Hello! I’m Nikole Mitchell, and I am a public speaker, writer, community organizer, and social innovator. I am also a recovering people-pleaser, a recently out queer person, and a woman trying to find and use her voice in this world. I am also a social justice junkie and a lover of our global human family. Here is where I attempt to share my heart, my dreams, my struggles, and my frustrations about living in this beautiful yet broken world as a biracial queer person of faith. Sounds fun, doesn’t it?
I’m married to an incredible human named John, and we have three awesome kiddos, Mercy (7) and Eden (4), and Judah (2). Below is a true family picture.
After living in North America, Europe, and Asia, St. Paul, Minnesota is now “home”.
I have been a high school teacher, birth doula, bar tender, and world-changing businesswoman by night, but my biggest dream in life is to become a traveling public speaker on the intersections of faith and being LGBTQ. I love preaching and writing, some of which can be found at Sojourners and Red Letter Christians. I have a youtube channel where I’m doing a mini-series on my coming-out journey and how I approach the clobber passages in the Bible.
This journey is hard, lonely, and a little scary, but it also filled with love and warmth and new beginnings. And I’m grateful for that.
Welcome to the beautiful mess. 🙂
