We really felt that God led us to open our home to a needy young woman. But she stole from us and then vanished. Did we misunderstand God?

My boyfriend and I are living together. My parents are upset about this, but I don't see anything wrong with it. What do you think?

A friend has hinted that God must be punishing us by severely handicapping our three-year-old daughter. Is he right?

I really prayed about college, and I thought God was telling me to go here, but now I'm not sure.
Billy Graham writes, "I urge you to stay right where you are (unless you become absolutely convinced that God is leading you elsewhere). Your experience isn't unusual; many find college (or any other major change in life) a bit disorienting at first."
I'll be heading into my last year of college at the end of the summer, and I'm already terrified because I don't know what I'll be doing after I get out. I know you'll tell me to pray about this, and I do, but I'm still afraid I'll make a wrong decision. Am I doing something wrong?
No, you aren't necessarily doing anything wrong; in fact, it's right for you to pray about your future and seek God's guidance (as I often say in this column).
