COLLEGE- A YEAR TO FIND YOURSELF

Maybe it’s been the gloomy weather, or maybe it’s all those Coldplay songs I’ve been listening to. But I’ve been in a really poetic mood. So I wrote this poem portraying some of the things you may find yourself dealing with college. A YEAR TO FIND YOURSELF Every season brings in a tide of new faces and waves of new rages. Old prides will be torn down so humility may grow. You will reap what you sow Strangers will become lovers and crushes will forget. You’ll be a hopeless romantic because cupid’s arrows will miss. You’ll tell stories of who[…]

Fall Break Hiking Trip

Hey friends! You may have noticed that I did not post on my normal day. Over the fall break weekend I went on a hiking and backpacking trip in Arkansas with Kairos.  Kairos is the college age ministry group that meets at College Church of the Nazarene. They normally take a trip every school break.  They go backpacking during fall break, skiing over winter break, backpacking again over spring break, and white water rafting over summer vacation. Over fall break 22 MNU and JCCC students went to Arkansas and hiked the Ozark Highland Trails. We also peaked  Whiterock Mountain.  I[…]

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. He hopes you turn around and do something powerful with it.”                                                          – Anonymous    Throughout life God blesses us. These blessings are gifts. These gifts can be a wide variety of many things, from a challenge we have to overcome, learn from, start over, accept, appreciate, be thankful for, etc. He[…]

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[…]
