Finding JOY when life is HARD with Nicole Jacobsmeyer

As moms, sometimes we have no other option than to power through everything. We have other people besides ourselves to think about and we put ourselves on the back burner because our kids, our spouse, our families, our job and everything else is more important.For Nicole, the signs of her disease were hidden under the exhaustion of having to raise three little children, and it wasn’t until her oldest son noticed a lump on her neck, that she went to get herself checked up. The news of having cancer came on top of all the chaos in her life – suffering a miscarriage, having to move to another city with her husband and taking care of her kids.Nicole Jacobsmeyer is a proud mother of three boys, all under five years of age. Since becoming a mom, her life mantra has been, “Embrace the Chaos”, spiritually, mentally, physically and emotionally. Less than a year ago, she found out she has cancer, but her faith in God and her strength and peace, have helped Nicole survive the rough times.S...
