Kelly Bowling – A Mother’s Legacy

Kelly Bowling and the Bowling Family

Each year on the second Sunday of May our minds recall that special woman in our lives called Mother. There is no way to describe the impact a mother has on her family whether good or otherwise, a mother’s presence is felt and missed. I recently spoke with one of Gospel music’s mothers, Kelly Bowling, on life with her family on and off the road.

Kelly Bowling is no stranger to traveling with family, singing and ministering across this country as she traveled with The Crabb Family for many years. She grew up, met and married Mike Bowling all while traveling with her mother and family in a bus across many highways and states.
Kelly recalls traveling with her mother, Kathy Crabb Hannah, in those early days of married life. “Hope Bowling was the first grandchild born that traveled with us. It was very special having my mother there, to help with Hope and time we spent together with Hope playing dress up with my mother’s make-up in the back of the bus. Watching my mother create a close bond with her was very special to me.”

 

Kathy Hannah still boards the Bowling bus from time to time and travels with Kelly, Mike and the girls. Kelly says, “Not too much has changed, my mother helps me with the kids and she gets to be the fun one now with less pressure on her. I have a greater respect and appreciation for my mother now that I am the mother of this group and responsible for day- to-day requirements of this ministry.”
