B E A U T Y

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[…]

Ten Valuable Things You Learn in College

Hello friends The semester is in officially in full swing– I have four tests next week (gross). But writing is one thing I always look forward to.  I love to write about what is on my heart, what is going on in my life, and what I am learning. So I am writing because I am escaping from my stack of books I have yet to pick up. And today that writing will be about all valuable lessons I have learned in college (yay)! So here it is 10 Valuable Things You Learn in College 1.  There are three valuable[…]

Love Your Enemies

This past week has been quite the eye-opening week for me. My semester has started off great so far but has had a few bumps. I’ve been struggling with some personal things and it hasn’t been easy. For the past 18 years of my life, there’s been some crazy drama. College was a fresh start for me. News flash: there’s still drama in college. Not going into any details, but the main theme throughout this week has been forgiveness and Luke 6:27-36. Being the person I am, I strongly desire for everyone to get along and be jolly. Unfortunately, that’s[…]

Community

Last summer, I was on summer staff at Youthfront Camp West, which is a camp in Edgerton for elementary and middle school aged students. Being on summer staff means being part of a community made up of the other summer staffers, but also the full time staff and weekly volunteers. Being a part of that community and also the community at MNU has taught me a lot. Specifically, it’s taught me the value of community and how to live life more intentionally and fully. There are many important things that I learned about community last semester that has helped me[…]
