Family Spotlights


Paul and Laurie Brasher of Pell City, Alabama, prayed that God would direct the path their children should follow for their education.

 “Without a doubt, the University of Mobile was confirmed in each of our hearts,” Laurie said. “We made the decision with much prayer to enroll our son, Seth, and he has had such a blessed experience at UMobile that our daughter, Anna, wanted to enroll as well.”

 Today, Seth is a senior majoring in worship leadership and president of the Student Government Association, and Anna is a freshman majoring in nursing.

 Laurie and Paul said it’s easy to list the top three reasons their family chose the University of Mobile:

 ·       The presence of the Lord is all around! There is no doubt that the Lord is praised on campus!

 ·       The highly qualified professors are very caring and help the students adjust to college life, giving wisdom and advice as well as teaching them the curriculum.

·       There are so many diverse activities for our children to be involved in. Seth volunteers in ministries that were not offered in our community or home church, and he has become an even strong leader because of the opportunities he has had at UMobile.

 “I believe that God will grow wisdom and knowledge in a person when the Lord is exalted first in their lives,” Laurie said. “When you enter the gates at UMobile, you not only feel the presence of the Lord, you can see the presence of the Lord in the faculty and students.”
