While in college, she taught and tutored Latin and developed a love for Biblical Hebrew and Classical Greek. She was born and raised on a poultry, cattle, and timber farm in Nacogdoches, with her 9 siblings. Her hobbies include working outside on her family’s farm, playing games with her siblings, nieces, and nephews, and trying to play jazz piano.

Gregg and Angie have been faithfully married for twenty-one years and have been abundantly blessed with raising Joshua (18), Jacob (16), and Elizabeth ( 8 ). As a family, the Nichols enjoy traveling, horse shows, working the ranch, boating, and playing with all their dogs and puppies. One of their family’s life verses is, “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine according to his power that is at work in us” (Ephesians 3:20).
