  •  Several young members of Lane Lincoln CME Church in Hodgenville are following the Golden Rule through offering free academic tutoring.

    “I’ve always wanted to help others the way I would like to be helped,” said LaRue County High School senior Christian Pope, who with seniors Shaila Winston, Sheridan Myers and junior Misha Jakes are tutoring LaRue County students each Wednesday from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the church.

  •  But be very careful to keep the commandments and the law that Moses, the servant of the Lord gave you: to love the Lord your God; to walk in all his ways; to obey his commands; to hold fast to him; and to serve him with all your heart and all your soul. Joshua 22:5

    This verse gives us clear guidelines or specific actions for a Christian lifestyle:

  •  Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear ... Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? Matthew 6:25a, 27

    I try not to worry ... I really do. I try to turn all potential worries over to the Lord, because I know that he can handle them, he sees the big picture and he wants what's best for me. 

    But … we all can't help but be concerned about certain things that come into our lives.

  •  Richard Sharp said, “We can never turn the world upside down until we’ve turned the church inside out.”

    The people observed the early church in the book of Acts and said, "These men who have upset the world have come here also" (17:6). The early church had just a handful of people, no buildings and no budget, nothing except a zeal for the Lord. How did they turn the world upside down? Because they turned the church inside out.

  •  A preacher once said, “My people believe the Gospel, but many of them don’t behave the Gospel.”

    Admiring truth is not enough. Doctrine and duty ought to go side by side. Belief and behavior should never be separated. Our lives must match our profession if we are to make an impression upon a lost world in our day.

    Every great doctrine of the Bible makes a practical demand upon our lives. If we say we believe the doctrines, then we need to obey them. Consider a few doctrines and the demands they bring with them.

  •  A common question that many parents have is: How can I teach my child to eat healthy and keep fit? The Kentucky Department of Public Health has begun a new campaign to help families answer this question. And, it's simple: 5-2-1-0.

    These four numbers stand for:

    (5) Five or more fruits and vegetables every day,

    (2) Two or less hours of screen time,

    (1) One hour or more of physical activity,

    (0) Zero sugary drinks.


  •  Do you know your family’s health history? Or is it like a secret no one wants to talk about?

    Many health conditions, including type 2 diabetes, run in families. Many people who get type 2 diabetes have one or more family members with the disease.

  •   October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Hardin Memorial Health has two events planned to educate the community on the early detection of breast cancer.

    • Transportation to the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure: Ride together on a Toby Tour bus to the Race for the Cure, Oct. 13, in Iroquois Park, Louisville.

    Race or walk with others dedicated to the promise to save lives and end breast cancer.
