Paving the Way from Pain to Hope for Young Moms: Nicole Gillon’s Story

by Jennifer Gerelds on Aug 11, 2022

Nicole Gillon was reeling from heartache. Neither time nor talking with others could take away the pain, either. As a lifelong believer with a passion for mentoring young women, she just couldn’t make sense of what had happened with her first cousin, 12 years her junior.

Of course, she knew that her cousin had been born into a highly dysfunctional situation, so much so that Nicole’s mom was given custody of her and her brother, ages 10 and 6 at the time. Taking them in as her own, her mom labored to repair and restore the brokenness they incurred from their early years. Nicole also assumed a mentoring role as a “big sister” who reached out to her the best she could though she was off in college while her mom and cousins lived in Illinois. “We always had a special kind of bond,” Nicole reflected. From afar, she watched her cousin grow into a teenager who couldn’t seem to break from a cycle of harmful decisions. First, she landed in juvenile detention. Ultimately, she became a young, single mother of two children of her own, Destiney and Willow, and her struggle continued.

The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me,    because the Lord has anointed me…to comfort all who mourn,   and provide for those who grieve in Zion—to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness,    a planting of the Lord. —Isaiah 61:1,3

Persistent in her passion for mentoring, Nicole joined Young Life, a ministry that helps at-risk moms. “I had hoped it would help me help my cousin and others like her,” she asserted. But in January of 2021, her phone rang—and the news rocked her world.

In a fit of inexplicable rage, her cousin had murdered Willow, her youngest 7-year-old daughter, right in front of Destiney, the older sister. It was horrific and tragic. And the fallout left Nicole at a total loss for how to process the pain. She agonized for months, trying to make any sense of it. It seemed so pointless and she was utterly powerless to resolve it. Empty-handed and brokenhearted, like Jacob, she wrestled with God until breakthrough and blessing came. “Jesus,” she cried, “How do I survive this? What am I supposed to do with this unbearable burden?”

Slowly, in the sadness and solitude, Nicole began to sense God’s Spirit whisper, “Find a purpose for the pain.” The more she spent time at Jesus’ feet receiving comfort from His presence, His plan for her became clearer. “It’s like God gave me a vision,” Nicole recounts. “He showed me that I can either sit in the trauma and pain or I can do something so other families don’t have to go through this.”

Nicole chose to rise from the ashes and follow God’s lead. His instruction to “be intentional and obedient” drove her to investigate what was already out there in her area to help young moms. In August of 2021, a Client Advocate position opened up at Women’s Hope Medical Clinic, so she applied and soon began work as a volunteer. She hoped to get plugged into the programs the clinic already offered, but she was puzzled by the Spirit steering her in another direction. “God kept telling me that if I don’t find the kind of support network I want for young moms here, I need to create it,” she asserted. Sure enough, despite the good programs the Clinic offered, none provided the kind of mentorship between seasoned, Christian moms and the struggling young moms she had envisioned.


living4more“Then the Lord gave me a name and even a logo for what He was about to do,” she smiled. Living 4 More was born and another first cousin helped her design the logo: A beautiful willow tree in honor of the child who was murdered and D+W for both sisters, inscribed in it. “I initially approached the pregnancy center with the idea of hosting the group there, but after more prayer, I felt led to take it to a community center in Opelika,” Nicole explained. The center welcomed the idea and opened its doors to Living 4 More, allowing her ample opportunities to advertise her ministry to the community at large.

nicole-gillon“The Holy Spirit drives everything that I do,” she emphasizes. “My goal with the girls now is simply to be there for them. As a young mom and a young person, you just want to know that someone is out there who cares, who’s there for you to give advice and help—especially as a mom. Sometimes people just need a perspective or word of encouragement from outside their family,” she explains. Living 4 More serves moms who are age 25 or younger. They meet monthly, provide childcare, and enjoy a meal together while talking through their struggles and equipping them with the tools they need to succeed as people and parents. Each young mom is paired with a “Village Mom”—an older mother who is willing to pour into them in a godly and loving way. “So far I’ve reached three young moms, and I’m working to get the word out to reach more,” Nicole reports. “We’ve watched God lead us all through this adventure one step at a time, and our eyes are staying fixed on Him. I know He’ll connect us with the moms who need help. We just have to stay willing to follow whatever He says.”

