"The Prayer Of A Righteous Man Has Power To Prevail"

Pray For Passion 2017

On New Year's day me and a few of my friends are making the long drive, as college students from all across the country will be, for the Passion worship conference in Atlanta. The last Passion event at the Georgia-Dome attracted over 60,000 students, and this year they are expecting even more than that. With this event being one of the last events to be held in the Georgia-Dome before it is torn down, this year is sure to be one for the ages.

At Passion conferences the best worship bands in the industry come together to put the three-day event on. Speakers such as Louie Giglio, Beth Moore, Francis Chan and others come to speak. The worship albums created after the event are always one of the most popular worship albums every year. But the speakers and the good music aren't the reason so many people flock to this event.

At Passion lives are changed. God moves in absolutely incredible ways. I've gone twice and I have seen people do complete 180s and sell-out for the Lord and His mission. I know God has done some big times things at Passion in the past, and this year there is potential for Him to do more of the same.

I just want to ask anyone who reads this to pray for the event and for the students going. All of us are struggling with something. Many of the students in attendance won't be Christians, but will be 20-something year olds looking for something, whether that be love, direction or a sense of belonging. Pray for us, for all of us, that God shows up. That He moves the Christians to not be lukewarm, but to live with the urgency the Apostles did. Pray for those of us who won't be Christians, that God can reach them and pull them into eternity in heaven. "The prayer of a righteous man has great power to prevail."

Thank you for reading this and for praying for us. Can't wait to see what God does!

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
