She is the founder and director of Waiting for the One ministries. Nicole is the co-author of Waiting for the One and co-author of Waiting for the One Workbook with Dan Leitz. She speaks at many conferences, retreats, and various girls’ events. It is her desire to encourage girls to walk in the power of the Lord and know that it is not impossible to live a life of purity!
During high school, Nicole devoted her life to snowboarding, but right before this hobby became a profession, God asked her if she would give it up to serve Him. In 2003, she humbly gave up her greatest desire and life to serve Jesus. She married her first boyfriend whom she met in college and has pursued a life of purity. God has equipped her with incredible passion and insight to speak to girls about what it is like to give up everything, serve Him with your whole heart, and commit to a life of purity.
