Thas’ why we Friends!

This is the Thanksgiving Break edition of the “Thas why we Friends” series here on my blog. I set out to make a creative and funny, yet informative video with my friends. A parody, a funny high school story, or maybe try to gauge the impact that college has. Instead, this is what I got….. Thanks Katie and Amber, nothing changes.  Keep on and keep God, Joey

What Are You Thankful For?

This thanksgiving break is going to be epic! Haha, just kidding! Well, hey, It might be epic…Possibly…Like maybe if I wish on a shooting star and find fairy dust in a secret forest somewhere. Regardless of the stars in the sky, and Tinker Bell’s leftovers, my Thanksgiving break will consist of three things: Food, my laptop, and Netflix. Of course, between my food breaks, the overheating of my laptop, and stretching time between episodes of Scandal, I’ll have plenty of time to praise God for every graceful thing in my life. What are you thankful for this year? When I[…]

I’ve been learning lately…

Hello Blog world. :] This week’s blog is going to be a little different from what I usually do. God has definitely taught me some stuff that I would like to share with you guys. Something pretty exciting happened to me this weekend! It may not seem like a huge deal to some, but I had the chance to lead worship on Sunday morning for a church in Basehor, Kansas! This was actually the first time I have ever gotten to decide who was on the team, select the songs, and lead each of the songs that we played. Not that leading worship at[…]

It’s the Holiday Season… So Let’s Be Thankful!

Hello friends! It’s another great day to write a blog and share with you my thoughts!  The past few weeks I have been thinking a lot about thankfulness.  It makes sense considering we are approaching Thanksgiving (which by the way is my favorite holiday!). I was listening to a sermon at my church a few weeks ago about this idea of thankfulness.  It’s funny how often we use words on a regular basis, but never really dive down deep and figure out what they really mean.  My pastor talked about the difference between gratitude and thankfulness, thankfulness being something more[…]

MNU Vball beat Baker! Catching Fire was pretty leegit & Jamie Furnas You’re Amazing

So last week you got to see our MNU Soccer team’s video, here’s our Volleyball team’s video: Now’s here are the highlights from the HAAC tournament Final versus Baker: If you see in the first few seconds I guy with curly hair and dancing with crazy legs, that’s Luke Letsinger one of our Student Chaplains. Then to the side am I with my friend Nathan in red pants and a beanie: I forgot to mention that Wednesday at Kairos (the Wednesday evening chapel for college students at College Church of the Nazarene) we helped package about 160 Thanksgiving meals-made possible by the[…]

This Could Be YOUR RA.

At MNU, and in most college dormitories, there is an Residential Assistant, or RA, assigned to a every hall. I’d like to think that the RA’s at MNU have a special kick to them, and that they give off a sense of home–in fact, I know that there is something different about the RA’s at MNU because I interviewed one, and I know that having someone who makes you feel like you “belong“, while you’re in a strange new place, can make the world that much better. So let me introduce you to Terrin Garber: –Where are you from? Carthage[…]

Chuck-E-Cheese, horses, and Ice Skating

Hey friends! This weekend my roommate Amanda and I had the chance to take two of the cutest little boys on a date….. to Chuck-E-Cheese! As you guys have heard for the 50th time now, this whole week was TWIRP week (The Woman Is Required To Pay)! Amanda and I were pretty surprised that no one had TWIRPed the cutest boys on campus yet, so we decided to jump right in and do it ourselves. These two boys are Shelly Cotton, our RE (Resident Educator)’s boys! And they are adorable! Here below is a video of us TWIRPing the boys!  Camden is the one[…]

Tis the Season

(Please enjoy the sweet sounds of Sleeping At Last while reading this post) Attention Blog World: You may have been misled by our blogfeed as of this week. You may think based on the title of this post that the current season is that of TWIRP, which as you have probably figured out by now stands for MNU’s annual tradition: The Woman Is Required To Pay. While I did not TWIRP anyone, (see my post about dating,) I’m here to introduce a new topic to our faithful 6 readers out there. The holidays are upon us! It’s official. Thanksgiving is[…]

Social Media: What Is It Really?

I was sitting in my Sociology class a couple days ago when MNU’s beloved professor, Bo Cassell, brought up an interesting point.  Why do we have social media? What is the point of it in today’s society? Why is it so valued? How has it affected our culture today? We discussed our theories. But what stuck out in my mind was Professor Cassell’s statement, “Now days, we do things in life so we can post about it.” MIND BLOWN. This got me thinking, what would our lives be without social media?  Think about it.  We go to a party, and[…]

Here’s a Snippet of this Friday Night.

Here’s a video of some of the players from our stellar Men’s Soccer team. Here’s Jor-El jumping off that four-winged creature back at Krypton! In other non-related news, here are three things that are on my Amazon Wish list…. Which is also the same thing as my Christmas gift wish list…. Hint Hint to anyone willing…:)
