5 Things that Recent College Grads Want You to Know

College was a crazy season of life, and I can’t believe that it’s over now. Even though I won’t miss the research papers or exams or presentations, I’ll definitely miss the feeling of community. As a recent grad, I feel like there are so many things that I could tell you about college—not because I know it all but because I made so many mistakes during college that I don’t want you to make! I asked some of my recently graduated friends to share their thoughts as recent college grads, and these are the things that they wanted you to know.

5 Reasons Why You Need to Watch The Chosen

At first, I wasn’t super impressed with The Chosen. I thought the episodes ended really well, but the episodes seemed long and drawn out up until the ending. I didn’t really feel like continuing to watch the show. But I did. And I’m so glad that I did. Here are five reasons why you should watch it, too.

Interview with Catherine Kendrick (Alex Kendrick’s Daughter)

Today's post is very special because it contains thoughts from Catherine Kendrick (one of Alex Kendrick's daughters)! Alex Kendrick has directed and starred in several Christian films, including Flywheel, Facing the Giants, Courageous, War Room, and Overcomer.

While I appreciate the fact that Finding You didn’t have any sex scenes, I was disappointed by how unrealistic the plotline was.

None that I know.

I attended the same church for over 20 years. Even when I went off to college, I still went to my home church during breaks. But when my family moved to a different state last year, we automatically became the church visitors instead of the church regulars. So, as a church visitor who’s quite introverted, here are three things that I’d like to tell regulars at the churches I visit.

Why You Shouldn’t Wear Your Heart on Your Sleeve

We’ve all heard that we need to wear our hearts on our sleeves and let our emotions determine how we act. But if you’ve ever been reprimanded by a friend whom you bared your soul to…if you’ve ever been ignored by a boyfriend whom you spoke intimately with…if you’ve ever been rejected by a mentor whom you shared your darkest secret with…then you know that wearing your heart on our sleeve is messy. In fact, it’s unwise.

Ready or Not…Again

I already miss college. I’m not ready to graduate. But maybe I don’t have to feel ready. Maybe I don’t have to feel anything. Maybe I just have to do something. In fact, maybe we shouldn’t be so worried about feeling ready. Maybe we just need to do the next right thing.
