"One of my passions is helping students to grow and flourish into adulthood, especially the college years. For many, college is a time when students think critically about who they are and where they want to go with their lives. My favorite part about working with college students is the relational aspect and getting to journey with students as they live in the context of community. My hope is that the ladies of Cross and Tharp will leave the year feeling as though they have grown autonomously and have embraced the community around them by living and learning together."
"For such a time as this." - Esther 4:14"14 For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father's family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?"
- New International Version (NIV)
This year, the lovely ladies of Cross and Tharp Halls will be proudly serving Project: Free2Fly, a local organization that seeks to support, nurture, and empower women. Project: Free2Fly teaches local women the trade of sewing and provides mentorship, care, and an avenue for earning an income. Our students will have the opportunity to volunteer to raise awareness for this cause throughout the year.
