Spring Break 2015!

So uh…. I’m not going to lie. I HAD AN AWESOME SPRING BREAK!!!! I mean sure I really didn’t go anywhere special or don’t anything really amazing. To be honest with you it was really just boring by spring break standards, but I can say for sure that I rediscovered my youth. As you can tell from the big picture above the blog, I got really close to my inner child this past week. While actually doing a homework assignment for a class, I went into a crazy Hey Arnold binge and it was glorious. It should be expected and[…]

The Hunting Ground

Hello friends So today I wanted to write something that is very close to my heart.  I recently started to work with an organization that does advocacy for victims of sexual assault and rape.  One of their main purposes is to also educate the community about assault and rape.  Some are quick to conclude that education is not needed, “everyone knows what rape is.”  However, there are some major misconceptions within our society.  A majority of our population when hearing the word “rape” automatically pictures a stranger in a dark alley.  This is what we call “real rape”  because our[…]

Spring Break Forever

Okay, spring break was amazing. Last Thursday, the squad (Ana, Rico, Annie and I), flew to Florida.  We had an awesome time, and unfortunately, we get to go back to school tomorrow. Yay 8AMs. These photos are just a taste of the fun we had there, from the beach to the awesome food and different restaurants we visited, we made some great memories. Watching sunsets on the water, visiting the Botanical Gardens, and even having an allergic reaction to jerk chicken were even better with these awesome people.

Divide, CO ~ 2.0

Hello again! After the trip to Colorado, it has been nice to relax for a bit before starting back up in school. We worked incredibly hard both days of work. We specifically focused on improving parts of Golden Bell Camp. The first day we got to tear down parts of walls, clear out an old storage room, paint the game room black (it’s going to look like a mine!), and the group I was in painted some more in a staff house after lunch. We worked about 7-8 hour days which honestly wasn’t too bad. Once I started working, I didn’t want to[…]

Divide, CO

Hi y’all! Like I said last week I’m currently in Colorado!!! Yes, that means the beautiful mountains. I can see Pike’s Peak from the window. We left yesterday morning and 9 hours later arrived at our destination! It’s absolutely marvelous out here and I’m excited to share so many pictures. We haven’t started our mission work yet, so we’ve been enjoying a little vaca/tour time before working tomorrow. Next week I’ll post specifically on the mission work and how God is moving here at Golden Bell, but this is a fun-picture post. I hope you enjoy the photos! 🙂 Breckenrigde,[…]

“The God Who Sees Me”

Hello friends I spoke in class chapel last week and a lot of people had asked that I share what I talked about.  So if you didn’t get to hear it, here you go!  This has something that has been on my heart the last several weeks and I am glad it spoke to so many: I don’t like to ask for help. I will try to find places on my own first before looking it up on my GPS. I never asked my parents or teachers for help in school. I think there is a part of me that[…]

When You Don’t Get What You Want

This week, I found out that I did not get hired as a Resident Assistant for next year. When I was notified, I was shocked, disappointed, confused, and honestly heartbroken. Those are a strange variety of emotions to feel all at once, so let me explain what led to those emotions stirring up in me. Toward the beginning of the school year, I thought for sure that I wanted to be an RA. I already knew some of the RAs before I started going to MNU, so they told me a little bit about it and recommended that I apply.[…]

Do you even lift bro?

You know one of the best things about MNU is meeting new people and hearing the stories that brought them to MNU & how MNU has changed them. Well this story is one of my favorites. Ladies and gentlemen meet Janelle Schafer. I call her Ms. J. Ms. J is from Centennial, Colorado. She is also one of the strongest people you will ever meet, both physically and mentally. It would just take too long to describe Ms. J to you and I do not wanna set the record for the longest MNU Blog ever. The best things about Ms.[…]

Faculty and Staff Appreciation Week

This week is Faculty and Staff Appreciation Week at MNU, so I thought I’d take a few moments to give some shout-outs to a few faculty/staff members that have made a personal impact on my freshman year so far. 1. Laura Hahn Laura is amazing for too many reasons to list. To name a few, she’s selfless, encouraging, genuine, and really stinkin’ cares about the residents on campus. She goes out of her way to serve others on a daily basis, which is something I look up to a lot. She is also hilarious and easy going… it’s good to[…]
