  • We’ve just about all heard the old saying, “I don’t mean to step on your toes, but…” I’ve had my toes stepped on quite a few times, mostly at church, and it hurts. I’ll admit that I don’t like it, because to get rid of the pain, I have to correct what caused the pain to begin with. Have you ever been in a church service that just really stepped on your toes?

  • New Year’s Day has passed, but I am reminded that every day is a new day, a new opportunity to re-imagine the future. And it is always exciting to seek out God’s vision and plan for our lives and for His Church. It is exciting to consider that even our greatest dreams are tiny compared to what God can really do.

  • The story is told about an ambitious mother who once took her young son to hear a piano concert by a master piano player. The young boy had been taking lessons but was not as excited about a future in the instrument as his mother was. The mother and son entered the auditorium and found their seats just a couple of rows back from the stage.

    In her excitement, mom began to chatter with all the people seated around her. Her young son quickly became bored. Looking around however, he did find something which drew his interest.

  • Few songs are more recognizable to Christians than “Amazing Grace.” It is a fixture in many worship services and funerals. But what exactly is grace, and why is it so amazing? Sadly, some Christians struggle to answer those questions. All they seem to know about grace is that it is something they can fall from. Therefore, it is important that we take a close look at this topic.

    Winter weather is here and many people are not as fortunate as others. They need basic items such as coats, hats, gloves, socks, scarves, blankets and sleeping bags.

  • On an unusually warm December morning, farmers Allen Phillips and Eddie Klingenfus stand before the remains of a once booming dairy farm and reminisce about their lifetime of labor.

    Combined, the two farmers gave Shelby County nearly a century’s worth of milk–Phillips with 53 years under his belt and Klingenfus, 42.

    But the two say they are finally ready for a break.

    “A dairy ties you down,” Klingenfus said, explaining that a farm is like caring for an infant child that never grows up.

  • Dear Savvy Senior,

    Is pill splitting safe? I have several friends who cut their pills in half in order to save money, but I have some concerns. What can you tell me?

    Cautious Kim

    Dear Kim,

    Pill splitting – literally cutting them in half – has become a popular way to save on pharmaceutical costs but you need to talk to your doctor or pharmacist first, because not all pills can be split.

    A pound of butter, a pound of sugar, a pound of flour and a pound of eggs—that’s the easy-to-remember recipe for an 18th-century pound cake, large enough to feed a family for days. Most of us don’t have large families to feed, and with the short days and long nights of January, we may be inclined to polish off the entire cake by ourselves.
