  • Boredom. Yes, the dreaded B-word.

    We all seem to hear it enough as it is, especially when our children are out of school for the summer. Boredom is the ultimate test of our character. We all want to be satiated with enjoyment.

  •  “There is neither Jew nor Greek, neither slave nor free, not male and female, for you are one in Christ Jesus.”

    Paul was the Apostle to the Gentiles – a missionary for Christ. He wrote these famous words to the Galatians, living in what is modern-day Turkey. Paul welcomed each new community he visited as equal with the Jews, who first heard the Good News. He lived among new people as his brothers and sisters, and so convinced them, as well as the early church leaders, that unity in diversity is the hallmark of life in Jesus Christ.

  • God always keeps his promises. He has made a ton of them to his children throughout the scriptures and continues even today to do so.  A promise is the assurance that someone gives to another so they can know by faith, while they wait, the task will be completed.

  • Kentucky has an abundance of trees — about 12.4 million forested acres.

    In Eastern Kentucky, forests are full of dense stands of hardwoods. In Western Kentucky, you are more likely to see a riparian forest along a winding river. In Central Kentucky, stately bur oaks often populate urban landscapes.

    In Carroll County, we have more than 27,000 forested acres — that is 30.4 percent of the total county.
