The Honeybee Hive.

I am convinced that the kind of people you surround yourself with shape who you become more than anything else in life. In coming to college, I knew that I needed to find a community of people who could not only support and encourage me, but also challenge me through speaking truth into my life. It is beautiful looking back on the past few years and seeing how the Father has taken me on this journey of provision in allowing me to share life with such good, good people. I currently reside in Draper 2 on campus, otherwise known as[…]

The one where we live with ‘brothers.’ (monks)

We just got back from Taize, France on Monday and it was quite an experience. We stayed in a monastic community where we lived in a community of brothers. A brother resembles a monk but just isn’t catholic. They have dedicated their lives to celibacy and to God. Taize is a community that is geared toward youth and they have hundreds and even thousands come to live in the community for a period of time. We had prayer services three times a day. Before breakfast, before lunch, and then after dinner. The prayer services are very unique. Everyone sits on[…]

Chosen

On October 23rd in Community Chapel at College Church there was a group from Africa that belted it out, broke it down with some sweet moves, and definitely praised the Lord. They were called Chosen, and for good reason! They were “chosen” by God to excel at what I am incapable of, to do what I plan to do in that of bringing Christ to those EVERYWHERE, and also remind me of what I forget sometimes. There are two separate things I’d like to focus on in this piece. First, what those amazing kids reminded me of. In one of[…]

Step Up

Competition can be a crazy thing sometimes. I’m the kind of guy who loves competition, but I do not take it too seriously. So the other day Lanbarger House had a few dodgeball games in Land Gym and I see that there are a lot of other guys who love competition too…..but way too much.  They take it way too seriously.  There was name calling, cheating, lying, and it really just took away from the game.  And that’s really all it is:  a game.  It’s only a game and yet people treat these games like it’s life or death.  Yeah[…]

Hometown Glory.

There’s something about moving away from home that makes you appreciate it all the more. It suddenly becomes a place that you begin to long for. I am so thankful to have had fall break this past weekend in which I was able to go home and simply be with my family. If you ever get the chance, be sure to make a little road trip out to the good ol’ town of Manhattan, KS, because visiting the little apple is quite the treat. Being a college town, Manhattan is just a tad livelier than your average town of 53,000.[…]

The one where the hills come alive with the sound of music!

This past weekend was my first personal trip of the semester. And I loved it. Hannah Swearengin, Hayley Pankratz, Erin Knocke, and I got up super early to catch a bus, then a train, then another train, and then finally hours later arrived in Salzburg, Austria. The train ride there was beautiful. The scenery that we traveled through was incredible. After we arrived we wandered around for awhile until eventually finding our hostel. Yes we stayed in a youth hostel. And yes it was awesome. The next day we went to multiple museums such as Mozart’s birthplace and his residence. We also did some shopping through Old[…]

Passion, Purpose, Pumpkin

On October 13, 2012 at 8am, in the cool, about to rain, Kansas weather a race was run. I was about to embark on a journey with one of my best friends and encouragements Mike Reynolds. Music prevalent was over the surrounding chattering crowd. Numerous shouts of encouragement being thrown out and an all around joyous time being had. All this somehow associated with one of the most massive sorrowful events that any family could experience. It was in honor of an amazing family, and I have never met them. The story, the fight, the loss, but the purpose triumphs.[…]
