9 1/2 years ago, I started my journey towards my Bachelor's Degree (technically 10 1/2 because I was taking some college courses online my senior year of high-school). For 5 of those years, I wasn't in school.
In that time, I lived a lot of life though, becoming a mother to my daughter of Heaven, gaining passions and a calling.
I never wanted to just go to college because it was what everyone else was doing or what was expected for someone my age. I went back because it was truly where I felt God leading me.
Holding my Diploma in my hands late last night, I felt a huge sense of accomplishment. I'm proud that after all these years, I went back and after many hours of work, now I'm finished.
I have my B.S. in Psychology with a Specialization in Crisis Counseling and a Minor in Christian Counseling. It seems like just yesterday I was deciding to go back to school. Time has a funny way of flying on you.
When I was first starting back classes in the Fall of 2013, I remember seeing my friend's Diploma from Liberty (who actually got the same Degree) and I was thinking that it seemed like a long way off. I imagined what it would be like to hold the same Diploma with my own name on it. And now here we are, wow! I want to frame it.
I'm thankful especially for the support of my parents.
And I'd like to think my little girl would be proud of me. 🎓 ❤️ #GreatisHisFaithfulness #LibertyUniversity #LibertyAlumni
