My name is Nicole Poyner. I live in Citrus County Florida and love it. I am defined by three things in my life. First, my church Living Waters UPC in Inverness. Secondly, I get the honor of being a mother to my daughter. Last, but definitely not least, I am a wife to a wonderful husband. God, mother, and wife. That is what defines me and gives me purpose. Things are not always perfect, but with these three things they are always worth it.
