Proverbs 27:17 says, “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.” That person, for multiple award-winning gospel artist CeCe Winans, is Dr. Bridget Hilliard, Co-Founder of New Light Christian Center Church and wife of Bishop I.V. Hilliard.

In a September 4 tweet, Winans said, “When God blesses you with a true friend it makes you a better person! Im a better person because Dr Bridget Hilliard is a true friend!”

“Love you friend,” the first lady wrote back, appreciating the adoring words of the woman who also calls her a mentor.

Recently, while hosting TBN’s “Praise the Lord,” recorded live from New York, Winans welcomed the Hilliards to the show, where she revealed that she met the power couple 10 years ago while ministering at their church in Houston, TX.
