Hi, I’m Nikki!
I’m a book sniffing, inspirational coffee mug loving, Holy Spirit led, oil lovin’ hippie wannabe who is extremely generous with exclamation points and hope. I’m a wife to my forever best friend, Aaron, that I met at a MuteMath concert. I have two miracle boys that keep me running on the daily, but I wouldn’t trade them for all the naps in the world.
Passion might as well be my middle name. I get so fired up about overall wellness in my life, my family’s lives, and of course for everyone I meet! I believe that wellness is a lifetime journey–it doesn’t happen overnight. But it is achieved daily by the healthy choices we make, one at a time.
I believe that overall wellness happens by healing your spirit, your soul (your mind/will/emotions), and your body. I truly believe that if just one of those areas is ill or in distress, the rest of them will follow. I spent most of my life in pain–spiritual, emotional, and physical pain. Nothing seemed to be able to touch this pain. I was even a Christian and thought that because I believed in Jesus, my pain would just all go away. Sometimes that happens! But little did I know, that the day I received Jesus Christ as my Savior was just the beginning of the journey. He wants to do a full healing in us, which I believe is essentially the process of sanctification–it’s a lifetime journey that isn’t complete until the day we step our toes onto Heaven’s soil. And if there’s more of Him I can have in this life by receiving His healing in all these areas, then I will do whatever He asks so that I can look more and more like Him on this Earth and I can help manifest the Kingdom right here on Earth, as it is in Heaven so that EVERYONE can walk in freedom. Amen.
Three years ago I went through a healing process with the ministry Oaks Rising. That day I received healing in all areas of my life and finally the voices in my head were gone, and my pain was finally gone. It was like I had been wearing a heavy blanket, and finally someone took it off of me and I could run and dance and play! Then I began the next phase of my healing journey–mind renewal, learning how to stay free, and learning how to live in community. I think of this as discipleship. It’s been an on-going journey, and I have grown incredibly comfortable with it all being a process. I am so passionate about this process, so I became a certified Freedom Coach with Oaks Rising so that I could help others experience freedom!
So what does this mean for you? Well, where do you need healing? I am not a healer. I am not a doctor. Jesus is your answer. But He’s given me many tools and resources to help you–and I’ve used them all so I know they work. 😉
Maybe you are struggling with your thoughts and you need mind renewal. I encourage you to check out my Blog. This is where you’re going to find the nuggets you need to bring peace to your mind, will, and emotions. Scripture is key, and I’ll be utilizing that to help you renew your mind and to be able to think about things that are lovely and pure.
Maybe you need healing in your body. I’ve been using essential oils for 3 years, and now this year I finally made the switch to Young Living essential oils. I did a lot of research on oil quality (ask me about that!), and I finally realized that quality is much better than quantity, so I ditched my old oils and invested in the good stuff! We have now swapped out almost all the chemicals in our home in an effort to become as #chemicalfreein2017 as possible. We either use Young Living products (toothpaste, mouthwash, etc) or I make it myself (baby wipes, dishwasher tabs, laundry soap, fabric softener, dish soap, foaming hand soap, face wipes, body wash, etc). Since we have eliminated so many chemicals and have begun utilizing Young Living oils to support our immune/digestive/respiratory/etc systems, we have seen our overall wellness improve drastically. If you’re interested in learning more about ushering wellness into your body through the oils or other tools that I’m utilizing, then the Oils page is what you will want to follow.
Maybe you need healing for the whole thing. Maybe you’ve struggled with your mind betraying you, or your body keeping you from enjoying life, and maybe there’s this giant part of you that feels like something is just wrong with you. I was there, friend. I felt broken, and I felt like nobody could ever fix me. But you know what? Jesus can. And I have the tools and resources to help you. If this is you, then the Freedom Coaching page is for you. Let’s schedule your first freedom session and get you some relief. You were never created to live this way. You don’t HAVE to live this way anymore. I’ve been set free so that I can help set you free. I’m not scared of your baggage, friend. Let’s give all the pieces of your broken heart to Jesus, together, and we’ll watch Him heal you and set you free so that you can do all the things that have been burning in your heart!
I would be honored to be on this wellness journey with you. I can’t wait to see you set free in all the areas you feel that you need freedom in (and maybe even in some that you don’t even know you need it!). I am not perfect, I am in process. But we can be in process together, if you want. 🙂
