Author, Speaker, and Eternal Optimist
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you find something here that will encourage you in your faith, family, friendships, and fun.
Kathy Nickerson writes from her home in rural Missouri, where she lives with her husband of more than forty years. They are the parents of four children who grew up to become their best friends and who have given them fourteen grandchildren, so far. Kathy’s eternal optimism comes from her mother, The Nicest Woman on Earth, and from a deep faith in the God who made Light to shine from darkness.
Kathy’s articles have appeared in several magazines and her books are available online and in local bookstores.
