  • Bible’s truths can be uncomfortable

    Did you ever watch shows like “America’s Funniest Home Videos?” We used to watch it a lot, just because it is funny, lighthearted, and our granddaughter would laugh her head off. I still watch it when I get a chance.

  • Was U of L running with the devil?

    The University of Louisville men’s basketball team’s self-imposed ban on post-season play has rocked their season and drawn the ire of Coach Rick Pitino who argues that heavy fines should be levied on coaches, the school—anybody but his ballplayers. It’s a compelling argument from U of L’s motivator-in-chief. But this is the second time Pitino has skirted around a sex scandal and his credibility is wearing thin as he claims to not have known about it.

  • Debt and the Bible

    Wow, have you seen those “Get Cash Now” commercials? I wasn’t really paying attention, but I caught the end of one the other night when that little disclaimer blurb flashed up. You know the one you can barely see and never have the time to read? Anyway, all I saw was 99.25 percent APR. You’ve got to be kidding.

  • God wants us to dream

    I could hardly sleep the night before. Long before the alarm rang to get me up for school I was already awake and dressed. It was dress-up day for the fourth grade class at Keavy Elementary School (home of the Blue Jays). All of the students had instructions to dress up as their favorite character from a story book.

  • Trusting God in the storms of life

    Last week, I received news that was hard to hear. I sat in front of my spine doctor and listened as he said there was nothing he could do to help with an injury I sustained in a car accident two years ago. Since my accident in January 2014, I’ve been dealing with low-back pain, leg pain, numbness in my feet, and sporadic headaches. I’ve had to adjust my lifestyle to fit my level of pain.

  • Dress for success

    It finally turned cold outside. And my dog doesn’t understand that taking her for a walk is no longer as simple as grabbing the leash and walking out the door. What makes it worse is that Molly (our dog) is part Husky, it seems the colder it gets, the more she likes it.
