What if I can’t see?

Imagine you are driving. It’s been quite a drive and you’re a little antsy to get where you’re going. The conditions aren’t the best. Sorta foggy, it’s beginning to drizzle. It’s near nightfall and you think you’re getting lost. O and you’re blindfolded. There are so many options on which way to go, what road to venture down. What do you choose? This is life. Whatever “car” we’ve been given or decided to try and use to get going. Some of us have a Lexus or a 2012 Ford Fusion. While others may drive something along the lines of an[…]

The one where we worshipped in three languages, got ‘adopted,’ and walked like an Egyptian!

A lot has happened in Switzerland this week. So here’s a recap! ICF: A group of us went to Neuhausen to a youth/adult worship event and it was amazing. There were people from around ages 15 to about 30. Everyone got there and socialized while others bought coffee and snacks. Then at eight the craziness began. We filed into a big room with a stage. A video introducing all of the worship team played and then they all appeared. The whole night was multilingual and that was definitely my favorite aspect of the entire evening. We rocked out to songs in English then[…]

The Homecoming Madness

Homecoming week is one of those weeks that is filled to the brim with all kinds of events. Two of my wonderful roomies are on ASG this year and worked their buns off trying to make homecoming week enjoyable for everyone. Every day was themed something different, including blast from the past day, reppin’ yo team day, and country swag day which lead up to our annual carbash and hoedown. Land gym soon became a sweat fest mixed with hay, cowboy boots, donuts, and cider. Everyone line danced until we were all completely drenched. The following evening was the homecoming banquet which[…]

Halloweekend

I’m up to my ears in projects. Homecoming banquet was on Friday. 3 sporting events Saturday. and I worked all day Sunday. ………..I wouldn’t trade this crazy schedule for the world. When I was in high school, I remember being scared out of my mind that I wouldn’t be prepared for college classes. My teachers all talked about time management and using planners. I would like to say to them that I’ve never been able to keep a planner. Every year I start out buying one thinking “this is going to be the year” and then I go strong for[…]

Homecoming Week!

HEY GUYS!!!! Have you been feeling the MNU Spirit this week?? Cause I have!  This week has been pretty crazy!  Homecoming is just around the corner and the road there was long and obnoxious.  This whole week has been full of events and themes all the way from “Blast from the Past,” where we dress up like a previous decade, on Monday, to “Country Swag,” where we show the whole school how good we look as cowboys and cowgirls, today; from “Twin Day,” where we match someone else, on Tuesday to “Reppin Yo TEAM,” where we wear clothes that rep[…]

The Honeybee Hive.

I am convinced that the kind of people you surround yourself with shape who you become more than anything else in life. In coming to college, I knew that I needed to find a community of people who could not only support and encourage me, but also challenge me through speaking truth into my life. It is beautiful looking back on the past few years and seeing how the Father has taken me on this journey of provision in allowing me to share life with such good, good people. I currently reside in Draper 2 on campus, otherwise known as[…]

The one where we live with ‘brothers.’ (monks)

We just got back from Taize, France on Monday and it was quite an experience. We stayed in a monastic community where we lived in a community of brothers. A brother resembles a monk but just isn’t catholic. They have dedicated their lives to celibacy and to God. Taize is a community that is geared toward youth and they have hundreds and even thousands come to live in the community for a period of time. We had prayer services three times a day. Before breakfast, before lunch, and then after dinner. The prayer services are very unique. Everyone sits on[…]

Chosen

On October 23rd in Community Chapel at College Church there was a group from Africa that belted it out, broke it down with some sweet moves, and definitely praised the Lord. They were called Chosen, and for good reason! They were “chosen” by God to excel at what I am incapable of, to do what I plan to do in that of bringing Christ to those EVERYWHERE, and also remind me of what I forget sometimes. There are two separate things I’d like to focus on in this piece. First, what those amazing kids reminded me of. In one of[…]
