8 Memories To Never Forget

Sick, Sicker, Homesick

Hello friends, Have you ever felt really home-sick? I have! I actually miss home all the time: I miss my family, I miss my friends, and – most important – I miss home cooked meals!!! I believe, every college student experiences homesickness, and there is nothing bad about it, unless you let it take over you: bad grades, being unsocial, perform badly in sports, etc. The trick is to know what to do when you feel overwhelmed by the desire to go home. Especially for students who live further away, it is a challenge. If you fly here, you probably[…]

Night of Worship and Prayer Round One

Last night, October 4th, about fifty MNU students walked in the cold to the Harvest Prayer statue in the middle of campus and found a team of about fifteen people who were in way over their heads and praying their heart out for God’s will to be done because their human ability was just not enough. Before I tell the story of last night and the incredible things God did, let me just say hello! My name is Renée DeVault, I am a freshmen Bible and Theology/Communications major at MidAmerica Nazarene University and I am having the time of my life[…]

Impact World

Hey friends! I’m sure a lot of you have heard of YWAM by now.  They are an international Christian organization who’s sole purpose is to bring as many youth to Christ as they possibly can.  They have gone all over the world to places like India, the Philippines, England and even Delaware.  But the last two nights, they were in my hometown of Spring Hill, Kansas. The local churches have been preparing for YWAM for months.  The churches have spent countless hours praying, organizing teams, preparing food for the Impact teams, and setting up the stages.  Honestly, I am relieved[…]

SIX SIGNS THAT YOU’RE NOW IN COLLEGE

[social icon=”twitter” url=”http://twitter.com” title=”Follow Us”][/social] 1. When there’s not enough hours in one day. If you don’t feel like you have time for yourself, others, or even everyone’s favorite friend Netflix; relax friend, you are not alone. There is a gravitational pull drawing us in all sorts of directions. From waking up for classes to then trying to squeeze lunch in between back to back classes. I know you’re probably wondering if it gets better. I think the busyness teaches us that we must either manage our time or our time will manage us. My advice would be to understand[…]

#TBT Welcome Week

The semester starts and you have a combination of confused freshmen and upperclassmen who are just ready to be finished with school already, but there is one week full of events that everyone enjoys: Welcome Week! So whether it’s White Light or Paint Wars that grabs your attention, something is ALWAYS appealing about the first week of school. But, for some of us, the first week of school isn’t about the ASG events. While they’re super fun and I always look forward to going, it’s the auditions for the fall play/musical that gets me going every year. This year is[…]

5 Things You Should Probably Know About Me

Hey friends! I’m excited to say that I’m blogging for MNU again this year. Last year was a blast and I’m so thankful to be able to do this for another year. With that being said, in case you didn’t tune in to MNU blogs last year, I’m going to re-introduce myself… here’s 5 things you should probably know about me. 🙂 1. I’m building a relationship with Jesus Christ. I could’ve said “I love Jesus,” and that would’ve been accurate, but that doesn’t say much about my faith journey. I say that I’m building a relationship because that’s exactly[…]

#SupportNepal

When I was in 3rd grade, Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans and left an estimated 1,800 people dead and many more injured, homeless, and hopeless. Being a child, I couldn’t comprehend exactly what had happened, but I knew one thing. That the people affected needed help. They needed hope. I don’t know why Hurricane Katrina affected me so much as a 3rd grader, but it did. After hearing about the immensity of the devastation, I decided that I wanted to help as much as I could. I gathered up some lemonade mix from my pantry, propped up a table at[…]

8 Memories To Never Forget

These are 8 memories that I hope to never forget. Freshman year was a blast, and although I’m glad it’s summer, I’m gonna miss the Stockton dorm life! Shoutout to all these amazing people who made fun memories with me. 1. White Light Event This event was not only the one that broke the ice with me and my hall mates, but also where I officially met one of my best friends at MNU… Hannah Bostic. I saw her standing alone by the bleachers, went up to her and said “Let’s be friends,” and the rest is history. 2. Phonathon[…]
