Comfort Zone

Today we are excited to share with you the first blog post in our newest series, “A Day in the Life….of a High Schooler”. High School freshman Elise Haviland shares with us her experiences as a High Schooler and student at HOPE Academy.

 

A Day in the Life

 

 

It’s quite difficult to step outside your comfort zone, is it not?
 
Comfort Zone

 

The first time I willingly stepped outside my comfort zone was when I decided to leave my classmates of 8 years and come to Hope Academy. Claiming I was an introvert, I never needed to make new friends before. Hope was a whole new experience and I was filled with nervous energy when I found out I would be attending the 2015-2016 school year.

 

I felt at home instantly. The students of Hope Academy greeted me with jubilant expressions. I shortly found out how godly and supportive they were as well. Teachers were so kind in making sure I understood the material. I was getting along quite well.

 

Today, I walk through the doors and attend an engaging, informative Bible class. My math and science teacher always makes sure that I understand information in both subjects. My element, English, is like a breath of fresh air every time I walk into the classroom. I feel comfortable at Hope Academy. It is a place where I can be myself and experience the love of God filling the building.
I challenge you this month to step outside of your comfort zone and experience what God has in store for you. Whether it’s sharing the Gospel with a neighbor or coworker, or taking a mission trip to a third world country, God can use someone to impact your life and He can also use you to have a lasting impression on someone else’s.

 


Share your story, how have you stepped outside your comfort zone? What was the result of doing that??
