I’m Nicki. A radio personality, writer and speaker who loves cupcakes, coffee, messy kitchens and Jesus. Just not in that order!

We’re gonna go deep here. Past the plastic smiles and the happy faces we put on every Sunday morning for church. We’re hurting. Every single one of us. In some way or another. But somewhere, amidst all that sorrow, whether it’s at the surface or tucked away deep inside, is an opportunity to find abundant joy in Jesus!

We have an enemy who wants us to blend in with the crowd. But Jesus, He wants us to shine for Him.

My story is filled with lots of messy stuff, like trauma, abuse, grief and anxiety. But there’s been so much joy in the middle of it all because Jesus has been with me every step of the way! God can use all our hard stuff to point people to Jesus and shine a light on His glory too.

Blog

I write authentically about Jesus, faith, marriage + life, with a big dose of sass and humor. I like to share recipes, books and other fun stuff too.

Speaking

I talk about Jesus daily as a Midwest Christian radio personality. I also speak at women's retreats and write for print and digital publications.

Live simply

Ever feel like you gotta have it all together? It's exhausting! We place too much value in worldly stuff. I believe in the healing power of authenticity. No one's perfect. Let's stop pretending, embrace our quirks and love others.

Love abundantly

Having faith doesn't make life all rainbows and roses. Life is hard. Jesus gives us hope in our hard stuff. He gives us the power to love the most unlovable humans. Jesus can soften hardened hearts. He's my superhero!

Be you-nique

You're special. There's no one like you on the planet. Aren't you tired of trying to measure up to unrealistic expectations? No more living like a cookie-cutter Christian. We're all a little messy. That's why we need Jesus!

I love words.

I’m currently on air at a regional Christian radio network and write for print + online publications. Before ministry, I did marketing and communications for a U.S. Presidential candidate, a former Midwest Governor, a global nonprofit and two fortune 500 companies.
My work has been published in the Washington Post, USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, LA Times and many other large papers and trade publications throughout the U.S.

Creativity is my soul food.

I started a blog because I missed the creativity and fun that comes from graphic design and web development after leaving corporate life. I’m in the process of writing a series of children’s book for traumatized children. I love encouraging women to grow deeper in their faith and hang out a lot on Facebook!
You can often find me singing, baking, reading, taking long walks with my hubby or grabbing coffee with friends when I’m not writing.
