Column: On having faith
There are lots of things in life that are illogical and take a bit of believing in. We believe that people will change their lives for the better and we hope that, against all the odds, our sports teams will pull through and win--which happens sometimes. We hope that things will always...

Column: With glory moments come challenges
You, my dearest readers, have heard all of the wonderful things about exchange, and it's been a lot of fun writing about those parts. However, that's not the entirety of my exchange experience. I have had the most exhilarating moments of my life in the past nine months, but these...

Column: Christianity and "being cool"
One of the benefits of having a father who has traveled around a little bit is the stories. Unfortunately, I haven't received quite as many of them as I have hoped during my time abroad, so my dad unknowingly gave me an excellent Easter present when he sent me one recently. Many years...

Column: Finding home in two parts of the world
It was approximately one year ago that I found out that I was going to a little town called Vojens in Denmark, and would be attending school in Haderslev. The morning I got the email from my counselor in Denmark, I excitedly Googled the town and found out that Vojens was known for...

Communication errors and conversations
If you have ever read any of my articles before, you can probably tell that I am quite particular with how I phrase things. Now, in another country, I am learning that communication can be a bit more complicated when you are with people who aren't native speakers of English, despite...

What kind of bible vibes do you have?
There are some experiences that give people stereotypes or affect how others view them. In the U.S., those lines were clearly defined to me. However, in this different culture, I have started to realize that it's less black and white and based more on other factors than society's...

I have a ‘Servant’s Heart’ label, and I’m proud of it
I’ll never forget the first time that I was told I have a servant’s heart. I was holding back tears; I had worked my butt off, and my dream wasn’t going to come true. Instead, I was told that I would be good at another type of work – that I definitely know that I am not a...

Saying goodbye to the old and hello to the new
“I think Holly’s been ready to leave for a while now.” Recently, my mom told me that this had been said about me, and I would be lying if it wasn’t true. Since the end of my junior year, I have been prepared to leave Frazee and Detroit Lakes. The day that this is published,...

Bouncing back from my first spiritual funk
I confess to you, I am not a perfect Christian. I go to church whenever possible, do my best to treat others as God wants me to, and read my Bible every night. However, I fall short, and my emotions can get the best of me. Sometimes life hits me all at once, and that happened recently....

Christians don’t have to all think the same
As you may have read in in some of my other columns, like most teenagers, my life has brought me a lot of rejections recently. One of the more surprising ones I faced in the last year was through a faith community, and although I was shocked, I came through it stronger in my faith...

‘Better than I imagined I’d be’
When this paper is released, I will have graduated almost a week and a half ago. Who I turned out to be turned out to be is much different than I anticipated myself to be, but I am fine with that. When I was in eighth grade, I thought I had everything figured out. I wanted to go into...

Christian roots found in an unlikely place for local teen
As you have figured out by now, I am a Christian, as are my parents. However, you might not know that neither of my parents came from Christian families. In a way, this is a bit of a unique situation, as both sides of my families turned away from God at the same time, but through...

Don’t just let college choose you, you should choose it
My college search started when I was in seventh grade. I thought that I wanted to go into agricultural science, as that was the field my parents went into, and NDSU was my top choice. That idea changed pretty quickly, and soon I was a freshman who frequently looked up information...

At home in God’s house
Nine years ago, our family started attending First Lutheran Church. Before that, we had always attended another church, but it was truly at First Lutheran where we found our place. It’s been the place where I realized what following Christ really meant, developed my faith, and found...

Calculus class ‘functions’ as a stress-reliever
If you’ve read my article on senior year, you’re probably already aware that my senior year has been better than any high school year I’ve ever had. That’s not to say it hasn’t been stressful (College decision weeks left me barely able to eat and crazy emotional), or that...
