This song is very very moving to anyone who is going through a hard time in life and dealing with self confidence. In the song it says, "Fear he is a liar He will rob your rest Steal your happiness Cast your fear in the fire' Cause fear he is a liar". In the song, it is talking about people getting in your head and telling you that you aren't worth it. The music video is very sad but eye opening.

This song is such a great reminder that God gives us blessings that we can be very grateful for.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
