  • Have you ever wondered what would happen if we in America would leave our wants and wishes to Jesus. Jesus tells us in Matthew 6:33 what to do before we start wishing and wanting.

    “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness and these things will be added unto you.” Matthew: 6:33

    “Ask and it shall be given you, seek and ye shall find, knock and it shall be opened unto you. For every one that asketh, receiveth; and he that seeketh, findeth, and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.” Matthew 7:7-8

  • Every day, whether we realize it or not, we meet people who are struggling with pain or fear or heartache.  They may smile at you in the grocery store or frown at you as you wait at a stop light, but they are hurting.  The teller at the bank or the guy working on your car may be hanging on by a thread, but most of the time we never see it, most of the time they never show it.

  • One local reader submitted these old receipts for subscriptions to The Spencer Courier and to The Spencer Magnet. The Spencer Courier receipt, pictured above, dates back 100 years.

  • A healthy diet is often mistaken for one that is devoid of desirable foods. But just because a diet is healthy doesn’t mean it can’t be delicious as well. A few easy modifications to your favorite recipes can make a diet healthier without sacrificing taste.

  • Father’s Day is the perfect time to try out a new dessert. Gooey butter cake can be made the day before, and is actually better on the second day. That makes it perfect for a Father’s Day picnic or family gathering. It is also adaptable to flavors that dads enjoy by adding extracts or other embellishments.
    Gooey butter cake was invented in St. Louis, Missouri in the 1930s. It has been popular ever since.
