Values: A Challenge for Thanksgiving Break

Hello friends Today I was inspired to write a quick note about a sermon I heard yesterday in church. David Perkins came in and guest spoke for my church’s (Cross Points Church) missions month. This particular sermon really had me thinking and evaluating, so I thought I would share! “Worship is a response to something we value most.” This was a HUGE statement for me.  I value a lot of things.  I love my sports teams, I love my family and friends, I love Netflix (you can see my post from two weeks ago to fully understand), I love to[…]

Nice to see you again! So I was at work the other day on campus and I was full of Christmas Spirit. It seems like Christmas is all I can think about right now. Yeah yeah, I know, it’s not even Thanksgiving yet, but for me Christmas started as soon as Halloween was over. So I was listening to Michael Buble Holiday on Pandora and had a wild idea! Neighborhoods are starting to put up their Christmas lights so naturally there are going to be amazing displays around Olathe. I know I’m going with some friends and I hope you guys[…]

An MNU/KC/Santa Ricky Christmas

Hey all! It’s nearly Thanksgiving, and to me, that means it’s basically Christmas! To prepare for this Christmas in Kansas City, I’ve already purchased my Santa Hat, and my friends and I have christened my friend Rico McKay and “Santa Ricky.” (He even has his own parody twitter account, @RealSantaRicky) So, for this blog, I’m going to analyze the Kansas City Christmas Experience, with photos of Santa Ricky and his merry pals peppered in. Every Kansas City Christmas experience must include several trips to see the plaza lights, including the night of Thanksgiving, when the lights that adorn the Country[…]

How To Stay Warm

Hello friends! Sooo it is cold outside.  Literally I am looking at the weather report right now and it says that it feels like 9 degrees outside.  And we all scream and plea “WHYYY” I have never had the urge to skip more classes in my life, not because of the class itself but because of HOW COLD it is! Seriously though, that should be reason enough to cancel classes. Anywho, I thought it would be most convenient of me to provide a semi-sarcastic, semi-realtalk on how to stay warm. 1. Don’t go outside.  Seriously, avoid it at all costs.  Just[…]

Iowa Bound

Hi guys!! I hope you have had the best week! 🙂 I’m going to share an amazing story about a trip to Iowa on Saturday. Yes, we went there and back in one day. A group of students from my ministry class left campus yesterday around noon and headed to Iowa City Church of the Nazarene. This is the home church of two of our students. The drive was about 5-6 hours on the way there and surprisingly enough, it was snowing like crazy up there! Fun fact about me: I do not do snow. I hate snow. If it’s snowing, Santa better be coming to town. I’m just not[…]

Playlists and People

What’s up everybody? Hope everyone had a great week! So tonight I went to a Hunter Hayes concert, and it was SO good. The Railers and Dan+Shay opened for him, and they were both fantastic, even though I had never heard of The Railers before. I know these three don’t fit some people’s definition of country music (it obv has to have something about cars and an unintelligible accent duh) but they were about as country as it typically gets for me. See, I don’t really get to deep into any genre of music, I just like a little of[…]

A Very Special Veteran’s Day

As you all know Tuesday was Veteran’s Day and now matter how you feel about the military, you just have to sit back and admire the sacrifices that they endure everyday to keep us safe, and help us enjoy the freedoms we have today. Just like Coach Willmer told us the other day, “Our freedom isn’t free, somebody else pays for it.” This day is now very special to me, you never really realize how important something is until it hits you personally. For me, this day is about my friend Cory Ellis and his family. It takes a special[…]
