“When we will allow him, the road God chooses may be long — it may be winding. But nevertheless, wherever he leads us, that road is always going to bring us nearer to him. God left us the answer key for every test that we take in this life. He gave us the correct response for every question we have to answer.”
—Dr. Mike Justus (’74), member of the University’s board of trustees

“I’m learning daily that I’m part of a bigger picture. As a college student, I’ve realized the world we live in is about expectations. I’ve learned to be content where I am. Instead of falling to my knees to give up, I fell to my knees in prayer. Jesus can fix us in a way that no one can ever tell we were broken.”
—Heidi Abston, senior accounting major from Searcy

“I believe in a God that is all powerful — all knowing. The only problem is I don’t know. I don’t have all the powers. I’m not going let any of this keep me from having the faith that I have. I pray that you don’t let these struggles keep you away from who God is and what he can do for you.”
—Aris Ortiz, senior mathematics major from Ola, Arkansas

“There is a tug-of-war between the values of our culture and the values of our faith. Harding can prepare you to exercise the character you build here when you leave for the rest of your life.”
