Traveling Dublin, Ireland

Hello! So my name is Briana and I am a junior here at MNU. I am studying abroad in Manchester, England which is why you won’t see me on campus for the fall semester. I came to Europe two weeks early to travel and went to 8 cities and 6 countries. I am breaking up the videos by city so you don’t have to watch a ridiculously long video (you’re welcome). Dublin Ireland was my first stop on my two week holiday (as they call it in the UK), before going to NTC’s campus. I can’t wait to share my[…]

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[…]

Spring Break Adventures

Hey friends! Friday night, I got back from a crazy spring break.  No I was not partying, drinking, or waking up with my friends then discovering a dead body that forces us to make a blood oath so no one ever reveals our secret.  Instead, I was hiking through the Smokey Mountains with Kairos. 19 of us went to rough it up in the wilderness for three days.  We left last Tuesday and drove to Nashville.  We explored a little of downtown Nashville for a few hours then stayed the night at a church in Nashville.  The next morning we[…]

Spring Break 2016: Colorado

Hey everyone! This week is spring break, which means that I’ve consumed more junk food than usual and I haven’t worn jeans at all (except to church). On Saturday, I road tripped to Colorado Springs with my friend Morgan. We were on the same hall freshman year and this year we are on newspaper staff together. It was fun to spend time with her and relax! Like I said, we began our adventure in Colorado Springs. We explored Garden of the Gods, went shopping in Manitou Springs, and hung out with some friends that live in Colorado. We stayed in Colorado Springs[…]

Spring Break

Hey friends! As you all know, this is the last day of classes before our Spring break starts.  Most of us are leaving campus.  Tuesday, I am leaving at 7 in the morning to drive to Tennessee with Kairos.  We are going to be backpacking through the Smokey Mountains.  I have gone on several trips with Kairos and this will be the second time for me in the Smoky Mountains.  Last time I went backpacking through them was two years ago. We will be back late Friday night.  I am going to do my best in taking pictures to have[…]

Theatrical Escapades at MidAmerica

This has been kind of an insane week for me. This is mostly because I am now a part of four shows at MNU and all four were a part of my week this week. Mousetrap I am super excited for Mousetrap! It is a show written by one of my favorite authors, Agatha Christie. It’s a murder mystery set in post WWII era London. I play Mollie who owns a guest house with her husband, Giles. The play begins with the opening of their guest house and as the play continues the audience sees how the young couple’s big[…]

My Hymn For The Weekend

Hey friends! I don’t know if you know, but Coldplay released their music video for their awesome song Hymn For The Weekend feat. Beyonce and it is amazing.  I titled this blog after their song and also because I am going to tell you about a great weekend I had two weeks ago. Two weekends ago, I drove me and a van load of my friends to the River Market to do a little shopping.  For those of you who are new to the KC area or just do not know much about it ( I am one of those[…]

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[…]

Thanksgiving in Texas

For Thanksgiving break I went with Quinn, my mom, my dad, and my brother to Houston, Texas to visit my family. I thought I would share some of my pictures from the trip 🙂 Friday we went to a University of Houston football game. I know nothing about sports but Quinn and I managed to have fun. It was just great to hang out with family. We drove home Saturday and Sunday. It was great to see family that I hadn’t seen in a while. I decided also to thank God for three main things this year. For my Family. They[…]

Colorado – A place for new perspective

Over Fall Break, I went on a last minute road trip with my friend Christen to Divide, Colorado. We stayed with some amazing people, probably the most hospitable people I know, and had a relaxing and refreshing weekend. I knew that I needed an extended Sabbath time to pray about some things and take a break from school, so I made sure to use my time in Colorado wisely. On Friday morning, Christen and I went to Golden Bell Camp and hung out with some horses. That was really the first time I spent time with a horse. It was[…]
