Mercy Founder Gives Three Graduates a Big Shout Out!

Mercy Ministries recently had a graduation at our Nashville location, and three of our graduates from the past showed up to help us celebrate! We are so proud of all three of these incredible women who are realizing their dreams and fulfilling the purpose God has for them.

During the graduation ceremony, each of these girls took the time to encourage our Nashville staff and residents with their powerful stories. We wanted to take the time to highlight one of the girls’ stories for you.

Georgianna had graduated from the Nashville home exactly one year ago to the day of the graduation ceremony. She had just flown into Nashville that morning from being at our California home the day before for the graduation of someone she knew. A year ago, one day after Georgianna graduated from Mercy, she had the opportunity to tell another young woman, named Laura, who was desperate and hurting about the Mercy program. Laura had lost all hope and was literally ready to end her life. Because Georgianna took the time to share her story with Laura of how God radically transformed her heart and life, Laura made the decision to apply to Mercy and was one of the first girls accepted to the California home when it opened. Georgianna had the awesome privilege to be at her graduation!

We are so proud of Georgianna for using her story and her life to touch the hearts of others.
