Senior Thesis Statement: Adoption should be a main priority in every Christian family’s lives because it directly coincides with the Biblical concept of salvation, it furthers the kingdom of God and, even though adoption is costly, it directly parallels the Bible’s view of worthy financial investments.

Brief Description of Senior Thesis: Adoption is a reflection God’s love when He took us into his own family of believers through Jesus Christ. By fulfilling our duty to adopt, we are obeying God’s commandment to love our neighbor and take care of the orphan. Caring for children has always been a topic of passion in my life. Through my thesis, I strive to prove and persuade that adoption should be a passion in every Christian’s life as well, because it spreads the Gospel message to the world.   

Plan for next year?  To major in History with a minor in classical education at Hillsdale College 

What advice or encouragement would you give to younger students at Westminster?

The little things in this short chapter of our lives deserve to be cherished because what seems tedious now, will help shape you in the future; the people you see everyday will not always be around. So keep loving one another and building each other up.  You never know what even a quick smile in the hallway can do.  

Please share a funny memory or highlight from your time at Westminster:
The No-Math Study Hall 

Favorite Bible Verse: “But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31

Prayer Request: I ask for prayers for my entire family as we all move to Michigan to start a new chapter of our lives, for me as I start college, and for my little sister, Claire, as she starts a new school well.
