4 Steps to Manage Your Time (And Keep Sane During the School Year)

4

Do you ever feel like you’re so busy that you’re cutting out all of the things that matter to you, like your friends, your family, and most importantly, your time with God? This happens to me a lot. I’m in college working on a Math degree, so my classes consume a lot of my time. On top of that, I’m part of several different clubs, co-curriculars, and committees. I often hit points where I feel...

What to Be When You Grow Up: Living Out Our Identity in Christ

W

As teens and early twenties, it’s easy to spend our time trying to create an identity. The most common question I got as a high schooler was, “What do you want to do with your life?” In other words, how do you want to define yourself for the next forty plus years? It’s a big question and not I wasn’t the only one trying to answer it year after year. My friends were experiencing the same...

I Thought God Led Me Here–Why Would He Lead Me Out?

I

Like many young people, I finished high school with only a vague notion of what God wanted me to do with my life. My interests in novel writing, acting, and fashion design were artsy and impractical. To further complicate matters, I struggled with a terrible chronic illness, so for a couple of years my entire focus was on getting healthy. And even then, I had to face the fact that I might never...

“Come Along and Find Out”–Worrying about the Future

&

It’s school season (if you haven’t noticed). And with it, the school season brings many things: friends, full-schedules, the thrill of learning, homework, late night study sessions, early morning study sessions, teachers, tests, projects, drama–it goes on and on. But what it brings the most is a pile of unknowns. And with the unknowns come questions… Questions about whether you’ll be...

7 Things To Remember As You Begin Your First Year of College

7

I once had this perception of college. The perception that every single college student has it all together. That while I’m still floundering, these students have their lives figured out at age eighteen. That while I contemplate and wonder if this is God’s will for my life, they somehow have the ability to know the future and every plan God has ordained for them. I would stress and feel...

How To Pick a Major For the Glory of God

H

“So what are you planning to do after you graduate?” That question. It’s everywhere. They’re just being nice, but it’s still hard. What are you supposed to say? Even if you know sort of what you’ll be doing, it’s not like you have your whole life figured out. Or, well, maybe you do. I don’t know. Wherever you are in life, I’m hoping this...

Graduating College With Zero Debt

G

Keep sending your stories to brett [at] therebelution [dot] com. Today we have an article from Kris Kandel, a young lady whose seven year battle with Lyme Disease led to some surprising blessings. We love Kris’s story for two reasons: (1) because it demonstrates how God works all things together for the good of those who love Him and (2) because it is a testimony of thinking outside the box...

Thriving at College by Alex Chediak

T

Our friend Alex Chediak, an Associate Professor at California Baptist University, has written a great book called Thriving at College. Here is the foreword we wrote: College can be a wonderful and a dangerous place. We’ve seen some of our peers flourish and find their identity at school and we’ve seen others completely lose their way—or even self-destruct. Is the college experience inherently...

So I’m Going to College

S

Going off to college is like taking a giant leap into the unknown. This video was made by Bridget Degnan — a journalism major and one of our best friends here at PHC — right before she arrived on campus this fall. We asked her if we could share this with you, because it was a much-needed reminder to us about what is really important — not just in questions about college, but in all the big...

Seek First The Lord

S

Alex and I are having an amazing (busy) time here at Patrick Henry College. Our professors are incredible. The homework is challenging, but also fascinating. Discussion amongst the students is thought-provoking. My brain is happy. Besides just the academics, the spiritual focus here invigorates me. The entire student body gathers for chapel three times a week, with Christian study groups on...
