Conference, Concert & a Crazy Week

Hello friends! So it is a Saturday night and I am just getting back from helping out my church with a new conference they call Stained Conference.  AND… It was pretty awesome!  The conference dealt with being Stained with Righteousness specifically with purity and dating relationships.  So just to share some awesome things that God is doing in the Kansas City community I have some awesome pictures and quotes:     Best Quotes: “You gotta decide before you collide”  Amen “Uh oh I can hear Wrecking Ball playing.”  Yup better watch it “The stain of sin comes when you allow[…]

Microblogs, #Hashtags, and the Subtweet Movement

Blog world: Hello from Spindle 304! Let’s talk about Microblogging. Microblog: A type of blog that lets users publish short text updates. Bloggers can usually use a number of service for the updates including instant messaging, e-mail, or Twitter. The posts are called micro posts, while the act of using these services to update your blog is called microblogging. When Twitter was first introduced in 2006, I think the general thought among everyone but the early adopters was, why on earth would anyone be interested in knowing every little thought I have? This was followed by a brief period of[…]

I Don’t Have Homework.. What Do You Want To Do?

Hello friends! So this week happened to be SCOUT.  Basically if you are unfamiliar with this term, this event is a time where high school students get to come see what it is like being at MNU.  They get to spend the night with some current students, attend classes, and get information on the school.  It really is a fun event!  My sister and some of her friends came up from my high school this Thursday night.  We hung out and they asked some questions.  One question that they seemed really curious about (as simple as it was) “Sooo… like,[…]

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[…]

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[…]

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[…]
