What Is This Conference About?

Nichole Nordeman

In Concert Saturday Morning
Nichole Nordeman
Nichole Nordeman is a top Christian artist with four No.1 and seven Top 5 singles under her belt — along with nine Dove Awards including being named Female Vocalist of the Year twice.

Nichole stepped out of the limelight to work on saving her marriage and raising her babies. Her marriage didn’t last, but she says she’s still grateful she made that decision because she wouldn’t have forgiven herself if she didn’t give it her full attention. She also didn’t have to miss a minute of her children’s all-important early development, and was still able to feed her creative urges by writing for other artists.

Her post-divorce journey has taken her from a place of isolation and loss to acceptance and strength. She writes, “As hard as it was to start over, a lot of beauty came from those ashes.”

The title of Nichole’s new album, Every Mile Mattered, hints at its overall theme: reflections on her past and how far she’s traveled, despite traipsing over some very rocky roads. In the same-named song, she sings unapologetically. “It’s history, you can’t rewrite it/You’re not meant to be trapped inside it/Every tear brought you here, every sorrow gathered/Every mile mattered.”

But another song, “Sound of Surviving,” bears an equally appropriate title. In that one, she proclaims, “This is my farewell to fear/This is my whole heart deciding/I’m still here/And I’m not done fighting/This is the sound of surviving.”

Both phrases suggest the struggle for reaffirmation and renewal — and the triumph of empowerment — that lies at the heart of this new release, Nordeman’s first full album following a 10-year hiatus during which she personally walked every one of those miles.

Nichole’s learned, “You can’t outrun God’s love; you can’t escape God’s presence. He’s with us wherever we are.”
