B E A U T Y

Hello friends Our two – (three?) week enjoyment of decent weather has come up to an abrupt, yet expected, end.  I rolled over this morning and looked at my weather app to find it was a whopping 4 degrees.  Incredible.  Everyone’s dream Monday morning.  To make it all more satisfying, today is Groundhog Day so the groundhog does it’s thing and has declared 6 more weeks of winter (yay). Oh well.  That is what happens when you live in Kansas, you never really know what you’re going to get.  Exciting yet extremely annoying.  Although, let’s praise God because it has[…]

Ten Valuable Things You Learn in College

Hello friends The semester is in officially in full swing– I have four tests next week (gross). But writing is one thing I always look forward to.  I love to write about what is on my heart, what is going on in my life, and what I am learning. So I am writing because I am escaping from my stack of books I have yet to pick up. And today that writing will be about all valuable lessons I have learned in college (yay)! So here it is 10 Valuable Things You Learn in College 1.  There are three valuable[…]

Word of the Year 2015

Hello friends This year is kicking into full swing already, classes at MNU are hitting the gas pedal hard.  I think that gets me easily distracted.  I focus all my attention on finishing this and studying for that– I sometimes  get so caught up and before I realize it it’s April and the end of a semester!  So I choose to be intentional at the beginning of the year.  Our church members (Cross Points Church) every January choose one word as a theme for his or her year.  After prayer and asking, the idea is that the Holy Spirit would[…]

Christmas Break Wrap Up

Hello friends So Christmas break is coming to a close and I definitely have mixed feelings about it.  I am ready to see friends and be back at school… I might not be ready for the “school” part of things.  Anyways I had a great Christmas break and I hope you all did too! Here are some of the highlights: I got to meet our pastor’s new baby!     Mayors Christmas tree! Quality time at grandmas.   Crazy outings in freezing cold weather… Not our smartest plan       Some more quality time with my church’s college small[…]

A Bright Yellow House

Hello friends Well if you are involved or know anyone in the MNU community, you possibly will know of the recent tragedy that has left many people with heavy and burdened hearts.  One of MNU’s dearest went to be with Jesus a couple days ago.  When heartbreak, tragedy, and trials come our way a mix of emotions rise.  There is confusion.  There is hurt.  There is anger.  There is shock.  All of which are logical and acceptable emotions.  In the past I haven’t always thought that my grieving mix of emotions were acceptable to God.  But that is simply not the[…]

Christmas Break To Read List (Finals Week Procrastination)

Hello friends Soooooo hehehesklgkng 🙂 << I don’t know what that was about… I think I am exhausted. Well after that terrible example of writing…. How are you?  How’s it going?  How’s your week?  If I am being completely honest with you, the only reason I am surviving this week is because I know it will all be over soon and it will be Christmas break!  Finals are here, as I am sure all of you are aware.  I mean you either are the student complaining on social media or you know at least one college or high school student[…]

Diary of a College Student

I am a college student, and for that I am thankful.  But it is also a very stressful time.  I mean, I don’t remember a time where I was at a family gathering and wasn’t asked about school or my future career.  When asked about my major, I find an almost whisper and respond, “psychology.”  That single worded response elicits so many questions.  “What do you want to do with that?” “Do you know you have to go to graduate school to be a counselor?” I shake my head quietly every time-o  But secretly I am thinking “do you know[…]

Values: A Challenge for Thanksgiving Break

Hello friends Today I was inspired to write a quick note about a sermon I heard yesterday in church. David Perkins came in and guest spoke for my church’s (Cross Points Church) missions month. This particular sermon really had me thinking and evaluating, so I thought I would share! “Worship is a response to something we value most.” This was a HUGE statement for me.  I value a lot of things.  I love my sports teams, I love my family and friends, I love Netflix (you can see my post from two weeks ago to fully understand), I love to[…]

How To Stay Warm

Hello friends! Sooo it is cold outside.  Literally I am looking at the weather report right now and it says that it feels like 9 degrees outside.  And we all scream and plea “WHYYY” I have never had the urge to skip more classes in my life, not because of the class itself but because of HOW COLD it is! Seriously though, that should be reason enough to cancel classes. Anywho, I thought it would be most convenient of me to provide a semi-sarcastic, semi-realtalk on how to stay warm. 1. Don’t go outside.  Seriously, avoid it at all costs.  Just[…]

Christmastime in Spin 105

Hello friends! So today I have a little video because well…. We decorated for Christmas!  Yes it’s early, yes it’s ridiculous. The way I see it, we only have 2 weeks of school after Thanksgiving and that isn’t near enough time to enjoy it.  So we went all out early. Also there is some randomness at the end that I cannot explain, literally that is Spindle 105 (#spin105). Anyways have a good week and be filled with the Christmas spirit a “bit” early… Thanks for stopping by Haley
