“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him and he will direct your paths.” (Proverbs 3:5-6)
Whether you are a long time believer or just starting your personal relationship with Christ, the question of “What is God’s will?” certainly hits close to home. If you have ever prayed over a loved one who is dying or stood next to a friend who has lost everything, this question strikes even harder. Having experienced the loss of a parent, I have wrestled with it over and over again myself. My whole heart is hoping that you will keep wrestling with it in your own life and in that process draw closer to the God of truth to find the answers you need.

There are few things more enjoyable than a good Reese’s cup. The chocolate and peanut butter just make sense. Many things in our world just seem to fit together and make sense.
This seems to be, in a larger sense, the drive of mankind. How do I make sense out of this world? God planned for our world to make sense out of relationships. These relationships are both vertical (with God and man) and horizontal (with each other). This brings the richness of life that makes sense of the world. The simple words of Jesus, summing up all the commands: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” (Matthew 22:37-39)

As a fourth year student in the Colangelo College of Business, I am about to graduate with a Bachelor of Science and roughly three years of work experience. While I would like to say that I have the practical knowledge to at once be an expert in my field, this would be a gross overestimation. However, I am prepared to start my career using the crucial, fundamental knowledge and theory I have gained in subjects such as management, human resources, accounting, economics, finance, marketing, public relations and the list goes on. Perhaps the most important skill I have learned in my studies is how to manage and effectively use one of man’s most precious resources: time.
Do you need a BSN to become a nurse? The simple answer is technically, no, you don’t need a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) to become a nurse. However, pursuing a BSN offers many advantages for individuals who want to advance their nursing career, become a leader in the field or improve their employment opportunities. The following are several reasons why you should consider earning a BSN:

Moving into my dorm was extremely exciting! This year, I am in an on-campus apartment, which means I have a room all to myself! Never in my life have I had my own room – my sister and I have always shared a room and last year I had a roommate. It’s so nice to have my own space! Plus, one of the other nice things about having an on-campus apartment is there is a full kitchen. I can cook my own food and learn new recipes instead of always buying food out!

One of our co-founders from our scrappy startup Storage Together told us of a networking and pitching even in Wuhan, China – any opportunity to pitch in front of Chinese investors. As a team, we focused on our idea and saw other share economies taking on the world.
