holyhenhouseHi! I am Nicole, I am an ordinary woman who loves Jesus and trusts Him to get me through this broken world. Wife and mother of two (one in heaven and one on earth), this season of life is teaching me a few lessons in humility and grace. I am continually amazed at how the Lord blesses me in the most unpredictable ways. I recently left my job to stay at home with my son. My typical day includes going to the gym, running errands, play dates, meals, and spending time with my husband. I volunteer my time advising a sorority group at Carthage College. I have also spent time traveling nationally for the same sorority and love to work with collegiate women, helping prepare them for the real world – dealing with conflict, problem solving and dealing with risk management. I write (although took a break for awhile after my son was born) on my personal blog www.oliveandherbranches.blogspot.com, travel, reading, cooking and sports.
I have learned to love Psalm 46:10, "Be still and know that I am God.”
After my daughter passed away I wanted to fight anything and everything: God, my husband, my loss, my feelings – a fellow bereaved mother helped me through this time by reminding me to “sit still in the wound”. If we thrash about in our circumstances we reopen the wound and create more scar tissue. If we can be still in the wound, allowing the Lord to bring us through each new day, the wound will heal around us.
