“So just go for it. Start the conversation. Start the enrollment process. Start speaking with people about it. If you’re serious about going to Newbold, and you’ve prayed about it, then start the process and nothing’s stopping you I don’t think.

Don’t let finances hold you back from pursuing that calling”
