The Spiritual Disciplines: Practices for Followers of Jesus

The Spiritual Disciplines: Practices for Followers of Jesus

So, what really are the spiritual disciplines? They are not a to-do list, but rather a guide of how you can mature in your life as a follower of Christ. They're practices and habits. They can usher you into an intimate walk with Jesus. They aide you in becoming more like Christ. They're not practices just for the spiritually mature, nor are they just for new believers. They are life changing and they are necessary, and I hope to spend the rest of my life learning more about them. 

An Honest Look at Jeremiah 29:11

An Honest Look at Jeremiah 29:11

I think I had Jeremiah 29:11 memorized before I was even a Christian. I met Jesus after my dad battled (and beat) cancer, so during that season, both strangers and friends were quick to share Jeremiah 29:11 with me. At the time, I appreciated the little token of hope that came with the verse, and genuinely held onto what it seems to promise when it stands alone. But now, I know that there's a lot more to Jeremiah 29:11 than what our culture has diminished it to. I know that might come as a shock to some of you, but fret not, friends.

Profound Professors: Madame Man-Bourdon

Profound Professors: Madame Man-Bourdon

Madame Man-Bourdon teaches her classes with enthusiasm, energy, and humor. I'm currently in my second semester of French, which is part of the Modern Languages department, and I cannot think of a day in her class where I haven't laughed at least once. Loving, kind, and intelligent are only a few words that describe this MC professor.

Darkness//Light

Darkness//Light

I experienced breathtaking imagery of Jesus' death and resurrection a year ago at Saint Martin in the Fields at 5:15 AM. On a cold and quiet London morning, I entered a church which was in total darkness and was handed an unlit candle. As the service commenced, the Gospel unfolded beautifully through the metaphor of darkness and light.

Spring break is here for Mississippi College, and I, for one, am incredibly excited. The demands of school, work, relationships, and extracurriculars have completely worn me out. On most days, I feel like I need twenty-four more hours in each day.
