  • Hughes remembered as gentle soul, with a flare of flamboyance

    It was 1982, shortly after I began working at the Carroll County Public Library, trying hard to put names with faces and learn the ins and outs of Carrolton when my most unique patron walked in with her young son.

  • The love of God can bring change to a sinner’s heart

    As I sit here with this pen in hand, I am asking my Savior what he would have me say in this great opportunity to address the greatest community in the world to live. 

    First, I believe he would say you are loved by him, forgiven by him, made free by him, and saved by him. We cannot get away from his love because the blood of Calvary is real and everlasting.  Calvary changed everything. His name is Jesus, He did it all for us because of His love for us to make a new way of living without sin.  We do not have to sin any more, his blood has washed us from it.
