10 Lessons from College

 Hello friends!

Here's 10 lessons I learned from college. Maybe they can be an encouragement to you today.

1. Ministry happens in the context of relationships.
2. Time is short, so enjoy the season of life you’re in right now. Don’t always be looking toward the next season and miss the blessings of the current season you’re in.
3. Have a routine of set sleep.
4. Don’t wait till last minute to do things.
5. Prioritize relationships.
6. Get out of your comfort zone and meet new people. Somebody is probably waiting for you to reach out to him.
7. Have your time with God every day no matter what.
8.  You can NOT trust your feelings, and there are absolutes.
9. Encouragement and healing go together. When people serve, life is no longer meaningless.
10. Focus on the blessings, good things. It’s easy to find the bad – choose to look for the positive! 😊


  1. These were an encouragement to me and ones I will try to put into practice. Thank you for sharing what you learned. Love, Mom

  2. Amen, Ashley! These are wonderful lessons no matter where we are in life.

  3. Great lessons, Ashley! #2, #7, & #9 are my favorites. Thanks for sharing what you learned!

  4. These are excellent life lessons! I love #2, 7, 8 and 10! Relationship with Jesus is first, family second, others last. Relationships are so important! And you can never trust your feelings if they contradict God's word. So many things to focus on and be thankful for! Many blessings to you, may the Lord bless you as you serve Him in missionary service!

    1. Yes, that is so true. Thank you for your visit today!

  5. These are spot on! I am an older college student, and they are still very applicable.
