Passion in Pictures

Pictures capture a moment in time. A spot in history that can never be truly replicated. Snapping the obnoxious laughter from a more-corny-than-actually-humorous joke or catching the relief of a runner crossing the finish line is a fulfilling feeling. But it’s not fulfilling simply because the picture isn’t blurry. It’s fulfilling because there’s a story behind the picture. This story can impact the way you live because it molds the way you view life, people, and individual moments. Maybe it’s obvious and maybe it’s up to interpretation. For example, the corny joke is from a blooming friendship that is an[…]

Mourning the Death of a Relationship: A word for the hurting, the healing, and the hating

Breaking up is hard to do. I can’t take credit for that wisdom, but in my experience, it is true. When a relationship ends, it’s almost as if a whole person dies. When 2 people come together and form a dating relationship, the dynamic of the couple is like a 3rd friend. When that time is over, it’s like the third friend has left on bad terms, or even died but no one wants to acknowledge it. It affects everyone around, even those who weren’t involved. The two newly single people can catch a glimpse of each other from across[…]

A Mummy Like You

Blog world! In the spirit of Halloween, I have written a short story for you to enjoy! Remember, be safe this Halloween! Till Next time, Love, Britney A Mummy Like You- By Britney Lewis   I grabbed my jacket, brushed my brown hair into a ponytail, and climbed out my bedroom window in hopes to avoid confrontation with my parents. I was on my way to Whisper Creek’s hill in anticipation to see Caesarion’s spirit at midnight in the mausoleum. Caesarion was the son of Cleopatra VII and Julius Caesar. When he was seventeen, he was murdered by the current[…]

His name is Daniel. and yes, you’re right, he IS balancing on top of a metal bar in our laundry room, or as the door tells us, the “Launders.” Maybe I should explain why this was happening. A couple of girls in our[…]

Looking Back In Time… 50 Years From Now

Hello friends! Earlier today I was at lunch with my grandma, mom, and sister.  We just shared and talked about things here and there, when my grandma mentioned her 50th college reunion she had attended last night… 50th? My grandma was in my stage of life over 50 years ago! She even said, “There were so many old people!”  My grandma, definitely young at heart, is someone I have looked up to my whole life.  She is bold and carries the joy of the Lord wherever she goes. After going home, I wondered what my life would be like after[…]

Here’s to one of my favorite peeps and my favorite season at MNU: Randy Cloud and Autumn

The following pics of trees and their leaves may not be interesting to those of y’all who are familiar with the Midwestern Fall seasons, if that’s the case with you, good for you that you got to live and experience such beauty for so long!!         Now some of you may be thinking, “This guy is just another typical California tree hugger…” Well… for the record I have never hugged a tree. But I am proud to say that I recycle paper!! Genesis 1:29-30, God had Adam and Eve take care of the earth with all its[…]

How bout’ them Chiefs?

I am a recently-turned 20 year old who has in the past few years taken a genuine interest in sports on a deeper level. As I came into my own in this sense I already had some teams that interested me. One of them was the good ol’ Kansas City Chiefs. This interest was definitely an inherited passion. My recollection is of my brother Brandon’s influence impacting me. In the time I have earnestly followed the team it has been a less than enjoyable experience. I would say that we have had quite a bit of talent, especially last year,[…]

Relationship Advice From an Unlikely Source

  My dear friends of MNU Blogs, It seems like among high school and college aged students, relationships are the hot topic. I don’t know about you readers out there, but at least 75% of my conversations are about finding “the one” or dating or “talking” or something of the matter. This week alone I’ve had about 7 conversations about dating and relationships and it’s only Tuesday. I find myself pondering the question: Why are these people coming to me? I’m not qualified to answer their questions and here are some of the reasons why I’m probably the worst person[…]

So you wanna teach in a small town, eh?

As an English education Major…as an education major, period, there are a lot of options to choose from when it comes to where you want to teach. I like to divide them into a few categories: suburban, rural, inner-city, and top-notch schools (which can be found in either of the other categories.) Growing up in the inner-city, I’ve always felt it was my calling to return back home when it was my time to teach. I’ve consistently felt the urge to give back to my community, to show those students love who don’t always receive it at home, and to[…]

A Warm Welcome Back

Hey friends! So midterms have come and gone and this weekend we finally got a break! So I decided to take a trip back home! It was really nice to finally see my family and friends after a few weeks.
