Be a Man

Be a Man

This past weekend, the women of IMPACT 360 were out on their Womanhood Retreat at Summit Ministries in Alabama. Having had the Manhood Retreat the weekend before, we men of IMPACT were left in charge of the campus, and we were ready to put what we’d learned about Biblical manliness in to practice. So, while the women were out, the men got to work. Early Friday morning, we embarked on some student-led …

What’s in a name?

 

When I was five, I learned how to spell my name. J-A-N-A-E. Janae. I learned it wasn’t “Jenny” or “Jane” or “Janie”. It was Janae. With an E on the end. I learned my middle name was Janna. With two Ns. And I learned that all my siblings had two names that started with Js too.

The funny thing about names is that you don’t know what it’s like to be something else. People have always called …

Entrepreneurs for the Kingdom

As I was talking with fellow IMPACT 360 alumnus Jonathan Skagfield this evening, our phone call got interrupted by the not-so-great internet connection here in the Middle East. The phone cut out right in the middle of our prayer. As we reconnected, I began with ,”Pardon the interruption, Lord.” I’m so thankful that our God hears our prayers, even when those we are praying with can’t.

As Jonathan and I were talking, we threw ideas around …

Going to the Source

Going to the Source

Yesterday, Jonathon, Jordan, Katie, and I drove over to the Callaway Blue bottling facility in Hamilton, GA to pick up some water bottles for our campus. We only use Callaway Blue water at IMPACT 360. Why? We have had ties to the Callaway family since our founding; it is bottled locally, so it is an opportunity for us to invest in our community; but most importantly, it tastes the best. While we were …

The journey so far…

The journey so far…

My time at IMPACT 360 has been a proverbial rollercoaster. I have gone from the highest of the highs to the lowest of lows, had nights where I question why I even put myself through this in the first place, and yet still woken up the next morning praising God for all the wonderful (albeit hard) lessons that He’s teaching me. I came into IMPACT 360 thinking that I for the most part, had my …

Touch the Table

Touch the Table

When I came IMPACT360, I had very few instances where I needed to act on a professional level. If I had been placed in such a professional situation, I would not have known how to speak or behave. However, over the past several months, we have been instructed on how to approach professional settings. We have been taught how to speak, stand, eat, and converse on a professional level. This past Wednesday, I was able …

Mirror to Light…

“There is no reason to supposed that self-consciousness, the recognition of a creature by itself as a “self”, can exist except in contrast with an environment of other selves, that the awareness of Myself stands out. ” -CS Lewis, Problem of Pain

How often do we talk about self-consciousness as if it’s a problem with ourselves? We focus inward and compare and say things about how we aren’t good enough or how we don’t measure up. …

This is Home…?

When I first left TN for Impact, I was positive for homesickness. Desperately so. I longed for my family, for the familiar places, even for the grocery stores I knew. I wanted to go home.

Yet the longer I stayed in Pine Mountain, the more I started to refer to this place as “home.”  The dorms were home. Campus was home. Pine Mountain was home. Even while I was in TN for Fall and Thanksgiving break, I …
