Pierce my heart: college edition!

Ecclesiastes 12:12-13 “…Of making many books there is no end, and much study is wearisome to the flesh … Fear God and keep His commandments, For this is man’s all.”

news1Welcome to the college edition of Pierce My Heart! This month we’re focusing on many aspects of college preparation, including choosing a college, becoming financially savvy at school, and the highest learning we can achieve.

We’ll also talk about staying emotionally close to family members while physically far away; we’ll include college tips that any college freshman can benefit from; and there will be an article that offers wisdom from Christian women who have been there.

We’ll discuss the different types of colleges and the benefits each type offers, including state schools, private and Christian universities, community colleges, and online schools.

Since college students will probably make many new friends, we’ll also have articles about activities to do with those friends, such as backyard sports, tie-dying shirts, campfire cooking, and campus study sessions.

If you’re going to live away from home, you’ll probably enjoy our articles about chic sleepwear, avoiding the “freshman 15,” living with roommates, and decorating a dorm or apartment.

Sunglasses are on sale in many places by now, which makes our article about choosing flattering sunglasses very fitting, and perfect for driving to college in style!

Our Heart to Heart summer series, “Instantly Changed,” will continue this month, so be sure to check that out.

Suicide is something that some of us will have to deal with some time in our lives, which is why we’ll be addressing this very sad and serious issue this month.

Other news

agly3After much thought and prayer, I’ve decided that articles will no longer appear on Sundays, which will allow for a full day of worship, family time, and rest. New articles will continue to appear every other day of the week, so if you do read Pierce My Heart on Sundays, there should be several articles from the previous week (and past months) to browse through – just make sure that you’re enhancing, not replacing, your own worship or study time with articles and books from other places.

Giveaway and thoughts

We’re going to give away a bag of beauty products this month, so check back soon for details about that.

Whether you’ve already gone to college, will be leaving this fall, or won’t head to college for a few years, or at all, we hope you can enjoy and benefit from these articles.

Remember to keep it all in perspective, though, and that in the end the only thing that matters is that we lived our lives for Christ and are His children. He doesn’t care about what type of degree we have (or don’t have) – all He cares about is that we are obedient to Him and have given our lives to Him, talking about His love with as many people as possible.

Sharing Him,
Davonne Parks
