Malinda and Family
November 20, 2015 - 9:12am
Though Malinda Shoaf’s journey to Mount Mercy University was full of roadblocks and potholes, the junior nursing major is doing what she can to give back to the world, raising money to offer residents of Sunnycrest Nursing Center in Dysart, Iowa, a bit of a pampered life. Malinda is collecting donations to offer hand treatments to 25 residents of the nursing center, a plan born out of the realization that not every nursing home resident will receive the attention and love deserved this holiday season.
Each of us has a story to tell. This is an opportunity to gain the tools to get that story out. Even if you are not a writer, you will benefit from the skills taught. I went through this a couple weeks ago, and I was shocked/blown away by some of the memories that were brought up and healing that happened as a result.
Catch a ride to Lindale Mall or Wal-Mart—every Tuesday night—on us!

What single hateful moment leaves an impression -- that tweet, this post, his pic, her laugh -- fleeting actions that seem harmless create ripples of pain for the subject. Ongoing torment scars, breaks, and damages lives. It's happened to us all at some point in time -- the ghost of a playground bully crosses your mind, an insult slips out at work, or someone gets a laugh at your expense in class. Some of us bounce back from the hurt. Some of us never heal. What word will your actions spark in others? We hope it's love.
