I’m Nicki Schroeder. A radio personality, digital content manager, 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 struggling. Every single one of us. But we have an opportunity to find abundant joy in Jesus in the middle of our overwhelmed lives and pain-filled stories.

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.


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


I like free stuff and I cannot lie. Sign up for my mailing list and get lots of freebies when we stay connected.


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.

I like big words and I cannot lie!

I’m currently on air at a regional Christian radio network and write for print + online publications. Before ministry, I did pr, 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. Now I get to design in ministry life too and I love it. 
You can often find me singing, baking, reading, bingeing Netflix, taking long walks with my hubby or grabbing coffee with friends when I’m not writing or designing stuff.
