The one when God answers prayer…with ME!

Hello there reader. Did you know that God is so awesome. Well just listen to this story. I went to ICF this past Sunday with a girl that I became friends with here named Corinna. She picked me up and off we went to the celebration.- They call their services ‘celebrations’ because they want everyone to know that they celebrate the Lord. Upon arrival we are waved down by her friends in the front that had saved us spots. -CELEBRATION HAPPENS- After it gets over one of the  girls sitting by my friend starts talking to me. We talked about[…]

God Loves Us All: Even The Children

Have you ever worked with children?  Do you have little brothers or sisters, have you babysat, or are you employed where you work with children?  If any of those are true than you know how rough kids can be.  All three of those are true for me.  I have three little sisters, I’ve babysat many times before, and I have worked at a daycare/preschool for almost two years now.  After working with children so much, I’ve gained a few life lessons that will probably stick with me forever. I’ve learned that children, sometimes, just need to be alone.  I’ve seen[…]

The one where an Asian lady gets attacked by a swan.

HEY!  I’m so sorry that this is late- for some reason I couldn’t log in earlier this week. 🙁 But I can now so here we go! This past week I went to Lucerne and St. Gallen in Switzerland! We also had a fall banquet which was so amazing! Our fall banquet was a super nice night for all of us to get together with the staff and neighbors that live in Busingen. We all got dressed up, as much as we could with what we had, and had a great time. The dinner that we had was Raclette style[…]

Your peace which surpasses all understanding…

The craziness of the semester has come to a hilt for me. This week has been the very essence of scrambling around trying to get everything done, turned in, and checked off my list. However, despite the stress, God has been making his blessings yet again evident to me and is continuing to give me his peace. So thankful for what he allowed me to experience and be a part of this week. This last weekend there was a Nazarene youth conference called Breakaway here on campus. Nazarene youth groups from the Kansas City area joined together in College Church for a night of worship,[…]

Breathe….

I know life is crazy for me! Ups, downs, and every other possible direction! Sometimes, you just have to sit back and take in what God has to offer. When life gets busy and school gets psychotic, and everything becomes a blur, just remember to BREATHE. I mean look at the top picture, how does that not create awe? Everything is perfectly designed by God, in this picture and within us. Make time for Him and find Him in every facet of life! You just have to empty your hands so He can fill them. Even when you do this,[…]

Election Week

It feels like the longest week in the history of my life. The elephant on the blog is the presidential election this week. This was my first year to vote, and I feel like an adult officially! To remind us to vote, Professor Ford wore a Romney mask to class on Monday. He said he went to Wal-Mart for marked-down Halloween items. He wanted both a Romney and an Obama mask, but they sold out of Obama faces. He then suggested someone in a Stats class see if there is a correlation between masks sold on Halloween to which candidate[…]

God Loves Us All: Even the Discouraged

Discouragement: A loss of confidence or enthusiasm; despiritedness An attempt to prevent something by showing disapproval or creating difficulties; deterrent   Why do we deal with discouragement so much?  Why does there always have to be something in the way?  Why does life have to be so hard?  These are questions I hear people ask every day.  There’s so many things in life that discourage us, as humans, that we can’t seem to avoid: death, failure, loss of friends, an abrupt change in plans.  Why does it seem that after we just get out of a bad time, and we[…]

The one with the epiphany.

For the past week I have livin it up in Frankfurt. As soon as I got off the train I knew I was going to like it there. And I was right. I absolutely loved this week! I learned many things about myself and God revealed so much to me about personal areas of my life as well as my future plans-His plans. We worked with Chris Zimmerman. Some of you might/should remember him speaking there at MNU earlier this semester. Well I am just gonna let my little notes about this whole experience speak for themselves. Ready. Set. Go. *Our vision is Heaven on[…]
