  • COLUMN: Children: Setting limits, offering praise

     All parents want their children to grow up to be responsible, self-sufficient adults, but the teenage years can be rocky for parents and children. It’s during this time that children often test parents’ limits and start requesting things like cell phones, later curfews and less adult supervision. This is also the time when many parents have to decide where they stand on many issues, financially and morally, and learn how to graciously and responsibly let go.

  • COLUMN: Crop rotation lowers risk of tobacco plant disease

     Farmers planning for this year’s burley tobacco crop need to keep disease prevention and management a part of those plans.

    Black shank is always a problem in some fields every year, but may or may not be a big problem this year. There's no way to tell what disease pressures growers will face in the coming growing season. Much depends on the climate with diseases like black shank, blue mold and target spot.

  • COLUMN: Meet the God of all grace

     The Apostle Peter says God is “the God of all grace” (1 Peter 5:10-11). Paul in Titus 2:11 says, “the grace of God that brings salvation.” Both these New Testament writers speak of God’s grace. God’s grace is a major subject for study in the Bible. 

    God’s grace brings salvation according to Paul in Titus 2:11. He tells the Ephesians, “In Him (Jesus) we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace” (1:7).
