Hi, I’m Nikki. I started Legacy Ladies my freshman year of college at Southern Methodist University (SMU) in 2014. I asked five of my friends to join me in the pursuit of equipping women with biblical wisdom and we published articles on this site with that aim every week.
This tradition continued for several years, with a new group of women by my side each year, sharing their stories and struggles and calling women to deeper devotion. The topics we have covered are as varied as the women who wrote about them – worship, evangelism, singleness, tattoos, prayer, depression, lust, disordered eating, conflicts, apologetics, religious freedom – you name it. (Ladies, I want to thank you for all the wisdom you’ve poured into this well over the years, and please know that you always have an open invitation to do so.)
I took a pause with Legacy Ladies in the summer of 2017 (is three years still considered a pause?). I can’t believe it’s been that long. I guess time just got away from me. I’ve been at a job I absolutely love for four years. I’ve moved around several times. I’ve dated, and broken up. I’ve experienced tragedy, and new life. My community has changed and I started serving in new ministries. I’ve just been trying to be faithful.
It’s crazy to me that I’ve never put pen to paper about the issues I would now say I am most passionate about. So it’s time.
As the 2020 presidential election nears, I’ll be sharing my political journey and thoughts. Also prepare for many words on feminism, critical theory, abortion (as always), and a guest writer here and there.
I have been saved by grace and am convinced that following Jesus leads to freedom. My simple desire is to share God’s Truth with everyone I know, that they may find life, now and forever.
With love and passion,
