NSLC This Week!

Hey everyone! This week, I’m preparing to go to Nazarene Student Leadership Conference, or NSLC. We leave tomorrow, at 6am, and head from here to Bourbonnais, IL to Olivet Nazarene University, who are hosting the event this year. The schedule involves group sessions focused on leadership, as well as sessions in which we share ideas and information with our counterparts at other Nazarene universities. For instance, I’ll be meeting with the other Directors of Social Life from the other schools. There are other events, like a dodgeball tournament, and spirit events that we’ll be participating in as well, not to[…]

Spring Break Forever

Okay, spring break was amazing. Last Thursday, the squad (Ana, Rico, Annie and I), flew to Florida.  We had an awesome time, and unfortunately, we get to go back to school tomorrow. Yay 8AMs. These photos are just a taste of the fun we had there, from the beach to the awesome food and different restaurants we visited, we made some great memories. Watching sunsets on the water, visiting the Botanical Gardens, and even having an allergic reaction to jerk chicken were even better with these awesome people.

Divide, CO ~ 2.0

Hello again! After the trip to Colorado, it has been nice to relax for a bit before starting back up in school. We worked incredibly hard both days of work. We specifically focused on improving parts of Golden Bell Camp. The first day we got to tear down parts of walls, clear out an old storage room, paint the game room black (it’s going to look like a mine!), and the group I was in painted some more in a staff house after lunch. We worked about 7-8 hour days which honestly wasn’t too bad. Once I started working, I didn’t want to[…]

Divide, CO

Hi y’all! Like I said last week I’m currently in Colorado!!! Yes, that means the beautiful mountains. I can see Pike’s Peak from the window. We left yesterday morning and 9 hours later arrived at our destination! It’s absolutely marvelous out here and I’m excited to share so many pictures. We haven’t started our mission work yet, so we’ve been enjoying a little vaca/tour time before working tomorrow. Next week I’ll post specifically on the mission work and how God is moving here at Golden Bell, but this is a fun-picture post. I hope you enjoy the photos! 🙂 Breckenrigde,[…]

3 Resolutions Everyone Should Have

“Lose weight.” “Go to the gym.” “Floss.” “Save more money.” Those are some of the most popular New Year’s Resolutions I’ve heard, and I can definitely say those have made my list in the past years. While those are not bad things to want to accomplish, I’ve always found myself abandoning those resolutions less than a month into the New Year (and I know I’m not alone in that). 2014 was an interesting year. I learned more about myself than I have in any other season of my life. I went part-time at my high school in the beginning of[…]

Road Trip!

Hey guys! Sorry this is coming at you a day late, but I hope everyone is having a great weekend- it’s the last day of fall break for MNU students and I’ve had a great time. School breaks or even weekends can be a great time to get to know some friends better- by having them come to your hometown or you going to theirs.  It’s so fun to see all of the places in their hometown your friends talk about, meet their family and friends from back home, and get a home cooked (free and delicious) meal! Having friends[…]

an MNU filled weekend

Hey friends! So I just want to brag on our faculty here at MNU for a second. First of all, they are loving, caring, kind, fun, funny, and really want to be a part of your life. I say this because I went to a baseball game this weekend with Lisa Downs and we had a blast! There were also many other faculty members there that made it so fun. I also love that they come and support us at whatever it is we are doing. I always see faculty and staff at sporting events, choir shows and many other events[…]

Motivated and Rejuvenated to Finish the Final 4 Weeks

Spring Break Work & Witness Mission Trip to the Dominican Republic.   A Work and Witness Mission Trip is a no brainer great way to spend time, money, and resources. No regrets have I heard any person say they have after going and serving on one. MNU offers several every single year. And if you don’t think you’d like to do one of those, you can go with churches all around this area, Living Hope Church of the Nazarene in particular is going back to the DR next June!!   And Now, School life, assignments, pages to be read, and[…]

School’s Back in session!

First off, here’s a pic from the wonderful, coveted by some, loved by most, native to the West Coast: In-N-Out Burger:   And then when I got back early, for RA training, one of our RE’s who I will just say is from California himself, and also a lover of In-N-Out, shared with us some wisdom over the Spring semester. Wisdom that was only amplified by the wearing of a Spider-Man costume. Another great opportunity I’ve had hear at MNU is to work in the Office of University Advancement. It’s lovely white collar work for me, a mere assistant: Making[…]
