For the times when you need some words of wisdom, a change in tunes on the way to class, or maybe some inspiration to get your homework done–podcasts are the way to go. If you find yourself needing to feel Jesus in ways other than Hillsong or Matt Maher, here are a few alternatives to your typical playlist.

These are all available on Spotify and most are available on their own websites!

1. "For the Love" with Jen Hatmaker Podcast

This hilarious and relatable podcast stars Best selling author and HGTV's Jen Hatmaker while she invites you to drop by and listen to her while she chats about all things love and goodness.

2. "The BadChristian Podcast"

Three goons (Matt, Toby, and Joey) are here for you while they discuss some pretty controversial topics and some personal issues that you might come across as a college student! They also use some ~mature~ language and special guests, so no doubt you'll have something in common with this podcast.

3. "Are You Real?"

This is the ultimate grace-filled podcast that tells the tale of men and women who have walked different paths to live out Christ's calling in their lives. If you're looking for real people with real hearts looking for our real God, this podcast will be perfect for some encouragement and support for your journey.

4. "The Young Life Podcast"

Most likely, you've heard of YoungLife, as a member of the college life, and who identifies as a Christian. This is a pretty rad podcast that allows you to see the way that Jesus is leading a revolutionary ministry for young faithful pioneers, just like you.

5. "Free Mustard Seeds"

Fr. Patrick Gonyeau, a priest from Detroit, works to share the word of God to individuals all over the world. He believes so strongly that there is no greater joy than that of the salvation and joy of Christ.

6. "Conversations with John + Lisa Bevere"

Throughout this podcast, John and Lisa hope to challenge and position you for the best and most successful life in Christ. If you're a forward thinker, this is a great podcast for you.

7. "On The Frontier: A Young Life Podcast"

The hope of this podcast is that your time listening to this podcast will update you with innovation, creativity, and lessons from those on the journey with you.

8. "The Jesus Calling Podcast"

The podcast that pairs to the Devotional, "Jesus Calling" reveals the stories of millions who have experienced the power of our Lord.

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.

Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
