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[…]

It’s Springtime: Life Update

Hello friends I have barely made it through my first day back from Easter break.  The fact that I barely made it through today is kind of sad because I haven’t had a full week of school since spring break.  Anyways, let me just say my brain is fried and I am ready for summer-which is actually in just a few short weeks (MNU perks). Just a few quick life updates: 1. I got a summer internship! This has been by far the most exciting thing in my life the last months or so. I will be working with an[…]

NSLC This Week!

Hey everyone! This week, I’m preparing to go to Nazarene Student Leadership Conference, or NSLC. We leave tomorrow, at 6am, and head from here to Bourbonnais, IL to Olivet Nazarene University, who are hosting the event this year. The schedule involves group sessions focused on leadership, as well as sessions in which we share ideas and information with our counterparts at other Nazarene universities. For instance, I’ll be meeting with the other Directors of Social Life from the other schools. There are other events, like a dodgeball tournament, and spirit events that we’ll be participating in as well, not to[…]

What Easter Means to Me

Hi y’all. To wrap up Easter weekend, I’m going to share how mine went! It was crazy busy as always. On Friday night, my roommate and I went back to my home town for an annual play at my home church. I was in it until I was 17 and the rest of my family is still in it, so naturally I had to go see them! The Passion Play is a big hit and I couldn’t miss it, even though it meant two trips home in one weekend. The play is the life, death, and resurrection of Christ highlighting[…]

Instagram-aholic

So, if you know me at all, you know that I love social media. I love the idea that I can keep in touch with people and see what is happening in people’s lives even when I don’t have time to constantly reach out to them personally. It’s a pretty neat-o thing. My favorite form of social media is Instagram, because, “a picture is worth a thousand words.” It really is a hobby of mine. I’ve been pretty busy this week, so I haven’t had a lot of time to think about a blogging topic. I thought I’d post photos[…]

The Track Season is Underway!!!

Well the track season is here and the HCA (Heritage Christian Academy, in case you didn’t know) Track & Field Team has been working hard getting ready for the upcoming season. We have about 40 kids running track this year and in the few weeks I have been able to work with them, I’ve seen amazing growth and last Thursday we had our first meet… The Sherwood Invitational which was in Creighton, Missouri and there were 6 other schools competing with us as well. You know what… I just realized that I haven’t even  told you guys anything about these[…]
