Author Biography

Inspired by her friends, family, and of course, Jesus, Toby Holsinger lives to inspire other young girls through her writing. When she’s not putting pen to paper, you can find her outside hiking, jogging, reading, walking her beloved Jug (Pug and Jack-Russel) Oscar, listening to music, and hanging out with friends. Her favorite food is anything Italian and she hopes to visit Italy someday. For now, Toby is enjoying life in Pennsylvania with her family while taking time to stop and smell the roses.
I really appreciate positive feedback from readers. Thanks so much for your support! It's not easy to put my heart out for everyone to read, but I know that God is working through these pages. I wouldn't trade that for the world! I would encourage you to be completely open to whatever God has to say to you (:

Has there ever been a time in your life when you could talk to God and feel His presence in the room and then on another occasion or for a long period of time, He seemed a million miles away? This is only one of the many challenges of daily living that Toby Holsinger addresses in her teen devotional, This I Know. Written by a teen for teens, Toby engages her primary audience from her own experience and using the same language and situations that teens face daily. Saved by Grace, The Battle Within, Little Mistakes; Big Consequences, I Give What I Have, and Confessions of a Bad Girl are only a very few of the nearly 100 topics explored in This I Know. Even though the Bible was written more than two thousand years ago, it is still completely relevant to today’s teen. Toby encourages teens to dig into the Word and discover guidance for daily living, by using stories that are relatable, with answers that are profound.

In This I Know, Toby Holsinger has brought herself into the reader’s heart through a simple story and then an equally simple, yet profound answer from God’s word. The topics and stories are hard-hitting and reach out to teens who are living in a culture that leaves very little room for a real God. Toby addresses the issues that are most relevant to their daily lives and each of her devotionals is grounded in solid biblical thinking. Teens who are looking for answers that can help them cope will find This I Know to be inspiring, encouraging, and honest. Grounded, relevant and truthful; This I Know is a valuable guide to Christian living for today’s teen.
