  • A new school year can bring new challenges and struggles for young people.

    Add on top of that changing bodies and hormones, and it can be a particularly challenging time for teenagers. As parents, we often wonder if our child’s behavior changes are typical or if they are something more that could be cause for concern.

    It’s important for us to familiarize ourselves with the signs and symptoms of depression so we can help our children live happier and healthier lives.

  • Fall is a beautiful time in Kentucky gardens, but it can also be a messy time. Tree leaves turn from green to vibrant fall colors and then drop, creating big piles. Then there are the leaves and spent shoots from our flower beds.

    The way we address our yard waste can have a significant impact on our gardens and on the environment. Gardeners commonly rake up and bag leaves to haul away to yard waste dumps.

    This option, while tidy, uses a lot of energy, both yours and the energy to transport the leaves and mixed garden waste.

  • In most, if not all, 12-step recovery programs, a common mantra is “sharing our experience, strength and hope.”

    Mem-bers don’t (or aren’t supposed to) give advice or pontificate. Mem-bers don’t tell other members what to do.

    Instead, they share their own experience, strength and hope.

    It’s a way for those who are sharing to remind themselves of the progress they’re making, of the way God is at work, making them better, giving them strength to do the right things, the better things, the hard things.

  • A couple years ago the financial markets were going haywire and I decided to write a column to try to help soothe investor fears. Today, we are back in an extremely volatile market. With China trade wars, inverse yield curves, the Feds unexpectantly lower rates and a whole slew of other negative news out there, I felt it was important to rehash some of my thoughts from a few years ago.
