We brought her home knowing that she had some pretty severe medical needs--but we were still unprepared for the emotional journey that would shape our story. I wanted to write about what it means to find home, and what makes a mother.(less)

I find inspiration in my next door neighbors and strangers I meet on airplanes. I'm a firm believer in the beauty and resilience of the human spirit, and I love to write about people discovering the capacity within themselves for deep love, unexpected forgiveness, and startling growth. We are world changers and culture makers. People inspire me endlessly.(less)

I was in kindergarten (the age I am in this photo!) when I knew I wanted to be a writer when I grew up. Books were already entertainment and wonder and escape. A million different worlds I wanted to explore. And I didn’t just want to experience each story, I wanted to create my own. […]

I really enjoyed this book. It's a contemplative read, a deep dive that explores the tangled (often dysfunctional) relationships between a group of former friends. Elliot does such a masterful job of exploring her characters that I felt fully connect ...more

I've heard this book called "bewitching" and it's absolutely true. It's a slow moving, tenderly told story that captured me from page one.

I inhaled this book. The raw emotion of a mother trying to protect her beloved child was so real on the page I literally could not put it down until I knew how it would end. Absolutely harrowing.

Nicole Baart, The Moment Between

“A life lived outside of the will of the Lord is like trying to climb a waterfall.”
Nicole Baart

“I wanted so much when I was young. I was an endless abyss of want, of need of desperate dreams for myself that defied logic. The promise of what was to come hung like rings around the moon on clear autumn nights; the future was unmistakeable. It was always there, glistening in the dark and suggesting that life was little more than climbing a ladder into the sky, where I could reach up with one hand and secure everything that I had ever hoped for in my grasping fingers.
Oh, I dreamed.
And they are not easy to give up, these dreams.”
Nicole Baart, Summer Snow

“So much of my life had been spent taking and taking and taking. Thinking it was all about me, believing that everything came down to me and how I felt, what I wanted. Even in my grasping attempts to know God, I did exactly that: I grasped. I sought. Sometimes I waited. But I never opened myself, spread my soul wide as an offering so He could come and capture me. I never let Him run strong fingers through my soil, watering it with His grace so my fruit could grow and grow above the weeds that threatened to choke it out.”
Nicole Baart, Summer Snow
