I know...I know...I've been neglecting the blogging community. 

To be honest, I haven't been very inspired to write anything. I'm halfway done with my J-term class and I am actually really enjoying it. It's challenging. Not just academically... My professor is a biblical counselor and everyday he challenges us to think biblically. I never realized how unbiblical my thinking was. I have been a Christian for about seven years now...and I honestly had no idea so many of my thoughts did not reflect biblical thinking. I'm trying to take it all in and I'm trying to change...but it's hard! I'm fighting 23 years of conditioning here!

During the holidays I was starting to feel really down. I was just sad and ready to move away and never come back to Wake Forest. However, on January 2nd I had a change of heart.  I just gave all my troubles to God and I'm feeling a change in my attitude. I know this time in my life is crucial and I honestly couldn't be happier to be here. 

How's everyone else doing?

I'm glad to hear you are doing well, lover.

I would love to hear some of this biblical thinking you speak of. I'm sure I'm with you with my lack of Christian thinking.

I wish we could have seen each other! I have much to share. Hopefully we can hang soon. <3

glad your feeling more up to it. sometimes just the shear pressure can make you second guess, but lean on Him and He will give you the strength to get through it.
Hope the rest of the semester goes well.
We're not up to much - Kevin coming back from a Youth For Christ Conference in Colorado - our next adventure??? XO

No worries, kristel. I think seminary is challenging for anyone in the area of biblical thinking. Sometimes, i leave class asking myself questions to reaffirm my call. My cousin actually talked about that this week in his youth bible study.

God is going to use you in some awesome ways. In a lot of ways that you may not even realize, he already has.

Stay strong! Mission Trip is around the corner for ya! ;)

-pray for me, i start j-term #2 tomorrow!
