  • One of the fondest memories of my childhood is that of my entire family sitting down almost every evening for a nice meal together. It was a great opportunity for us to talk about the day's events and stay connected with each other. For most families these days it is hard to make time for family meals for many reasons. But the benefits of sharing a meal together are tremendous for both parents and kids.

  • Persuaded by a part-time farm hand working on the family grain and dairy farm, Dale Dobson, now safety coordinator for the Kentucky Department of Agriculture, joined the LaRue County Volunteer Fire Department.
    “Brad Miller was his name,” said Dobson. “He would always say, ‘come on man, join ... you’d really like doing this at night,’ so in February 1989 I finally did.”

  • The message of Easter is that Jesus conquered sin and death and rose again. The result is that we have the promise of eternal life in a perfect environment.

    This is important because of our heritage. We are descendants of Adam and Eve. They were created in the image of God to live forever. But this changed when they sinned. They started to grow old and to wonder, "What happens after I die?"
