God Is Good

The BSM chapel inspires students to live out their faith.

Hanson: My faith is extremely important to me. When I was growing up, it was taboo if you didn’t get up on Sunday mornings and go to church with grandma. It was so embedded in us, that if we missed a day of church we would think ‘is God looking at me?’ I mean, I may not have had a good understanding of what faith was at that time––because of course, I was just a little child––but I understood that it was very important to my family. I grew up in the Catholic faith, and I started going to Sunday school and Bible classes and Wednesday worship and all that stuff.

Hanson: From a young age, I realized that even though I was so busy with playing with friends or doing my homework or having other distractions, I had to find some time to give my time to that higher being. So from that young age growing up to who I am today, I stuck with my faith. Because throughout my journey in life, I realized that without my faith in God, I wouldn’t be the person I am today or where I am today. So I kept my faith, and I’m not perfect, but I still hold on strong to God and still worship and give Him thanks for all his grace and mercies. And it’s been going good so far.

Hanson: God has been good. He’s been doing a lot for me, a lot for my family, and no matter what the circumstances are, I can always feel his presence and know not to worry about it. It’s going to be okay.

LeBlanc: I was at Angie’s house a couple years ago. Braden was a baby, and all of a sudden her phone was beeping, and I said, ‘Oh Angie, I think you got a call.’ And she goes, ‘Oh no, that’s just my little reminder to pray.’ That is so cool. She and God are really close. And that’s really inspirational to me too–– little habits that remind us that people and our relationship to God is important.