Nicole encourages others wanting to get involved in life ministry to just jump in wherever the Lord is leading. “Trusting and obeying are the keys to growing faith,” Nicole challenges. “There are so many different ways you can be a part of the solution. Sign up to foster or adopt children. Get active in your local community center where there are at-risk kids.” To Nicole, the opportunities seem endless. “But whatever it is, just start! You don’t even have to know the end destination. Just start walking in the direction God is pointing, and watch Him pave the way.”



Is the Untested and Dangerous Monkeypox Vaccine About to get an EUA to Avoid Legal Liability for Deaths and Injuries?


The FDA did in fact issue an EUA on the Jynneos monkeypox vaccine on August 9th:

With a looming crisis of widespread contagion, the FDA announced on August 9 that rather than the prescribed two-shot dosage, the agency has issued an emergency use authorization (EUA) for the JYNNEOS vaccine to allow healthcare providers to use the vaccine by intradermal injection for individuals 18 years of age and older who are determined to be at high risk for monkeypox infection.

We saw throughout the COVID Plandemic that the pharmaceutical industry took advantage of “Public Health Emergency” designations to get the FDA to issue EUAs (emergency use authorization) to get new, untested vaccines into the market as soon as possible without proper testing, and more importantly for the pharmaceutical companies, no legal liabilities.

With the W.H.O. and the U.S. Government now declaring monkeypox to be a “Public Health Emergency,” could the same thing happen with new vaccines and drugs for monkeypox?

The problem in issuing the existing smallpox/monkeypox vaccine an EUA, is that it was already approved by the FDA, even though it has not been tested in the public much beyond the initial trials conducted by the drug company.

According to Dr. Meryl Nass, that may not stop them from figuring out a way to get the FDA to issue them an EUA to avoid legal liability:

Although I don’t have the full story yet, I am warning you that the monkeypox vaccine Jynneos is a huge scam, in every way, including the supposed shortage.  I will disclose more about that soon.

But since it is actually licensed, the monkeypox vaccine (like other licensed drugs and vaccines) has liability attached to it.  You can currently sue government program planners, the doctor who recommended it, the manufacturer, etc. if anything goes wrong.

To forestall that, some crook came up with the idea of splitting the doses, under the guise of a fake shortage, which provides an excuse to make the lower dose an EUA–in other words, turning it into a product for which you cannot sue anyone if something goes wrong.  Pretty clever, eh?

Licensed products are not supposed to receive EUAs unless they are used for something different than what they were licensed for.  Splitting the dose does not change the fact it is licensed for monkeypox and being used for monkeypox.

Here is another possible but diabolical reason to split (dilute) the dose:  it potentially allows the federal government access to the vials–so the vials won’t go straight from the manufacturer to the wholesaler but instead go somewhere else to be diluted.  And what is in the diluent?

From the NY Times:

…Federal officials have ordered nearly seven million doses of Jynneos, but the shots will not arrive for months. So far, the Biden administration has shipped about 600,000 doses to states. It said last week that 800,000 additional doses were being allocated to states, but the distribution could take weeks.

Faced with shortages, some cities, including Washington and New York, are restricting second doses to stretch their supplies. Officials at the Food and Drug Administration and the C.D.C. have disagreed with that strategy, noting that Jynneos is approved as a vaccine to be given in two doses spaced 28 days apart.

But as federal health officials declared a public health emergency on Thursday, Dr. Robert Califf, the commissioner of the F.D.A., said the agency was now considering authorizing shots that contain just one-fifth of the regular dose, delivered between layers of the skin instead of under it.

