How to Stand Strong Through the College Years

By: Kristen Clark and Bethany Beal


It’s HARD being a Christian girl today’s culture. In fact, it’s so hard, that 80% of highly churched teens walk away from their by age 29. 

Thankfully, we have hope to succeed because of God’s Grace. 

“But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” (2 Corinthians 12:9).

Here are 8 practical strategies to help you stand strong during the college years.

1. Spend Time in the Word Every Day

2. Pray for Strength

3. Find a Church and Attend Weekly

4. Get Involved in a Bible Study

5. Get Yourself a Mentor

6. Surround Yourself with Godly Friends

7. Choose to be the Influencer

8. Always Keep the Big Picture in Mind

    This is exactly what I’ve been getting prayed over at church for weeks. Im about to start up my education again at an all women’s university, and at first I was so nervous! what if university meant falling away from God and into a bad scene. Things like this don’t happen all at once but over time, and i’ll be at university for my undergraduate then masters! So I started actively seeking prayer and praying myself. It has brought so much comfort into my life. I loved hearing your suggestions too, I’m going to try to seek out a mentor because that sounds like a great idea. As for being the influencer, well thats the kinda of stuff I dream about. To be the kind of women people pray to meet and to be a clear example of a wholesome life style. Hearing all this has been so refreshing, thank you!!
