Hi 👋🏻 My name is Nicole and I love French press coffee without cream or sugar, French macarons (not macaroons) and rosemary cooked in just about everything. My husband and children make me a better woman and my two Boston terriers, Grace and Charlie, too! I love the way God’s Word comes to life when we live it. I’ve dedicated my life to learning how to walk with God daily through my marriage, motherhood and ministry. Follow my blog to see how I do it!
