College Admissions - A Personal Perspective

Posted on September 12, 2016 at 8:05 PM

By Jennifer Brase

As school begins and the long days of Summer fade into the first days of Fall, I am reminded of how fast our children grow up. In fact, this week I sent my own son off to college. It is a bittersweet time; on one hand I know he is ready to leave the nest confident that he has become a responsible, godly young man. On the other hand, I am grieving the loss of the presence that he has had in our home for 18 years. Even though I have done college counseling for years and guided many students through this process, this time it is my own son, which made me understand on a personal level, all the complex feelings parents have regarding the whole college process.

 

When parents worry about college, they are really worrying about whether they have done enough as a parent to equip their child to succeed. Did I teach them to work hard? Do they know how to make good decisions? Are they equipped to handle conflict? These are the questions that are wrapped up in every child’s college search. I can tell you that regardless of how well you think you’ve done or not done as a parent, God is sovereign and He makes up for the things that we lack in parenting¬–including where they will go to college. As much as we think we have equipped our kids, God will ultimately guide our children to where He wants them to be to continue to develop them more fully into His image. This should bring us comfort knowing that the Lord is making up for all our parenting inadequacies.

 

As you send your child off to school this year, turn your worries into prayers for their future knowing that the Lord will honor those prayers. And one day soon, you will be dropping off your son or daughter at college knowing that they are right where God wants them.

Those men happened to be so thrilled to learn them and now have actually been using them. Appreciation for simply being well helpful and also for settling on some impressive themes most people are really wanting to know about. Our own honest apologies for not expressing gratitude to you sooner.

I want to express some thanks to you for rescuing me from such a crisis. Because of scouting through the world wide web and meeting principles that were not powerful, I assumed my entire life was well over. Existing without the presence of answers to the difficulties you have sorted out through your entire site is a critical case, as well as those which might have adversely affected my career if I hadn't discovered your web site. Your mastery and kindness in taking care of all the pieces was useful. I don't know what I would've done if I hadn't come upon such a thing like this. I am able to at this point look forward to my future. Thanks for your time so much for the specialized and result oriented guide. I will not hesitate to refer the website to anybody who would need counselling on this matter.
