Nicole C. Mullen Rocks the House!

I can’t even begin to tell you how amazing it was this morning as Nicole C. Mullen and her special friends spent the first half of their day with the staff and girls in our Nashville home. Many people know Nicole C. Mullen as the award winning music artist, but this morning we experienced her as a powerful teacher of God’s Word. She shared her personal testimony and spoke very candidly about the need for us to forgive people who hurt us, trust God when we don’t understand, and always remember that “we get to the other side because we choose to trust Him in the middle.”

After Nicole finished her teaching, she blessed us with her music and a special drama presentation which included teenage girls who are in her year-long mentorship program. It was especially impactful to see these teenage girls who travel with Nicole demonstrate the power of God’s Word in their lives as they quoted whole passages of scripture that they had memorized. These young girls also encouraged our residents to make God’s Word a top priority in their lives.

Afterwards, Nicole and her team hung around to spend personal time with the girls, pose for pictures, and personally autograph the 8x10 promotional pictures that she brought for each girl. I can honestly say that this was one of the most powerful times we have ever had at Mercy with a guest! The highest compliment that I can give Nicole C. Mullen is that she is a real deal Christian!!! A special thanks to Nicole and her girls for taking time to impact all of us at Mercy.
