Join me in North Carolina on an actual film set! We were able to close a road and film in a shutdown theater. These are just some of the amazing perks of being a film graduate at Regent University.

Take Me Out to the Ball Game

No Comments Community, School

In our final episode of Regent Local, we went to a Norfolk Tides baseball game with a few of our fellow students. We cheered on the Norfolk Tides during their two games, talked to a few Virginia Beach locals and even participated in a “Build a Burger” game in between games. What a great way to end the Regent Local season. Thanks for watching!

Part 2 – Staying Together: Fun and Fellowship at a NYC Alumni Dinner

No Comments Community, School

Regent University - fountainRead Part 1 here.

My husband and I recently had the wonderful opportunity to attend Regent University’s Midtown Meet and Greet at the Salmon River Restaurant in New York City. It’s a place where RU leaders from Virginia and New York, along with alumni, guests, and current students, can mingle, dine, reminisce, catch up, discuss new happenings, network and stay connected. At this year’s event, I was able to talk with several Regent “family members” and friends during and after dinner.

When asked the following three questions,

  1. How would you describe your experiences at Regent University?
  2. How have you used the knowledge that you obtained by attending Regent University to impact your peers and the world for Jesus Christ?
  3. Is there anything that you would like to share with current and prospective students to inspire/empower them?

Here’s what some of our RU colleagues had to say: Read more

Regent’s Hometown – Virginia Beach, VA

No Comments Community, School

Going to college in a beach town was one of the best decisions I have made. There is so much to do in Virginia Beach that we had to make another episode featuring Regent’s hometown. There are countless mini golf courses, ice cream shops, fishing spots, and restaurants along the boardwalk and surrounding streets. In this episode of Regent Local, John and I held a friendly competition as we explored more of the fun attractions the Oceanfront has to offer.

Summer Jobs: Finding My Niche

No Comments Work

Regent UNiversity - StudentThe weather in Virginia Beach may have taken a while to catch up, but it is finally summertime! The finals are done, half of my friends are gone, and I am now on that nine to five work schedule. I currently work in undergraduate admissions where I have worked for about two and a half years now. Last summer I worked as a transcript coordinator. This involved a lot of detail-oriented work and data entry. It was a great start and really helped me get to know my coworkers in the office.

Promised Land

No Comments Community, Home

Regent University - Campus“The land, through which we have gone to spy it out, is a land that devours its inhabitants, and all the people that we saw in it are of great height. Numbers 13:32

 Chief Rabbi Shlomo Riskin of Efrat in the West Bank gives a brilliant teaching on this portion of scripture. For those not familiar, we are coming upon the story of Moses commanding a group of 12 to scout out the Promised Land. Upon returning from the 40-day journey, the scouts come back with an awesome report of the land’s produce, but 10 of the 12 give a very pessimistic and fearful report of the inhabitants. Read more

The Path to Meeting God

No Comments Church

Regent University - Campus“Then [Elijah] was afraid… and ran for his life to Beersheba… and left his servant there. But he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness… and asked that he might die…. And behold an angel touched him and said to him, “Arise and eat.” And he looked, and behold, there was at his head a cake baked on hot stones, and a jar of water… And the angel of the Lord came again a second time and said, “Arise and eat, for the journey is too great for you.” And he arose and ate and drank, and went in the strength of that food forty days and forty nights to Horeb, the mount of God.” – 1 Kings 19: 3-8

We often focus on how God spoke to Elijah in a still small voice, but we often neglect the journey and preparation preceding him hearing God’s voice. Read more

Operating from a State of Peace

Regent Univeristy - Campus“You will find peace not by trying to escape your problems, but by confronting them courageously. You will find peace not in denial, but in victory.” – J. Donald Walters

 After participating in commencement, which was a historic moment for the class of 2013, I received a separation notice from a promising position in the financial industry because of an unwise decision. It was shocking at first; however, I admitted to my mistake and learned from it. Instead of worrying about not having a job, I took the opportunity to find peace within my soul and evaluate my passion and purpose in life. Read more

They Are Watching

No Comments Work

Regent Univeristy - ComputerTechnology has allowed employers to monitor the actions of their employees in almost all work settings. Funny thing is, even though employees are aware that they are being watched, they sometimes forget and get caught in an act that leads them to lose their jobs.

This same concept is applied to our Christian lives. Jesus said we are the “light of the world” in Matthew 5:14. When we accept Christ in our lives, we immediately become the bodies that He can use and the voices through whom He can speak. He needs us to realize that we are the only visual representations of Him in this world. People around us in church or temple settings start watching us even more closely than before. There are several things I think we have to do when we become the “light of the world:”

1 Create a visual reminder that you are being watched by everyone.

2 Start each day with God and ask Him to monitor your reactions throughout the day.

3  Surrender your words to the authority of Jesus Christ, so that He can help you to think before you speak.

4 Don’t live to please people; live to please God, so that your actions match His standards.

These are not foolproof methods, but they are ways to get started. Like the employees who sometimes forget that their actions are being monitored, sometimes we forget that we are being watched. So, we must ask God to assist us through the power of the Holy Spirit. No one is perfect, but trying for perfection through God’s words can bring you very close.
