Lots of Media Lately

Posted by Brenna Malmberg


At the Milkworks Family Festival, kids could dress up at one of the booths, and this girl decided to be a dinosaur, rawr and all.


Mom's little hunk did a little dancing to the String Beans, a local group I featured in a previous blog about Nebraska.

For a while I was searching for something to fill my days. Now, I am writing, design, interviewing or taking photos for hours each day. All of the media buzz in my life is thanks to a bunch of freelance opportunities. . . .

Up and Running

Posted by Brenna Malmberg

If you tried to go to my site yesterday evening, sorry it wasn't working. Some how things got deleted, and Cole had to contact them to get it all figured out and fixed. So, good news, it is working again as you can see. Thanks for visiting! And stay tuned for next week's start of special days!

TFC Camp

Posted by Brenna Malmberg

Right now, a bunch TFC Campers are trying to go to sleep after their first day at camp. From fifth to twelfth-grade, that was me. Every summer I would be at TFC Camp, no matter what. I never missed a year, and even after I graduated, I came back and volunteered after my first year at KU.

Now I just get to hear about the exciting week from friends, staff members and campers. My brother is actually there right now too, volunteering. But just because I am not there this week hasn't stopped me from being a part, even though in the end a rather small part. I worked throughout the year making logos and other graphics for the campers. But basically, those are just fun little additions to the great week. The best parts of camp come from the time spent learning about your personal relationship with Jesus and what that looks like in your life from staff, volunteers and great speakers, such as Jack. . . .

What Words Can Do

Posted by Brenna Malmberg

After watching that video and reading an article on NPR, I thought about how important words are. Almost every day my job or hobbies include words. According to Oxford Dictionary, a quarter of a million distint English words exist. That is a lot of words to pick from each time I write a story, blog, caption or blurb. . . .

Who Knew Nebraska Had All This

Posted by Brenna Malmberg

I have lived in Nebraska for a little more than a month now, and I spent a lot of time in the state because of gymnastics my whole life; but this song I heard taught me a lot about the state.

This song by The String Beans, a children's music group from Nebraska, filled the air at the Milkworks Family Festival I took pictures at on July 16. (Those pictures should be on the Lincoln Journal Star site soon.) I couldn't help myself but to listen. I think you will agree after you hit play on the video above. . . .
