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.

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[…]

I’m Snow Fed Up

Kansas: Good ol’ Home on the Range Given statehood on January 29th, 1861 The Sunflower State Birthplace to Barry Sanders and Bob Dole Known for unpredictable and ridiculous weather trends. And the current home to a HORRENDOUS WHITE SUBSTANCE THAT FELL FROM THE SKY. I think we all know I’m referring to snow. Please allow the next few lines of letters formed into words to be a venting session. Now, I know I know, BAHUMBUG. BUT, I like the snow…..for about 15 minutes. Then it can melt. February 3rd, 4th, and 5th brought forth a ridiculous amount of snowfall. This[…]

6 Things I Wish I Knew In High School

Hello friends! Happy Valentines Day to all you blog readers out there.  Whether your single or your in a relationship, I truly hope you feel the love of the Lord today! Now with all that out of the way, I can begin with what I have been wanting to talk about. Last weekend I went to my high school’s homecoming basketball game.  All I can really say is that it was very strange being back.  I mean so much has changed.  This brought back memories of my high school days (yes I am aware it has only been a year),[…]

Snow Day Shenanigans

Hello friends! Well it is that time of the week again… time for a new blog! This week has been rather crazy.  I mean we only had 3 days of classes due to snow! The great thing about college snow days is.. You are in college! So you are stuck on campus with all of your best friends!  They even extended open dorm times (guys in the girls dorms/ girls in the guys dorms) so of course that is always nice! There is something so sweet about a snow day… Just the feeling the night before, “I don’t have to[…]

Come Clean

Okay blogging friends. If you tuned in last week, you probably have a very skeptical view of my buddy Stephen. Normally with friends like Steve, I would just allow you to keep on believing that he is the man that will never trust a fart again. But now I’m feeling guilty because some of the information was fabricated. tainted. false. So it’s time for me to come clean. (enjoy the sweet sounds of Eisley while reading.) I’m reposting the story here. Follow my commentary (of my own story) to find out what actually happened on that Tuesday afternoon.   One[…]

How to: Thrive as a Pioneer

This one goes out to all my high school peeps who are looking into MidAmerica! College is a nerve-racking thought/experience; don’t get too ahead of yourself.  It’s not as scary as TV says! This place will become your home.  Here are 5 specific pieces of advice to thrive as a Pioneer: 1) Seconds are okay…sometimesWe’ll start off easy.

In all seriousness, get ready for an overload.. O and don’t forget SPICY[…]
