Crazy Money! Holtz Leather

It’s Crazy Money Day!

25 years ago, Rick and Coleen Holtz got married as teenagers. Their goals? Own a business and have a big family. The Lord shaped their hearts through hardship. Over a period of 5 years, they lost a business, a home, and had their cars repossessed. Through extreme humbling, God taught them that life is more than things or titles. Rick grew as he focused on family and the One who’s sovereign over all. In 2014, he and his wife started Holtz Leather a company that reflects excellence and their love of family. They have 11 children: 6 biological and 5 adopted from Costa Rica. They work together and are true craftsmen.

Work is one of the primary ways we experience purpose, meaning, and joy. It allows for self-expression, serves the needs of others, and brings glory to God. Christians should be the most desired of all employees or employers throughout the world. We know the dignity of hard work. We should be motivated to do our best knowing we represent the Lord wherever our jobs take us. Work is a daily opportunity to share God’s goodness whether working at home, on an assembly line, in the corporate world, or on the mission field. Consider the words of Solomon, “Do you see someone skilled in their work? They will serve before kings; they will not serve before officials of low rank.” (Proverbs 22:29) Excellence gets noticed. Check out and see the crazy good work that God is doing through them!
