We're celebrating National FirstGen Week by talking about the theme, Faithful & Forward! As students navigating so much throughout our college journey, how can we find hope in the midst of adversity? Speaking from the story of Caleb's inheritance, come reflect on what it means to hold fast to the promises of God, His faithfulness, and how to find strength for the journey.
