About Chrys Howard and Shellie Rushing Tomlinson

Chrys Howard, the mother of Duck Dynasty’s, Korie Robertson, holds a degree in elementary education and spent ten years teaching children with learning differences. After teaching, she joined their family owned business, Howard Publishing, where she served as senior editor and Creative Director for twelve years.

Chrys, President and Founder of It’s a Mom Thing Ministries, hosted a weekly radio show and website by the same name for ten years. She has authored fourteen books, including the best-selling Hugs for Daughters and Motivationals for Moms, with over 1,000,000 books in print and has co-written two cookbooks and two children’s books with Kay Robertson as well as Strong and Kind and Duck Commander Devotionals for Kids with her daughter, Korie Robertson. Her most current book, Rockstar Grandparent, released in March 2019. Her lifestyle site, Rocking It Grand, with Shellie Tomlinson challenges grandparents to be all they can be to the next generation. Chrys is married to John Howard, has three grown children, fourteen grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. They live in West Monroe, LA.

Shellie Rushing Tomlinson is an author, speaker, Bible study teacher and podcast host known for saying “Life is hard when it’s good, and it’s always better when you’re laughing.” Shellie’s best-selling humor books Suck Your Stomach In and Put Some Color On and Sue Ellen’s Girl Ain’t Fat, She Just Weighs Heavy! led Jeff Foxworthy to call her work, “Laugh out loud funny!” Her non-fiction titles, Heart Wide Open and Finding Deep and Wide are helping countless believers experience a deeper relationship with Christ, and her cookbook Hungry is a Mighty Fine Sauce with its companion devotional Devotions for the Hungry Heart feeds her readers bodies and souls!

Shellie and her farming husband, Phil, live in Lake Providence, Louisiana. They have two married children and six grandchildren. With the help of those grands, Shellie spends her summers trying to wear out a pontoon boat on the lake behind their home, and her winters dreaming of warmer days. According to her beloved labs, Beaux and Hank, Shellie is not spending enough time scratching doggie ears, but she is always trying to do better in that department.
