Hi, I’m Nicole Smithee

I speak at digital and in-person events helping others experience Jesus, grow in their faith and discover their purpose.

Through personalized coaching, I help Christian women lead bravely and boldly without sacrificing their health and wellbeing. I also help communicators find their voice and connect authentically with their audiences.

Helping Leaders Thrive

I am passionate about helping leaders thrive in their calling! With over 20 years of ministry and business leadership experience, I know just how demanding leading others can be. Without the right support and encouragement, every leader is susceptible to isolation, discouragement, insecurity, and burnout. 

That doesn’t have to be your story. You were made for more, and Jesus has called you to better! And I’m here to support you! I offer a few different coaching and consulting packages that include: 

  • Lead with Love 6 Month Cohort and Coaching 
  • 1-on-1 Communication Coaching
  • 1-on-1 Life and Leadership Coaching

Coaching Packages

1-on-1 Communication Coaching

Leverage your unique strengths, connect with your listeners, and speak from compassion and conviction.

Interested in having me speak at your event?

I would be honored to speak at your upcoming event!

For the last 20 years, have been speaking at digital and in-person events, conferences, and weekend church services– such as Lakewood Church, Follow Conference, Grace City Church, Oasis Church, Liberty Church, Never the Same, She Rises Conference, and She is Free Conference — with audiences including church congregations, pastors and ministry leaders, Christian women, youth and young adults, as well as entrepreneurs. Most recently, I was featured as a regular Bible teacher for the YouVersion Verse of the Day in 2022-2023.


I have spent over 20 years building the local church and speaking at conferences, churches, and events around the world. I first served in executive leadership at Oasis Church in Los Angeles, California, and continue to serve in executive leadership at Liberty Church Global in NYC. In 2018, I co-founded Iridescent Women, to equip and empower women to flourish, and served as its CEO for five years. 

I am the co-author of Brilliance Awakened: ​​​​21 Devotions to Embrace Your God-Given Potential. I co-host The Iridescent Podcast to encourage and equip women around topics of faith, leadership, and motherhood, and have most recently been featured as a regular contributor on YouVersion’s Verse of the Day.

I am  passionate about helping leaders thrive in their calling, and provide personal and practical coaching and community for Christian female leaders through the Lead with Love Coaching and Cohort. I also provide communication coaching for pastors, ministers, and public speakers.  

I live in Dallas, Texas, with my husband Ben and our daughter Quinn. They remain my greatest joy and first priority. In my spare time, I enjoy quality time with friends and family, getting lost in a good book, being active, and exploring new places.
