A Look Back On My Break

Hey friends! So this week concludes the first week of classes of second semester here at MNU.  Personally, I am not fully recovered from Winter Break.  It is a strange feeling because I was ready to come back to school.  Being a young adult and going back home is kind of weird.  My mom still wanted to know where I was going, who I was with, and when I would be home.  It really did not make me angry.  It was just kind of inconvenient because living here on campus, you get use to not having to tell anyone any[…]

My New Year Resolutions

Hey friends!  It is five days into the new year and I have been doing some thinking.  Looking back, last year was not necessarily the best year of my life.  It was actually pretty rough on me.  Through all that, I have grown to be the person I am now and I think I have handled this past year very well. I have grown a lot from all of the trials I faced.  I made amazing new friends and strengthened the relationships of friends I already had. I want to continue growing and becoming the person God wants to be[…]

Slaying the Stress Monster

This week is insane. It just is. The week before finals everyone either seems to walk around like zombies who have given up on life or are running around like overly caffeinated squirrels trying to get everything done at the last minute. I have taken to switching between the two pretty much on the hour. I would prefer not to talk about the things that are causing me stress (as they are all my fault for putting them off). However, I would absolutely love to talk about the way God has blessed me with ways to keep me sane. For example,[…]

Does love at first sight exist?

Recap: Many studies have been done to test the mathematical factors of true love.  In this video I talk about a few studies I researched and found interesting. With all religion aside, what’s your best chances of finding the “one”? To watch a few TedTalks on the topic…click HERE…or HERE P.S. I’ll apologize in advance for the dancing at the end. 🙂 I hope every one has a GREAT winter break & spends time with the ones they love.

Dating at MNU

For those who don’t know, I have a boyfriend that doesn’t go to MNU. Austin attends Saint Mary’s in Leavenworth, KS (the polar opposite direction of Olathe.) Even though I get to see all these happy couples together on campus, sometimes I’m happy that he doesn’t go to the same university as me. One reason being that he is incredibly competitive with me; the other is that “Ring by Spring” is so real it’s scary. Here at MNU, if you sit with a member of the opposite sex 3 or more times, you are automatically considered dating. Oh my. I[…]

Let’s Be Freaks and Weirdos Again

A lot of things can happen during a show week. When you’re forced to spend almost thirty hours in one week with the same group of people, crazy things are bound to happen. Brigadoon was last week and, like most of the “fun” things I try to do on campus, God managed to wrangle his way into it. I’m not going to talk about the show its self–although it was totally awesome, everybody in the cast did a fantastic job, the crew rocked as did the pit, and the male lead was absolutely wonderful (I think he’s super cute too. For[…]

– – – – – Traveling to New Places – – – – – ✗

The adventures have begun . . . . . . Two weeks ago, got a three day weekend! MNU calls it “fall break.” It is really just a Friday off from school, but I was not complaining! So, I made a spontaneous decision, to get away for the three day weekend. I needed to take a break from all the midterm exams and studies. When people ask, what city I am from in Northern California, I say, Sacramento. Why, because it is the closest city to me, for someone who, does not truly know California. I am actually not from[…]

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[…]

What Forgiveness Is – And What It Isn’t

Recently, I’ve had to forgive people for some things that I wish didn’t happen. Through the process of apologizing and forgiving, I came to realize that my definition of forgiveness was skewed. I assumed that forgiveness came with certain expectations and stipulations, but the truth is, it doesn’t. On Sunday, my pastor talked about forgiveness, and what he said was nothing short of a revelation to me. Here’s what he said… Forgiveness doesn’t make someone’s sin okay. Forgiveness doesn’t deny hurt or offense. Forgiveness is not always a relational reset. And here’s what I got from what he said… Forgiving[…]

#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,[…]
