Paige Brooks and Jennifer Kammerdiener   met on the campus of Carson-Newman    College over 20 years ago, and they have been “sisters in song” ever since.  In 2005 they released their first original project, Run Free With Me.  Paige and Jenn enjoy leading worship and sharing their testimonies with women from all walks of life through conferences and weekend retreats as well as in churches and community events. 

Becky Mann is a creative author and speaker who brings the scriptures to life as she ministers to students, families, and women of all ages.   Becky is working on her first book, Dan Dan Moved to Heaven.  Through this heartwarming story, young and old will learn about grace in grief, and will experience a glimpse of the joy that awaits us in eternity with Jesus.  Becky has authored women’s conferences titled “Oh The Games We Play”, “Patchwork Princess”, “The More I Seek Him” and “If the Fish and Loaves Could Talk”.

Together the women of takinghold welcome opportunities to share and celebrate the journey of life in Christ.  To schedule an event please see the contact information below.

Please partner with us in prayer as we continue to share Jesus with others on this journey of takinghold of Him!


My goal is to know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death, assuming that I will somehow reach the resurrection from among the dead.  Not that I have already reached the goal or am already fully mature, but I make every effort to take hold of it because I also have been taken hold of by Christ Jesus.  Brothers, I do not consider myself to have taken hold of it.  But one thing I do; forgetting what is behind and reaching forward to what is ahead, I pursue as my goal the prize promised by God's heavenly call in Christ Jesus.           

Philippians  3:10-14 HCSB
