Best residence life memory from my college days

ResLife at Moody was awesome! I was in a small group of 10 female RAs who pretty much served as my family. We were utterly ridiculous and had a blast chatting late at night, going on retreats, playing (friendly) pranks on our residents, praying together, and encouraging each other in a pursuit of holiness. Some of my favorite memories happened when we would do a yearly tradition of going on a group GYROFAD (get your roommate or friend a date) and would dress up in ridiculous outfits and go bowling or to karaoke, or roam the streets of Chicago.

 

Favorite way to spend a Saturday

Sleep in, meet up with friends for breakfast, thrift, explore a new place, coffee shop hop, and end it with going out to dinner and a movie.

 

Plans for the upcoming year

My prayer and hope for this year is to learn! To learn more about Covenant, the students, Andreas, and the ways in which I can best encourage, support, challenge, and serve this community.

 

Favorite recreational activities

I love just hanging out with friends, reading and discussing theology, singing and playing music, doing art projects, baking, going to a classic car show, or simply watching a good movie.

 

What residents can expect

They can expect to be welcomed into a community that seeks to glorify God and love others well. They can expect to experience hospitality and a genuine desire to grow as the body of Christ through mentoring and discipleship, community events, and authentic relationships.

 

Best thing about my job

I love academia and getting to walk alongside students as they go through this transformational experience called college. I enjoy getting to be a part of students' lives as they grow more deeply in their relationship with God and image him more profoundly. I love being a learner among learners, attending and discussing lectures, going to college events and getting to encourage, support, and challenge students as they learn how to live out their faith more fully. I relish getting to practice hospitality and open my space for students to relax, eat good food, grow in community, and experience the gospel enacted.
