Sylvia Holt is a devoted mother and grandmother who advocates for her grandchildren as part of Nashville Rise. A retired registered nurse, former business owner, Alcohol Awareness instructor and motivational speaker, Sylvia has demonstrated great determination to rise above the many issues facing her through out her life. Recently she stated, “My most important goal in life has been to be the best parent and grandparent I can be. That alone has been most rewarding. God has truly blessed me. I love Him because He has not created the spirit of fear in me. It has allowed me to be adventurous in business, my nursing career and my travels. I have had my ups and downs. But I have never failed to go for my dreams.”
Her dream to become a published author was realized with the release of her memoir. “Between the Pews” is a moving, thrilling and often touching story. She tells how an overprotected childhood left her ill-prepared for what she would face later sometimes in the most unlikely places.
