Senior Thesis Title: The Necessity of Pain

Senior Thesis Statement: In order to live a good life, we must stop the demonization of pain and accept struggle as a necessary part of life.

Brief Description of Senior Thesis: The 21st century culture has created a network of painkillers and a mindset that the good life is devoid of struggle. This worldview has crept into the lives of Christians as a result of a world moving away from God. This has become very detrimental not only to our physical well being but also our relationship with God. To thrive mentally, physically, and relationally is impossible without struggle. 

Post Graduation Plans:  To double major in welding and automotive service technology at Moore Tech
