#BaylorLights Profile: Kayla Garrett, Humanitarian Engineering
"The next morning, I woke up with both of my eyes swollen shut, and the world was in darkness. ...

"I just sat there in the darkness, in both the physical world and in my heart, and I listened -- to the trees moving, to the birds, to the world breathing. And I realized that, God is in all of that. ... I wouldn't have been able to hear the breath of the world if I had been able to see.

"That moment was so transformative in my view of what it meant to be a Christian -- what it meant to serve God, and to live in His creation. That's when the healing began."

Kayla eventually discovered Baylor University's humanitarian engineering program -- and she "fell in love with the degree, with Baylor and with God, and with what He was calling me to do."
