Actions May Go a Long Way

Written by Kristi Reindl. Media by Briana Phillips. During my sophomore year of high school, I sat next to a boy in biology--a boy I wasn’t particularly fond of.  I knew nothing about him except that he was boisterous and loved counting how many times the teacher sent him to the principal’s office each week.  Though we shared a desk, I put as much distance between us as the table allowed while he riled the ...

Listening Ears

Nicole Barks: Living her Life to the Fullest

Greenville College junior Nicole Barks brings excitement to life all around her. Her vigor and positivity reflects the beauty and hope in life that she strives to illustrate for others. Barks doesn’t just invite people to join with her in the exciting adventure of life, they are naturally drawn to her personality. Barks brings creativity and imagination into every situation. Even as a child, she and her siblings spent their days in imaginary worlds, traveling through space and time, visiting dinosaurs. When she wasn’t outside, she entered the world of books where dragons and sorcerers came to life. Although creativity plays an important role in her everyday life, Barks is purpose driven as well. She starts each new day with yesterday’s accomplishments and/or problems far from mind. Rather, she focuses on completing the present tasks at hand that each day introduces. Most importantly, however, Barks is drawn to people and developing close bonds with each individual. At an early age, she imagined herself becoming a doctor to help people in a healing aspect. “I was so sure of my career path, I would even write ‘Dr. Barks’ at the top of my papers,” Barks admits. As such, Barks aspired to be a doctor until her later years of high school when she found herself being drawn to mission work instead. Her passion for helping others on a deeper, personal level became clearer to her. “I want to be more involved in people’s lives – everyday life, not just check-ups.” She is driven to help people challenge themselves and experience success, thriving on watching them grow. “I strive for growth and development not only in myself, but in others as well.” Fellow classmate and good friend Daniel Ruder describes her as “passionate, responsible, and godly. At times she’s entirely silly and fun-loving, but she’s also sensitive to the needs of others and is able to adapt accordingly.” ...

Clothing your Character: Pearls

For centuries, people have used pearls for accessorizing and ornamentation. In fact, they have held the status of 'prized jewel' centuries before cut stones gained popularity. Although other stones require mining, cutting, and polishing, the pearl possesses natural beauty that requires no extra work. A large part of the pearl’s appeal rests in its natural origins. Unlike other precious gems, they come from a living animal, a mollusk. Created by a random process of nature, they carry a sense of mystery and wonder. While today we often consider them a commonplace accessory, they held a much higher status in the ancient world. Throughout history, a natural pearl necklace made up of matching spheres was a treasure of almost incomparable value. These natural gems were first discovered in The Arabian Gulf and it remained their main source for centuries. In fact, seventy to eighty percent of all pearls came from the Gulf until the 1950s. Before the creation of cultured pearls in the 1900s, only the noble and rich could obtain these rare gems. ...
