Hey, you can do this.
I'm not counting, but Christmas is just twenty days away! To get in the Christmas spirit, I would suggest going out and immersing yourself in Christmas, and an easy way to do that is it visit spots with incredible Christmas light displays. This year, we've assembled the top five places within three hours of campus to go and get in the Christmas spirit.
would be lying if I said that I miss high school, but I'd also be lying if I said that I didn't miss some of my teachers. I went to a small(ish) school, so after a while, I knew the names of most of the teachers and eventually, they knew my name too. It would have been easy for me to go through my time at Gulf Shores High School without getting to know any of the teachers or staff members, but thankfully, that didn't happen. Getting to know my teachers, and letting them get to know me, is the best decision I made in high school. Let me tell you why.
I have found that it becomes easier and easier to forget how thankful we are for the things and people in our daily lives. Of course we're thankful for our friends and family, but we don't always say that actively. The same goes for Mississippi College. I spend the majority of the year here, and I'm definitely caught in the day to day grind of classes, work, and social events. But at the Choctawk, we want to take the time to say thank you to Mississippi College. I think I speak for all of us when I say that MC has changed our lives for the better.
Once upon a time, I came to college as an overly confident, lazy, and mediocre student who had never had to try too hard in school. I was quickly overwhelmed by college academics, unsure of how to navigate the heavy course load and high expectations. I tried harder in school than I ever had, but it still didn't seem to be enough. At the end of my sophomore year, I was exhausted and discouraged. I had a lower GPA than I ever wanted and I had no idea what to do.
This semester, I'm lucky enough to be one of his students. I've gotten to experience what it's like to be taught by a man that seems to know everything, but thanks to this blog, I've gotten to know him beyond his knowledge of English grammar. Today, I want to share those things with you, because Dr. Miller is a man worth getting to know.
This is about women being valued as less than men, a view that is clearly contradictory to the way Jesus interacted with women. It's about a woman wanting to be valued for her intellect, ambition, and passion, not her body. It's about Christians protecting the rights of all who have been made in the image of God.
