Promo Tuesday with College Church Connection

 Promo Tuesdays is where we highlight our brothers and sisters who are moving through ministry and small business while spreading the gospel as the Lord leads. Please support them by checking out their website and social media.

In March of 2016, my husband was hired to produce the awesome animation you see above. Before that, I had never heard of College Church Connection. I never really knew such organizations existed. When you look at the stats, it really is disturbing to see how many college freshmen who grew up in Christian households end up wavering in their faith pretty quickly because they don’t have a community at school that looks highly on their lifestyle. How many of you felt very pressured to “live it up” and forget everything you knew growing up once you set your foot on a college campus? It’s all too familiar and I’m glad there’s a growing solution to that problem. To learn more about what they’re up to, you can keep up with them here.

How My Faith Grew Between High School and College

Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you. (James 4:8)

Some of you reading this are in junior high or high school, while others are embarking on the journey of college. Whatever your situation may be, God is going to grow your faith and exceed your wildest dreams as you draw close to Him on and off campus. As you desire to be in His will, He is able to get closer to you and bless you while affecting those around you for the better because of your obedience.

There is a maturity that comes from time with God and from going through various life stages. Know that your level of faith does not compare to anyone else’s, because you are the only you there is, but it should be consistently evolving. I’ve felt the changes going from high school to college to moving out to being married to becoming a mother, etc. Believe me, it never stops, and that is one of the most exciting things about God’s work in you.

I want to share some of the differences between having faith in high school and faith in college, and hopefully it will encourage you where you are and give you something to look forward to. Continue reading “How My Faith Grew Between High School and College”

How I Made Meaningful Friendships on the First Day of School

This article was originally written in September of 2015 for Project Inspired, a website that encourages Christian teenage girls all over the world. Thank you for reading!

Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. (Matthew 7:7)

For some of you, school is back in session. Have you asked the Lord for His help in making new friends? If you’re anything like me, you’re a ball of nerves when school starts. Making friends on the first day sometimes seemed impossible for me, and it took a while to get used to introducing myself and getting to know other teens. Honestly, my favorite part of the summer ending was shopping and overpacking my backpack with enough school supplies to last the entire year (I still over prepare). Some of my least favorite things were wondering if I’d get lost trying to find my class and who I would sit next to during lunch.

Being a Christian in a Non-Christian World: Campus Edition

This article was originally written in August of 2015 for Project Inspired, a website that encourages Christian teenage girls all over the world. Thank you for reading!

Let no one look down on your youthfulness, but rather in speech, conduct, love, faith and purity, show yourself an example of those who believe. (1 Timothy 4:12)

You may be roaming a school campus in a few short months. This means high school or–for some of you–college is starting up again. I survived both with very few scars and I can tell you the balancing act is not easy, but it’s highly possible. My story isn’t a perfect one, but hopefully I can help to encourage you if you’re teetering on the edge or finding yourself isolated because of your beliefs.

If you’re anything like me and you’ve grown up in a Christian household, your parents were pretty strict. Not that I was always trying to get away with doing something I wasn’t supposed to, but it was a lot easier—and encouraged by my peers—if I was at school versus at home. When most students were hooking up, trying to coast through their classes and paying more attention to their outfits than their homework assignments, staying on course was one of the most difficult things for me to do. So how do we motivate ourselves to pack our values right next to our textbooks without fear of being ostracized? Continue reading “Being a Christian in a Non-Christian World: Campus Edition”
