A Collection of MC Memories

A Collection of MC Memories

As the semester is ending and graduation is fast approaching, another class of seniors is about to graduate. We will be leaving with a diploma and our own set of experiences that we collected during our time here, and today, I want to share some of those experiences. The stories that follow come from a handful of seniors that were kind enough to share one or two of their favorite memories from their time at MC. And, as everyone's MC experience is different, these stories are as diverse as the students that shared them.

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.

As we're about to enter a new year, the Choctawk team wanted to take a second to look back on all we've published this year. So, here are our top ten blogs of 2016. 

Home for the Holidays: Those Inevitable Questions

Home for the Holidays: Those Inevitable Questions

It's that time of the year again. The temperature is dropping and we all have trees in our living rooms and we're mentally preparing ourselves to be asked a million questions by all of our relatives. You know, those questions...

You Won't Regret it: Get to Know Your Teachers & Counselors

You Won't Regret it: Get to Know Your Teachers & Counselors

 would be lying if I said that I miss high school, but I'd also be lying if I said that I didn't miss some of my teachers. I went to a small(ish) school, so after a while, I knew the names of most of the teachers and eventually, they knew my name too. It would have been easy for me to go through my time at Gulf Shores High School without getting to know any of the teachers or staff members, but thankfully, that didn't happen. Getting to know my teachers, and letting them get to know me, is the best decision I made in high school. Let me tell you why.

How to Handle Conflict

How to Handle Conflict

I used to be afraid of conflict and would run and hide from it anytime it came around. I feared that if there was conflict, and that conflict was addressed, the relationship would break and/or never be the same. But, I was wrong. The truth is that conflict is normal, healthy, and (depending on what the conflict is over) can be easily dissolved. I've come to a place where I no longer fear conflict, but can welcome it, address it, and move on from it. I'm hoping that through mine and Emma's advice, you'll begin to come to that place too.

Now What?

Now What?

So, now what? What are you supposed to do now that Welcome Week is over, you've settled into all your classes, and college has become normal? Don't worry, because I've got some suggestions. 

The Art of Boundaries

The Art of Boundaries

When God made us, He didn't make us able to do all the things all the time. He made us as humans, people who bare His image, but are not Him. We are not limitless, we are not able to meet everyone's needs, we are not perfect. When I realized that I'm not invincible--that I have natural-born limits--I knew that something had to change. I needed Jesus to show me how to love myself well in the midst of a chaotic season. And He did. 

Friends, let's talk about boundaries.
