Rest & Digest

When we have too much norepinephrine in our system we are in “fight or flight” mode. This neurotransmitter inhibits digestion. Our gut needs to be at rest to digest. In this time of extended stress and uncertainty another way you can boost your immune system is to actively focus on relaxation before eating.

Currently, with this quarantine and the corona virus (COVID-19), we are all a little bit in a state of perpetual flight or fight.

Try not to stress eat

Instead, take some Continue reading

“When You Call—I’ll Be There”

March 31, 2020
“When you call on me—-I’ll be there...”

It’s like the whole world is on pause right now. America, paused. What a golden opportunity to search our own heart and soul and clean house so to speak. It’s a time to mend, a time to pray, and time to rest, a time to be, a time to heal, and a time to laugh dance and even sing. Because when you know that God has the whole world in His hands you don’t have to worry or be afraid.Many people are afraid to Continue reading

Just Run...

Have you ever seen a child who had a toy in their hand and just ran and ran and ran and played with that toy in their hand? The toy was apart of everything they did. Do you know what you’re seeing when you see this because it is so much more than a child with a toy. You’re seeing a person in love. You’re seeing a kid who adores their toy. It is an object of their affection.

When my youngest child was two years old he always had Continue reading

Means and Measures

March 11, 2020


Wherever there is excessive rules or control, there is a spirit of witchcraft behind it. Does that mean a controlling person is practicing witchcraft? No, not outright anyway. What it means is there is a demonic principality present and influencing choices and decisions. There are rules taught by man and man made that seem good, and maybe they are good, but they are not necessarily “Biblical”, but maybe are more socially expected. But this does not mean it is from God! Sometimes man made and socially accepted rules Continue reading

About Me


My name is Nicole and the Broken and Unspoken things have fueled my wings and given me something brave, something bold. I do believe as we persevere through the unspoken difficulties in life we can find our voice and that voice can be used to help others take flight. I’m a lover of the pen and the ink I wield I hope lavishes encouragement on the minds, hearts and souls of others. Welcome to my home! I plan to use the space to make you feel comfortable, refreshed and blessed. My encouragement intended to help you find that better version of you that has been there all along. I am a writer of prose, poems, scriptural exhortations and all things fitness and nutrition. Mind. Body. Heart. Soul. It is all connected! So come in and make yourself at home. This is a Safe Haven and Refuge for others who have been broken, too.
