With the coming of warmer weather in Rutherford County comes the busyness of the home buying and staging season! Niki Hensley of The Hensley Group knows all about that as she's right in the middle of Home Staging and Real Estate Investing with her husband, Eric. While she's seeing lots of business investments come and go, she's in on an even bigger investment -- personally investing in the lives of teenage girls on the softball team at LaVergne High School.
Niki has served as the FCA Character Coach for the softball team for a few months now, and says spending time with the athletes is her favorite part of serving in the role. She adds that she enjoys being a Character Coach because FCA puts Christ in places where He is not normally found.
"I wish I had a Character Coach in high school," she says, adding that she ran track and participated in Cross County. "So I decided, 'Why not go back to my high school and be that person that I needed, be that person for someone else.'"
Niki enjoys sharing Jesus with others and follows Him in her life because she says, "He has came through time and time again in my life and in the lives of those around me. He gives me joy and hope in my life."
Niki's favorite Bible story is about Daniel. In the Bible the story of Daniel in the lions' den in chapter 6 is paired with the story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego and the "fiery furnace" in Daniel 3. The stories include the jealousy of the non-jews, a kingly ruling requiring Jews to compromise their religion on pain of death, and divine deliverance.
Niki and her husband, Eric, have been married for nine years. They have three children, Caroline, 8, Averie, 7, and Christian, 5. Niki enjoys running, working, and hanging out with the family. Other favorites include:
