United Methodist Student Day Sunday

Kindness seems to be in Laura Harness’s DNA. At Wesleyan College in Macon, Georgia, Laura is majoring in business administration.

Experiencing God’s love at Brooks (Georgia) United Methodist Church gave her a strong faith foundation.

“My family joined when I was 6 years old,” Laura recalls. “I was an acolyte, a volunteer for the children’s church when I was older, and I went on mission trips to Kentucky and Eleuthera, Bahamas. Now, I visit when I can and keep in touch with members.” In Macon, as a member of the Wesleyan Disciples, she helps create campus worship services every Sunday evening.

The Gift of Hope Scholarship, supported by generous gifts on United Methodist Student Day, was a godsend to Laura.

“Without it,” she says, “I would not be able to attend a school that I not only love but also (where I) will do my best individual growing. The class sizes are small, and the professors really get to know me. This nourishment is helping me to become a better student and a better individual for the world. Also, it has provided an environment to grow in my faith.”

Teaching people to manage finances, Laura hopes to share her talent as well as her faith.

“I know how confusing talking about money can be,” she says. “I want to help others understand more about their finances so that they are never blindsided.”
