I walked across the stage at my college graduation two weeks ago! What the heck!? The main expression I feel when thinking about this is how did time go so fast!? However, another question also haunts me: “What am I doing and where am I going now?” I have experienced joy, fear, anxiety, and many other emotions that past few weeks because I am excited for the future, but also scared out of my mind.

I’m ALIVE!!! It has been TWO months since I last posted a blog. I got really overwhelmed with everything in my life and lost some of my passion for blogging, but I am excited to get back to doing something I enjoy! Because the past months have been so busy, I figured now would be the perfect time to give you ideas on how to make time for Jesus in college (or, in life in general).

I didn’t grow up in church. The only time I went to church as a young kid was VBS for a week every summer. In fifth grade, I had a friend who invited me to go to church with her and after a couple years, we stopped being friends and I honestly learned nothing. I went for social reasons. A few years later my boyfriend, at the time, asked me to go to church with him. After a year going with him and breaking up and still going to church, I realized something. I realized I was a sinner who needed a savior. In November of 2012, I accepted Christ as my savior and the past few years have been nothing but a learning experience. I have learned a few things about myself and the world from being the only one in my immediate family that attends church and want to share it with you whether you have been in church your whole life, or in a situation similar to mine.

This is my second Faithbox I have received and unfortunately it will be my last. I have nothing wrong with the company and I honestly loved the idea, but at the moment I am not able to continue to purchase it every month due to personal reasons. If you do not know what Faithbox is, it is a Christian monthly subscription box that sends products from companies that are either Christian companies, or companies that give back with their products. Faithbox also includes a daily devotion inside that box that focuses on the theme for that month. The amazing thing about Faithbox is that with each box purchased, they are able to provide three meals to someone in need.

If you follow my blog or have seen any of my other posts, you most likely know that I subscribe to the monthly beauty box called “Ipsy.” I have enjoyed receiving Ipsy so much the past few months and decided I wanted to find another box – not relating to beauty – that I wanted to subscribe to. After research, I decided to try “Faithbox.” Faithbox is a monthly Christian subscription box that costs $20 + $5 for shipping. Each box consists of nonprofit organization’s products that give back in some way. I immediately fell in love with this box when I read that with each box, the company provides three meals to hungry children! How awesome is it that you can receive some really cool and unique products while also feeding kids for only $20 a month!?

The past few weeks have been pretty difficult and I have been experiencing negative feelings. School started back a few weeks ago and this semester I am taking 15 hours alongside working 40 hours each week. On top of that, I have been dealing with some personal issues and feelings of disappointment in myself and the way I have been handling things. After dealing with this mess (at least trying to), I realized that Jesus is not in the center. I constantly am busy dealing with work, school, and my personal life, but I keep putting my relationship with God on the back burner. Why do I do this? Do I think that everything else is more important to me than my relationship with God? My relationship with God is not where I want it to be and I am so frustrated with myself because I get caught up in the pointless worries of this world. Why do I get frustrated and upset, but do nothing to change it?

In the summer of 2014, I had the amazing opportunity to travel across the world to Kenya, Africa for two and a half weeks. I never imagined what I would see, experience, and learn during those long two weeks and began learning and being tested from the moment we got on the bus to travel to Dallas and continued even months after I returned.
