Most people lose their faith when they go away to college; however, I grew closer to God by a glow-in-the-dark cup. I distinctly remember my freshman year of college feeling like something was “off,” like I was missing something. That night, I was studying with dim lights, and I reached for my glow-in-the-dark cup, and then it hit me (light bulb). I was missing church! On the cup was both a local church and Cru logo. I spent the rest of the night learning about the church and made plans to visit the following Sunday. That was the first time I started to fully understand Christianity and made it my own religion and not just my parents. I spent the rest of my college time involved with Cru and student leadership, running the media. Talk about God being the light!
