The Tapestry Network of Nevada County (previously known as The BAM Project — A Nevada County Tapestry) is host its next monthly tapestry gathering at 5:20 p.m. April 11 at The Holbrooke. This dinner is a benefit for the Hospitality House, and the guest speaker is Alta Sierra author and speaker Holly LaChappell. LaChappell will have both of her books for sale and will autograph them with proceeds of the book sales benefiting Anew Day counseling Center in Grass Valley.
Holly’s two books, “Flowers of Grace: Discovering God’s Lavish Love and Extravagant Promises” and “Reigning Fire: Discovering Holy Spirit Grace and Hope In Your Fiery Trials,” are sure to teach and inspire. Holly has a bachelor’s degree in psychology and holds numerous teaching credentials. She has taught kindergarten, second grade and junior high home economics. Holly was awarded The Union’s “Best of” award for Teaching in 2011.
In addition to being a founding member, hospitality coordinator and guest speaker for The Tapestry Network, Holly was blessed to serve with Twin Cities Church Women’s Executive Leadership Board for eight years. Currently she serves as one of the teaching speakers and leaders in their women’s bible study. She also volunteers at A-New Day, a free counseling center in Grass Valley.
Holly has had the privilege of speaking at churches, conventions, retreats and workshops, including presenting the Sunday message at a village church in Uganda, Africa.
