This has never been more evident as Nicole mentors youngsters in her Baby Girls Club, “Mentorship is our way of investing in young people with the hope of Christ and practical experiences,” says Mullen. “We've also had the opportunity to help others around the world set up similar clubs. We've started a Baby Girls and Champions club in the country of Belize, and a like model in Zambia; with hopes of further expansion. I believe we have a great opportunity to affect the future of our nation and the future of our world.

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.”
