Nicole Venzke Peterson, too-young widow, passionate and exhausted mother of three and stepmom of two, long time sufferer of control freakism, self-proclaimed smart girl who is a slow learner when it comes to life lessons, lifelong Christian who has often spoken the right answers but is now just learning to truly listen for them, is a published writer, podcaster, and blogger. Since losing her husband, father of her children, best friend, and running partner of nearly fifteen years in September 2016, Nicole finds purpose in living to tell about love, loss, and life, authentically and productively. Follow Me, I Don’t Know Where I’m Going is Nicole’s first book. Nicole grew up in White Bear Lake, a northeast suburb of St. Paul, Minnesota, lived and worked for fifteen years with her late husband, Tim, in and around Lakeville, a southern suburb of Minneapolis, Minnesota, and now resides in Altoona, a small town outside of Eau Claire, Wisconsin, with her sweet kiddos and her husband, Greg. To be clear, Nicole is and always will be a Minnesota Vikings fan.
