The Gossip Mill - Lisa Clark

Psalm 39:1
"I will watch my ways and keep my tongue from sin; I will put a muzzle on my mouth..."

I had an hour, long phone conversation with a mom this week heartbroken over recent events involving her college- aged son.  The conversation began like this…”Hi Lisa, can you pray for me?”

Through her sobs, I understood she needed prayer and the only other person she knew to call for prayer was unavailable.  At that moment, I thanked the Lord for literally clearing my schedule an hour before.  I now knew why He cleared it.

Tips from Tori: First Born Going to College!

 "Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you every step you take"  Joshua 1:9

Before College
  1. Pray with them for their college experience and future roommate!
  2. Buy dorm room stuff along the way making it easier and not fussy to complete all at one time.
  3. Take time to clean out their room at home TOGETHER, collect mementos and put in memory boxes so when they come home from college their room at home is fresh and inviting.
  4. Write notes to your future college bound student that you will strategically hide during move in day.
  5. Have a family picture taken…preferably, in front of your home! Print these pics to have around the house for when you return without your new college freshman.
