First Blog Post!

Here it goes: I’m launching a blog!

Nicole wearing sunflower ears in a white and flowery dress standing in front of green trees with a large smile on her face as she just lost her fair from chemotherapy.

I’m excited!

With 8 million different things to do on a daily basis,  how could adding something else {like blogging} be feasible? If you’re like me, sometimes the laundry gets “fluffed” 3-5 extra cycles before I have the time or energy to take it out and fold it. So,

Why would I start a blog?

and

Why would you want to be a part of it?

I want to share experiences with you that I’ve had so you know you’re not alone: the good, the bad, and the ugly.. and the funny. God has changed my life forever through cancer and I want to share that with you!nicole upload 6

You or someone you know probably has/had cancer. It affects all of us. I hope to bring my experience, things I learned, and lots of love. And even more than that, I want to hear from you: what you are experiencing, what your needs are, and talk you through your journey as a friend.

There are so many trials, heartache, and difficulties that we see and face each day. I want to bring lots of love, joy, hope, encouragement, {and sparkle} that stems from faith in Jesus.  He has been everything to me through this.

Are you tired of people shutting you down when you’re hurting? Slapping on the band-aid of “count your blessings” or “be more thankful”? I want you to be heard and loved {just as Jesus does for you} as you share your stories, struggles, celebrations, laughs, and tears and then we can heal together{in the way it’s supposed to be done}. I am here to listen and talk with you through every hill and valley.

So even if my laundry has to get fluffed 10 times before I take it out to fold it, I know that this what I’m being called to do.

My goal is to bring value, joy, faith, laughs, a listening ear, and realness into your life.

I invite you to enter your email address and “subscribe”.Let’s grow, laugh, heal, and change the world together.

Love always, Nicole Body

  1. Many thanks Nicole for taking time to blog. It is a gift to read as you journey. It is a gift to hear about what has been said to you that is helpful and that which is not helpful. I find it so inspirational as you share your deep faith.

  5. Nicole, I hope to meet you when you return to CO! I have given to your campaign on behalf of your husband, Ofr Body, whom I “met” while being pulled over in my neighborhood, on my way to an oncology-related surgical consult appointment. He told me he would be praying for me. A year later, we met again when my husband and I attended the Castle Rock Citizens Police Academy, and I got to share with him how that blessed me to the core!!

    In any case, I too am a cancer CONQUEROR, and I thought it would amazing to meet up and share our stories with each other and the world! 💗 I live in CR, so feel free to contact me anytime. 😊

    • Marsha, you are so sweet to be part of this journey and for your words of encouragement. All the glory goes to God in this. Wes and I could not have done this without Him. He gave us strength in our weakness and was always close when we didn’t know what was next. So thankful for you! God bless you!!!
