Preparing for exam week can be stressful, but what if you’re engulfed in your faith? Do you ever feel bad for spending more time on your studies than on religious activities?

“Sometimes as human beings, we think college is more important than everything — even God,” said Amanda Wesley, psychology major and Heavenly Creations Gospel Choir chaplain. “So, we focus on classes and grades, when we should focus on him. He is the only one who can get us through exam week. God is the one who keeps me sane during ‘hectic’ week.”

Tips for staying in touch with God during exam week:

  • Listen to worship music.
    • “As I’m studying, I listen to worship music,” Wesley said. Keeping God with you while you study helps because it lets him know that you want him to guide you through your educational journey.
  • Pray.
    • “Every time I feel stressed and overwhelmed, I put everything on pause and start praying,” said Imani Wiley-English, senior music performance major and Heavenly Creations Gospel Choir president. No matter where you are, if you need to talk to God, do it. He is always there to listen. Remember to also pray for others.
  • Study the word.
    • Find devotional apps so you can study the word on the go. We are all busy, but we must stay connected to God. Also, find time to deeply study the word at night or when you wake up. The college has bible study groups that you are welcome to attend.
  • Go to church.
    • Go to your home church or find one in the area that feels like home. Invite friends to go with you. It’s always good to have praying warriors as friends to support you through the good and bad times.
