I’m kind of an apostle. That is, I have been sent places. Since I graduated from college 11 ½ years ago, I’ve lived in 17 homes for at least a month (and others for a couple of weeks). That’s a lot of moving.

Fact: Books are the best presents to give (barring, of course, all those other fabulous but intangible gifts of love, time, grace, and hugs). For one reason, books are easy to wrap – no more of those awkward corners and creative cover-ups. For another, they’re a gift you can borrow.

When I started college, I made a study plan to ace my classes and connected with an InterVarsity chapter to grow spiritually. However as I sat in a “freshman success” seminar listening to the presenter explain the importance of caring for mind, bodies, and souls during college, I realized that I wasn’t quite clear on how to plan for making healthy choices on campus.
