- Tis the Season!
Tue, Nov 15, 2011
With the ball gripped tightly to his side, his eyes pier up to his target. He pivots slightly to the left and back to the right to distract the hungry defender. He loses him. The air clears. His posture comes naturally as his elbow raises to a perfect angle, releasing the ball delicately off his [...]
- Bethel Soccer Season, Over
Tue, Nov 15, 2011
We had a pretty successful season overall. We worked together from The very first day of preseason all the way through, and I’m proud of the teams accomplishments. Our goal of reaching NAIA Nationals in Alabama was cut short in our semi-final game against Spring Arbor. This week, our chance of making it to Christian [...]
- Running, really? Ridiculous!
Thu, Oct 20, 2011
Running–it’s a pastime for many, especially here at Bethel. Our track and cross country teams are amazing! For me on the other hand, running has never been my thing. Growing up I danced for fourteen years so I was in shape from that, but then I joined the sport of doing homework. I decided to [...]
- Fall Break Three R’s: Relax, Retreat, Recuperate
Thu, Oct 20, 2011
Over the fall break the men’s soccer team went on a retreat to Bethel Park in Bridgeman, Michigan. It was a time to relax and let go of the stresses that we’ve compiled over the first half of the semester. It also served as a time to grow closer with our teammates by sharing testimonies, [...]
- Sports and Fellowship
Tue, Oct 11, 2011
Last weekend, after our win against Spring Arbor, we all met for dinner. Aarons family decided to host the dinner at their house and it was a great time with some great food! After eating, we just hung out in his basement and played a bunch of games. Some guys played cornhole in the hallway, [...]
- Buying In
Tue, Oct 11, 2011
Every other Thursday I have the privilege to take part in the track team bonding time, even though I don’t practice with them yet. And if you’re not part of the track team, let me just say team bonding is craziness but totally amazing. We call it “Natali Nonsense.” ‘Nuff said. But Coach Natali is [...]
- …”Thank You Jesus!”
Tue, Oct 4, 2011
I was quite distracted this weekend. The soccer team had a game in Mt. Vernon, Ohio, so we drove hours past cornfield after cornfield. I knew I should have studied on the bus rides, but it is way too easy to get caught up in conversation with my teammates and I always end up loosing [...]
- Athletic Spiritual Emphasis
Mon, Sep 19, 2011
Bethel College has a Spiritual Emphasis week every year during the fall. They bring in a speaker who will speak in chapel twice a day during the week. This year we have the privilege of having Adrian Despres at our school. I would love to talk about spiritual emphasis week but I believe it is [...]
- Easter Break!
Mon, Apr 25, 2011
Last Thursday we had a track meet at Anderson University. We actually had nice weather for the entire meet, which was a first for the season. We have our conference meet this upcoming Friday-Saturday at Indiana Wesleyan University. We had Thursday and Friday off for Easter break, so I went home Friday morning. It was [...]
- The home stretch!
Mon, Apr 18, 2011
We have 3 more days of classes, Easter break and then finals week! Before Easter break is my Gerontology final exam today and my case study for Critical Care due Wednesday. And then two exams for Critical Care during finals week. It has been neat to talk to the senior nursing majors who are graduating in [...]
- Eight more days of school!
Sun, Apr 10, 2011
There are 8 days of school left until Easter break (April 21 – April 24) and I have been counting down for some time now. Between now and Easter break I have a short to-do list to finish: Critical Care Case Study Critical Care exam 2 Critical Care clinical days Gerontology exam/final Gerontology Life History [...]
- Critical Care, Track, and Summer Plans!
Fri, Mar 25, 2011
It is crazy that we have had 3 weeks of school since Spring Break and we only have three and a half weeks until Easter Break! My past three weeks have been mostly dominated by Critical Care. We have been learning A LOT in lectures and have been doing clinicals. Yesterday I observed in the [...]
- Spring Break is Here!!
Thu, Feb 24, 2011
Spring Break has arrived! I had my maternity final yesterday morning and New Testament class last night and now I’m on Spring Break! The final went alright, but probably not as well as I hoped after studying for it all day Tuesday. Oh, and the women’s track team won Christian Nationals this weekend at Indiana [...]
- Behind the Scenes- Sr. High Camp (3)
Mon, Feb 14, 2011
At one of our ‘sessions,’ students declared their fears: Regret Excuses Reputation Loneliness These were the most consistent fears proclaimed. I declared my fear, too: Losing what is comfortable. I remember realizing how freeing it is to declare what is fearful in a corporate, confessional setting. It takes the enemy’s power away from the fear and [...]
- Running & Babies!
Sun, Feb 13, 2011
Yesterday was our final indoor track meet of the season before Christian Nationals, which are next weekend at Indiana Wesleyan University. Bethel did very well in the meet yesterday – we were very competitive and competed really well. I ran the 3k and it went alright, but I was pretty tired. Nursing is going really [...]
- Track Meet at DePauw
Sun, Feb 6, 2011
We raced at DePauw in Greencastle, Indiana yesterday and it went pretty well. We raced against some schools that we never see throughout the season. The only school that was there that is in our conference was Marian. We were scheduled to leave school at 6 a.m., but the buses were a little late in [...]
- Chapel, OB & Track
Sun, Jan 30, 2011
This week (like every other week) has flown by! It was World Christian Action Conference week, which means we have chapel every day and there are two optional night chapels. We had a couple different speakers that were all pretty good, but my favorite was Caleb Bislow who was from Kingdom Building Ministries. You can [...]
- Winter Break!
Thu, Jan 6, 2011
Last semester flew by! People always told me that college goes by so fast and I never really believed them – before I experienced it, that is. It feels like moving into my apartment was just yesterday, but in reality it was way back in August and it is already January!! I am pretty pleased [...]
- Football Season
Wed, Dec 1, 2010
So while the NFL and college football has been going on, us guys here on campus have had our own league. The Super Bowl equivalent? Oakwood vs. Manges. Oakwood-Slater Hall is the freshmen guys dorm. Manges is the sophomore guys dorm. Each year, they play for the Cheap Tin Jug: So here is the awesome [...]
- Swishing to a New Season
Wed, Nov 17, 2010
The second the ball leaves my fingertips, I pray it will go in. My pulse is fast, and my heart is in my throat. But it’s not until the ball swishes through the net that I can sigh in relief. It’s that time of year again. The time where students gather a half hour before [...]
