This Is Your Year

Does anyone else feel like 2017 just started?
How can it possibly be 2018 already? If I blink, is someone going to wish me a Happy New Year 2019? Or 2050? Who gave time permission to move this quickly? With every year that passes, somehow it seems like I get less and less done. It can be so easy to let life happen around us. Or to get so focused on what’s right in front of us, on getting to the end of today, we forget to look up.
Let’s be intentional this year about recognizing opportunities when we see them and searching them out when we don’t. And let’s be just as intentional about helping others succeed, as we are about working toward success, ourselves.
Encouraging one another. Cheering each other on. Celebrating each other’s victories. If, for you, being intentional in 2018 means getting serious about pursuing your education, allow us at Missouri Baptist University Troy/Wentzville to encourage you, to cheer you on, to celebrate with you. We have spring classes starting in March, and we’d be thrilled for you to join us.
Give us a call at 636-366-4363, or e-mail us at for more information. Or, if you’d like, stop by our office at 75 College Campus Drive in Moscow Mills. We would love to help you get started. 2018 is new and shiny, and my hope is that 2018 will be a year remembered by some of you as the year you ran hard after your goals. It may go by in the blink of an eye, but right now, stretched out before us, it’s a world of possibilities.
