  • Have you ever wondered why in past times you did not move on something?  Many times in our life, we live with so many regrets of our past. Thoughts of ‘Why not,’ ‘I could of,’ or ‘I should of!’

    Living in a land of remorse of our past often will paralyze us from moving forward into our future. God is always trying to get us to look forward, to focus on what’s ahead and not on WHAT’S behind.

  • Hello once again, my friends. As I write this article I am looking out the window at a brilliant sunshiny afternoon. Not so long ago we were talking about comfort foods and hearty meals. My how times have changed. Now it’s baseball and softball season, soccer is being played and we all seem to be a little more frantic in our lives. No matter what there just doesn’t seem to be enough time in the day to do all the things we need to do. Perhaps, instead of more time, we simply need to make better use of the time we do have.

  • Last week six Carroll County Homemakers attended the annual, Kentucky Extension Homemakers Association Conference in Northern Kentucky. Northern Kentucky Area Homemakers hosted the convention this year.

    Homemakers from all over the state come together to enjoy: educational programs to benefit members, creative art classes, fellowship, and raise money for different endeavors. Silent auction items from every county in the state are donated to raise funds for Ovarian Cancer Research. Carroll County Homemakers raised $475 through their creative use of lightly used items!
