With Christians returning to school this is some helpful counsel for yourself, or to share with a Christian student you know. Kevin writes: “Some of the following tips may not be helpful to you; some may change your life. That is the fun of the college years—things happen so quickly, you often don’t realize how decisions you make during college will steer the rest of your life. I pray the following tips will keep you from wasting your college years.” You can read the rest HERE.
