I have been looking forward to starting with my online classes for several months. I started my masters in divinity-chaplaincy and it is great and good especially at 59 years old. Like another comment I read I finally after all this time know what I want to be when I grow up and that in itself gives me great peace because I am following what my Lord Jesus wants. So many years He let me experience all the things I thought I wanted, those just are not worth it for the long haul. I have got to travel a lot and will do so again someday but with different interests in mind, I have a treasure of a wife who is also going to school and we have one daughter and one son with six grandkids. Thanks for letting me share.

New student to Liberty University and just something God put on my heart about love.
Love can become very complicated. We shelter it, we hide it, we suffocate it. We try to force it to be under our control and influence. We push it, we neglect it, we take advantage of it's faithfulness. Soon all that love feels it it is never good enough. Can simple love change hearts? Does God shelter us, or does He give us free will? Does He hide from us just because we are not perfect? Does God push us forward when we are not ready? Does He neglect that we are His own? Yet in all this God was simple with His love. He stretched out His arms and died to Himself, so that we may always run to grace with open arms. That is how humble God's love came, how simple, that at any time we could turn from our sin, and receive forgiveness. God bless.

I am very excited to say that i will be starting my first semester and online classes this month in Theology/Biblical studies at the age of 29! God has moved me in ways I never saw coming and has released many fruits that has been hidden in my heart. He has put an sensation in my heart longing for his love and knowledge and to reach out to fellow people who are lost in need of Christ, just like i was at one point. Looking forward to meeting new people who the Lord will put in place. God is good!

I can't wait to start my first online classes in May. I am 61 yrs old and am about to embark on a Theological/Biblical studies journey with Liberty. I love the online community that LU provides to its' students. I have volunteered to facilitate a bible study group at my church and am finding it very enriching! It took 61 yrs to find my direction and I am not stopping now!

I can imagine how it will feel to be graduating the spring of your final year. I still have 2 years to go, and maybe a little bit more depending on how many classes I take. I am 52 years old and I know what I want to be when I grow up. All of my plans have been laid out before me. God has put me on this path and I am experiencing all of the blessings that come with it. But it still isn't easy. My children and I are still struggling because I don't have a full time job so I can go to school. We don't get to go out to dinner, movies or go on vacation. I do know that if I persevere, I will show them that it doesn't matter where you are in age, God will honor His promise to have the best for you if you submit to His leadership. I have finally gained that wisdom and I MUST persevere for all our sakes, it just gets hard when temptations to go out and make an easy buck come along. If I quit school I could be running a real estate office and making more money. But that really isn't going to be as satisfying as working for a nonprofit and being involved in the community, a light in the darkness to shine for Christ. So I pray for myself and the boys, knowing that in 2 years I too will be graduating and celebrating this achievement. It is well worth the work and the wait.
