A Crossing in My Life

Esther Wysong, a recent graduate of Missouri Baptist University, shares about an event in her past which drastically changed her life. “It caused me to cling to my faith in God and learn to trust Him with my future, no matter what it might hold, as He changed my story from one of hurt, pain and brokenness to one of hope, forgiveness and joyfulness.”

Adderall Nation: Perfectly Dangerous

As final exams kick into full speed at college campuses nationwide, if only there was something that could help students kick into full speed as well. Medical studies show college students are using the drug Adderall, both legally and illegally, more than ever as a way to stay alert during those all-nighters.
