Finding Joy in the Ordinary

Simple, yet so difficult. Why does our generation struggle with this concept? We get bored, Desensitized to the beauty of creation to the beauty of our loved ones to the beauty of words and learning. Instead our souls are allowed to be filled with junk. We choose to believe what we hear, to believe what we see, to believe what we are told we need, and in this, we forget the joy of discovery. New places and new ideas, or old places and old ideas. We forget what life is about, What joy is to be found. We become satisfied with[…]

Everything

It seems that every time I shuffle all 1,310 of my songs on my iPod, one particular songs makes it in the top twenty. The song, “Everything,” by Lifehouse is a long song but worth it. I don’t know if any of you already know the song or where it’s famous from, but it is played to a skit on YouTube. I’ve watched this video many times since I was introduced to it. I cry every single time. Lately, I’ve been feeling overwhelmed and down on myself as I mentioned last week. This week was much better thankfully. School is getting tougher, relationships are being challenged, and[…]

Busy Busy Busy

And so begins the busiest month of the semester: In February, there’s a lot going on at MNU, so here’s what you can be excited for: The RA Selection Process Every spring, the interview process to select new RAs begins. Resident Assistants are the liaison between the Residential Life staff, and the residents of the on-campus dorms, so you can imagine a rigorous interview process. RAs are typically the go-to person for any issue with your room, any type of question, or, in some cases, for advice and guidance. These are the people you spend a lot of your time[…]

Hello friends Our two – (three?) week enjoyment of decent weather has come up to an abrupt, yet expected, end.  I rolled over this morning and looked at my weather app to find it was a whopping 4 degrees.  Incredible.  Everyone’s dream Monday morning.  To make it all more satisfying, today is Groundhog Day so the groundhog does it’s thing and has declared 6 more weeks of winter (yay). Oh well.  That is what happens when you live in Kansas, you never really know what you’re going to get.  Exciting yet extremely annoying.  Although, let’s praise God because it has[…]

Judah Smith

Hi y’all. I hope everyone has had a great week so far. To be completely honest, this week hasn’t been the best week for me. Especially the last couple of days. I think some of it has to do with this insanely cold weather. It must be getting me down more than it should. Anywho, I’d like to share with you my one of my favorite pastors of all time. His name is Judah Smith. I was introduced to him last year at the Passion 2015 conference down in Houston, Texas. I’m pretty sure they just had another conference there[…]

Identity Crisis

Hey everyone! This week, I’m going to talk about identity. My personal statement/motto for 2015 is Galatians 1:10: “Am I now trying to get people to think well of me? Or do I want God to think well of me? Am I trying to please people? If I were, I would not be serving Christ.” I have had to learn not to spend time worrying about what others think of me. It’s important to listen to others’ advice, especially close family and friends, but ultimately I live for the Savior, and I’m looking for His approval only. It’s important to[…]

#StopAshton2k15

The past few days, my friend Ashton has had bronchitis, so she’s been taking lots of Nyquil. In case you were wondering, Nyquil doesn’t set well with Ashton. Although it makes her feel better, she often says strange things and doesn’t remember what happened the next morning. Here’s a few tweets and text messages to illustrate the craziness that has been happening on the first floor of Stockton Courtside since this sickness invaded. So, as you can see, it’s been a fun and interesting few days with Ashton in a permanent Nyquil-induced mood. But, in all seriousness, Ashton is an[…]

My Typical Weekday Now…

Well now that I live off campus, I had to adjust to a new schedule. Only have like 3 classes now so I basically have 1 class a day except for Monday. (Still have a night class on Monday, but NO CLASS ON FRIDAY!!!!) Well now on my typical weekday, I get to sleep in (usually waking around 10 or 11 everyday), I go to school around 12 and go to class. But after that is when the real tough part (well not really tough as much as it is frustrating, and awesome) of my day starts. I go home[…]

Being the Best Version of Me

The video pretty much sums everything up, but I wanted to post some fun pictures of my trip I recently took last week to California! I learned that people from California do not like it when people call it Cali and that is how they know if you are from there or not. I still like calling it Cali though, sounds more cool. Anyways, here is some pictures of my trip to San Diego. Who runs the world.. female Student Body Presidents! Some people question if there is a God… if there is not a God, I am not entirely[…]
