Holcomb says motherhood has given her a fresh outlook on life and a deeper understanding of God’s unconditional love. Holcomb is the mother of three young children and the author of three children’s books, each with a companion EP of original music. Recently, she released two projects geared toward adults: a new Psalms-based album, All of My Days, and an expanded edition of her bestselling devotional, Fighting Words.

Holcomb toured full-time with her husband’s band, Drew Holcomb and The Neighbors before her first child was born.

“One of my favorite things about being a mom is that you get to see the world again -- through their eyes,” she told Crosswalk Headlines. “Everything feels new and fresh. It’s been so good for me as a grown-up.”

She said motherhood has also given her a new perspective on God’s love and grace. 

“We are, first and foremost, beloved sons and daughters of the most high God,” she said. “And so, being a mom has helped me remember that before I’m even a mom, I’m God’s daughter, and He’s going to take such good care of me, and He’s going to take such good care of my kids, too. Man, what a freedom to know: We’re all just God’s kids, trying to make our way back home again. I am grateful for the freedom to be a kid, to mess up.”
