Before I get started about who I am, I would sincerely like to thank my husband, Andy, and girls, Katie and Kendall. Thank you for believing in the vision God has placed in my heart and being willing to go on this crazy, beautiful journey of faith into God’s destiny with me. I would not have taken this huge leap of faith without you beside me because this is OUR journey as a family. May God fulfill every dream and desire of your heart. I love you infinity times infinity!
HELLO WORLD, I’M NICOLE KARY.
I am a beautiful mess in the middle of God’s remodeling work. I know that sounds corny to say, but it is true. I’m no theologian, I don’t have a major deliverance story, nor am I completely victorious in every area of my life. I’m simply a girl that has fallen madly, deeply in love with Jesus and want to share it with the world! Like Buddy the Elf says, “I’m in love, I’m in love, I’m in love and I don’t care who knows it!”
I grew up in a Christian home and came to know Jesus at an early age. I knew Him, but I hadn’t received His revelation light to illuminate my heart. I had been involved in church leadership, serving in different capacities, for most of my life, but it wasn’t until I began serving as a Preschool & Nursery Ministry Pastor that God began opening up my eyes to who He truly was and how He saw me.
Since 2008, I have been serving in Children’s Ministry as the Preschool and Nursery Director/Pastor at our church. God had called me to help lay the spiritual foundation in these precious little lives because (His words) “if the foundation’s off, the whole house is off.” It has been a messy, beautiful, undignified process and I have learned much more than I’ve taught—seriously—it has been my wilderness and I do not have one single regret about being in Preschool Ministry for so long because I have truly learned what being childlike means. The encounters I began having with Jesus led me deeper and deeper into relationship with Him. To this day, the more intimate I become with my Savior, the more I fall in love with Him. He has become my source and my song.
In January 2018, I began to feel a sudden shifting in my spirit—a pull that was drawing me out of Preschool Ministry to the sanctuary and I knew that God was calling me to something bigger. I had begun leading Women’s Bible Studies and had begun leading a study through the Song of Songs in the Passion Translation and could sense the Holy Spirit now calling me to lead adults instead of preschoolers. By April, after many confirmations, I stepped out to pursue the things God was asking me to pick up: writing and speaking about the transformational love of God that frees us to be who He has created us to be. My story is simply a testimony for others to gain their victory. I really just want to introduce everyone to the amazing Jesus that I have come to know. My hope for this blog is to create a place where we realize that being naked isn’t something to be feared or ashamed of, but to be recognized and acknowledged so that Jesus can bring freedom to our captive hearts.
Let’s get free! Let’s get real! Let’s get naked!
