What I Would Do Differently If I Was Fifteen Again

We are young and wild and free thus we are justified to do nitty things. However, we can still live up to our full potential if we try a little bit. Let me share some of the things I would do differently If I had a time machine. Number One : Wrong Mindset Let me start with the most important thing of all. Mindset is such a powerful tool. It has a power to make us as successful, productive and positive as we wish. On the other hand, our mindset can cause a terrible damage. In my case, mindset has[…]

Action Pact takes to the road

This last weekend the Action Pact travel team packed packed up our bags and jumped in our fifteen passenger van at 10:15 AM to begin what ended up as a seven hour road trip to Cimarron, KS. Between moments of doing homework, sleeping, and jamming out to the radio our team of six alternated between melting in suffocating heat when the windows were closed or being slapped by relentless wind when the windows were opened. Action Pact followed Voices of Praise, an eight person singing group, in Clifford, their big red van. This was the second event Action Pact has[…]

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[…]

Intro to Ministry Retreat

Friday night into Saturday morning was the Intro To Ministry class retreat, a trip designed to help beginning ministry students get to know each other and their professors better as well as learn new spiritual disciplines, how to “be real” with people, and the importance questioning mind-set. They threw in a gorgeous catholic retreat center and food because they love us and we got to meet and hang out with the professors who will be teaching us as we embark on our quests for a degree from the Department of Christian Education and Spiritual Formation. It sounded really nice. I[…]

#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,[…]

Well the track season is here and the HCA (Heritage Christian Academy, in case you didn’t know) Track & Field Team has been working hard getting ready for the upcoming season.

You know what… I just realized that I haven’t even  told you guys anything about these[…]

Cracking Down

Hey everyone, Not sure what to blog about this week, so I figured I’d just talk about what’s going on. It’s coming down to the wire here at MNU, with just a month left of school, and it seems like I have something stressful going on in every part of my life. Thursday night, we had our second Awakening. This time, we had it outside on the circle lawn, and it was SO good. The setting was perfect, and we got closer again to accomplishing what we’ve set out to do: to see our campus set on fire for God.[…]
