When you go to chapel three times a week, sometimes it can grow monotonous. I came into college making it my goal that this not happen. One specific thing that is hard is the fact that I am constantly being challenged from the Word, and it can be hard to apply things when you are not only being spiritually challenged three times a week (I am usually challenged one way or another during each class too). Well, I wanted to go over some of my chapel notes, and share some of the funny stories, inspirational quotes and so on. So enjoy and allow yourself to be challenged.

"The heart bone is connected to the mouth bone" -Rev. Craig Hartman

"If you are going to persevere at anything, you must: (2 Samuel 23)
1) Join a cause greater then you
2) Learn to push yourself when you are tired
3) Never see obstacles as insurmountable
4) Don't follow a coward, especially a whole crowd of them
5) Do what is right, and not necessarily what is easy
6) Give God a chance to do something great
7) Get back up" -Dean Childs
Application: Try not to use the word 'busy' for one week, but instead, do the tasks joyfully

"Death is the most certain thing in an uncertain life." -Rev. Bobby Sizemore

"Isn't it wonderful to be loved by The Father?!" -Rev. Stephen Zimmerman

"How to pray for a missionary:
1) Contacts (Colossians 4:3)
2) Clarity (Colossians 4:4)
3) Courage (Ephesians 6:18-20)
4) Conversions (2 Thessalonians 3:1)
5) Care (2 Thessalonians 3:1)
We need to be involved in the air war before we can ever be involved in the ground war. " -Rev. Paul Seger

"What one generation tolerates, the next generation propagates." -Dr. Daniel Anderson

Story told by Jody Stevens: There was a raging storm outside and the mother was tucking her son into bed when he asked, "Mommy, I am scared. Will you sleep in my room tonight?" The mother gave her son a warm hug and said in a soft voice "No honey, I have to sleep in Daddy's room." The little boy sat there for a few moments and then said, "Big Sissy".

Story told by Dean Childs: A little boy asked his mom, "Mommy, what is a lie?". The mother replied, "An abomination to the Lord, and a very present help in time of need."
