Favorite campus hangout: Chapel for worship nights, Library

Best advice I have ever received: “Keep on digging”

Favorite Bible verse: John 13:17   Jeremiah 29:11

The best things come from the bottom so if you find yourself there, remember there’s always room at the top. God leaves the gifts at the bottom of the staircase and it’s up to you to walk up them.

Trust, that he who began a good work in you, will finish it. He does all things for our good.
