Elizabeth is a returning student, entering her sophomore year at FC. She is interested in Liberal Studies, Counseling and/or Therapy, Writing and Literature. She comes from a family of 7. Both her father and sister attended FC. Elizabeth’s father is a preacher currently working with a small congregation. The church is not able to pay him full time, so her father works two full time jobs to support his family. Her mother is a homemaker. They are unable to help with the total cost of her college education. “My first year at FC was a year full of new experiences and challenges. I found myself growing in ways I didn’t expect and learning things about myself that I never knew. I’ve made some of the best friends I have ever had and learned invaluable life lessons. While I am looking forward to the future, I’m also trying to enjoy the present. One thing I’m constantly learning is that if God is in control, no matter what happens in this life, I can trust that my eternity is safe in Him.”
