Words of Wisdom

by Stephany on December 16, 2013

in After College

For days I have been thinking about my future.  What to do after I graduate, should I go ahead and find a job or go straight to do my Phd.  I could do both, but at the same time, I will have to first study  for the GRE.  Fontbonne University does not require Graduate students to take the GRE; hence I have to take it now.  Perhaps you would say to me, go ahead find a job, but at the same time, I wonder what job I will end up having.  I am not even sure if my destiny is to stay in St. Louis or move back to Maryland.  In the mist of all of these  and finishing up my internship. I happened to check my email and found this quote that Sarah Boul, campus minister, sent.  I think it will totally help those of you who are about to graduate or have a major decision to make.

“Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.” (Philippians 4:6-7, MSG)

Snow!! Wished I had classes.

in Academics

On Friday Fontbonne was closed due to the snow we had on Thrusday night.  While most of the Fontbonne students went back to sleep after receiving the cancellation notice.  I was up and awake at 5:30 am in order to go to my internship.  By 6:30 am I was eating my breakfast.  I decided to give myself plenty of time (50 min to be exact) to drive all the way to St. Charles.  After letting my car warm up for 10 min, I started my drive to Breeze Park Lutheran Senior Living.  Surprisingly the roads weren’t that bad, but people were driving carefully.  I arrived at 8:15 am. Luckily, I got out of my internship at 12:50pm. The only thing we did was to decorate the main dining room with Christmas decorations.  The residents loved it!!

by Stephany November 26, 2013

Last week, we made Butternut Squash Macaroni with the first graders at Maplewood Richmond Heights Early Childhood Center. Every single kid loved it!  We had no picky eaters at all.  While I was cooking this recipe with them, I thought about us college students. How hard it is to cook a nutritious meal.  This recipe is [...]
