  • Christ can help everyone break chains of addiction

    I had a conversation with a man earlier this month who was truly struggling with life.

    Down on his luck, hungry, broke, and tired he came by my door. I sat with him and listened to his story and near the end I said “God wants to help you through this.” 

  • Fall is time to think about weed management options for pastures

    As we move into fall, our grazed pastures may be showing areas of thin vegetative cover and bare soil. Weedy vegetation, like common ragweed and other summer annuals, may already be present, but as these plants die back naturally, cool-season weeds will take their place:  chickweed, henbit and purple deadnettle. Other weeds such as buttercup and musk thistle will likely be more prevalent in the next spring.

  • Project-based learning elevates student work

Students sat in rows, completed assignments and listened to lectures. This model of education focused on large groups of students, not on the needs of individuals.

  • Liven up dishes by adding simple ingredients

    Hello my friends. As I sit here typing this I can only think of the glorious weather outside. Well, that and the wonderful food that is about to come our way. Fall, of course, brings leaves of varying shades, children in costumes consuming far more candy than they should and most importantly, football. All that being the case, it also brings back the hearty foods of cool weather making it one of my favorite times of year to cook.
