How do we become men?


When it comes to the topic of manhood you know it’s important, probably because you know what’s at stake. You know the stats on fatherless homes, or maybe even experienced it first-hand. You know there’s a need for “real men” but find the road to attaining this title yourself rather ambiguous. Culture works overtime (consciously […]

Under Judicial Review


With first-day jitters, students arrive from Florida, Alaska, Pennsylvania, Liberty University’s very own Virginia for Judicial 2018. Sheltered by a grove of trees beside their spacious dorm, students wave goodbye to brave parents and meet friends, old and new! Over a lemonade, corn hole, and the clamor of a foursquare, talk of Moot Court and […]

There is a Place for You


What does it take to be a godly woman in 2018? Good homemaking skills? An artistic bent? A versatile, down-to-earth personality? Athletic strength, musical talent, good SAT scores, or an organized closet? A big circle of friends or being pursued by godly guys?   No.   The only thing we need to live a life […]

Morning came quickly after an exciting night of debate and voting. As students hustled into morning session, one could feel the anticipation building for the day.   Following the morning show which once again left students on the edge of their seats, a special speaker from Operation Christmas Child, Yuliya Shubani, spoke on the sovereignty […]

Forgive Me


Students anxiously leaned forward to catch every moment of the Morning Show today. What began as a seemingly normal day at class took an interesting twist as the words “campaign” and “sabotage” were introduced to the audience. Through the humorous retelling of TeenPact State Class experiences, students see themselves in the Morning Show characters as […]

When Losing Hurts


TeenPact National Elections are right around the corner. This has given me nearly a year to reflect on my own experience with the election process.   Wow. What a journey.

My Friend, Jimmy Brazell


Jimmy Brazell continues to inspire me.   I met Jimmy when we were volunteering with TeenPact for the first time. We were both attending the ministry’s inaugural Staff Training event and quickly became friends. Providence would have it that we would staff together not once, not twice, but three times that year. Jimmy lived life […]
