Responding to Nudges from the Spirit: Anne Neilson & Nikki Speer

Jesus Calling: Stories of Faith

Have you ever felt pulled towards something, but you’re not sure what? Maybe God was nudging you to pursue the calling He has for you. Artist Anne Neilson, famous for her angel paintings, has felt those nudges all throughout her life, starting when she was a little girl and knew she was meant to be an artist. Now looking back, Anne can see God’s fingerprints all over her life, and how He shaped her art into a ministry beyond what she ever imagined, including the inspiration to write a new devotional called Anne Neilson’s Angels. Nikki Speer, founder of the nonprofit Redefined Courage, has watched many women in her family battle with breast cancer. When Nikki noticed that her mom—the woman she’d always seen as the most radiant in the room—no longer felt beautiful, she realized God was prompting her toward a new calling: to design clothing for women dealing with breast cancer that was not only comfortable and allowed them to heal, but also helped them feel confident in their fight.  Links, Products, and Resources Mentioned: Jesus Calling: Stories of Faith television show Jesus Calling Podcast Jesus Calling Devotional Jesus Calling Magazine Jesus Calling for Kids Past guest: Delilah Upcoming guest: Michael and Zina Goodin of Old Friends Senior Dog Sanctuary Episode sponsor: Operation Christmas Child Build a shoebox for a child online at Samaritan’s Purse.org/occ Anne Neilson Anne Nielson's Angels: Devotions and Art to Encourage, Refresh, and Inspire Steven Curtis Chapman Kathie Lee Gifford Nikki Speer Redefined Courage Breast cancer Lymphedema Interview Quotes: “There were times that I really questioned, Is this what God has called me to do?”  - Anne Neilson “God has put these people in my path. He weaves us all together, and it's for a purpose that we might not even know.” - Anne Neilson “Words are powerful—the words that come out of our mouth, the words that are spoken to our friends, our children, our colleagues, our employees, to ourselves.“ - Anne Neilson “These angels do bring comfort and healing through the power and the presence of the Holy Spirit, through art. God is the master Artist. He is the master Creator.” - Anne Neilson “We were walking out of the mall, and I made the bold promise that I would design clothing for [my mom] so that she could feel beautiful.” - Nikki Speer “This is not a, ‘Man, I drew this sticky note, and this amazing thing was created.’ There were a lot of samples, and there was a lot of learning and growing and changing and mistakes, but a lot of God working.” - Nikki Speer “When I was growing up, my mom would tell me, ‘You should always leave a conversation knowing more about the other person than they know about you.’” - Nikki Speer “I have these What if? moments that well up inside of me. But in quietness and trust truly is my strength. And those What if? moments become my Even if... moments with God.” - Nikki Speer  “I really do believe that if you are feeling right now--a nudge or a calling or prompting from God, that you should go for it. I have always said that it was in the obedience I found the blessing.” - Nikki Speer ___ Enjoy watching these additional videos from Jesus Calling YouTube channel: Audio Playlist: https://bit.ly/2PrbuwH Video Playlist: https://bit.ly/2PsmEkJ What’s Good?

Redefined Courage! Episode #12 with Nikki Speer

Triangle Radio Podcast

On todays episode Jordan talks with Nikki Speer of "Redefined Courage". They are a non-profit organization committed to gifting "HOPE", which is a post-operative shirt for women undergoing breast surgery. The idea to create this garment came to Nikki after a promise she made to her mother who had undergone 3 surgeries for breast cancer. Nikki recognized the limitations an individual has after this type of surgery and began designing a shirt that would be beautiful, comfortable and functional. To date they have been able to gift over 500 shirts to women worldwide. Jordan and I were completely riveted during the recording of this episode. Her story is truly amazing and inspiring.

Redefining Courage, With Nikki Speer

The Daring Woman Podcast

Breast cancer. Two of the scariest words in the English language. As of January 2019, there are more than 3.1 million women with a history of breast cancer in the U.S. A woman’s risk of breast cancer nearly doubles if she has a first-degree relative (mother, sister, daughter) who has been diagnosed with breast cancer. Less than 15% of women who get breast cancer have a family member diagnosed with it. (source https://www.breastcancer.org/symptoms/understand_bc/statistics)Nikki Speer understands these statistics very clearly. Her aunt, grandmother, and mother all had breast cancer. Because Nikki was at such a high risk for developing it herself, she took the courageous route of having a preventative double mastectomy. Now she shares her story to give women hope, courage, and love.
