Tis the Seasons

They say a lot can change in a short amount of time when it comes to Kansas weather. Having lived here for all 19.2 years of my life I can attest to this being the truth. However, the past 3 days have BLOWN MY MIND. 2 days ago the weather was around 66, beautifully sunny, and all around glorious! I wore shorts to class, ran back from the gym, and didn’t wear a jacket to work. Yesterday started out nice, I mean, I LOVE the rain! Then it started to get REAL cold while still raining, NO THANKS. Then I[…]

The Journey that is Paving the Rest

It’s hard to believe that barely over a month ago God opened the door of possibility for myself to join 9 amazing people on a journey to change the lives of many Haitian people in Cascade Pichon. Little did I know, none of us would come back the same. Here is the video that started it all! Faith that Moves Mountains The response to this video was out of this world and exceeded EVERY expectation. The power of God was proven without a doubt. His glory shone through the people He has placed around me. You could tell that they[…]

The Atypical Typical Finals Post

  My final in New Testament is gonna be a killer! 8 page study guide, over 200 questions to prepare for, and it’s early on Friday morning. OUCH! But that’s okay, the class was very informative, evaluating Professor Flemming’s clothing choices with a fellow classmate through Twitter everyday was fun, and the jokes of Dr. Dean were very…. humorous. I appreciate the class and the ability it presented to grow in walking with Christ. Taking a break from that subject, another break taken was at the Procrastination Party. This event was for students to say, “Studying, schmudying!” and say, “HELLO!”[…]

That’s Why We’re Friends!

This, ladies and gentlemen, is the first installment of a revolutionary idea called “That’s Why We’re Friends.” This will be an inside look of, what I feel, defines MNU: Community. I am a Freshman in Lanpher. Without going into too much graphic detail, let’s just say it can get CRAZY! I mean come on, we’re dudes from all over the place, living under one roof, what’d you expect? The picture above is my room which I share with my DAWG Josh Woodward. Josh looks like the complete opposite of me, but only until you put us in the same room[…]

Breathe….

I know life is crazy for me! Ups, downs, and every other possible direction! Sometimes, you just have to sit back and take in what God has to offer. When life gets busy and school gets psychotic, and everything becomes a blur, just remember to BREATHE. I mean look at the top picture, how does that not create awe? Everything is perfectly designed by God, in this picture and within us. Make time for Him and find Him in every facet of life! You just have to empty your hands so He can fill them. Even when you do this,[…]

What’s Your Puzzle Piece?

Connecting with God. How do you define it? Some say quiet time, talking with others, finding Him in the word. These are ALL useful and creative puzzle pieces of discerning God’s voice, but some are more effective than others for different people. If you are more extroverted then quite time, though still necessary, is a  more evasive device and talking with others is more preferred. This would be likely reversed for introverts. However you spin it, these are all, I would say necessary, forms of worshiping God. This weekend I had the opportunity to travel with my fellow improvisational teammates […]

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[…]

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[…]

Passion, Purpose, Pumpkin

On October 13, 2012 at 8am, in the cool, about to rain, Kansas weather a race was run. I was about to embark on a journey with one of my best friends and encouragements Mike Reynolds. Music prevalent was over the surrounding chattering crowd. Numerous shouts of encouragement being thrown out and an all around joyous time being had. All this somehow associated with one of the most massive sorrowful events that any family could experience. It was in honor of an amazing family, and I have never met them. The story, the fight, the loss, but the purpose triumphs.[…]
