I’m Nicole and I’m so glad you’re here! I’ve been on a crazy journey of discerning God’s call in my life which led me here, to Courage Hope Love.

I’m a writer, both fiction and nonfiction and I hope to one day have books published in both! My blog blossomed out of a time of change and a desire to spread the message God placed on my heart in the meantime. And it has turned into something so much greater than I could have ever imagined!

I’m married to this amazing guy, Eric (pictured above). We met in our last year of college-and I’m so glad we did! He has been my encourager through everything and God has grown our marriage in so many ways. We live in beautiful Lancaster County, PA and I absolutely love it here!

I don’t mind the wafting smells of farmland and the back-road traffic jams behind a tractor or buggy – the scenes are breathtaking and the people are amazing.

About the Blog

Courage Hope Love was an idea that came to me one night. I had been mulling over thoughts of starting a blog and while trying to fall asleep, it all clicked. I dove in and here we are today. I love this space where I can write what’s on my heart, connect with so many amazing people and grow a ministry of hope.

My hope is that at Courage Hope Love you will find encouragement, fellowship and guidance as you walk through the many ups and downs that come with this faith in an amazing God. I’ve been through many trials in my life and, through it all, God is teaching me about His soul-changing, life-altering grace and love. When I struggled, I’d always wished for a community where I could find encouragement and guidance and so here it is-a place for just that!
