Sharing church conference experiences

This past weekend I went to a church conference called SDYC. A lot of kids from Hillsboro go every year, and this was my first time going along. The things I experienced there were amazing, and I feel like having this outlet is a great way to share what God is doing in so many lives. The way the conference […]

Haunted house experience a first

Halloween is here! This is my favorite time of year. Scary movies have forever been my thing, but I’ve always kept the monsters in the T.V. screen. This year I finally had the chance to live it. I attended my first haunted house this fall! I’ve been longing for this experience for a few years now, but I could never […]

Writer deals with inevitable block

Writer’s block; something that every writer in history has had to struggle with and try to overcome. The official definition of this awful time when your brain turns to mush is “when a writer loses the ability to produce new work, or experiences a creative slowdown”. Well here I am on this Sunday afternoon, the day before I need to […]

Understanding comes from fascination

Psychology and mental health has always been something that’s interested me. I haven’t taken any classes on it or really have any clue how anything works, but the mind fascinates me.

Seeing world through local lens

For a small-town girl like me, traveling and experiencing new things doesn’t happen every day, and I definitely have some wanderlust.

Summer is a beautiful time of year and I am making the most of it. In years past, keeping busy during break can sometimes be a challenge, with the […]

HHS journalists best in class

At the beginning of this month, my journalism class of five girls went to KU to compete in state journalism through the Kansas State Press Association. We had all made it to state after we sent in our regional works. I was so excited when I found out we all made it. I had never been to state in anything […]

Outcry concert was an inspiring event

Last Friday, I attended my first concert. I went to Outcry with my youth group, which is a few worship bands that tour together and they came to Wichita. I wasn’t familiar with any of the bands, but I came out loving their songs and have been listening since. I had such a great time there. Most of my friends […]

Love your animals as humanly as possible

I love animals. They are so pure and amazing and I am so glad they are on this earth. There are very few animals I don’t find to be adorable. Last week on the 20th was national “love your pet day,” and I was inspired to talk about that. I have one dog. She has been my only pet since […]

Looking back on the year 2017

The year 2017 has ended and 2018 has begun. Quite a mixture of positive and negative things happened this past year, and many trends that made it big. From music to movies to fashion, every year has its popular things, and 2017 did not disappoint in that department. This year I watched some amazing movies. One of my favorites was […]
