  • COLUMN: Why hasn't my plant bloomed?

    We have all asked the question “why hasn’t my plant bloomed?” Sometimes the answer is as simple as not enough sunlight, not old enough, not cold enough or hot enough, etc. In fact it could be as simple as a little digging and dividing for some renewed blooming attitude.

  • COLUMN: Taking care of horses important in dry conditions

    No question about it, 2012 is proving to be a record breaker where heat and drought are concerned. You’ll want to make some adjustments due to the weather to take care of your horses this summer. It’s very important to also consider what you will need to feed them later on this year. Even though we have had some rain here in Spencer County recently, you still need to be concerned with what the rest of the summer may hold.

  • COLUMN: Where have you seen God lately?

    Over the last few years, it has been my privilege to share my thoughts with you through these columns. My goal is that we would all learn to see God at work in the little things that make up our daily lives. Whether it is taking out the trash, caring for your dog, or driving down the road, there are glimpses of God at work everywhere.
    Recently during our annual vacation Bible school our material suggested we encourage the kids to tell us about their “God-Sightings.” That is, how they saw God at work at VBS, or at home, or anywhere else that week.

  • COLUMN: Live a Christian life with ‘heart knowledge’

    Many, many people try to live a Christian life by head knowledge instead of heart knowledge. This is impossible to do. I have heard many people say, “I would accept Jesus as my Savior if I thought I could live it.”
    This is one of the biggest tricks the devil tells us. He has a lot of ways to deceive us. Without Jesus living in our hearts there is no way we can defeat Satan; our head knowledge just doesn’t have a chance.

  • COLUMN: Cancer touches everyone, everywhere

    When I was 10 years old, or maybe 9, my grandmother was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. I didn’t know what that meant. I just knew she got really sick, really fast.
    On January 21, 1995, I lost the last of my living grandparents to this ugly disease. I remember my mom getting the phone call to come to the hospital in a hurry. I remember my dad carrying me into my great aunt’s house. I remember pretending to be asleep when my great aunt Bonnie got the call that her sister had died.
