What is Your Why? Part 2

What’s your reason for waking up every day and doing what you do? What is your drive to be better at what you do? What is your purpose each day? These are the questions that inspire today’s blog, generated by media students at MBU, the second of two blogs on this topic.

The Damage Done By A Broken Home

As a young child, seeing your parents split up never really hits you until you get older and you realize all the damage it has done to you, but as time goes along you learn to accept that you can’t fix a broken home.

The effects of growing up in a divorced household are eternal. Despite the scars of witnessing her parents’ divorce at 6 years old, junior Alexia Duncan has learned to move forward in accepting that God is ultimately in control, and He is with us through every battle.

CA-2-The Lou

No. I don’t get homesick, even though I am nearly 2,000 miles from my hometown of Turlock, California. In fact, St. Louis reminds me of California in a weird way. Nothing is the same between the Midwest and the West Coast, but the love I have for them individually is identical.

The view from this little known spot along the California coast, called Sunset Beach and located 40 minutes north of Monterey, is incredible and one of a kind, but somehow the prairie views and rolling hills of the Midwest have grown on me, too. And the Arch is certainly something to behold.

How to Juggle

Like keeping several balls in the air similar to a circus juggler, our lives involve keeping several activities managed all at the same time. So, how do we do this without letting something fall through? How do we maintain all that we do while also maintaining a level of excellence?

What Happens After Graduation?

It’s a question that has been presented to college students for as long as there have been colleges: What do you plan to do with your life after you graduate? And, of course, it is a difficult question to answer because, when it’s all said and done, we often do not know exactly what we will do upon graduation.
