Amazing Testimony from a Mercy Graduate

I just received this awesome update from 2007 Mercy graduate, Beth! Beth graduated with a Master’s Degree in College Student Personnel from Atlanta Tech University and is moving to Kansas to start working on a second Master’s Degree in Counseling. Beth also shared with me about one of her best friends, Brittany, coming to be a part of her graduation. Brittany is also a 2007 Mercy graduate. I think it is so cool to see Mercy graduates remain close friends even after leaving Mercy. Check out Beth’s email and graduation picture with Brittany below…

Dear Nancy,

I never would have dreamt three years ago, as I was sitting in Nashville, having only been there for a month, that three years later I would be doing what I am today. Just two days ago I walked across the stage and received my Master’s Degree in College Student Personnel. This is something I had always dreamed of but never thought would truly happen. My family was here with me to watch this momentous occasion occur. But even more special than that, my best friend and Mercy sister, Brittany was here to share this day with me. This is a friendship that would have never happened if you, Nancy, hadn’t listened to God’s calling nearly 30 years ago. This degree wouldn’t be happening if you hadn’t listened. I recently accepted a full-time position working at another university in Kansas where I will begin my second master’s degree in counseling with hopes of helping young women so they don’t have to walk down the same path I had to. God has really opened some amazing doors for me since my time at Mercy and I couldn’t be happier! Thank you for opening the doors and allowing me to find freedom in God and find a new life that is worth living.

Love,
Beth

Congratulations, Beth! I am so proud of you!
