“Savor the sweetness of this day.”
These were the words of President Teague to start off our day of graduation. And what a sweet day it was! It was so satisfying to walk across the stage and receive a degree that I’ve worked so hard for over the last several years.
As I think back and reflect on this day, there were several lessons I pulled out of my time in college.
For years, the question wasn’t “when” I would graduate, but “if” I would graduate, at all. My college career looks a little different than most students. After high school, I attended Messiah College to study Health & Exercise Science. After a year, I transferred to Millersville University to study Business Administration. Not even a year later, I traveled overseas to Central and Eastern Europe, to lead English & Sports Camps, as a vehicle to share the gospel with students. God had placed this passion for sharing the gospel and studying the Bible in my heart. So, when I came back to Lancaster, Pennsylvania, I decided to attend the best Bible college I believed was out there… Moody Bible Institute. I attended there for a semester, before transferring to Lancaster Bible College. I’ve lived in Lancaster for most of my life and it’s what I know as home.
