Be: A Spring Breaker!

EVERY WEEK SHOULD BE SPRING BREAK. Let me tell you why every week should be Spring Break by giving you a low down on what I am doing this week! Things Sam is doing this week: Sleeping MNU baseball Sleeping Eating endless amounts of popcorn Sleeping Bonfires Netflix—Gossip Girl Napping OKLAHOMA for a weekend! And Sleeping Spring break it all about sleeping, resting and napping. What more could a college student want from a Spring break? While all my friends are out of town I will be spending this week watching MNU Baseball play, Netflix and sleeping as much as[…]

“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[…]

Moments Like This

Hello all! With Spring Break approaching quickly, I’ve been cramming to get everything done. Last week, I had a midterm on Thursday, and 2 tests and a paper due on Friday. I was up pretty late on Wednesday and Thursday to say the least. Lately I’ve been deep in thought with life. Life is so full of great moments. As cliché as that sounds, it is cliché because that’s just how I roll. This semester as flown by and I can’t even begin to describe how blurry everything seems. I don’t even remember what I had for lunch yesterday! After awhile, the days really do start[…]

After Awakening

Hey everyone! So, last time, I wrote about an event we were putting on called Awakening. I figured I would write a follow up entry about how the event went. After set up with the band, the grillers and the other ASG Class Council members, people started to arrive. I was pretty nervous that there would be barely any people there, but we actually had far more than any of us expected. Of course it’s not all about the numbers when it comes to a worship event, but it was a huge encouragement to see so many people there. After[…]

#MNUSLR

Two weekends ago, some students from MNU went on a Spiritual Life Retreat, where Dr. Fine spoke about having a spirit of faith. It really impacted my faith life, and I could go on and on about what the Lord revealed to me through Dr. Fine, but instead of rambling for hours, here’s the main takeaways from the weekend. It’s important to be in the Word, establish a Sabbath, and enjoy solitude/meditation/listening to God. Get scripture in your subconscious. Know who you are and what you have in Christ. Being in the Word can renew your mind and emotions. We[…]

Be: Student Body President

So, my friend Duby (Director of Student Ministries for ASG) wrote a rap for me on President’s Day. I thought i would share it with you guys so you see a year in the life of the President and what goes on in-between all the events, meetings and other fun things we do. We are one big family and it is so fun to be able to be a part of something that challenges you. I love my ASG family and I would not be the person I am today without the journey from the last four years on ASG.[…]

Awakening

Hey y’all, This week, I’m going to talk about an event that the sophomore ASG class council is putting on, and which I’m lucky enough to be involved in. At the start of the semester, our class president, Austin Petellin, asked us what our vision for the campus for this semester is.  The thought of a spiritual awakening really resonated with the council.  So, we began to plan an event. We came up with a recurring event which will be on a few select Thursdays throughout the rest of the semester. The event is called Awakening, and the first one is[…]
