What Makes a Good Friend, Especially in College

Friendships change and it takes effort to keep in touch, even more so when you’re in college. Erin knows all about it.

College is a time of great change, and I have learned that even friendship is a part of that. You gain new friends, keep some old, and sometimes you move in different directions. Most of the time those friendships start to look very different as they readjust to fit busy schedules and the miles in between.

Being on a team is hard work but always worth it in the end.

Finding Peace and Guidance in Life

"I realized I’ve been trying to live my life for God, but I’ve been trying to do it on my own."

IMG_6426  In my recent quiet time with God, I have been learning a lot about what’s important. Let me rephrase that: what should be important. I’ve read many verses over the past month that talk about God’s promises and what He will give to us if we honor Him. For example…

“Since we have these promises, let us purify ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit, perfecting holiness out of…
