Student Lock-in this Friday!

This weekend is the Student Lock-In! If you are a current Rhema student, come to the NRC this Friday, February 10, for a fun night of:


You will be on either Team Dusty or Team Christy to battle it out over:

  • Dodgeball
  • Foursquare
  • Sardines
  • Tic Tac Toe (relay style)
  • Giant piñata



Team Dusty


Team Christy










I could keep going, but trust me! It’s going to be fun! Did I mention there will also be table top games such as UNO? (Are you ready for Friday to be here yet?)

Dusty is making homemade chili for dinner, and there will be biscuits and gravy for breakfast.

The student life crew is asking for students to bring snacks and drinks for the rest of the night.

Also, you will need to bring socks if you want to skate (Oh yeah! Did I mention we’ll be skating?), and a pillow/blanket for the movie area.

We hope to see you this Friday! It will be a great way to make new friends, have some fun, and kick off the weekend.

P.S. For the older Rhema students, there will be coffee. If you can make it all night, that’s okay.  Join us for as long as possible! 

Laundry Mat Fun

Hanging out at the laundry mat with my friend Brittany. 

So cool to be able to talk with the customers and get to know them. 

Working for a ministry is a great, but I miss being with the general public. There’s less chance of a facade in conversation. 

Oh! I’m doing great! Praise the Lord!

If this is really the case, that’s awesome.

Most Christians, though, are less likely to be real because looking spiritual is highly praised. 

For me, I don’t care about much about keeping up appearances. No one buys that balogna anyway. 

Back to the laundry mat…

It’s cool to see where Brittany works. She’s good at her job and the customers talk with her a lot. 

Plus, this is the nicest laundry mat I’ve ever seen! 

Anyway, it’s time for me to sign off and get back to hanging out!

A happy change

Once again, my Saturday was awesome. 

I went to Joplin to watch the Rhema basketball teams play in the last games of a tournament. 

Boys came in 5th place and girls came in 3rd place. 

The scenery is beautiful between Tulsa and Joplin. This is my first time living in the Midwest, so everything about this place is part of the adventure.

My friend Holly and I rode together to the tournament and it was fun to go on a mini road trip. 

We ate lunch at a local barbecue place, which was my first time eating barbecue since moving. How did I go that long without it?!? 

I digress…

This past week’s been a lot of fun because it’s the first time in a while that I’ve had something going on everyday. 

I’m just taking things one day at a time and soaking up all of these experiences. 

If I want to do something, I give it a shot. What can it hurt?

If I want to get to know someone, I stick out my hand and introduce myself. What can it hurt?

Sure, I’m still my awkward, goofy, and cheesy self but I’m starting to embrace it more and more. 

Some days are harder than others. Some days I miss home. 

For the most part, though, I’m simply grateful to be in Tulsa. Being a student at Rhema, seeing faith in action is changing me. 

And I am happy about this change. 

My favorite day

I’m finally watching The Fifth Wave!

At the movies with my friend Holly. We’ve been hanging out all afternoon. 

I studied for school, paid some bills, and now I’m watching a movie!

Saturdays are my favorite. 

I know this post is short, but I didn’t have a chance to blog before dinner. 

Future Rockstar?

I spent the afternoon wandering around the mall with my friend Nichole. 

There were a TON of people at Woodland Hills Mall! I even got stuck in some traffic. This is the first time I’ve sat in traffic since moving. 

It was fun to window shop, though, and I even rode a hover board.

Not sure I’m ready for a future of hover boarding…it’s just better for me to stay on the ground. 

Nichole and I then drove over to Mardel, a Christian bookstore. Our friend Andrew lives close to there, so he joined us. 

The three of us talked  about books and had a great time getting to know each other more. 

Andrew wanted to go into The Guitar Store. He showed us around and played a Fender Strat. 

I’ve always wanted to play the guitar, but today Andrew encouraged me to play  a bass guitar. 

I tried one out and it really fits me much better than a regular guitar!

I almost bought one, too! (It was only $16o.)

Don’t worry. I fought the impulse. 

This is not a decision to make on a whim, but it got me excited about learning how to play again. 

Who knows? Maybe you’re following the blog of a future rockstar? 


Future rockstar or not, my Saturday was awesome. It was fun to hang out with friends. 

Sundays are Fun Days

I had a wonderful Sunday!

Pastor Hagin was on fire and we even had a healing service. Many people were set free and it was cool to see their lives transformed. 

Then Pastor Yoder taught on the Holy Spirit and speaking in tongues at the evening service. 

I met a group of first and second year students as well. We all went out to Buffalo Wild Wings to watch a football game. (The guys watched while the girls talked.)

I even got to talk with my family via FaceTime! 

Did I mention my nap? 

All in all, it was a good day. Classes start tomorrow and I can’t wait. 

My backpack is ready. My clothes are picked out. 

It’s time to get this party started!
