A Month of Pictures

Hello friends! I sat down to my computer just now, drawing up a blank.  Like all the creativity just left my mind.  I don’t know what it is about the pressure of a computer and a deadline that pulls all the creative flow out of my mind.  Regardless, computers and deadlines are a part of an education.  Actually they are a part of life.  So I just gotta get my head in this blog game… woo. I thought I would just share some fun happenings this last month in pictures: (KU game this weekend against TCU) (vote Randi Jenner Pioneer[…]

Be: A Big Girl

Graduation is right around the corner and I could not be more excited since I now have a full time job lined up!

Snowpocalypse

Okay… so it wasn’t really a “snowpocalypse,” but we were excited for the snow. Here’s a short little video showcasing how my friends celebrated. -KT

“Honoring the Past, Shaping the Future”

I mentioned in my blog last week about this cool conference called M15 that I had the privilege to attend. This conference takes place every four years in different places. The fact that it was in Kansas City this year and I was able to go as a freshman was an incredible blessing! My friend Jaque and I left Monday afternoon and headed to downtown Kansas City. MNU took care of most of the costs: hotel, the conference, and lunch on Tuesday. We stayed at the Crowne Plaza hotel. There’s 28 floors to that thing and we were on the 17th. I despise elevators to no end because[…]

Balancing an Unbalanced Life

What does a balanced life look like? I honestly couldn’t tell you, because I don’t have one. I used to think that my life had to be balanced. That I had to have a set schedule. That I had to have everything together. Being in college has forced me to realize that I don’t have to have a balanced life, and certainly that it’s nearly impossible to have one. If I told you my priorities, showed you my calendar, and then you saw how my days actually played out, you would be very confused. But that’s okay, because it used[…]

The Willmer Family

The Willmers are a pretty cool family. You have Coach Willmer  and his wife Lindsay, Emma (12) who is on the left, Addie Joy (10) on the right, Titus (6) who is wearing the Rangers shirt, and the twins Gwenyth & Nehemiah (4). I can honestly say I have never met another family like them. First of all you have the twins Gwenyth & Nehemiah. Gwenyth is a little fireball of energy and don’t worry you’ll see what I mean in the video. She wouldn’t have let me leave her house until I played hide and seek with her and[…]

Identity Crisis

Hey everyone! This week, I’m going to talk about identity. My personal statement/motto for 2015 is Galatians 1:10: “Am I now trying to get people to think well of me? Or do I want God to think well of me? Am I trying to please people? If I were, I would not be serving Christ.” I have had to learn not to spend time worrying about what others think of me. It’s important to listen to others’ advice, especially close family and friends, but ultimately I live for the Savior, and I’m looking for His approval only. It’s important to[…]

#StopAshton2k15

The past few days, my friend Ashton has had bronchitis, so she’s been taking lots of Nyquil. In case you were wondering, Nyquil doesn’t set well with Ashton. Although it makes her feel better, she often says strange things and doesn’t remember what happened the next morning. Here’s a few tweets and text messages to illustrate the craziness that has been happening on the first floor of Stockton Courtside since this sickness invaded. So, as you can see, it’s been a fun and interesting few days with Ashton in a permanent Nyquil-induced mood. But, in all seriousness, Ashton is an[…]

Love Your Enemies

This past week has been quite the eye-opening week for me. My semester has started off great so far but has had a few bumps. I’ve been struggling with some personal things and it hasn’t been easy. For the past 18 years of my life, there’s been some crazy drama. College was a fresh start for me. News flash: there’s still drama in college. Not going into any details, but the main theme throughout this week has been forgiveness and Luke 6:27-36. Being the person I am, I strongly desire for everyone to get along and be jolly. Unfortunately, that’s[…]

Community

Last summer, I was on summer staff at Youthfront Camp West, which is a camp in Edgerton for elementary and middle school aged students. Being on summer staff means being part of a community made up of the other summer staffers, but also the full time staff and weekly volunteers. Being a part of that community and also the community at MNU has taught me a lot. Specifically, it’s taught me the value of community and how to live life more intentionally and fully. There are many important things that I learned about community last semester that has helped me[…]
