Theatrical Escapades at MidAmerica

This has been kind of an insane week for me. This is mostly because I am now a part of four shows at MNU and all four were a part of my week this week. Mousetrap I am super excited for Mousetrap! It is a show written by one of my favorite authors, Agatha Christie. It’s a murder mystery set in post WWII era London. I play Mollie who owns a guest house with her husband, Giles. The play begins with the opening of their guest house and as the play continues the audience sees how the young couple’s big[…]

A New Job

It took me one and a half year to realize that I need a job. I knew that I was short on money after I saw what kind of books were required, but finding a job and organize it with my schedule took way longer. As an international student, you have to take different steps before you can get enrolled for a job on campus. The golden rule if you don’t want to be deported is: DO NOT WORK OFF CAMPUS! I only have a student visa which means I can’t make money unless it happens while being involved with[…]

My Hymn For The Weekend

Hey friends! I don’t know if you know, but Coldplay released their music video for their awesome song Hymn For The Weekend feat. Beyonce and it is amazing.  I titled this blog after their song and also because I am going to tell you about a great weekend I had two weeks ago. Two weekends ago, I drove me and a van load of my friends to the River Market to do a little shopping.  For those of you who are new to the KC area or just do not know much about it ( I am one of those[…]

Improvising the Improv Show…And Leaving a Legacy in the Mean Time

So after a crazy night of rehearsal, followed by an even crazier improv performance with Action Pact, and completely overtaking McDonald’s on Santa Fe, I managed to start leaving my mark and I hope you decided to as well! 🙂 Tune in next week for a behind-the-scenes look at “The Mousetrap” by Agatha Christie!

The Truth About Community

Going to MNU has definitely taught me a lot about what it means to live in community. Coming into my freshman year, I had a lot of unrealistic expectations about the community at MNU. For example, I expected to be best friends with everyone. I didn’t expect cliques, drama, or really any hardships at all. I’ve now been going to MNU for 3 full semesters, and in that time I’ve learned some simple truths about community. Truth #1: You won’t be best friends with everyone The community at MNU is unique because it’s giant. When I hear the word “community,” I[…]

Them there Crazy Christian People

Sunday night my small group gathered together in Weatherby chapel, sat in a small circle on the floor at the front, and spent the next two hours praying together and singing worship songs. I wish this was more normal for us and in time I hope it will be. It got me thinking though…why isn’t this more normal? Why do I feel uncomfortable praying for more than thirty seconds or worshiping without a leader or even a single guitar? Jesus said in John 15 that the world will hate us as Christians because they hated him. We have been chosen[…]

A Passion to Serve at MNU

MNU has lots of wonderful ministries that give students the opportunity to go into the community and serve others. To be honest, I’ve been to a few ministries, but haven’t found time in my schedule to regularly commit to attend a ministry. Last week, I was hired to create the MNU Ministries launch video for this Spring 2016. It was such a blessing to me because it allowed me to hear impactful stories from students who have been investing in ministries for a full semester. It’s encouraging to know that there is a group of students at MNU that devote[…]

It’s Never Too Late For A Peace Treaty

I hate watching the news. It’s full of hatred and anger. I can’t tell you the last time I turned on Fox News and heard a story of peace and love. Why is it that we live in a day and age where my Bluetooth speaker can tell me the weather report and my daily schedule, but I can’t feel safe walking out to my car after dark? This week we celebrated Martin Luther King Jr Day and I sat through a passion filled chapel, but the whole time I was struggling with the concept of “peace”. Dr. King called[…]

From Cali to Kansas

After having such a great flight, I had an even better stay in California. When thinking of Cali, all I think of are movies that depict long, white beaches with sparkling blue water, big houses, and rich people driving around in convertibles. The sun always shines, and the streets are full of surfers, skateboarders, tourists taking pictures, and people in bathing suites. I think of palm trees, In-N-Out Burgers, and Mountains or in other words: paradise. The good thing: It was exactly like paradise. The bad thing: It was over too soon. My boyfriend picked me up from the airport and[…]

It Has Only Been the 1st Week of School

I love how, on the first day of fall semester, everyone is so excited to start school. Students arrive 3+ days early, setting up their dorm rooms, if they are living on campus. Then fall break comes and everyone is so happy the semester is over! Now, spring semester has began. Everyone is coming back as late as possible. Some students are even arriving on campus a few days after their classes have started. I find this, quite, hilarious. It has only been the first week back, and I am counting down the days, till spring break. It has only[…]
