Empty Pockets, Anyone?

By | June 2nd, 2017|Categories: How to Adult|Comments Off on Empty Pockets, Anyone?

I’m going to prove that I’m psychic...Are you ready? You’re in college, and you have this nasty problem of not being able to buy everything that you want. (Yeah, I’m that good.) But not only do I know your problems, I also know a few solutions. Perhaps you would love to go to APEX, but the money just isn’t in your piggy bank; maybe you’re all signed up, ready to go, and stressing about your airfare tickets; or maybe coming to APEX means giving up other luxuries like a ferrari or something a little less pricey than that.

Meet Avery " Intro! - Jellyman, Offspring,  Offspring, Jellyman" - Finding Nemo While standing in the lunch food line during  APEX 2016, I struck up a conversation with a young lady named Avery Ternberg.

You [...]

If so, then you and I apparently missed something in Adulthood 101. There’s a socially acceptable limit [...]

Missions: Ecuador

By | May 10th, 2017|Categories: How to Student, Unbound Stories|Comments Off on Missions: Ecuador

I am so excited! I’m even more excited than I am for APEX…if that’s possible. I feel like sometimes I just can’t stop smiling. What is the reason for my anticipation? On Friday, May 12 at 11:30 A.M., I am hopping on a plane and racing off with 17 other team members for the Unbound Ecuador Mission Trip through Global Encounters. A trip filled with ministry, new friendships, and lots of energetic kids. Very soon, I will be packing my suitcases tightly filled with team supplies of brightly-colored bandanas, craft jewels, beach balls, giant erasers, and a couple inflatable alligators. [...]
