A bit about me

I'm a wife, mother, sister, daughter, friend and Jesus follower

Hi I'm Nicci,

I am a Mum to three gorgeous children, Michael, Abbey and Lucy.  Each one gives me a run for my money in the 'motherhood stakes' – you could say life has not been dull. Cameron is my adoring husband, who has an amazing story of his own to tell, and together our life has given us much joy, love, laughter and grief – certainly, our fair share of grief. 

Discovering Jesus at the age of 36 opened up my world, allowing me to look at my life through a different lens.  At that time, devastated dreams had me wishing for an end, but suddenly I was able to look into my future with hope.

My life is far from normal, some may say absolutely abnormal, but I find God shows up in it every day.  Through the good, the bad and the down right heart-breaking, He is there giving me a new way of looking at things, whispering to me, “We’re in this together.”

Over the last 13 years I have been learning what it means to walk through life with God.  Early on in my faith walk I discovered a Holy Spirit who interacted with me on a daily basis. An inaudible voice I somehow could hear, one that would comfort me and sometimes send me out to comfort others. The first five years of my faith life saw me embark on an exciting adventure with Jesus, each day wondering where He would lead me and what we would do next!

The next four years, after moving our family interstate, I wondered if He had moved with me. I felt an emptiness or maybe a quietness that wasn’t there before.  I think in the beginning I thought it would be just like it had been, but here in this new environment I felt something like a cap had been put on my spirit; or more precisely His.

I came to the conclusion that all my experiences of faith were just that, personal experience and it became important to me to understand God through the quiet times also. So,I set out on a quest to enrich my head knowledge.  I enrolled in night classes at our church and then spent two years at Hillsong College completing a Cert III in Ministry. 

What I have learned, in a nutshell is this: the journey of life was never meant to be walked alone.  Jesus came, died and rose again so we could have a life in relationship with God.  That there is a Father in heaven, ready and waiting to be invited in for the ride. 

I feel called to tell everyone about the power found in an ‘earth-time’ relationship with Jesus.  He speaks to me, carries me, clears my vision and gives me strength when I am sure none will be found.  That life with Him is an absolute adventure no matter your circumstances; that beauty absolutely can be brought to life from ashes.

I have a book almost written and many more words inside me to share and that is what I plan to do here.

Rainbow Moments to Real Life

When I began blogging ten years ago it was for fun and, if truth be known, self-counselling. It began with me blogging regularly, stopping each day to find my ‘rainbow moment’ and sharing it with you. 

Now, I guess as my faith has matured the blog has too.

My Story

Magazine advertising is the most versatile, but this is solely dependent on the size of your ad and how many other ads compete with yours. More page space gives you more creative space. Businesses often become known today through effective marketing. The marketing may be in the form of a regular news item or half column society news in the Sunday newspaper. The marketing may be in the form of a heart to heart talk with Mr. Brown on his prominent local television show.

Stuck But Not Alone

This is going to be an honesty moment and my hope is, that within my honesty, you might find some space to breathe. I have been stuck for about three months now. I have been stuck for about three months now. Not completely bogged but definitely spinning my wheels a little ...

Hope Found

Later that same day I had an experience I can only describe like this … I felt as though someone had reached out to me, in my mind, tapped me on the shoulder and caused me to look back to that moment in my day. As realisation set in, tears welled in my eyes. Not a flood of hopelessness, like in the church car park, but in fact the opposite, a tsunami of hope.

Cane-d and Able

Today I was reminded once again that God is so close to me and is interested in every small detail. He knows my heart and how it might break. He knows all things before they happen and He has me safely in the palm of His hand. He is a God of the details.