The F.D.A. would need to grant Jynneos an emergency use authorization in order for it to be administered this way.

The dose-sparing approach has been used when supplies of other vaccines are scarce. But giving intradermal shots requires more skill than is needed for more traditional immunizations.

One shot is probably enough to forestall severe symptoms in most people, and the dose-sparing strategy may work just as well. But it’s unclear whether a scaled-back regimen is enough to prevent infection, and if so, how long that immunity may last, federal health officials said…

Here is some more information about the deadly monkeypox vaccine from Dr. Meryl Nass, who earlier this year had her medical license suspended in Maine for daring to tell the truth about the deadly COVID-19 vaccines, that you will not likely find elsewhere.

Unpleasant truths about the Moneypox vaccine

Very high rates of cardiac effects and HIV worsening compound the problem that there are no efficacy data from humans. Does it even work?

by Meryl Nass

At the bottom of this article I have posted excerpts from the label for Jynneos and an FDA review document.  In a nutshell:

1) there is no evidence to support using this vaccine in pregnancy, lactation or children.  There is no information on male (as well as female) fertility effects or carcinogenicity.

2) About 2% of recipients had a serious adverse event

3) According to the label, between 1.3% and 2.1% of recipients had a cardiac event of special interest, compared to 0.2% of placebo subjects.  According to the FDA review document, not mentioned in the label, there were 10% and 18% of subjects with troponin elevations in two sub-studies. This suggests that somewhere between 1 in 90 and 1 in 6 people will have a troponin elevation or EKG abnormality, indicating some degree of cardiac damage due to the shot.

4) The monkeypox virus against which the vaccine was tested is probably quite different from the monkeypox virus currently circulating.

5) Now, if you want a scarier picture of what the vaccine does to recipients, it is found in the FDA review of the documents and studies that led to Jynneos’ 2019 license, but was not included in the label.

For example on page 191 of the FDA review:  8% of those subjects who were HIV positive could not get their second Jynneos dose due to side effects from the first. 7% of the HIV positive subjects had worsening of HIV parameters.  It is likely that Jynneos causes immune suppression.

Thirty-eight SAES [serious adverse events] were reported in HIV-infected subjects (17 vaccinia-naïve, 6 vaccinia-experienced) and none in HIV-uninfected controls. Most of these fell under the Infectious or Respiratory SOCs. One of these SAEs, pneumonia which occurred 2 days after the 2nd dose of MVA-BN in a 39-year-old HIV-infected, vaccinia-naïve woman, was considered possibly related to MVA-BN. [And the rest weren’t, even though you withdrew the subjects from further doses?–Nass]  Of note, 1.0% of HIV infected subjects (n=6) were withdrawn from the study due to AE and 7% (n=35) of HIV infected subjects did not receive a second dose of MVA-BN due to worsening of HIV parameters (drop in CD4 count or rise in HIV viral load) after the first dose.

Doorless Carp wrote a thesis on all the issues with the Jynneos vaccine on June 3 while I only have the Cliff’s Notes here, scattered through several posts. [I give a more comprehensive presentation today, Aug 9 to Medical Doctors for COVID Ethics.]

Without Vocations, There Will Be No Eucharistic Revival

COMMENTARY: Without the priest, there is no Eucharist, and without the Eucharist, there is no Church.

The center of the Eucharistic revival, the three-year initiative of the Church in the United States, is obviously and appropriately the Eucharistic Jesus — the root, center, source and summit of the Christian life.

But as the Church celebrates on Aug. 4 the patron saint of parish priests, St. John Mary Vianney, it is a fitting time to focus on the indispensable importance of the priest in the Eucharistic life of the Church. Without the priest, there is no Eucharist, and without the Eucharist, there is no Church.

For the Eucharistic revival to spur the renewal of the Church, there is a need to strengthen the Eucharistic dimension of the priests we have and to pray to the Harvest Master for many more priestly laborers in his vineyard.

