My Faith in a Pic

I have to admit that being a Christian in Europe differs greatly from being a Christian in Olathe, Kansas. At home, the only times you visit a church is on Christmas Eve or when you are a tourists. We have beautiful churches, but they are old and traditional. They are as old and traditional as the services, the messages preached and the songs that are sung. The result is that I barely ever went to church until I came here. And then I was confronted with a new perspective on faith and the bible which I barely knew anything about.[…]

Feeling the Love

This weekend was absolutely incredible and full of love. Usually I wouldn’t cheese up Valentine’s day but this weekend was actually really special to me. Friday and Saturday I went to the Women of Faith Farewell Tour at the Sprint Center. Their theme was Loved and it was one of the most encouraging conferences I have ever been to. Most of the women who did this conference had been traveling and speaking together for twenty years. Several of the speakers were over sixty years old. It was incredibly encouraging to see women completely command that space, share their testimonies, and[…]

The Road to Recovery

The first few days after surgery, all I wanted to do was sleep, sleep, and more sleep. The pain medication, the doctor provided me, made me sleepy within, 30 minutes. I would say by day three or four, the pain was excruciating. So, I made sure to just stay in bed and keep it elevated. Crutches, are for sure, my new cardio. Within the first couple of days, I knew, I had to get my tolerance built up. I did not start actually crutching a lot, until, day five or six; but my arms sore the first few days. The[…]

VALENTINE’S DAY MEANS….

When we were younger Valentine’s Day meant getting lots of candy, Hannah Montana stickers (pre -wrecking ball Miley was DABOMB.COM) Valentine’s Day meant buying candy the night before, then praying that your classmates didn’t buy the same kind, but most importantly Valentine’s Day was the victorious feeling you felt at the end of the day. You know that feeling you felt when you came home with a backpack full of cavities, I mean candy. By the time we reached high school it was less about how much candy you could get, but more about if you’d be watching “The Notebook”[…]

30-DAYS-NO-COMPLAIN-CHALLENGE

It is really hard to share an apartment with so many people and sometimes we have a difficult time loving each other. One forgets to take out the trash, the other one leaves her dishes on the counter… But It is easy to complain about it. This is over now (or at least for 30 days)! Some of us signed a contract for the 30-day-no-complaint-challenge which says that we all can’t complain starting February 11th. We will have a score board in our room to keep track of how many complaints each person has. At the end of the challenge, every[…]

Being Sick in College

This past week, I’ve been sick. The worst kind of sick I’ve been since being in college. It’s lasted for 7 days and counting. It started out being a stomach bug and then turned into a terrible cough/cold. I have no clue what’s going on, but lemme tell ya, being sick away from home is not fun. BUT, people at MNU are awesome and have helped in making it not as bad as it could be. I had to miss class for a day, so when I e-mailed all my professors, they told me to rest up and get better.[…]

When School sets your eyes on Jesus

One thing that I absolutely love about MidAmerica is that my professors will lead devotions before class or tie the material that we are learning that day into faith. This has really helped me to see how faith can be applied really everywhere in life. I remember sitting in a Communications Class and discussing how the theory of Cognitive Dissonance relates to the Holy Spirit and personal conviction of sin. It caused me to think about how God uses human psychology at times and how he goes against at other times causing us to know it has to be from[…]
