Roma Holley has written a book titled “Surviving The Storm Through The Wind Of The Spirit: My Journey Through Grief”.
It is the story of how she managed the ups and downs after the loss of her son, Zachary.
Roma explains, “This is my perspective only. I wrote it in hopes that it might help others who are suffering loss. Maybe it will give them hope that we can make it through. Plus, it will allow them to see that what they are experiencing is very normal, if that word can even be applied to life after loss.”
Roma Johnson Holley lost her 21 year old son, Zachary, to a horrific vehicle accident. The journey that ensues is one that is more like a roller-coaster ride than an actual journey. A roller-coaster will take you up and down, with twists and turns and then eventually return to where it began. And so has been this journey. Unspeakable joy at the birth of grandchildren and then the remembrance that this child will never know their Uncle Zachary. Unspeakable grief at the loss of a beloved cousin and aunt and then the remembrance that they are now in the presence of God. This journey is one that no one wants to take but that almost everyone will have to endure at some point in their life. The destination of each person will depend upon how we deal with the trials and difficulties along the way. Join Roma as she travels a rough and tumble road until she realizes the power of the Holy Spirit. The comfort, guidance and strength that comes from this one realization changes her entire perspective.
Roma Holley was born and raised in west Texas and grew up loving animals and all things country. Brought up to love the Lord and seek His guidance in all things, her life was enriched as she traveled to and lived in several countries and states. Through the course of her life she encountered many people who helped influence and refine her love of God. As a mother of 4 and grandmother of 6 she tries to set an example for them to follow that will lead to eternal life with God the Father.
