Meet the Author

Dr. J. Howard Olds served as senior pastor of Brentwood United Methodist Church in Nashville, Tennessee from 2000 to 2008. "Make it a good day" was a familiar phrase, repeated by Olds when he signed off from his popular Faith Breaks messages heard regularly on the radio airwaves in Nashville and beyond. Olds was the author of three books, Laughing and Crying Your Way Through Cancer, Faith Breaks, and Led to Follow, which he co-authored with Cal Turner, former CEO of Dollar General Stores. Olds received his Master of Divinity degree from Asbury Theological Seminary and his Doctorate of Ministry degree from Lexington Theological Seminary. During the three decades before moving to Tennessee, Olds served four United Methodist churches in Kentucky. During his long pastorate in Nashville, Olds battled cancer openly and boldly; he ministered out of his own struggles and experiences. Olds' sermons and other writings are in the process of being published so that his unique voice will continue to challenge and encourage.
