    "I didn’t see Him or feel Him there for me when I was in that moment of rock bottom. I thought I was alone and that no one loved me. But when I look back on it now I can totally see how God was there the whole time and how he was working in my life then and using things step by step to draw me back to Him.

    “New Life Academy prepared me well for college and my internship. The teachers encouraged discussion and invited us to ask questions. I felt they really wanted us to know and understand the course work. They didn’t just want us to learn it for a test. They had high expectations of us. MIT was not overwhelming because I had developed good study habits and test-taking strategies."

  • Just BE It

    A poster in my high school locker room said something like this: “Adversity doesn’t build character, it reveals it.” As I’ve experienced challenges in my own life, I’ve thought a lot about this old poster, and I really believe the concept has Biblical roots.
