April is typically known as the month of pranks. I may not be most ambitious when it comes to playing pranks, but I am certainly keeping busy as the semester comes to a close. In this video, learn about what it’s like to be a senior with one month left till graduation. From job plans to road trips to random acting gigs, the month of April was certainly full of adventure!
How many times have you heard or declared this phrase? Yet, how many times have we seriously thought about what that means? As an occupational safety professional, I can say that I frequently think about the specifics of having a safe trip, as we want all of our employees to travel safely. Naturally, I want the same for you. Now that summer has arrived, Regent students will drive home to families, take cross-country road trips and study across the country and globe. In this post, I want to share some tips from a National Safety Council Safety and Health Fact Sheet, on preparing for your next getaway. Read more
11:00 am. Race day. I tighten the laces of my running shoes and try to keep my nerves under control. Breathe. I ran track in high school and am no stranger to road races, so this should be easy. A single mile. No need to set a personal record. I have one goal: keep track of a single seven-year-old…in a crowd of thousands. Piece of cake, right? Read more
Wow! I’m glad I threw out my preconceived notions of what a short-term mission trip is supposed to look like, because God completely blew my mind! I had such a great experience that I don’t even know where to begin.
I guess the beginning is the best. We arrived tired, yet excited in New York City knowing that we would unpack, have dinner and then head to the streets of New York for homeless ministry. Our group of about 50 was broken up into several different teams. My team, number three, we named “Benny and the Jets,” first went to a homeless shelter to give out supplies and pray with people.
There, I met a man who told me his story. Read more
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. - Psalm 23:5
When I was going through a very difficult time in my life, my mom mailed me the book, A Table in the Presence: The Dramatic Account of How a U.S. Marine Battalion Experienced God’s Presence Amidst the Chaos of the War in Iraq, by Navy Lieutenant Carey H. Cash. The book shares details of God’s intervention into the mission of the First Battalion, Fifth Marine Regiment during its 2003 advance into Iraq from Kuwait by the battalion’s chaplain, . It’s simply an amazing testimony of God’s love, power, and sovereignty. Read more
What’s that noise? I was gently cycling on a smooth road. Suddenly, I heard a disturbing noise coming from the rear wheel of my mountain bike. This sound was unfamiliar, different from when a blade of grass or twig was tangled in the mechanism. I stopped quickly and had a look. It was pretty obvious – one of my spokes had broken! I bike very frequently, I’ve been on many adventurous trails, zipped over many rocks, and navigated through countless challenging valleys. The spokes were always fine. But now, suddenly, my bike’s wheel was experiencing what engineer’s call “metal fatigue.”
What do you do with a broken spoke? It would be easy to just bend the spoke out of the way so it wouldn’t make noise every time the wheel turned. I could continue riding, and wouldn’t even notice that the wheel had one-less spoke. But I knew I wouldn’t be able to jump over obstacles or ride over large rocks, because then even more spokes would break. If I carried on riding, one spoke after another would fail and eventually the whole wheel would come off. Read more

Seize the moment out of your graduation day to celebrate the accomplishment of your dream.
