A Greater plan has taken Nicole C. Mullen down many interesting roads and encompassed a variety of roles. She’s a mother, singer, songwriter, speaker, and a successful business woman as well as a mentor. “I really feel like God set his love upon me at an early age and it was something that I could not have earned. I didn’t deserve it. I was not talented enough to merit His gaze, but He gave it to me. By this I am reminded of his love towards all of us. Like the Bible says, ‘while we were yet sinners, He died for us.’ I love and worship Him because He loved me ﬁrst.”
