The Year of 2013. HERE WE GO.

Almost There

I just cannot quite believe that the semester is soon coming to a close. Here we are with two and a half weeks of classes left–there is a light at the end of the tunnel! This is about the time of the year when it seems like everyone’s running around like chickens with their heads cut off. I must say my mind is feeling a bit scatterbrained trying to keep up with everything, so I apologize if this post is just absolutely random. The biggest news I have to share is that I unexpectedly won $250 this past week! Our library[…]

the Real, the Beautiful

This past week I received the extremely exciting news that I have officially been accepted as an intern at The Keeler’s Women Center for this upcoming summer! The past couple months have been spent in prayer asking the Lord to offer direction and guidance in my search for an internship, and I am so excited and relieved that He has provided such an amazing opporunity. The Keeler Women’s Center, located in downtown Kansas City, seeks to wholistically serve women in the urban core of KC in which they provide a number of different services and programs to do so. Some of[…]

I PASSED!!!!

I’m sorry I’m so late in the game in updating you guys on what’s been going on lately! This last week has been absolutely CRAZY. Technically I am Junior in my undergrad but since I’m graduating a semester early, this past week I HAD TO TAKE THE SENIOR COMP. For those of you who are unaware, the Senior Comp is an exam you have to take your senior year which is basically a cumulative final for all of the classes you’ve taken during your four years that are in your major. I found out about this exam right before spring break,[…]

SPRING to the BREAK

As much as I would have loved to have gone on some sort of trip or traveled somewhere during the break, I am so thankful to have had some time to just relax and start hacking away at THE LIST (the never-ending task list of wedding details, school papers and projects, internships details…and on it goes). My fiance and I finally registered for our wedding which proved to be an all-day event. Let me tell you, bedbath&beyond is INTENSE. That place is packed to the brim from floor to ceiling, no joke. It was such a blast creating our wish list together, scanning[…]

Academia.

I’m at this point in the semester where all the homework and craziness is getting the best of me. This past semester I had some upper division elective spots to fill and, since being a Sociology major and Psychology minor, I thought it’d be good to take some classes from the one remaining behavioral science major–Criminal Justice. Now, having taken no Criminal Justice classes prior to this semester, I of course thought it  best to jump into a senior-level course focusing on the most debated and controversial issues within Criminal Justice. NBD. Piece of cake. Needless to say, the confidence has waned a bit since then. This[…]

For the Ladies.

Of all the places one would expect to find inspiration or an encouraging word, I believe the restroom would perhaps be the last place. However, this one cheesy 90’s poster in a ladies restroom on campus reminded me of a conversation that I had this past week with a woman that works with me at the Learning Center, which is a daycare program on campus. This vibrant, 67-year-old lady who has worked with children for years has spent most of her adult life as a pastor’s wife. This role of supporting her husband in ministry had often brought along pressures and expectations in which she[…]

Mosaic

There are many times where the Lord provides a calling for someone in allowing them to meet some sort of need. This last summer, my fiance, who is a youth and worship pastor at a local church, was made aware of a need within our church community. Many people within the 18-30 age range (the Mosaic Generation) were desperately in need of community and were struggling finding it on their own. After numerous discussions with various people including the church staff, my fiance decided to take on the committment of launching a young adult ministry. Towards the beginning of last semester a team of about[…]

The Year of 2013. HERE WE GO.

So far this year of 2013 has already been a whirlwind. One month of the twelve is already coming to a close and it feels like I was just making new years resolutions yesterday. My mind is blown thinking about all the change that will come to be within this following year, its unbelievable. Here’s the new that’s been in this girl’s life. Last week, two of my dearest friends moved half-way across the world, one to study at a film school in Scotland and the other to study ceramics in Wales. Needless to say, I have been stalking there Instas and[…]
