Why You Should Go to (School In) Kansas City

Hello friends! Nice of you to stop by– and can I say this semester has flown by!  We now only have 7 weeks left of this fall semester…. (mind-blown gasp)  Yes its crazy, its intense, its ridiculous, and its scary– but lets not let that stop us from enjoying a read and learning about an amazing city.  Yup, KANSAS CITY actually IS an amazing city. Now I put “school in” in parentheses because you can leave those words in or out.  If you have already graduated college or already attend a college than lets read this as “Why You Should[…]

Midterms, WHAT?

Hey guys! I’m a little late posting this week, but I promise I won’t leave ya hangin’ any longer! It’s been an eventful weekend involving buying a new laptop (which I absolutely love) and studying for midterms. YIKES. It’s that time in the semester when us Pioneers are getting bombarded with beautiful midterm exams and stress levels out the wazoo. I am writing today to give some (what I hope will be helpful) tips on how to survive your first semester of college:   1) Make Friends! Community is important here at MNU because we all wanna love each other. This[…]

Road Trip!

Hey guys! Sorry this is coming at you a day late, but I hope everyone is having a great weekend- it’s the last day of fall break for MNU students and I’ve had a great time. School breaks or even weekends can be a great time to get to know some friends better- by having them come to your hometown or you going to theirs.  It’s so fun to see all of the places in their hometown your friends talk about, meet their family and friends from back home, and get a home cooked (free and delicious) meal! Having friends[…]

Metamorphosis

I’m a firm believer that God uses His creation to speak to us and teach us. My favorite thing to do is go out in nature and spend time in His presence. My heart always expects Him to show up, and He always does. A few weeks ago, God used the idea of metamorphosis to remind me that I have been transformed. When I gave myself to Christ, I gained a new identity. 2 Corinthians 5:17 says, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.” (ESV) I[…]

Shout outs to my homies!

This week is all about the shout outs to some of my favorite people on and off campus! You meet so many people during your four years at MNU you could practically fill up a book of yellow pages! That is what makes MNU so amazing, is all the people you meet along the journey. So this week I dedicated to a few special people! These girls mean a lot to me! They understand me and have been there for me since the very beginning when we all found out we got elected as executive members for Assocaited Student Government![…]

Advice Session 4: Take Your Walk to the Next Level

Hello friends! Now if you know anything about me you will know that I love to give advice.  I mean LOVE it.  That is in fact what I am studying to be (I am majoring in psych because I want to be a counselor).  I am really passionate about seeing people come into their own potential in what God wants to do in their lives. So if you have read any of my blogs last year I did a few Advice Sessions so I thought why not? (shoulder shrug). I wanted to give you a few things that have really[…]

Man What a Game!!!

  In case you didn’t know, the MNU FB team beat Missouri Valley 21 to 17. We played at Arrowhead Stadium (YES WHERE THE CHIEFS PLAY!!). Missouri Valley was the #7 ranked team in the country. While we weren’t even ranked. Not a lot of people besides the MNU faithful (Shoutout!) gave us a chance to win that game. This game had everything, as every rivalry game should. One of the coolest things about the game happened before the game started, we were the home team so we got to stay in the Chief locker room, it was amazing being[…]

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[…]
