Nashville residents and staff had an incredible week of teaching and encouragement with several very special guests. Last Wednesday, it was a privilege to have Dr. Neil Anderson, well-known speaker and author of “The Bondage Breaker,” “Victory Over the Darkness,” and many other books, take time away from his busy counseling and speaking schedule to offer his incredible wisdom insight and wisdom to our girls and staff.
Dr. Anderson shared with the residents and staff about the power of forgiveness. Having had to forgive for some tragic events in his own life, Dr. Anderson explained that even after tragedy, there is life and hope and God doesn’t have to fix our past - He frees us from it. He shared that forgiveness is more about finding freedom for ourselves than it is about the other person. Check out this video clip from our awesome and powerful time with Dr. Neil Anderson:

Then on Thursday, residents were excited to hear from Karen Philpott, former Marketing Director for Mercy Ministries and author and speaker, Leighann McCoy, who pastors at Thompson Station Church alongside her husband Tom McCoy. Both of these ladies have a huge heart for Mercy Ministries and we are excited to continue building a relationship with this awesome church.
Karen Philpott had an impactful time with residents when she shared a powerful message from her heart on the power of prayer. Leighann continued this intimate discussion by passionately illustrating the undeniable worth each person has as a child of God. Residents and staff were impacted in a powerful way!
Here is what a few of the girls had to say about these very special visitors:
Ashleigh said, “I always thought that I had to get myself right before I could forgive people, but it’s the other way around. I love when Dr. Anderson said, ‘You forgive in order to heal,’ because I can begin to let go of bitterness and let God do the judging.”
Michelle said, “God is going to keep telling me the same thing until I believe it. I loved Leighann’s message about how God gives me power to act in His image and if I seek Him I will find Him.
Caitlin said, “One of the biggest things I am working on is staying in consistent prayer continually throughout my day so that I can learn and not feel helpless or insecure. I plan to journal more so I can listen for what God is saying to me.”
Check out these video clips of our time with Dr. Anderson, Karen and Leighann.
Special thanks to Dr. Neil Anderson, Karen Philpott, and Leighann McCoy. We are so honored and grateful to have these very incredible people take the time to pour into our girls and staff.

Nicole graduated from Mercy Ministries in 2006. 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!