Most Catholics are aware that there is a crisis in priestly vocations, with painful consequences in the life of believers. Twenty percent of U.S. dioceses did not have a priestly ordination last year. Many dioceses are bracing for the retirement and death of priests ordained in the 1970s, who presently represent 50% of their clergy. In the United States, there are 3,500 parishes without a resident priest, and lack of sufficient clergy is causing many Churches to have to close.

There are attempts at quick fixes in various places, like importing priests from religious orders or vocation-rich dioceses in Mexico, Colombia, Nigeria, Kenya, Uganda, India or Poland. In some circles, rather than look to such temporary solutions, people are trying to exploit the dearth in order to push for the ordination of married men or even to propose the dogmatically impossible solution of the ordination of women.

But many places are not yet committed in a practical way commensurate with the importance and urgency of the need for new priestly vocations. It’s not enough for a diocese to appoint a vocations director and then to expect him to be able to remedy the crisis single-handedly or with an assistant or small team.

The reality is that many parishes — just like many Catholic schools and high schools — have not produced a single seminarian in decades and a visit from a vocations director will almost never be sufficient to change what seems to be, sadly, vocationally infertile soil.

Fewer than 20% percent of Catholic parishes nationwide have anything in the parish intentionally working to stimulate and normalize vocational awareness and response. Many parishes don’t do anything even during the occasions when the Church explicitly focuses on vocations, like the World Day of Prayer for Vocations (May 8), the World Day of Prayer for the Sanctification of Priests (June 24), Priesthood Sunday (Sept. 25) or National Vocations Awareness Week (Nov. 6-12). Since 80% of seminarians come from the 20% of parishes with a vocation ministry or committee, there’s a reason why so many parishes seem to be sterile.

Nicaraguan Bishop’s future remains uncertain as Church holds day of prayer

Violence against Bishops and clergy by armed groups aligned with the Nicaraguan government, continues to affect the local Catholic Church, as Bishop Rolando Alvarez of Matagalpa is kept under house arrest.

By Sophie Peeters

The Church in Nicaragua is marking 11 August this year with a day of prayer and Eucharistic Adoration in parishes across the Latin American nation.

It comes as part of the National Marian Congress taking place on 7-15 August, as the local Church faces ongoing difficulties with the closure of 6 Catholic radio stations and government pressure on the Bishop of Matagalpa.

Outspoken Bishop

The fate of Bishop Rolando Alvarez, who has been targeted by the regime of President Daniel Ortega in Nicaragua, continues to remain uncertain.

The outspoken bishop was placed under house arrest after protesting the government’s closing of Catholic radio stations in the country.

In a picture that went viral around the world, Bishop Alvarez was seen on his knees begging for mercy while a group of armed police officers surround him.

The incident occurred on 4 August when Bishop Alvarez, along with six priest and six lay Catholics, was banned from celebrating Mass and was locked inside his parish house.

Bishop Alvarez is accused by the authorities of allegedly using media and social networks to carry out acts of violence against the population and to destabilize the country.

Reaction to the arrest

Many human rights and Church-affiliated groups have condemned the arrest, while Bishops and other groups have expressed their closeness to Bishop Alvarez who is locked away in his home.

The Latin American Episcopal Council (CELAM) has expressed its solidarity and closeness to the Church of Nicaragua, noting that the Church “proclaims the Gospel of peace” and, in this light, is always open to collaboration with national and international authorities.

Conflict between Church and state

The Catholic Church continues to be the target of numerous attacks and attempts to silence Church leaders, including the harassment of Bishops and priests.

Since Bishop Alvarez’s arrest on 4 August, the Nicaraguan government pursues its silencing of the Catholic voice in the country by closing yet another Catholic Radio station and one-hundred more NGOs.

The Nicaraguan government has been accused of seeking to silence Church representatives, having churches surrounded, and intimating clergy members and the faithful.


All are welcome aboard the crazy train — but be warned, the world as you know it, is about to be turned upside down.
