Theme Song

by Britney on April 23, 2014

in Uncategorized

If I had a theme song it would be “Alien” by F.L.A.M.E. This would be my theme song because I am not like everyine else. I don’t party too much or drink every weekend and have real life issues that go on. I have a strong faith in God and I am not ashamed of it. It is because of my faith that I cannot do what everyone else does and I have to live above the influence. The song is basically saying that Christians are aliens because they represent Christ and don’t follow the “in” crowd.

Hello again, readers!

It’s so nice to not only be starting a new year, but a whole new selection of classes. Break was most definitely not long enough for a large portion of us I would assume! Even so, it was much needed and well-deserved.

What are your resolutions for 2014? Maybe you only have one? Well, if I could say anything for you to keep in mind, it would be to trust Christ’s plans for you; seriously, let Jesus take the wheel. There is nothing more beautiful than seeing our lives be pieced together day by day with just a little Faith and Thanksgiving for all that you have been given. Even if you seem to always be busy, God is everywhere, ready and willing to converse with you and listen to your concerns.

Let’s be honest – life gets super stressful and it’s as if we can’t do anything about it. Sometimes, we really do have to just accept what’s happening in our lives. Other times, turn to God. Trust Him so that with each day and each moment you put your trust in Him, He will lift more of life’s burdens off of you.

I hope this tidbit of TLC empowers those who are reading! I know it does for me, so remember, God loves you inside and out. He, although maybe unlike others, will always be by your side.

Ta, ta for now!

Second Semester Frenzy

by Tara Jones on December 12, 2013

in Faith

YAY! I am so proud of all of us for finishing first semester successfully! Soooo, now what? What about second semester?

Hmm…

I really want to try my absolute best this upcoming semester. That seems cliché, but I want to quit with the mind games and be serious about my education. I don’t want to fool myself. I just want to flourish and be a wonderful student, you know?

Not only that, but I want to be a better person in general. Sometimes, I feel as if I fail myself in doing so. I’m not saying I’m a bad person at the moment or anything…All I want is to feel comfortable with where I am in my life. How can I do that? PRAY!

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” (Proverbs 4:13)

I feel so guilty already!

My family doesn’t exactly have set holiday plans for Winter break like everybody else.

Rather, we’re spending time bonding with each other because I feel like that’s something we can certainly improve on! The Christmas season isn’t about gifts and gluttony, food and folly. It’s about love.
Thus, that’s what we will try to grow – our love for each other, for the world, and for God.

“For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)

Have a very merry & blessed Christmas!

Taking the Leap

by Alumni Posts October 10, 2013

I have always wanted to be a teacher! Literally since I was 4 years old my goal has never changed. Now I am 25. I have graduated with my BFA (not in education, due to a scholarship), and since then, I have been working on my MAT. Right after my graduation with my BFA, I […]

Feeling Political

by Alumni Posts November 26, 2012

This year got really nasty with comments and jabs at each side of the Presidential debate and that was just on my Facebook among various friends. This year the politics of politics took its toll on my mind and spirit. I consider myself liberal in my views and found myself being called out on several […]

Moving Forward: What Really Matters

by Alumni Posts October 25, 2012

I watched the sun rise this morning (because Lovebug—that’s what I call my baby girl—woke up at THEE crack of dawn). I couldn’t help but appreciate the sound of the birds singing their morning songs as the yellowish-orange glow of the sun filtered through the living room window. Lovebug, content in my arms, was quiet […]

Why Am I still HERE??!!

by Alumni Posts October 15, 2012

In a previous post, I briefly wrote about moving forward. Shortly after posting, I realized that I think, talk and write about this subject quite a bit. It must be pretty important to me, huh? Still, I find myself stuck in the same spot in a few areas of my life and I’m asking, “Why […]

Pinterest and Prayer

by Alumni Posts October 11, 2012

One of the best parts of being a Fontbonne student for me as a Pathways student is that I get to make my own schedule and study hours because my classes are all online. I know this gives me the ability to work, volunteer, and be a mom to my two kiddos. It also gives […]

A Quick Note on Moving Forward

by Alumni Posts September 25, 2012

Each new day is an opportunity to be better than you were the day before. With a sunrise, comes the chance to forgive and release yourself from the past and make a decision to move forward. Too often, we look back and get caught up in the what-ifs. But, if we would just continue to […]
