My time at New Day

My name is Nicole, I am from Australia and I have been at New Day for about 1 month. Tomorrow is my last day here. I have had the most amazing experience, and have learned some valuable life lessons. The staff made it very easy for me and the other interns to feel comfortable and right at home from the moment we arrived. The children here are so special. I will never forget them. From the way Chad's whole face lights up when he smiles, to Ethan's random conversations he tries to have with you. How quickly Samuel scoots across the floor to how chilled out and happy Joshua is to just sit, leaning against you. From Lindsay's ENOURMOUS chubby cheeks, to Tristan's sweet dimples. Judah's strength and lovingness to Victoria's funny jokes. Cora's beautiful curls to the funny faces Vincent likes to pull. They are all special, all complete individuals, and I pray that they all live happy and full lives with loving and caring families. Thank you New Day.


  1. Nicole, thank you for being a part of these kid's life. They are precious in His sight, and so is your service to them. :0)

  2. Hi Nicole! Thank you for introducing yourself and for your time spent with the children at New Day. Isn't it funny how you go to help enrich their lives, and you in turn are the one who walks away more enriched!?!

    We are traveling to bring home our Khloe w/in a couple of months, and our oldest Breanna (almost 15) will be with us and hopes to serve at New Day within a couple of years, so she is so excited to meet the children. I will have her read your post here, as I know she loves reading about others who have served. Praying you have safe and happy travels back home. Thanks again for your time for these kids and your selfless heart to give of yourself!

    Blessings and Hugs,
    ~ Tanya

  3. What an experience! I pray your time and those you served will shape and mold your days ahead Nicole. Thanks for sharing this post with us!
