Basic Christian Moves

As Christians, we do things and have pet peeves that are different from the rest of the world.

Here are a few:

1. Having Bible studies at Starbucks because we love Jesus, a latte.

And you can not forget to post a picture of it with a caption of the verse you read and what God showed you through it.

2. Telling your accountability partner, "He told me he was studying Proverbs 31, it is obviously him saying that he wants to marry me."

Do not deny it, we all know that each of us has thought it.

3. Not being able to say "YOLO" because Jesus rose from the dead.

And then you correct someone every time they say it.

4. Creeping on his Instagram and finding a picture of him at church camp or a Bible verse, "OMG Yes he loves Jesus!"

Then (possibly) screenshot it and send it to your best friend so she can see.

5. There is no bread like Communion bread.

It might be the best because it is second service and you are starving, but it doesn't matter.

6. Jesus can see right through your Instagram filtered selfie with a Bible verse.

No comment needed, we have all seen it.

7. Wanting Chickfila on a Sunday.

"Let's go to Chickfila!" ...oh wait, it is Sunday.

8. Squeezing the next person's hand when you are done praying so they know it is their turn.

Its an known sign, when you are squeezed you speak.

9. Getting beside your crush in group prayer so you get an excuse to hold his hand.

Admit it, you have done it a time before.

10. That exciting feeling you get when someone asks you to share your testimony.

Non-Christians don't understand the joy that comes to your heart when someone asks you share, or even why you are so joyful. It is our job to share that joy through our testimonies so that they might receive the same joy.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
