When I answered God’s call to ministry, I made a commitment to be “all in.” That decision and
two deaths in my family during my first semester at Trevecca led me to new ways to serve.
My peer mentor and the student president of Women in Ministry Network (WIMN) helped
me work through my grief during that fall semester. Their impact on me made me want to
have that same kind of impact on others, and I realized that I did not simply want to know
about God but that I wanted knowing God to change me. I began looking for ways to integrate
classroom learning with participation in God’s activity and learned to serve others—as
a peer mentor, as president of WIMN, as the leader of a Merge group, as a mentor with Kid-
Power, and as an intern at Blakemore Church of the Nazarene.
What I have learned at Trevecca—in and out of the classroom—has changed me and the way I
see the world, other people, and myself. I see the way God is at work in redeeming the world,
and in that reality I know there is hope.
