MEET NICOLE FROM HAVEN OF HOPE
Nichole is currently staying at the Haven is our House Manager. She makes sure everyone is helping to keep the Haven safe and clean, checks everyone in for the night, and answers our door and phone. Nicole enjoys speaking with neighbors, donors, and anyone she meets that wants to hear about how Jesus changed her life. She leads our women in daily bible devotion and prayer. Nicole listens and encourages our women and gives glory to God in almost every conversation. She adds smiles to our days. Nichole is living proof that when we are willing, God changes us from the inside out. Her life verse is: "For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.\" John 3:16 (NIV)\n\nChildhood for Nichole was full of happy memories, traditions, family trips, camping, big spaces to play outside and learn about animals and farming. In the 6th grade, her happy world changed. Nichole's parents divorced, she moved out with her mom and sisters to a new town and school. They were separated from her dad and living full time with an alcoholic mother. Nichole got into minimal trouble growing up, hanging out with the wrong crowd, partying, and watching her sisters go down worse paths. Despite some experimenting with drugs and alcohol, Nichole never became addicted. She finished high school and earned a certificate in college to be a CNA. She worked as a CNA and supported her daughter as a single mother for 17 years. \n\nNichole did not expect to be homeless. While raising her daughter, Nichole had continued living with her alcoholic, angry and abusive mother. The environment became too toxic. Her teenage daughter threatened to leave on her own so they both left quickly without a plan, staying with friends (couch surfing)S until they heard of the Haven of Hope. She does not resent this season of her life. She appreciates her experience and feels she has more compassion for those in need. Nichole shares confidently that difficult seasons require strength and faith in God. \n\nNichole had never really lived alone without the company of family and friends. Choosing to stay at the Haven of Hope with strangers was something new. At first, she barely spoke and chose not to participate in group discussions. As time went on, staying in a home with other women facing similar situations became a welcoming and safe place for her. Nichole learned more about the bible and the character of God through attending church and building healthy relationships with people that love Jesus. She became baptized and started trusting God with the path for her life. Nichole describes her salvation experience as physical and emotional healing. This came while hearing a message in church \"Breaking the Chains\". She felt and heard God speak to her about healing her from anxiety, forgiving all her sins, and restoring her to be a joyful light to others. She believed in God's words to her with confidence. People from her past now comment about her transformation and notice a major change in her attitude. It is exciting to witness the growth of someone who came to the Haven as a woman in crisis and is now a woman in search of God's best for her life.
