While beginning a healthy lifestyle, the majority of people think eating healthy means going on a “diet” and fail to follow through. A diet is restricting the food you consume for a period of time.

We have heard that everyone struggles with something or with multiple things and they can be small or big. Struggles stem from past experiences or from a current experience that is completely foreign to us. One of my struggles is letting go of situations that have reached out of my control. Before I have come to the end of myself and surrendered it to the Lord, I need to ensure that I did all that I could. I make sure that I dotted all my i’s, crossed all my t’s and if I’ve already exhausted myself in trying to make it look what I think it should look like, I break.

Two years into my collegiate career, maintaining a high level of academic success has been an achievable task. Upon reflection of how I got here and what makes me a successful student, I realized that one of the main drivers is my work ethic: The Feather Online.
As I learned more about the amazing achievements of The Feather, I felt like a child on Christmas morning. The Feather felt like a gift to Ethan and therefore to me. As a junior, he is currently taking two Feather classes that are teaching him, in a most excellent way, how to make films. All this while still in high school?
As an oversea student from Shenzhen, China, I absorbed a completely different foreign culture and learned a lot from it. I first arrived in the United States three years ago, and experienced the warm welcome from many Americans.

Mr. (Terry) Richards is one of my favorite teachers from childhood. I greatly respect and appreciate his approach to teaching. My memories are that he was kind often, disciplined in love when necessary, instructed in faith and allowed his love for Jesus to permeate his actions.
