Operation Spread Christmas Joy

The concept of giving is emphasized a lot throughout the holidays, yet often there is an idea of giving with the expectation of receiving something in return. One of the most life-altering lessons that I have ever learned was how to prioritize blessing others and expect nothing in return.

The stickers that adorned each box of cinnamon rolls that we shared during the holidays to bless others, changed designs on a yearly basis – courtesy of my mom and aunt’s world-renowned graphic design skills. In this one from 2017, they went for a festive polka dot combination. Photo by Lori Tippett

True Meaning of Easter

As we move into the Easter weekend, it’s also a time when Missouri Baptist University students are wrapping up final projects and preparing for final exams. Amid the stress that follows every college student this time of year, it’s an important opportunity to reflect on the true meaning of Easter, when Jesus Christ died for our sins and rose from the grave. Today’s blogs ask students to reflect on key questions they ponder at this most important time on the Christian calendar.

Changing Perspective, Choosing Cheer

Switching from field hockey to the cheer mat, Jennifer Marsh, MBU cheerleading assistant coach, discovered a new love that would bring her to her alma mater to lead the cheerleading squad she was once a member of. Along the way, Marsh discovered she’s also able to relate Christ to the sport and serve as an example to her athletes. 

Jennifer Marsh, a Spartan cheerleader from 2009-13, was part of the first team to advance to the National Cheerleaders Association Nationals in MBU history. Marsh has served as assistant coach for nearly two years and is fulfilled by the growth she can foster on the mat and personally for the members of the squad.     Photo by Madelyn Shotton

Having a Child at 16 Years Old

Being a young mother at the age of 16, barely old enough to drive, comes with a lot of stress and responsibilities. Learning how to cope with judgment from people close to you will either build your faith or break it.
