30 THINGS THAT WILL MAKE YOU A PIONEER AND NOT A SETTLER!

[three_fifth_last][/three_fifth_last] Guys, it’s time! Time to separate the reals from the fake, the Queen B’s from the Kardashians, the Pioneers from the settlers. This is what makes you a pioneer! Hopefully you can Identify and enjoy! If you’ve never had a conversation with Pope St. John, and not laugh or smile then you’re not a pioneer. If you’ve never texted your home girl (or homie) to come open the door for you, because you stayed out past curfew then you’re not a pioneer. If you’ve never had to squeeze six people into an individual study room, because all the group[…]

Diversity: The Road to a Smarter Church

Dr. Cindy Peterson, one of my Communication professors, posted an article on our “Decision Making in Small Groups” class Moodle site entitled “How Diversity Makes Us Smarter” published by Scientific American. Around this same time that she did this, Dr. Dean Flemming talked to my Book of Acts class about diversity in the church. Learning these two things side by side, along with this being Black History Month, got me thinking…why can’t we combine these two concepts? The article mentioned above basically states that a good mixture of factors such as race, age, sex, and background bring a variety of different[…]

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[…]

Terms You Learn in College

Last week it dawned on me that my vocabulary has recently expanded. Upon coming to college, there are several new terms that I’ve had to learn and use in my every day vocabulary. I wanted to share those with you all in hopes that you don’t have to stare blankly back at those would use them on you in your years to come. Love Language: This is the verbal and nonverbal communication between you and your significant other in which you express how you feel. I’d never heard anyone say this until this year…and now everyone does. The hard part is everyone[…]

10 Times Liz Lemon Embodied The MNU College Experience

Liz Lemon is a pretty strange woman from the hit TV series 30 Rock.  I think that she perfectly and strangely captures the college experience here at MNU.  I am sure that everyone here has experienced at least one of these Liz Lemon moments. When you can’t figure out how to hook up the cable in your dorm room. 2. When you are looking forward to Glow With The Flow at the end of next semester because you know this year is going to wreck you.                            […]

What’s a day in college look like?

It’s November? It’s November! Time to schedule classes for next semester… already! Upon planning my new schedule, I realized a typical college daily routine will change semester to semester. So I wanted to illustrate to you all what your schedule MIGHT consist of going day to day. (Now let’s remember that I’m taking 16 credit hours and working full time. This might not be what YOU end up doing.) Morning Routine: I wake up around 7:30am, as a commuter I leave at 8:20am for my 9am class. Depending on the day, I might eat breakfast, spend a solid amount of[…]

You may say that I put my faith in a God that I cannot see

You may not understand, you may not even agree. You may say that I put my faith in a God that I can’t see. But the truth is, I see him every day. I see him when I walk outside and see the weather, in whatever form it may be, I know my God created it and all its diversity. I see him when I wake up to my loved ones and see their smile every morning. I see him in the 4-year-old in their mother’s arms; what a beautiful sight that God has made in his own image. I see[…]

“The God Who Sees Me”

Hello friends I spoke in class chapel last week and a lot of people had asked that I share what I talked about.  So if you didn’t get to hear it, here you go!  This has something that has been on my heart the last several weeks and I am glad it spoke to so many: I don’t like to ask for help. I will try to find places on my own first before looking it up on my GPS. I never asked my parents or teachers for help in school. I think there is a part of me that[…]

Meet Siska

Hi, friends! During Homecoming week, I decided to sponsor a child through Compassion International, which was one of the best decisions I could have made, but also a very unexpected decision. As a Christ follower who grew up going to lots of Christian concerts, I’ve heard the “sponsor a child tonight” speech countless times. Every time, I would wish that I could, but never did because I didn’t have the money and I thought I was too young. As a member of Rend Collective eased into yet another “sponsor a child tonight” speech at the concert Friday night, I reached[…]

BIG Dreams from a BIG God

Hello friends! So… This week was pretty crazy!  It was Spiritual Deepening week, the Olympics were in full swing, and this crazy Kansas weather has been through practically 4 seasons in a week!  With plenty of things to do this week, I had kind of put off thinking about what I was going to write about.  Reflecting back I tried to come up with a common theme of the different events of the week, and one that came to mind was BIG DREAMS. Now if you know me, I am a big dreamer.  I am always dreaming of the future[…]
