SO MUCH HAS CHANGED SINCE I’VE BEEN HOME.

I still remember the day I left for college. My mom kissed me and told me to not constantly call her (I think she was kidding.) My father who had already prayed for me at least six times in the past five minutes asked if we had prayed yet. I got in the car with my roommate and started our voyage to college. The further we drove the smaller everything got until it was all gone. But what my little enthusiastic freshman mind didn’t know yet was that things were never going to be the same.  Its mid-term now and[…]

KT’S HOMECOMING WEEK RECAP

Hey! So, last week was Homecoming Week here at MNU… which means every night is filled with fun, friends, and free food. 🙂 Here’s a quick recap of the events that I attended. Thursday night: Hoedown The Hoedown is something I look forward to every year. It’s basically a bunch of fun dancing, donuts from the Louisburg Cider Mill, root beer, and the crowning of the class princes and princesses! Friday night: Bonfire/Buck Night This year, ASG decided to do a giant bonfire at one of the football practice fields and then gave every student free food at the Buck[…]

How to Make Friends with the Awkward Dinosaur

One question that I get asked all the time is, “Renee! My goodness, you are a college student now, what ever is your major?” I reply with “Good Sir or Madam, I am a double major in “Bible and Theology” and “Communications”. I love it very much.” To which they reply, “Good heavens! What an unusual combination! What ever do you plan to do with your life?” And they receive from me a blank look of alarm because despite my air of cool collectedness I am quite uncertain of my path in life. This fact never really bothers me unless[…]

▿ Recognize the Good in Your Life ▿

#GRATITUDE “God blesses you to become a blessing. When he gives you a gift, it is because he trusts you with it.

When Your Best Friend Is A Snapchat Master

Hey friend!  So I have a feeling that most of you have the app Snapchat or even heard about it if you don’t have the app on your phone. It’s a great way to communicate and keep up with people that is fun and creative.  But I think it’s safe to say that my best friend Chelsea is a Snapchat master. She has conquered the art of Snapchat. Chelsea can take a selfie and turn it into something beautiful.  Here are a few examples!   And if you’re lucky, she may even let you be her work of art. As[…]

5 Signs You Transferred From A Community College

Hey friends! Being a transfer student gives me a whole new perspective on things, here at MNU.  I’m a new student, but at the same time I have been in college for two years!  Here are just a few things I have noticed about being a transfer student from a community college.   You walk around with your headphones in all the time. People at community college aren’t the most social.  Almost everyone there walks around with headphones in and alone.  It’s almost a social taboo to have a conversation with someone else in the hall. 2.   You do[…]

Impact World

Hey friends! I’m sure a lot of you have heard of YWAM by now.  They are an international Christian organization who’s sole purpose is to bring as many youth to Christ as they possibly can.  They have gone all over the world to places like India, the Philippines, England and even Delaware.  But the last two nights, they were in my hometown of Spring Hill, Kansas. The local churches have been preparing for YWAM for months.  The churches have spent countless hours praying, organizing teams, preparing food for the Impact teams, and setting up the stages.  Honestly, I am relieved[…]

5 Things You Should Probably Know About Me

Hey friends! I’m excited to say that I’m blogging for MNU again this year. Last year was a blast and I’m so thankful to be able to do this for another year. With that being said, in case you didn’t tune in to MNU blogs last year, I’m going to re-introduce myself… here’s 5 things you should probably know about me. 🙂 1. I’m building a relationship with Jesus Christ. I could’ve said “I love Jesus,” and that would’ve been accurate, but that doesn’t say much about my faith journey. I say that I’m building a relationship because that’s exactly[…]

8 Memories To Never Forget

These are 8 memories that I hope to never forget. Freshman year was a blast, and although I’m glad it’s summer, I’m gonna miss the Stockton dorm life! Shoutout to all these amazing people who made fun memories with me. 1. White Light Event This event was not only the one that broke the ice with me and my hall mates, but also where I officially met one of my best friends at MNU… Hannah Bostic. I saw her standing alone by the bleachers, went up to her and said “Let’s be friends,” and the rest is history. 2. Phonathon[…]

#ThrowBAG Thursday

A few weeks ago, I completed an assignment for Public Relations class, in which I was assignment to a group and we had to organize an event for a local non-profit company. We chose Kids TLC, an organization that provides shelter and social services to children and youth who are facing abuse, neglect or family disruption, located right here in Olathe. We planned this event basically the whole semester. We had weekly meetings, contacted various people, gathered a lot donations in order to carry out our event. My group had a little bit of everything, a comedian, a perfectionist, a peacemaker,[…]
