Comments on "Advice from Your BYU-Pathway Friends"
I’ve procastrinated for a year to take this beautiful program inspired by our heavenly father, so now I’m exciting to start again my studies.
So nice 🙂
Anything worth doing is worth doing well. There is no going back once taking up a new course in life. Not even contemplated at this point.
Merci beaucoup, je vais le faire
Thanks, I will do that!
This is so beautiful. I would love to be like them through their examples.
BYU-Pathway is an inspired program, a better way to education.
It helps us learn and increase our faith in Jesus Christ. It helps us to become disciple leaders in our families, communities, and Church.
To achieve those goals, we have to diligently learn by seeking the Lord’s help and applying what we are learning.
I am excited to begin but up to now l haven’t receive a message from my mentors/facilitators.
I was informed that classes are to resume September this year
I pray that Heavenly Father will inspire me, because I can do nothing of my self without His help.
Really inspiring 😊
BYU-Pathway is a nice program. I hope to learn a lot of things to grow both spiritually and emotionally to strengthen my testimony.
I am encouraged by all the advice from our General Authorities to enroll in the course. I believe God will straighten me to finish it.
Wow, what excellent inspiring comments. Thanks all and God bless.
This gives me more courage.
I’m so happy for your strong testimony.
To have quality education is difficult, especially in part of Africa. With BYU-Pathway, I understand the importance of education.
I can learn with BYU-Pathway. I know it is very difficult to have a good education, but with PathwayConnect I can feel free for my passion and for my educational future. That is why I thank God for this opportunity given to me. I thank all the friends and missionaries for their support in giving me courage.
Trust in the Lord Jesus Christ and press forward to do your education; that is my advice to classmates. To be prayerful over you education.
I like this advice.
Learning and study is part of God’s plan for us. We also need to pray for God and the Holy Ghost to guard us, especially when we don’t feel like it.
I love this; it’s so encouraging. I will not quit until it’s done.
Do what you want for the Lord will be blessing his sons and daughters.
I have just been enrolled in PathwayConnect, and I am so happy and lucky to be here. God bless everybody in PathwayConnect. All thanks to Jesus.
It will never be easy when you are starting a new level in life. But it depends on your efforts and time. You can make it by believing.
I love this advice!
“If you think it is hard. It means you are on the right path.” So, keep on believing. The promise is sure. “No one will do it for you except you.” You don’t need to know everything to start doing. Start now!
Press forward even though it’s challenging
I immensely love this stunning program! I usually pray God to have my situation changed, while God gives me a situation to change me!
It is a beautiful program with profound and inspiring teachings.
Brothers and Sisters, this is the most inspirational program to see the Lord’s hands manifested in fulfilling the commandment of education, in learning by study and faith. Prioritizing heavenly help makes any other difficulties open up to see who you want you to become. By small and simple things, great things are brought to pass.
I love your testimonies. I really feel inspired. Thank you very much.
I know when you put your shoulder to the wheel you will push along. My Brothers and Sisters, nothing is impossible with God, there is a light at the tunnel, do not give up.
Just remember that hard things make great people, so become great by accomplishing hard things
If the Lord can help others to do it, He can also do the same for me.
As it always in my mind “If others can, why can’t I” I rely everything to HIM, because there can never be success without failure. I pray in everything about my studies because He is in the details of my everything.
A wonderful program
Why stopping? Keep on keeping on.
Someone told me that many students are enrolling, yet not all of them are able to continue. I do not know exactly the reasons behind it; some say it was due to unavoidable circumstances.
Okay I will go with faith and make it work
Thanks, I will do that.
