Hi! I’m Nickolee and I’m so glad you have stopped by my blog!
I was born and raised in Mississippi and met the guy that I had always dreamed about my sophomore year of college. We both graduated from Mississippi College and knew the Lord was leading us to work overseas as church planters. During the process of preparing to go overseas and once there, the Lord gave Steve and I the awesome opportunity to raise our two beautiful girls – Ryleigh & Lyllian. We lived in Madagascar for 3 1/2 years and upon our return to the States (for what we thought was simply a 6 month furlough) I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. Though this diagnosis was a surprise to us we have complete confidence and peace that it is a part of our Savior’s plan. In July 2015, the diagnosis was lifted but another one has yet to fill it’s place. Through this journey, the Lord led us to Meridian (my hometown) where Steve is now the Associate Pastor of Missions & Discipleship at a local church and I am teaching kindergarten.
I really enjoy writing and while you will see some posts in regards to family life – my passion is writing posts that help me understand what God is teaching me. There’s something about seeing my thoughts form into actual words on a screen that help me have clarity.
I also love sharing with others about what He has done and is doing! Whether it’s a missions emphasis, women’s conference, or something in between – I’d be honored to come and share with your group! Please contact me @ graceandchocolatemilk@gmail(dot)com
I look forward to hearing from you!
He has been beyond faithful in growing & teaching me no matter where I am living or what I am doing. I firmly believe that we should all be lifelong learners and I’m so grateful for a Savior who is such a gracious teacher!
