About Erin & NikkiHosts of the Glass Half Full Podcast
About Our Podcast
Life spills out. We start the day filling our cups: our morning coffee, our kids’ milk, a bottle of water. Enough to keep us going. We might end the day with a glass of wine and know our cup is full with memories, thanksgivings, regrets, or wishes for a do-over. The rhythm of emptying and filling, being poured out and feeling so full you can barely hold it all in, happens in the living of each day. Spilled out, Filled up. Let’s talk about what fills your cup.
Glass Half Full is sponsored and produced by Faithlab.
Erin Robinson Hall
Teacher, a Baptist minister, a writer, a Mom, a wife, and a doctoral student
Erin Robinson Hall is and forever will be the boss of her (adult) younger sister and brother. She has been a classroom teacher in rural NC, urban Dallas, and suburban Atlanta. Erin is a daydreamer disguised as a detailed organizer. She is the mom to a busy preschooler and wife to the greatest guy, who happens to be a pastor. When she wears her pastor’s wife “hat,” it looks a little different than most: Erin is also a preacher.
She does not sit in the same pew from one Sunday to the next, but has been known to bring all manner of folks into the pew beside her. She is a strong believer that a little dancing in the kitchen can make the world a better place, so Beyonce and Michael Jackson, among others, are regulars in her home.
You can find Erin at her blog, erinrobinsonhall.com. She has also written for NextSunday Resources, Baptist Women in Ministry, and Faith Element. She most recently appeared in Atlanta’s 2015 Listen to Your Mother Show.

Nikki Carroll Hardeman
Director of Admissions at McAfee School of Theology at Mercer University, Personality at Faithelement, Minister, Mom, Pursuer of Hobbies
Nikki wants to live in a world where people wait their turn, vulnerability is considered to be brave, people cheer more than they criticize, and time is limitless.
Because Nikki has a wide degree of interests she has had the privilege to serve in many capacities. She has served as minister to youth, young adults, and homebound seniors, as well as an Associate Coordinator at a state denominational organization. She writes and films small group curriculum for Faithelement, and is now serving in Admissions at the McAfee School of Theology at Mercer University. Nikki also enjoys preaching and leading retreats as another way to fulfill her vocational calling.
When she’s not pursuing her vocational goals through ministry, Nikki can be found chasing after her children, bing watching something on Netflix, or collecting a new hobby. She has enjoyed learning about baking, cooking, sewing, quilting, belly dancing, yoga, meditation, and a myriad of other small projects. Some hobbies last only for a season, while others stick around for a while. However, Nikki likes too many things to stick with any one hobby for very long.
