Britt Nicole Notable Quotes:
- - "In the past, I have often let the fear of people and their opinions stop me from being who I am. At the core though, I know who I am and who God has called me to be. In letting go of my past, I was able to move forward, and instead of focusing on all my mistakes and failures, I started focusing on those around me. That’s ultimately why I’m here, to worship God and to reach those who need to know Him."
- - "I meet a lot of young people who have been in church their whole life and know about God but don’t really know Him as their Father and their friend. They see God as so far away and think 'Does he really understand me and does he really know what I’m going through?' My heart is to go into those dry, dry places that need water and fresh fire."
- - "I want to write honest songs that connect with people regardless. I want to put my heart on paper." (from an interview with CCM Magazine)
