  • Everybody has trouble but nobody seems to want it. The trouble is not the trouble itself, but how we handle it. One young man loses his girlfriend and tries to commit suicide. Another young man loses his girlfriend, writes a song about it, and makes a million dollars. The difference is in the way you treat the problems that come to you.

  • Freedom from want has been a visionary goal of Americans since President Franklin D. Roosevelt mentioned it in his Four Freedoms speech to Congress in 1941.

    Several churches in LaRue County are doing their part to ensure, especially in these economically hard times, that LaRue County’s residents do not lack their basic necessities.
