The Truth About Community

Going to MNU has definitely taught me a lot about what it means to live in community. Coming into my freshman year, I had a lot of unrealistic expectations about the community at MNU. For example, I expected to be best friends with everyone. I didn’t expect cliques, drama, or really any hardships at all. I’ve now been going to MNU for 3 full semesters, and in that time I’ve learned some simple truths about community. Truth #1: You won’t be best friends with everyone The community at MNU is unique because it’s giant. When I hear the word “community,” I[…]

A Passion to Serve at MNU

MNU has lots of wonderful ministries that give students the opportunity to go into the community and serve others. To be honest, I’ve been to a few ministries, but haven’t found time in my schedule to regularly commit to attend a ministry. Last week, I was hired to create the MNU Ministries launch video for this Spring 2016. It was such a blessing to me because it allowed me to hear impactful stories from students who have been investing in ministries for a full semester. It’s encouraging to know that there is a group of students at MNU that devote[…]

It Has Only Been the 1st Week of School

I love how, on the first day of fall semester, everyone is so excited to start school. Students arrive 3+ days early, setting up their dorm rooms, if they are living on campus. Then fall break comes and everyone is so happy the semester is over! Now, spring semester has began. Everyone is coming back as late as possible. Some students are even arriving on campus a few days after their classes have started. I find this, quite, hilarious. It has only been the first week back, and I am counting down the days, till spring break. It has only[…]

The Awkward Dinosaur Tries New Things

It’s a new semester, a new year, with new classes, a new job, and a time to try new things and start new habits. This week I have begun all sorts of new things. First of all I began my new job as Managing Editor and News Editor of the Trailblazer. I have a new office on campus and brand new coworkers. I got to decorate my office which was awesome and it’s really nice to have a place of my own to get some work done during the day. I’ve been loving my new classes but probably my favorite[…]

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[…]

Welcome to the Suite Life

Living in Spindle 306 is so fun… and strange at times. Our living area is full of crazy and weird things. Here’s a virtual tour of our suite… and why you should come visit sometime. 🙂 Paper snowflakes on the ceiling. Christmas time in Spindle 306 is a blast, including these homemade snowflakes that stay up all winter. A scooter garage. Yes, we actually use them. Scooter rides in the parking lot happen often. Lamps with no bulbs in them. I honestly have no clue why we don’t have lightbulbs in some of our lamps. Decoration, I guess? A toilet[…]

My Favorite Memories From This Semester

As the semester comes to a close, I’ve been reflecting on my favorite memories of sophomore year so far. The first thing that comes to mind is the trip I took to Colorado over fall break. I went with my friend Christen and we stayed with an amazing family while we were there. Christen and I explored Colorado Springs, hung out with horses, watched some Royals baseball, and went to New Life Church. Speaking of Royals baseball, another one of my favorite memories is when the Royal’s won the World Series… and every game leading up to that. My friends[…]

It’s OK To Feel Down Sometimes

Hey friends! So I wanted to talk about this during mental health awareness week but I obviously missed that chance, but I think that I can tie the subject in pretty well to this upcoming week. “But Isaac!  What are you even talking about?!” I’m glad you asked!  I am talking about depression. “But Isaac!  How does this subject tie into this upcoming week?!” Ok, calm down I’ll tell you. Finals week is stressful.  For some people, probably more than you think, it is a make it or break it time.  For some people, these tests are a matter of[…]

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,[…]

Fall Semester Is Almost Over 📚

There are only two weeks left of our fall semester. We call this period of the semester “crunch time.” This is where a lot of students are trying to do anything and everything to get their letter grade from a B to an A; or for those students struggling to pass that tough class, with a C or better. This is when, students start asking their professors for extra credit, or if there is anything else they can do to get their grade up. A biology professor of mine, ounce said . . . “Why would I trust and spend my hard earned[…]
