2 Things: Pleasure and Play. Both are from the Lord.

Whether it would be watching TV, playing a sport, drawing (for me its more like doodling), getting on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest (I don’t do Pinterest, but I know peeps that do…. dancing, working-out, playing video games-LITERALLY WHATEVER “floats your boat”, there is a time and a place where Pleasure and Play is necessary. Yes I said necessary. God did create the Sabbath as a time of rest. That’s back in Genesis 2:2-3. Jesus Christ even said that the Sabbath was made for man (Mark 2:27). Observing and resting on the Sabbath (originally our Saturday) was done in order that human[…]

SCOUT, My Birthday, And other things this week.

First and foremost, I seriously hope you enjoyed that video! (Things You Just Don’t Hear MNU Students Say.) Shout out to those who created it…cuz it was amazing! (P.S. I watched it like five times the day it aired…) Anyway, on to other news, today is an exciting day because it’s SCOUT!!! SCOUT simply stands for Students Checking Out University Turf. Basically, Juniors, Seniors, and even Freshman or Sophomores, come to campus on a Thursday and Friday. It’s an overnight event where students will get the chance to sleep in the dorms (exciting), attended a few classes of their choosing[…]

Once Upon a Sunday Afternoon

Greetings Bloglings. I’d like to start by giving a shout out to Jordan Warren, member of the Pioneer Class of 2018. He asked the question, “What really goes on when class is out of session?” Answer: MNU PD. …well, maybe not after every class. Hopefully this will paint the picture: One Sunday afternoon, my friend Konner and I got this idea to make a video speculating a day in the life of our very own Campus Safety, with influences from hit TV shows The Office and Reno 911. A trip to Goodwill and a few phone calls later, this video[…]

EPHIPHANY

Hello Friends! So this weekend I had the privilege of going on a retreat called Epiphany, and wow was this amazing! There were about 50 of us from MNU there, and a couple people from other colleges as well! This retreat was about finding our calling, or really, figuring out what our vocation or occupation should be. When this retreat was over, I didn’t really experience an epiphany.. (sigh) but I did gain a lot of clarity about who I am in Christ, and that my vocation right now is to let God work through me to further His kingdom in[…]

Monday Night Football

Greetings Blog World- If you are out of the loop, football in America has been over since the Superbowl (who knew?) ..But that doesn’t mean our Athletic office and football players have been sitting quietly. This semester, about 700 recruited football players, all from California, have transferred in to start morning workouts and practices. Also from California, MNU’s newest Head Football Coach: Brian Willmer! Coach W is the 6th head football coach in the program’s history. He coached at Azusa Pacific University and was an integral part of leading the Cougars to become conference champs in 2013 after just their[…]

BIG Dreams from a BIG God

Hello friends! So… This week was pretty crazy!  It was Spiritual Deepening week, the Olympics were in full swing, and this crazy Kansas weather has been through practically 4 seasons in a week!  With plenty of things to do this week, I had kind of put off thinking about what I was going to write about.  Reflecting back I tried to come up with a common theme of the different events of the week, and one that came to mind was BIG DREAMS. Now if you know me, I am a big dreamer.  I am always dreaming of the future[…]

3 Things That Affect Us All: Death, Taxes, and the Weather.

Regarding Death… here’s a picture taken from inside of a tomb   As for Taxes, I have enjoyed the services of Jackson Hewitt. They have helped me the past 3 years in a row. Via Wal-Mart: And finally, the Weather in Kansas:   Enjoy the weekend Friends! Peace in the Middle East, Drink Water, Know that you are loved; so love others and yourself in return. :

My Not-So-Normal Tuesday

I’m back and ready for action! I can’t even begin to describe how crazy my life has been these last two weeks. SO much has happened in SO little time, and there are not enough seconds to breathe…. But then again, that’s just college: Deadline after, deadline after, deadline–it’s exhausting and it’s a habit I can’t adjust to. Anyway, I thought I’d share one of my days with all of you! Recently, my admission’s job asked me to take a student to the airport, but she wasn’t just any student, she was a future Pioneer. She had been in Kansas[…]

Inductive Application

If you have seen my recent blogs, they are missing a key component of the UNIVERSITY.. Academics! I just wanted to take a smidge of of what I am learning and give you a glance in. This is what Dr. Dean Flemming likes to call an Inductive Study. This is for The Book of Acts class I am currently taking. We are going through the whole book and looking at prescriptive and descriptive texts from scripture. We take this passage and evaluate narrative construction, repetition, key words, really simple things that, when put together, make something beautiful and so applicable. The piece[…]

Church, cheesecake, and coffee shops

Hello friends! :] So this second semester of college can get pretty hectic sometimes! Everyone is thinking about what they’re going to be doing this summer and maybe even for the next school year! I wanted to share with you guys just a few of the different, exciting opportunities that are offered here at MNU and inform you what they are all about! (And take note, these are only a few of the many opportunities that are offered here at MNU!) Personally, I am looking into auditioning for SERVE teams for this summer. If you don’t know what this is, it’s a traveling team[…]
