Hello to all who have stopped by to read my blog and those who follow my blog. Thank you so much. It’s such an encouragement when people visit and comment on your posts. I started the blog a few years ago. At that time the world of blogging was completely new to me. I’m ashamed to admit it but I didn’t really know what a blog was. It was God that inspired me to share the words and dreams that He speaks to me and has given me over the years with others. I made lots of excuses not to start the blog (not knowing how was the big one) but in the end I googled “how to write a blog” and was led to WordPress and the rest as they say is history.
Sometimes you just have to take that first step and trust God with the rest. I love reading blogs from writers all over the world and sharing our stories, ideas and encouragement. It’s inspiring and challenging. It makes my realise that I know so little. Blogging opens up my world to enable me to connect with others. I have connected with some incredible people since starting my blog.
So about me. My name is Nicola. In a nutshell I am..A Follower of Jesus, Wife, Mum, Lawyer who loves life, having fun, travel, good food, good beer, music, my dog, (the cat sometimes), my campervan, puzzles, walking and writing. I’m in my fifties now but young at heart.
I live in England in the Midlands where I have resided for the last 30 years but was originally from the South West. I was born in Somerset but moved to Scotland when just a baby as my Dad was Scottish. We lived in Fife until I was about 9 and then moved back to Somerset. I moved to the Midlands with my husband’s job and we have settled here and raised our two daughters. I’m very fortunate to have a wonderful husband who is also a great chef so I’m completely spoiled. It will be our 30th wedding anniversary this year in 2022.
I became a Christian in the summer of 1976, was baptised in water on 3rd December 1978 and also baptised in the Holy Spirit on 24th February1979. I received the gift of tongues from the Holy Spirit at an early age and have been blessed with other gifts of the Holy Spirit. My family were Christians and a mix of Pentecostalists (my mum) and Baptists (my dad). I love Jesus and want to share the good news of the gospel, encourage and hopefully inspire fellow believers and others to follow Christ and grow in the knowledge of God through Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit. I am passionate about prayer and want to step into all God has for me to do for Him. I hope my posts are a blessing to others.
