    Magnet on the move – Brad and Beth Hardy, of Taylorsville, took a trip to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico in August and took The Spencer Magnet along on their journey.  Beth Hardy said everyday was an adventure from diving in the ocean to zip lining through the jungle. They even caught an 8-foot, 120 lb.  sailfish. We’d love to see your Magnet on the move. Send to editor@spencermagnet.com.

  • Once a child touches a hot stove, as the cliché goes—he learns his lesson, stay away from a hot stove. This cliché does not take into account the pain and suffering from burns and burns should not be part of the learning process.

  • In this article I decided to write about my favorite disciple, Simon Peter.

  • Last week, in a letter to the editor, a respondent asked “Where in the Bible did Christ change the Sabbath from the seventh day to the first day?” This is a very good question because it is one that has been debated throughout the history of the church – should we worship on Saturday or Sunday? Unfortunately there is no clear cut answer to this question; however, there is enough textual information recorded in the Bible to make a strong argument.
