Dietrich Bonhoeffer: An Inspiration

#ThrowBAG Thursday

A few weeks ago, I completed an assignment for Public Relations class, in which I was assignment to a group and we had to organize an event for a local non-profit company. We chose Kids TLC, an organization that provides shelter and social services to children and youth who are facing abuse, neglect or family disruption, located right here in Olathe. We planned this event basically the whole semester. We had weekly meetings, contacted various people, gathered a lot donations in order to carry out our event. My group had a little bit of everything, a comedian, a perfectionist, a peacemaker,[…]

The End is (Kind Of) Near

Hey everyone! Every part of our campus is prepping for the end of the academic year. Finals are coming up, and many departments are gearing up for the final haul. I’m getting ready for finals, but also getting ready for Glow with the Flow on Sunday, and for ASG work week after that, and I’m very excited for both of those. Glow with the Flow is ASG’s annual glow party at the end of the year. It involves inflatables, glow sticks, dancing, and food. The event is the hand off event for Social Life on ASG, so as the new[…]

A Week In The Life of Sam Moore

My favorite thing to do when I come home from a long day and have already crawled into bed is to check social media: Instagram, Twitter and Facebook! So, my blog this week I decided to post things from my life in the past week to catch you guys up on what all is happening before I graduate in exactly ONE WEEK… what is life?! I hope you guys enjoyed clips of my week in rewind. I am graduating in a week and it is just absolutely crazy for me to think about. I enjoyed blogging this year and glad[…]

MNU to Drexel, Missouri

This week, I had the privilege of making a video for the Nazarene district highlighting MNU’s time at a church in Drexel, Missouri. Watch this video to find out how MNU became involved, what it has meant for students, and how it’s impacted the community in the church. -KT

The Power of Friendship

Hello friends The school year is coming to an end– so naturally I get all sentimental.  I am so thankful for all that my college experience at MNU has offered me.  Amazing professors, a high quality education, plenty of memories, etc.  I think by far the best thing the LORD and MNU has blessed me with this year are my roommates. If you would have asked me back in high school how I would feel living with five girls I probably would have grimaced at the thought.  However, I have never been surprised by such a big and amazing blessing.[…]

Cracking Down

Hi! As we begin to wrap up the school year, I don’t know about anyone else, but my stress meter has exploded. I just finished a 1500 word paper, which, that sounds really bad, but I actually quite enjoyed it! It just took too much time. Lately my mind has been everywhere in attempts to process everything that’s going on all at once. I feel like I’m trying to relive the past school year in hopes to make sure they’re real. If that makes sense. Being a sensitive person, the end to this school year has really got me on[…]

Signs You Go To MNU

1. You have campus wide library board game nights. You know it’s a bumpin’ Friday night when the students at MNU gather in the library to play some board games and have a terrific time. I’ve never been, but I hear it gets pretty crazy. 2. You pay $15 for a campus flower. If Campus Security catches you picking a flower for your significant other, expect to pay at least a $15 fine for that quality tulip. They should probably just open up a floral shop on campus. 3. Saying “I’ll pray about it and let you know” could very[…]

A Challenge from a Counseling Psychology Theory

Hello friends So currently I am taking a Fundamentals of Counseling course for my major.  It is very interesting to learn about the different theories on how to help people.  People of all different types, with all different challenges, that need help getting through the day to day. One type we have been talking about is called positive psychology.  Now this is definitely not my favorite theory out there, I think sometimes we have to go deeper into some of the issues, but the basics of thankfulness and appreciation can make major improvements in daily life.  This theory focuses on[…]

NSLC Last Week!

Hey y’all! The 2015/2016 ASG Exec Council got back from NSLC on Sunday evening around 7pm, and we had such a blast! For those of you who didn’t read the last blog, NSLC is an event put on the by the higher education institutions of the USA/Canada region of the Church of the Nazarene. This year was the 50th anniversary of NSLC, so it was held at NSLC’s birthplace, MNU’s sister schools, Olivet Nazarene University.  At the event, we meet with other student governments from the eight other Nazarene liberal arts Universities and Colleges in the USA/Canada region.  We got[…]

Dietrich Bonhoeffer: An Inspiration

Today marks the 70th anniversary of the death of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a theologian, German Lutheran pastor, and founding member of the Confessing Church. You know the classic question, “If you could have coffee with anyone, alive or dead, who would it be?” Well, my first choice would be Jesus… and my second choice would be Dietrich Bonhoeffer. His life inspires me. I could study his writings for hours and hours on end. I could sit here and tell you about his life and try to do it justice with my own words, but I think his writings are inspiring enough[…]
