Borden of Yale by Geraldine Guinness TaylorNever have I read a book of a life lived so few years who impacted the Kingdom of Christ to such a degree! This book was written in 1926, just thirteen years after William Borden died and saw his Saviour face to face. Here I am, having never really heard about this man until earlier this year, 103 years after his death.
The fixed purpose upon which William set his focus upon was laser-like. The focus? The doing of the will of God for his life. At a time when many young men his age are only interested in girls, money, or partying, William wholeheartedly was pursuing Gods will for his life - that of the preparation of the giving of his life to reach the Muslims in northwest China.
What I find fascinating about this story and what speaks to the character of this young man, was the realness of his walk and Christian life while going through college. He wasnt just preparing for some future event. He believed in reaching everyone possible around him while going through college. He prayed for and attempted to reach the hardest to reach on the Yale college campus. He started the Yale Hope Mission, to reach those whose lives had been primarily wrecked and ruined by sin. Although of a loving disposition, he remained unwavering on the truth of the doctrines of the faith and unashamedly held to them in his personal belief and also towards faith organizations to which he invested the money his father had left him.
It is so true what is on his tombstone - Apart from faith in Christ, there is no explanation for such a life. From a human perspective, we do not understand why God allowed Borden to be on the field for such a short time.
I like what Walter Erdman, missionary to Korea and contemporary of Bordens, said after finding out about the death of William Borden:
I have been thinking more and more, since the news came, that the length of time God permits us to stay here is not related to a certain amount of work He wants us to do, so much as to a certain closeness of relationship to Himself He wants us to attain.
Bordens intimate relationship with God spurs us on today to pursue Christ with all of heart, soul, and mind! May it be so with every single one who names the name of Jesus Christ!

Start Applying to the Hardest Programs
There is no such thing as an "easy" college degree, nor a shortcut to obtaining higher education. Whether you're pursuing an online degree or studying on campus, higher education requires a significant investment of time and energy, and anyone who says otherwise is likely not a reliable source of information about legitimate colleges and academic programs. However, not all degrees take the same amount of time and effort, and some result in more lucrative career opportunities. To determine the easiest bachelor's degree for you, consider your abilities and your specific school. Some people are naturally adept at complex math, for example, while others excel at writing.
Before you declare your major, you better know what you're getting yourself into, collegiettes! Not all majors are created equal; some are harder than others. We found a study by the National Survey of Student Engagement that measured how college students spend their time. The organization surveyed , full-time freshmen and seniors from more than colleges and universities, and the results showed which areas of study had the students who spent the most time preparing for class. College students from around the country in these majors told us why their areas of study are so difficult. Across the board, students studying engineering spent more time preparing for class than any other major.
