Each year, Holsby is blessed with a lot of creative students, with talent in music, photography, art, graphics, video and so much more. Julie Lind (from Denmark) and Nathan Peters (Canada) are two such students from the 2011-12 school year. While at Holsby, Julie and Nathan collaborated on a music video entitled “Slow Down,” featuring an original song by Julie.
Here is what they had to say about their time at Holsby:
Julie: “A lot of us come to Holsby to figure out our lives, and work on our relationship with God. To me that meant putting aside my stressful everyday life for a while and really surrender to God. And that is exactly what you can do at Holsby; take that deep breath, slow down and know that God is right there with you, just like he was with Jeremiah.”
Nathan: “Coming to Holsby has really given me a chance to be encouraged and to use and practice the gifts that God has given me. I attended Holsby as a student (during winter term) as well as Staff (in the spring). I really had a chance to explore my life with Christ and to share that with others. During my last few days in Sweden, I had the ability to film this video and as I reflected on the words of the song I started to realize how important it is to “Slow Down” and allow God to speak into our lives.”
