MNU Serve Team

[tabs tab1=”Tab 1 Title” tab2=”Tab 2 Title” tab3=”Tab 3 Title”] [tab]Tab 1 Content[/tab] [tab]Tab 2 Content[/tab] [tab]Tab 3 Content[/tab] [/tabs] Hey friends! This past weekend was a pretty wild weekend for me, a few other MNU students, and a whole bunch of teens!  The youth groups of Grace Community Church of the Nazarene and KC First Church of the Nazarene left Friday evening and came together to have a joint fall retreat in Oklahoma.  And I am still exhausted!  Also a little sick…But it was totally worth it!  We saw God move this weekend and it was awesome! The theme[…]

Living ON Campus vs. Living OFF Campus

Living ON Campus: It has its perks, but it also, has its downsides. Being a freshman, it can be super exciting coming in, fresh out of high school, excited to be on your own and have a roommate. You get to meet new people and make new friendships. You get to experience, what it means, to be a true college kid. On this campus, for both, men and women, there are three styles of dorm living. The first style, is the freshman and sophomore dorms. In them, there are one to two roommates per room. They share a community shower with the rest of the hall. The[…]

Phonathon 2015 Recap

A few days ago, all the Phonathon team gathered in our call center for one last time to celebrate our successful year and say goodbye to the nights of calling alumni while playing hangman with each other and coloring with crayons. My second year of working at Phonathon was very different from my first year. This year, instead of calling for the whole campaign, I coached new callers for the first half. Coaching new callers put me in a kind of supervisory role that I’ve been in before in other situations, but never for Phonathon. It was a really great[…]

5 characteristics of a depressed athlete in off-season

Most of you all know that the women soccer season is over. For me, it is the most depressing time of the year for the following reasons: My team is my family. Since we stopped practicing, I have maybe seen half of the girls in the last week whereas I usually see all of them every day. I miss joking around with them and just hearing everyone complain about how terrible certain classes and professors are. There is no 5-v-2 and making fun of the freshmen who have to be in the middle first. There is no playing around with[…]

Terms You Learn in College

Last week it dawned on me that my vocabulary has recently expanded. Upon coming to college, there are several new terms that I’ve had to learn and use in my every day vocabulary. I wanted to share those with you all in hopes that you don’t have to stare blankly back at those would use them on you in your years to come. Love Language: This is the verbal and nonverbal communication between you and your significant other in which you express how you feel. I’d never heard anyone say this until this year…and now everyone does. The hard part is everyone[…]

It’s My Turn to Be Brave

It’s funny how a song comes into your life at just the right moment. I know that God has a way of doing that, whether it’s a song by a Christian artist, like “This is the Stuff” or “Beautiful, Beautiful” by Francesca Battistelli, or a more secular song, like “Fight Song” by Rachel Platten, if you need to hear a song, God will bring it into your life, and at just the right moment. I have a list a mile long of songs that have impacted me. This list includes “Christian” music, “Secular” music, and of course, show tunes. Right now,[…]

Extra! Extra! Read all about it! I attempt to blog about newspaper!

When I decided to come to MNU, one of the first things I did was grab one of the newspapers from Bell Center when I went to a choir concert. I’m not even sure I read the whole thing, to be honest, but right from the beginning I knew that an element of my life was going to be wrapped up in this paper. At MNU the paper is called The Trailblazer. The print edition comes out roughly three times a semester, and the online version is usually updated every week. Over the summer I met with the advisor, Melinda[…]

10 Times Liz Lemon Embodied The MNU College Experience

Liz Lemon is a pretty strange woman from the hit TV series 30 Rock.  I think that she perfectly and strangely captures the college experience here at MNU.  I am sure that everyone here has experienced at least one of these Liz Lemon moments. When you can’t figure out how to hook up the cable in your dorm room. 2. When you are looking forward to Glow With The Flow at the end of next semester because you know this year is going to wreck you.                            […]

COLLEGE IS NOT MY HOME

College is fun. College is hard. College is independent. College sometimes feels lonely. College is change. But one of the thing I didn’t realize college became for me until recently was home. I was on my annual walk, which is a day I set once a year to go on a walk. I really hate walking hence why I only do it once a year. I rather sit through a weekend long marathon of Pretty Little Liars than to get up and go on a walk. But I digress from my point. I was on my walk through the campus[…]

Happy Places

Last week, I spent my week with some insane people, doing what we love: performing. We have this warm-up where you close your eyes and go to your happy place. It’s all about focus and relaxation. I always close my eyes and think of the stage, because I am happiest when I’m onstage. I know not everyone feels the came way, so I asked the cast where their happy place was, and in unison, they responded, “Brigadoon!”. I knew they weren’t serious, so I waited until we were at dinner after the show and asked, and a majority of the[…]
