Hey friends! I am Wren and I want to welcome you to the friends of a feather podcast! A podcast in which you will walk away encouraged by hearing God stories from my friends that I share! Each week, I chat with a friend who has a story to tell, a dream she is pursuing, or a passion to share with you. If this is the first time you’ve tuned in or if you’ve been joining in for a while, I am so glad you are here!
Today’s episode is with my guest Nicole Cole. Nicole is a wife, mom, lifestyle blogger, photographer, and co-shop owner. Nicole has creativity oozing out of her and she’s just the cutest thing, too.
I met Nicole through a mutual friend (thanks, Courtney!) at the Story & Soul Weekend. We were signed up to go to one of the same break out sessions and as we walked up the stairs and into the room, I asked Nicole about her story. She began to share with me with such ease and grace about how the Lord brought her through a season of waiting while they desired to grow their family. Nicole and her husband, Tyler walked through a failed adoption that was so devastating to them but they believe that each and every day was completely ordained by Him. By grace alone, they are now the parents of not one... but TWO children. Their sweet Campbell came home to them via adoption in late October 2016 and their Crawford girl was born in January of 2017. Yes, you did the math right. She has 2 two year olds!! She is able to stay home with them and she also does some photography work on the side. Her desire is to continually point to the faithfulness and goodness of Jesus. As you read her words, it is her desire that you would see Jesus and that you would boldly choose to follow Him in joyful obedience. Ya’ll, she’s the real deal. Nicole is also passionate about Biblical Literacy. Toward the end of our conversation, she gives us some ideas and practical resources for that and you will want to stay tuned in for those! Especially the FREE resource she mentions! Ok, so here’s my conversation with Nicole!
