20 Years of Service to Mercy Ministries and Still Going Strong!!!

Over the past 20 years, Monroe Program Director, Sharon Manuel, has faithfully served and shown unconditional love to hundreds of young women at Mercy Ministries, and she’s not finished yet! Yesterday, Sharon shared a powerful and challenging message with the residents at the Nashville home about God’s plans for their time at Mercy and their futures. She reminded both the staff and residents that no one is here by accident, and we all need to surrender fully to God, seize the moment and embrace change. Here’s what some of the girls had to say about Sharon’s inspirational teaching:

This was really encouraging. God confirmed to me, through Sharon, that I am in the right place at the right time. I deserve the freedom that I am going to receive here. - Martha

Wow, the entire message was so amazing, and God totally spoke to me through it. God revealed to me that He has so much more for me in the rest of my time here than I have believed Him for. I am so excited now about the awesome work God is going to continue to do. I am going to let God work, choose life and embrace change! - Becca

It was really inspiring to hear from Sharon. It really made me excited to graduate next week and live life fully. I have laid the foundation, and I am ready to start building. - Ashley

Sharon, you have made a huge impact on Mercy Ministries through the years, and we honor you for your service, dedication and godly example. You are an incredible blessing and a huge asset to our staff. We love you!
