This is me

I’m Nicole.

I’m a follower of Jesus. I try to consider Him in every action I take. We’ve had a lot of adventures together with lots of funny and hard stories to tell. Some of them at the same time.

I’m a wife. I’m married to my favorite person in the world, Aaron. He’s the one who tripled the length of my last name. He’s a steady, considerate man who is behind me and in front of me pulling me into the ceramics business. He’s intentional and watches out for me in every way.

I’m a mom. My daughter, Eddie, was born in March 2017. I have brown hair and brown eyes. She has blonde hair and blue eyes. I don’t know what that’s about, but she’s adorable.

I’m an artist. I never thought that would be a statement that earned me anything, but it has been true of me since I could hold a pencil. God’s still showing me what being an artist looks like in building relationships and becoming more the person He wants me to be. I love making bold, simple, beautiful pieces that everyone can appreciate.

I’m a teacher. I have an art education degree from IPFW. I taught in Kigali, Rwanda for a year, K-12, and at Central Christian in Fort Wayne for a year and a half. I love teaching and making art enjoyable and less intimidating for everyone. Some of my favorite moments have been seeing students, who compare themselves to others, begin to do their best and see improvement. It lets me know that I’m doing my job well.

And hope does not put us to shame (disappoint us), because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.” Romans 5:3b-5 OK. So this week I haven’t really been suffering. I mean I …
