People think that going to college is about getting an education.  Well, that's part of it, but it's also about discovering who you are in Christ...if it's done the right way. However, you don't have to wait until you're paying thousands of dollars a semester to discover who you are in Christ.  You can do it high school...or even middle school.  What I hope to do with this blog is guide students how to discover their God-given passions, develop their purpose and determine their path--particularly with regard to higher education.  And I want to teach parents how they can help their kids in this process without being completely irritating! (Can I hear a great, big HALLELUJAH?!!)  When you look at the college search process in this way--as a means of discovering who you are in Christ--you can see why you want to start the college application and search process early in high school.  Once you've accepted Christ as Savior, you are anointed for a great adventure.  God has equipped you for "what you want to be when you grow up."  But it's a path that has to be walked.  There are many practical things you can do to make the path easier, and I'll be offering those tips as we go along. So, I hope you'll join me and subscribe to this post. Link to it on facebook.  Get it via google reader (a little less cumbersome for some folks). Read, learn, enjoy and be blessed.
