Looking back on my life then, I can see how some of my personal identities play into my missional calling. I am a person that really likes helping and taking care of people. I hate seeing someone in pain or having a hard time. It really plays a role on my emotions, so I always feel the need to help people in need. But I also really like taking care of children. Children are so fun and free. These identities all played into my missional calling to help people and be there for someone who needs support

and the aroma of coffee fills my small two bedroom apartment. My clothes smell like they just came from the dry cleaners and the lightly starched blouse clings to my skin as I rush to beat the clock. Briefcase in one hand and the cup coffee in the other as I shut the door and zip down the stairs. Six months have passed since I've graduated from high school and life couldn't get any better. However, there's only one problem...that 's not how I picture my post-high school graduation self anymore. A

Finding our true calling in life isn’t always easy. To me a calling is something that you find joy in and are passionate about.

Unfortunately, I was never athletically inclined. Sure, I played on the playground just like any other kid. However, regarding being good enough to play on a team, of any kind, I was never any good.

Psalms 103:8 reminds us that, “The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.” So, I know I can depend on God’s mercy to help me deal with challenges and meet my goals.

because when I came in the campus for the first time for my tour of the campus I felt very welcomed and at home and the school offers everything I was looking for in college. Johnson University Florida gives me the opportunity to build my relationship with Christ himself, while being able to study for my degree, and participate in the sports I love.
