Featured Newspaper Article on Mercy Graduate!

Today, I want to share with you about a young lady named Kaitlen who graduated from Mercy Ministries in 2004. The change in her life is absolutely amazing!!! On Saturday, there was an article on the front page of the Nashville Tennessean featuring Kaitlen. Please take the time to read her story, and feel free to leave a comment. We are so very proud of her and I know you will be too when you read all that she has overcome!

We are especially grateful for the couple, Allen and Melanie, who chose to take Kaitlen in as their very own daughter after she graduated from Mercy. Their paths crossed through the local church Kaitlen chose to be a part of, and because of all they have done for her, Kaitlen’s life is forever changed. Mercy got to play a part in her life early on, but this couple has made such a difference in her life that I wanted to give them a shout out along with Kaitlen who has courageously overcome so much. It reminds me of the scripture where the Apostle Paul talks about how some plant and some water, but God gives the increase. We know that Kaitlen’s future is so very bright!!! I am so proud of you Kaitlen!!
