HI, I’M HOLLY RIGOS.
I’M A WIFE, MOM, AND CREATOR AT KNITTING OUR STORY.
Hi, I’m Holly Rigos, a former sports marketing assistant and globe-trotting philanthropist, currently living my greatest life as an online content creator and mom of four. I love studying God’s word, photography, and making films. Knitting Our Story is a JOURNEY JOURNAL documenting how we are building an online ministry through knitting the subtle pages of our story together for HIS glory.
In 2018, I launched this blog out of a place of struggle when my family experienced the loss of multiple loved ones then in 2019 we experienced the biggest fear in our lives thus far. It opened my eyes and heart to the idea that this little place online can become a place of hope and joy for others who may be experiencing the same pain and suffering as they face uncertainties in life.
Join me in trusting in the Knitter of our stories.
I graduated with a degree in Sports Management with an emphasis on Marketing and Business from Georgia Southern University – HAIL SOUTHERN! Upon completion, I joined the Peace Corps as a Small Enterprise Development volunteer and served two years in Mail, Africa then served a stint in Teach For America based in Selma, Alabama.
At which point, I met and quickly married my husband at 25. Consequently, I sacrificed all the globe-trotting and resume building to stay at home as we grew our family and established a home. Over ten years, four kids, and several moves later we’ve settled in Upstate NY. From marketing to stay at home mom, it’s been quite an adventure.
Being away from my family in the South meant lots of photo texts, video emails, and sending little snippets of our life. However, it felt incomplete! I began knitting the best of our moments together utilizing video editing software and incorporating new elements such as music, text overlays, and so on.
In 2018, I started this blog hoping to bridge the gap of YOUR physical and digital moments by teaching YOU WHY and HOW to craft your legacy.
What started as a way to share my passions and faith has evolved into, what I hope, will be a flourishing online ministry for many other women who feel, think, and grow as we do. Join the journey newsletter as I share updates and new inspirations as this ministry grows to glorify Him.
KNITTING OUR STORY
The name “Knitting Our Story” is inspired and takes direction from Psalm 139: 13-16.
For you created my inmost being;you knit me together in my mother’s womb.I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;your works are wonderful,I know that full well.My frame was not hidden from youwhen I was made in the secret place,when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.Your eyes saw my unformed body;all the days ordained for me were written in your bookbefore one of them came to be.
Our inmost being was carefully, skillfully, and lovingly knitted together in the secret place of our mother’s womb.
We are significant. We are worthy of love. We are HIS most prized possessions.
My blog is meant to be a creative outlet and resource for others. It will hopefully teach YOU how to create cohesive visual storytelling through films, dynamic photographs, scrapbooks, photo books, blogging, and multiple other ways to keep YOUR legacy alive for future generations through the use of digital media.
