GET TO KNOW ME
Nikki Schaefer is Director of Heart of a Child Ministries, a ministry that was inspired by her daughter Grace at age seven during her prayer time. This ministry makes and sells prayer pillows and other life giving art work and brings live ultrasounds into schools - speaking God's word, "that we are made in His image, known in our mother's wombs, and designed for a purpose and a plan (www.heartofachildministries.org)."
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11.
Nikki shares her home with her husband, Bernie, their six children, five kids (dairy goats that is), forty-something chickens, two dogs, three barn cats, one bunny and a parakeet. She and her family love learning and living off the land, breeding and selling animals and raising gardens (goto www.schaeferfamilyfarms.org).
In her spare time, Nikki loves to share her life with others through her presentations, writings, artwork, and radio interviews (goto above link to see articles, illustrations, and radio interviews).
Nikki has a masters degree in social work with an art therapy and family therapy emphasis. She has an undergraduate degree in journalism, fine arts and Spanish. She gives thanks to God for all of the blessings in her life.
