“Show me the right path, O LORD; point out the road for me to follow.” Psalm 25:4


I am so inexpressibly thankful that in May of last year, I graduated high school.

Now, I cannot express the mix of anticipation and apprehension I’ve felt as I prepared to start college this new semester.

I know…I know. Maybe it’s not that big of a deal. But it’s a whole new experience that I’m excited to have the privilege to gain. So—honestly—it’s a big deal to me. 😊

Since I graduated 9 months ago, I’ve learned you have to make what seem like huge decisions, even when you don’t feel “ready.”

Whether that’s deciding (which I did) not to start college right away or deciding it’s time to start (which I’ve done now), it requires looking past the uncertainties, the unknowns, the “what ifs,” and simply just begin—somewhere—trusting God to carry you…trusting that He’s equipped you to do your best.

It’s been a hard lesson for this stubborn child, but God is ever gracious, loving, and kind to me. He has brought me this far, and I’m excited to see where we go next.

Here’s to the beginning of college life! 🥴
