  • God forms all children in the mother’s womb

    Genesis 9:6: Whoever sheds man’s blood, By man his blood shall be shed; For in the image of God He made man. Killing another person is a sin, and the Bible makes that very clear.
    Psalms 51:5: For I was born a sinner. From the moment my mother conceived me. Some justify abortion by claiming that the unborn child is only a fetus, a physical body in the early stages of development.

  • God’s amazing grace

    We tell people that we can get ahead by our efforts, but here is the problem when it comes to salvation. We think we can be good enough, go to church enough, pray enough, give enough money to the church or read the Bible enough, then God will love us and save us.  But this is not the way God works.
    Our salvation is based on grace, and grace is the heart of our faith.  It is at the center of our relationship with God. Grace is when God gives us what we don’t deserve.  Who can begin to understand God’s amazing grace?

  • COLUMN: Bits of wisdom from back roads

    There’s news in the making, every day and everywhere. Over the past couple of weeks, I have had the awesome privilege of getting to work with city officials and residents of LaRue County.
    I have been able to see and experience a lot by being behind the scenes as decisions are being made. I’ve shared laughter and even some tears with moms of graduates; I’ve stood in the rain and watched as work has been done on city roads and witnessed firsthand, neighbors helping neighbors.

  • Two battles with diagnosis of ‘The Big C’

    The fifth in a series about
    local cancer survivors.
    In 1995, we had promised our two daughters that we would move to Kentucky in 1997. I began to cough. Two to three rounds of antibiotics — no change.  
    Then came such a whirlwind of medical activity — enough to make one dizzy — X-rays with contrast, bone scans, biopsies, etc. Then we got the diagnosis: the BIG C, upper right lobe of this non-smoker’s lung.
