January 5th, 2015

Hey guys. This post will be a very serious one and forgive me it’s long. As my fellow bloggers have posted already, the MNU community lost a beautiful young lady who was a bright star shining on our campus. Personally, I didn’t know her but I have seen through her friends that she was an absolute joy to be around and from her pictures she was always smiling. Although I did not know her, I do know how this goes and my deepest empathies go out to the community. Today is the day in which we are saying our “see[…]

A Bright Yellow House

Hello friends Well if you are involved or know anyone in the MNU community, you possibly will know of the recent tragedy that has left many people with heavy and burdened hearts.  One of MNU’s dearest went to be with Jesus a couple days ago.  When heartbreak, tragedy, and trials come our way a mix of emotions rise.  There is confusion.  There is hurt.  There is anger.  There is shock.  All of which are logical and acceptable emotions.  In the past I haven’t always thought that my grieving mix of emotions were acceptable to God.  But that is simply not the[…]

Diary of a College Student

I am a college student, and for that I am thankful.  But it is also a very stressful time.  I mean, I don’t remember a time where I was at a family gathering and wasn’t asked about school or my future career.  When asked about my major, I find an almost whisper and respond, “psychology.”  That single worded response elicits so many questions.  “What do you want to do with that?” “Do you know you have to go to graduate school to be a counselor?” I shake my head quietly every time-o  But secretly I am thinking “do you know[…]

Thank You So Much!!

I know it’s a little late, but it’s been a weird week. I’m still getting over the fact that my football playing days are over. Well let me start over, we lost our playoff game last week to Southern Oregon University last week. It’s been an amazing season, and a wonderful career here at MNU. I have so many great memories that I can take with me for the rest of my life. I just want to thank some of the many people who were able to make all this possible for me. I mean I could spend all day[…]

Values: A Challenge for Thanksgiving Break

Hello friends Today I was inspired to write a quick note about a sermon I heard yesterday in church. David Perkins came in and guest spoke for my church’s (Cross Points Church) missions month. This particular sermon really had me thinking and evaluating, so I thought I would share! “Worship is a response to something we value most.” This was a HUGE statement for me.  I value a lot of things.  I love my sports teams, I love my family and friends, I love Netflix (you can see my post from two weeks ago to fully understand), I love to[…]

Future Fears

Trusting everyone has had a fantastic week, and I hoping you’re all enjoying your weekend.  My weekend consists of hanging with friends for Halloween, spending some time at home, and performing with MNU Choirs tomorrow at 3:30! This week, my brother gave me a great topic to think about: the future. The future used to terrify me more than anything.  I used to think about my college plans, then about real life and grad school, and it would all get me terribly stressed out. Picking a school, picking a major, and from there a career, and where I wanted to[…]

Metamorphosis

I’m a firm believer that God uses His creation to speak to us and teach us. My favorite thing to do is go out in nature and spend time in His presence. My heart always expects Him to show up, and He always does. A few weeks ago, God used the idea of metamorphosis to remind me that I have been transformed. When I gave myself to Christ, I gained a new identity. 2 Corinthians 5:17 says, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.” (ESV) I[…]

Advice Session 4: Take Your Walk to the Next Level

Hello friends! Now if you know anything about me you will know that I love to give advice.  I mean LOVE it.  That is in fact what I am studying to be (I am majoring in psych because I want to be a counselor).  I am really passionate about seeing people come into their own potential in what God wants to do in their lives. So if you have read any of my blogs last year I did a few Advice Sessions so I thought why not? (shoulder shrug). I wanted to give you a few things that have really[…]

Once In a Lifetime Opportunity

Every now and then you get to do something extraordinary. Today I, along with the rest of the MNU football team have the privileged to play in the first annual NAIA Gridiron Challenge at Arrowhead Stadium. (YES! BABY, WHERE THE CHIEFS PLAY!!!) It’s also the first “Defeat all Cancer Game.” It was inspired by our offensive coordinator, Bruce Pielstick. This is a chance to not only play football, but it is a chance to affect people’s lives. There is an article on this game:MNU’s Arrowhead game declared ‘Defeat All Cancer’ game. Every player on the MNU football team who will[…]

#BeRoyalKC

Hello friends! I can not even begin to describe my excitement this week has held for me!  As a sports fan born and raised in Kansas City, the last several years have been rather disappointing.  Between the Chiefs and the Royals, a few tears have been shed, several screams of frustration have escaped, and an every once and awhile throwing of an object, have been spread throughout my lifetime.  The only news of glory from my KC sports teams were stories my dad, uncles, and grandpas liked to talk about. And just within this last week, the Royals… THE Kansas City[…]
