Philippians 4:13

Today I’ll be talking about something very personal to me and something I don’t normally share with strangers. I’ve never posted the whole story so here it is for the first time! This past April I was sitting in my Civil and Criminal Rights class in high school watching a movie and noticed an abnormal bump on my neck. I had never noticed it before so I went to the nurses office. She had no idea what it was but advised a visit to the doctor. Naturally, I went to the doctor and they weren’t sure either. The next step was a[…]

All Eyes On You

Hope everyone had an awesome week! This time, I’m gonna talk about something I’ve had to remember this year especially. It is SO easy to just act however you want and act however you think will impress your friends. It’s even easier to say things behind people’s backs, or take judgmental posture, but we need to remember that people are always watching, and people are always listening. Whether you know it or not, someone may be modeling their behavior off of yours. I’m a Freshman Seminar Mentor this year, so it’s been even more important to remember this than ever.[…]

Once In a Lifetime Opportunity

Every now and then you get to do something extraordinary. Today I, along with the rest of the MNU football team have the privileged to play in the first annual NAIA Gridiron Challenge at Arrowhead Stadium. (YES! BABY, WHERE THE CHIEFS PLAY!!!) It’s also the first “Defeat all Cancer Game.” It was inspired by our offensive coordinator, Bruce Pielstick. This is a chance to not only play football, but it is a chance to affect people’s lives. There is an article on this game:MNU’s Arrowhead game declared ‘Defeat All Cancer’ game. Every player on the MNU football team who will[…]

MNU is…

This week, I went around campus asking students and faculty to describe what MNU means to them in a few words. This is what they said… Enjoy! -KT

Running for a cause

Last Saturday I had the honor and opportunity to run in the Jared Coones Memorial Pumpkin 5k Run/Walk. Going on its 16th year, this event honors the lives of Jared and Jayne Coones who died of cancer. MNU is a big sponsor of the event and they have a big tent and they paint people faces. It’s really a cool event. MNU also has a team that runs in the event. I’m not going to lie the I underestimated the pace of the race but I still did a lot better than I thought. In high school I used to[…]

Be: A Sports Fan

THIS WEEK/LAST WEEK HAS BEEN ABSOLUTELY CRAZY!! I feel like I have one homework assignment or project or paper or even test after another. It was definitely a crazy busy week. Today I have a Business Communication project with three of my friends Clair Plummer, Caleb Mingus and Drake North. Our project was about bringing a Braum’s (a fast-food place) to Olathe. We had to have a 10-12 minutes speech but got to choose our own topics. My topic was about the human resource and hiring part of building a new restaurant. We totally rocked it and may have even[…]

#BeRoyalKC

Hello friends! I can not even begin to describe my excitement this week has held for me!  As a sports fan born and raised in Kansas City, the last several years have been rather disappointing.  Between the Chiefs and the Royals, a few tears have been shed, several screams of frustration have escaped, and an every once and awhile throwing of an object, have been spread throughout my lifetime.  The only news of glory from my KC sports teams were stories my dad, uncles, and grandpas liked to talk about. And just within this last week, the Royals… THE Kansas City[…]

Oceans

As you may already know, I am an Intercultural Studies major which is part of the Ministry program here at MNU. This weekend I had the opportunity to go with my Intro to Ministry class on a retreat not too far from campus. Although we weren’t there long, the experience was transforming and it really opened my eyes. First, this place was awesome. They had a beautiful sanctuary, rooms like a hotel, and it was incredibly peaceful. The first main event we did was about half an hour of silent time where each student went off on their own to a place to be[…]

Life Outside Olathe

Hey, Everyone! I hope you all had a great week! I had a week full of studying and other “fun.” This week, I’m gonna talk about Kansas City, the metro area we at MNU call home. I’ve lived in Kansas City for a while, but there’s still so much to see and do that I haven’t gotten to yet. I’ve lived in a few different parts of KC, so let’s build some background on that. I was born in Kansas City, Missouri and lived in Prairie Village, Kansas. Soon after, my family moved to Olathe. When my family was called to missions[…]

Inside Look: Scavenger Hunt

Last Thursday, my friends and I participated in the annual freshman photo scavenger hunt. It was a stressful, fun, long night of driving all over Olathe and crossing things off our list. Here’s a few pictures of the crazy things we had to do! 1. Take a picture with sunglasses on 2. Take a picture at a drive through window with an employee 3. Take a picture with the statues outside Chapala 4. Take a picture at a laundry mat 5. Take a picture in front of a fountain 6. Take a picture of someone hula hooping 7. Take a picture of[…]
