10 Things I Want My Daughter to Take to College

On Saturday, my daughter graduated from high school (cue the tears!).


Yesterday I got up, took a DEEP breath, and wrote down 10 things that I think she should take to college. Like every mom, I tend to think of all the things I want to tell her after the fact. This time, I wanted to be ahead of the game. Below is a FREE PDF of 10 things I want her to take to college as well as some printable memory verse cards. 

While I could have given her the good ‘ole instructions of clean your sheets once a week, floss, and take your contacts out every night . . . I wanted this to be more personal and biblical. I wish I had this list going to SMU 28 years ago. (Ouch, that was hard to type!)  AND ~ If you have any sage advice for this newbie mom doing this for the first time, I would love to hear your suggestions! This list is not the perfect 10 but any means ~ I just know my attention span can only absorb so much! Have fun and please know, I am praying for you!  ~ Annie
P.S. If you know anyone who has a daughter headed off to college, please share this with them!Save

    Sweet Annie – This is a wonderful list. It is not too soon to start preparing them with what to take to college. With a rising junior and rising sophomore, I feel the pressure of getting them ready to leave the nest already! This helps me chart the path! Love you!!

      Shannon! I don’t think this list is limited to going to college — in fact, I used it quite a few times yesterday!! You knew me all too well in college . . . I might have needed this a time, or two (or three!). Love you, too.
