Clothes, Shoes, Backpacks, Supplies

Many of you may have young school children.  This time of year you’re probably stopping at the local Target or Meijer for annual “Back to School” sales, shopping for clothes, backpacks, and shoes.  Plus, you’re working on checking off the school supply list.  Back to school shopping can break the piggy bank with spending $500+ for one child!  Read more

The Power of Impact by Mari Pionk

I had just finished my lunch in the cafeteria of the Troy campus. As I was just about to gather my things and leave, a familiar, happy face made his way through the doors. I am fairly biased about this certain individual; he brings a certain pop of life and excitement to not only Walsh but to those who are lucky enough to be in his presence. He conveys an attitude of confidence and loyalty to things that hold purpose and meaning to him. So with that, of course I sat back down when he asked me to spend a little bit of time with him while he ate his lunch.
