Graduate Gives Mercy a Voice

Mercy Ministries GraduateNicole graduated from Mercy Ministries in 2006. After graduation, she moved home to Williamsburg, VA. She is now attending school part-time at Liberty University and is working towards a degree in Family and Consumer Science with a teacher’s license. Nicole plans to teach Home Economics.

Nicole has a heart and desire to share to love of Christ with others and give back to other young women who are dealing with life-controlling issues. She became very involved with her local church as the youth assistant for her youth group. She said, “I love pouring into teen’s lives and showing them who they are in Christ!” She was able to speak on an eating disorder panel at the College of William and Mary and her testimony is included in one of the Mercy For books, Starved: Mercy for Eating Disorders.

Recently, Nicole’s church was looking for someone to share their testimony to the entire congregation. After seeing the change in Nicole’s life when she returned from Mercy Ministries, they knew Nicole’s testimony was evidence of a life changed by the transforming power of Christ. Soon after, another local church invited Nicole to give her testimony at a women’s breakfast. We are so proud of Nicole and we would like to thank her for giving Mercy Ministries a voice!
