My Story



HELLO THERE, I'M HEATHER! WELCOME TO MORE THAN A SUNDAY CHRISTIAN, WHERE YOU CAN FIND MY THOUGHTS ON EVERYDAY APPLICATION OF BIBLICAL PRINCIPLES.  

College students especially know the difficulty of balancing school, friends, work, and any variety of other commitments. As a college junior working a part-time job, completing at least 15 hours of clinical rotations per week, and taking a full class load, life can get pretty hectic-believe me. 

So you can better understand my perspective on life, here's a little bit of my story. I grew up on a farm in the rural Midwest, where I learned the value of hard work, dedication, and determination. After highschool, I decided to move to Virginia for college, where I am currently a junior. Moving from the quiet Midwest to the noisy, busy east coast has been a huge difference and a lot of doubts have come with it. Am I good enough to be here? Where do I fit in? Are my values somehow lessened now that I'm no longer at 'home'? Will people understand me? 

Along with all of those doubts, I have learned so much about independence, trusting God, and standing up for what I believe is right. I've had some conversations where I've been encouraged and some conversations where I've left discouraged, but I know that ultimately what matters is not what others think of me. What matters is that, despite discouragement, I follow Christ, make Him known, and live my life for Him. If you are a college student or are struggling with knowing if where you are is where God wants you, I know what you're going through. 

I hope you'll join me in my journey of learning what it means to be a living testament to the Lord.
