Each Reflection this week features a meditation written by teens for other teens. Listen for words of wisdom from another generation.
AS A COLLEGE freshman, I am asked repeatedly, “What’s your major?” and “What will you do after you graduate?” These questions can be annoying, but they have led me to look closely at the gifts and passions God has given me. I am currently studying elementary education. Now that I can answer “What’s your major?” with confidence, I am waiting patiently for God to reveal how I can best use my passions for God’s purpose.
