The Eagle’s Nest erupted with cheers as students heard the name of their school mentioned on national television. Thanksgiving break was only hours away, but the students at little-known Faith Baptist Bible College in Ankeny, IA were excited for a totally unrelated reason.

On February 2, Faith Baptist Bible College had a rare snow day. Actually, as rare as they are, it was my second one in two years of school at Faith. But still, a snow day at Faith is an indication that the weather is really bad and the roads are sidewalk are not the safest for travel.
Well, unlike the snow day in 2009-2010, the weather on Wednesday, February 2 wasn’t as bad as the forecast had shown only the day before when the announcement was made. But it was still bad enough that churches cancelled their mid-week services.
Well, now that school has been out for three weeks and I have had time to reflect on the school year while accomplishing things at home, I think it’s well past time (now that I have more time) to start posting stories and snippets from my past year at school. They won’t be in any specific order, but as I think of the stories I will record them here.
God was so good to me this year and He gave me many opportunities to learn, serve, teach, and lead at school. Hopefully I can use my blog to communicate the love, joy, and peace that I experienced, the patience, kindness, and goodness with which I was encouraged, and the faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control toward which I was challenged.
Life at Faith Baptist Bible College is definitely an experience, a valuable one. There are so many things to share, just from this last year. My first year was filled with learning opportunities as I adjusted to college life at Faith and got settled into my higher-learning environment. Now I’m weathered and learned, and my year was about utilizing every opportunity God gave me to grow and help others grow. So to God be the glory for what He has done.
