A Different Thanksgiving

Recently, my family’s holidays have been slightly different than the years past. My father passed away four months ago and my mother four years ago. Therefore, the holidays are more or less what my siblings and I decide to make of them. At the highest rung of the totem pole as the oldest is my brother with his wife and their Read full article »

The Home-stretch

My favorite time of the year is here. Thanksgiving break is over and preparations for Christmas have begun. Trees on campus now have Christmas lights strung on them that light up our already beautiful campus. Some students have even festively decorated their campus residences. There are only three weeks left in the semester, including finals week. It might take a little Read full article »

Heart, Soul, Strength, and Mind

The Little Things

It’s the little things in life. This past Friday I went Black Friday shopping like all the other Americans.  I went purely for the adventure, not because I am a fanatic bargain shopper. However, being among all the other people fighting for good prices and elbowing their way around stores caused me to realize how much importance we place on money Read full article »


I like to think of myself as compassionate, as someone who understands others’ heartache and trials and can share in the joy when their cup runneth over. I had never experienced compassion in my area of study though, until this week. I want to be a teacher. Since 7th grade, I have known I would one day share music with kids, adults, Read full article »

Thanksgiving: A Time to Give Thanks and Eat Too Much

It’s that time of the year again. You know what I mean, time for food, family reunions and a lot of words of affirmation. Yes, friends, Thanksgiving time is here! Being huge into words of affirmation myself, I have been giving and receiving a lot of encouragement over the past week. On my way to class, I have done that thing Read full article »

The Beginning of Wisdom

One of the things that really stand out about CBU is the number of amazing professors who teach here. I have had several good professors over the years, but one of my favorite professors here at CBU is Dr. Nathan Lewis, director of the graduate program in counseling ministry.  He is one of the professors who created my major, Christian behavioral Read full article »

Class Registration

I get to register for classes in a few days. Looking at my degree guide and planning out my schedule can be overwhelming, especially since I am undeclared. There are so many classes that are offered here and it would be nice to learn a little more about random subjects I have heard about, but they may take me off Read full article »

International Celebration Week

This week is International Celebration Week at California Baptist University! It is so nice to see flags from different countries hanging outside of the Yeager Center. I think that it adds to the atmosphere. There are events every school night this week that will celebrate the cultures of international students at California Baptist University. The events seem like they will Read full article »

Homecoming Hoopla

Cotton Candy. Cool Art. Bounce houses. Fireworks. Live music. Nothing beats Homecoming Weekend at CBU. It seems like every year the festivities get more and more extreme. It all kicked off with the Switchfoot concert on Thursday night for me.  I LOVE Switchfoot. They are definitely in my top five favorite bands of all time, and so I was pretty stoked that Read full article »
