  • As December holidays approach, plan ahead so you will remember this season, rather than the months it took to pay off the mountain of debt incurred on gifts for family and friends.

    To keep from spending too much money on holiday gifts, set a budget that won’t put you in a tight financial squeeze.

  • What a sweet consolation it is when we feel close to God in liturgy, with the help perhaps of inspiring music or a challenging homily or a strong connection with members of the assembly. But what happens when such consolations are not our regular experience? How can we encounter God in liturgy even when we’re not feeling “fed”? Such a question is familiar territory for most catechists.

  • Few things say fall better than pumpkins. Whether you use them to cook, decorate or carve, chances are a pumpkin in some form or fashion will be a part of your seasonal celebrations. In fact, 80 percent of the U.S. pumpkin supply is available in October.

    Here are some interesting facts about the season’s favorite gourd.

    •Pumpkins originated in Central America and get their name from the Greek word pepon, which means large melon. Pumpkins are in the same family with cucumbers, squash, zucchini and melons.

  • Animal projects are some of the longest-running and easily identifiable aspects of 4-H, but they are much more complex than what happens in the show ring. Many people may not realize the valuable skills that 4-H’ers receive as a result of participating in these projects.

    4-H animal projects help youth learn about the life cycle, growth and feeding of animals. In the process, they learn about animal selection and evaluation, nutrition and feeding, animal health, daily care, reproduction and marketing.
