  • Funding for higher education reaps rewards in many areas

    In the late 1990s, when the General Assembly overhauled Kentucky’s public colleges and universities, one of the reform’s central planks was to improve the level of research.

    To spur that along, the state created “Bucks for Brains” and called on the schools to match that money with private donations, an initiative that has since raised more than $800 million.

  • Keep your life in focus by putting God first

    Please read Ecclesiastes 2:1-11. These scriptures teach us that Solomon made costly mistakes.  Known as the wisest man who ever lived excluding Jesus, Solomon made some costly blunders.

    His pursuit of worldly goods that did not pertain to God’s vision for him produces insanity. By the time he penned these words, he had reached a high level of success, but was not satisfied or content.

    Like many people today, he felt empty.
