"Wow! Powerful! You’re probably the most passionate person I ever met in my life. It’s manifested in your music, testimony, the love you have for Jesus, family, friends, etc.. Congrats for finding your calling and excelling at it."
Family Community Church
"The people in this band ARE THE REAL DEAL! They really are ministers first and great musicians second. May Jesus REALLY BLESS YOU ALL SO MUCH!!"
New Life Church Alamo
"I had the pleasure of watching you yesterday @ the PBC church in Palo Alto. I've been struggling w/ addictions for over 30 years, this last year the worst. Your song Broken Pieces and your prayer after that song truly moved me, darn near enough to tears that I had to leave shortly after so as not to embarrass myself...Thank You, you've moved what I had surely thought was a dead soul...perhaps there is hope for me now."
R&R Peninsula Bible Church
"Hey Denise... It was really good to have you! We’ve had a few people come in a lead worship that kind of left a celebrity taste in our mouth, but you all were so humble and down to earth. It was a breath of fresh air to have such real people come in and minister."
Crossroads Bible Church
"As you know, I wasn't in a good place 2 ½ years ago and had lost sight of God. I appreciated everyone’s prayers, but as you know, I can be a bit stubborn and our living church was carrying my load in my absence. This is when Our Father and Savior intervened and decided I was to be at Celebrate Recovery in Alamo on an evening Child of Mercy was visiting. I wasn't really paying attention and just going through the motions of being there. I heard Denise (Lead Singer) while she shared her story, but once they started playing their songs of praise and worship while I read her lyrics, I saw God’s light again!! Something in me changed, I can’t even put into words what I was feeling, except pure JOY and HAPPINESS! Even now after 2 ½ years I still tear up listening to some of their lyrics. God chose Child of Mercy as his messengers to me and for that I am eternally blessed! I decided to ask God to take my burden that day, 9/10/11.
New Life Church Celebrate Recovery
“"Denise, I didn't get but a few seconds with you while I purchased your CD, but truly I wanted you to know, that if only for me, it was meant to be that I was at your concert tonight. It has been such a dry season for me and many times have felt like giving up but your story and your words in your songs touched my heart and has given me a little renewed hope...for it was my hope I was losing. Thank you for your music, especially sending the message of don't give up. I will keep fighting back. May God bless you and the band as you continue to reach out to others."”
"I just have to say, you will be blessed beyond measure and your church, ministry, group will be changed when you have Denise Bridges & Child Of Mercy share and play for you. They are the face of Jesus! Youth groups will be rocked by them, churches will worship!"
“An amazing story of God’s mercy and the direct impact He had in rescuing and reshaping a former model burdened down with her past wounds/regrets and an eating disorder that threatening her health. Her amazing story is impacting the lives of many.”
