Our Story
Equipped and Effective Podcast

Nice to meet you!

Hey there! I’m Nicki and this is my husband Tim.

With over 15 years of Leadership and Teaching experience, we have discovered that an overwhelming majority of people live without a true sense of purpose or an awareness of their personal significance. Experience has exposed us to a variety of emotional and relational struggles that exist because of this. Without support and the right tools to help individuals discover a life of confidence, purpose, and hope the negative generational cycles are left unbroken.

Equipped exists to help you Discover your true identity, Live life with purpose, and leave a lasting legacy. Our main course is packed full of biblical teachings, tools, and assessments that will help you move forward with confidence.

"...and the things that you have heard... Now teach these truths to other trustworthy people who will be able to pass them on to others."
~ 2 Timothy 2:2

What’s with the mountain theme?

So glad you asked! In Short, Tim and I are thrill seeking, push beyond our limits, try something new, come close to death (not really:), outdoor enthusiasts. Sometimes life feels a lot like climbing a mountain, but with the right tools, training, and help you can overcome any obstacle! Our big audacious dream is to take others on one of these outdoor adventures. Sometimes it’s necessary to push beyond our limits, it has a way of teaching us more about ourselves. As a matter of fact, many people don’t live with purpose, because they won’t leave their comfort zone (um I’ve been there). At some point, we must learn to embrace productive discomfort.
