When I was a Resident Assistant Junior year of college, I often wrote “letters” to the girls on my hall. I’ve decided to post them because, well, they are good reminders even now!!

As the reality of college sets in and we realize we’re here for the long haul, please rest in the Lord. Cling to His peace and depend on His strength; with Him, we can do all things, even squeeze 38 hours worth of work into 24. Don’t forget to take time to sit and rest in Him. Don’t forget to take time for yourself—I’ve heard it said that every person should take a walk alone every day. So, today I tried that and boy did it feel good to be alone with my thoughts and prayers. College is the definition of over-stimulating; please don’t forget to slow down and enjoy the simple things in life. Read a book, bake cookies, call your grandma. And come visit your RA! I’d love to chat with you girls about how college is going so far for you. Don’t hesitate to knock, although I do ask that late night visits are kept to emergencies only. Cora has very early morning placements and while we love to see you, bedtime has to come early for both of us. But please visit any time during the afternoon/evening! I know I’m in and out like a mad woman but please—leave a note and I’ll stop by. I want to connect with each of you. It is the desire of my heart to know you each individually and I’m making it a goal to do that to the best of my ability.
Now, some business. The deadline for finishing your installations of the anti-virus is on Tuesday. PLEASE GET THIS FINISHED AND TO ME ASAP! Thanks!
