This week’s #wisdomwednesday quote is from John Milton. It’s a great reminder of the reason behind why we actually invest time in learning. #knowGod #enlighteningminds #pba #latergram
Exams to take. Papers to write. People to meet… College life can be really draining at times. To offer students a chance to be refreshed, PBA puts on Christival every fall semester. Christival is three days filled with worship through music and guest speakers, and is a great opportunity for students to briefly escape the stresses of life and refocus on God. #Chistival14 #pbafreshfishlife #collegelife #refocus

People of PBA - Kelsey Taber

When Kelsey Taber came to PBA four years ago, she planned to start applying to medical school her senior year. Now as a senior, she’s doing so much more! A biology major with a concentration in pre-health, Kelsey is the Assistant Resident Director of Johnson Residence Hall and founder of the campus women’s conference “How to Get the Final Rose.” 

Through her time at PBA, Kelsey has learned to listen to God’s leadership and the guidance of others. It was not in her plan to become an RA her sophomore year, nor to become an ARD her junior and senior years of college. But because she listened to God, He gave her direction and she grew as a leader and has come to impact many young women’s lives. Listening to the advice and accountability of others has  equipped her to lead in existing positions, and also to boldly create her own opportunities for leadership.

Kelsey’s advice is to “LISTEN” - to God and to others. Don’t become so focused on the FUTURE that you miss opportunities to grow NOW. 

"This psalm comes from the opening lines of a song celebrating the marriage of a King. Every time that I’ve read these words, however, it draws me to something a bit different. It reminds me of being filled to the measure of the Spirit of God- so much so that your heart can’t help but to overflow with “good themes” for the King. So complete in His presence that your heart and mind stand poised to proclaim these praises, as you wait for this “ready writer” to reveal more the story which is the source of your joy. 
It’s hard to find words, to describe it. But, just take a moment and think back to a time when your heart just overflowed with the goodness of our King. Maybe that was a long time ago? Maybe you’ve never experienced it? Maybe now is the time to try? There’s a first time for everything.” -Lauren
