Getting Ready for the Fall

It's almost time for pumpkins, leaves, and cool weather! This is everything to look forward to this fall.

Getting Ready for the Fall

The fall is a time of year that has always brought me so much happiness. School is starting to get back to full swing, the weather is cooling down, leaves are changing, among so many other things. This year especially as the days begin to blend I think the fall will be a great change bringing some new activities. Here are some reasons I can't wait for this season to be in full swing!

1) Pumpkin. Need I say more. Now that the cooler weather is upon us all my favorite coffee spots have put out new seasonal flavors and treats. I may have been the first one in line at Starbucks to get a pumpkin coffee, or at Dunkin' for apple cider donuts. If you are into coffee, definitely get out and try some new flavors. It is a great way to change up your routine and you may find your new favorite coffee order.

2) This year especially I can't wait to start wearing new fall fashion. This summer has been so hot it will be a dream when we can put on sweaters and boots. I am excited to see what new trends come out of this fall whether it be cute skirts, oversized cardigans, or something else. Fall outfits are always so cozy and cute it will be a nice change from the heat.

3) With the weather cooling down means it will also be time to hit the apple orchard soon! Nothing is better than going apple picking at the beginning of the fall. It always makes for a super fun day with plenty of photo-ops! On top of that the apples you get from an orchard always seem to taste better than the ones from the store.

4) The end of the year also means that the holidays are coming up. Especially now while our world faces crisis I am excited for the joy that this time of year can bring. Halloween is right around the corner and Thanksgiving and Christmas soon after. Decorating for these days is always so fun and can bring some cheer into a room that may have felt the same since March. All and all spending time with friends and family for the holidays will be a joyful change.

5) One last thing to look forward to this fall is the changing of the leaves. Though it is something so simple fall foliage makes the world look so much more beautiful. I always love looking out at all the colors in the trees and on the fallen leaves. It's another great opportunity for photos too!

The fall will be filled with cozy outfits, a new routine, and plenty of places to take great pictures! This list just grazes the surface of exciting things coming with the new season. Grab some starbucks and your favorite flannel and get excited!

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

Emma Smith
  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.

Sex And The Church

A letter to fellow believers.

Amanda Hayes
  • I know many of you just read that title and thought it was scandalous to see something so “risque” in the same setting as something holy. Well guess what – sex is part of that. Everyone seems to think they are separate, which makes since because most people treat them as though they are complete polar opposites. Shall we think this through?

Who created the Church body? God. Who created the body? Also God. If we know God to be the creator of all things, we cannot leave sex out of that equation. God created sex, people! Praise Him! Like all great things, the world has twisted and perverted it. The world has stained it so badly that even many church congregations see it only as stained and keep quiet about that part of God’s word. Many people know that God told Adam and Eve to “be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:28), but a lot of people overlook the entirety of Song of Solomon. The entire book is dedicated to telling of the love and sex between man and wife. God blessed us with the gift of intimacy, one to be shared between husband and wife. Church if we teach of sex as the blessing that it is, more people will start treating it as such. If we stop viewing sex as this unspeakable act, the temptation would be lessened. With the fall of man, humans naturally desire things they should not have. So if more people speak of it with gladness and praise, and do not hide it in the darkness as if it were vile, fewer people would be drawn to it for the wrong reasons. More people would appreciate it for what it is: a gift from God.
