Trusting God for tuition

The subject of college tuition came up while visiting Columbus over Christmas. One of my relatives asked how I made it through college. My answer was similar to the one given by this Christian college student.

Mrs. Piggle Wiggle

Jefferson is currently reading and enjoying a Mrs. Piggle Wiggle book. Remember those books? She’s a funny lady who helps out the children in her town. This article uses Mrs. Piggle Wiggle’s poor hearing to highlight the need for parents to listen to their children.

Remembering Dr. Gustafson

During my high school and college years, I became acquainted with the work of BJU’s Dr. Dwight Gustafson. He composed some beautiful music to accompany several movies produced by the school. In this article, several faculty members remember his influence on their ministries.

How much?

For Christmas, I received five Hardy Boys, two Tom Swift Jr., and one Tom Swift Sr. novels. After looking at the link above, maybe collecting these juvenile mystery novels isn’t such a childish idea.
