  • Remember God is with us

    One problem we face many times is a malfunction of our memory. We remember what we are supposed to forget and forget what we should remember.

    God says, “Your sins and your iniquities will I remember no more.” Yet many Christians are shackled with the memory of sins that God has already forgotten. Paul said, “Forgetting those things which are behind,” and yet many are chained to failures and mistakes of the past. We need a poor memory when it comes to sins that God has already forgiven, buried and forgotten.

  • Remember 'safety first' when using wood stoves

    With Ol’ Man Winter bringing cold days and frosty nights to the state, the temptation to warm one’s toes at a wood stove’s blazing fire can be too much to resist. According to the National Ag Safety Database, heating equipment is the number one cause of home fires. So safety precautions should be taken by those wishing to heat their homes with a wood stove.

  • Consider alfalfa as one of your grazing options

    Alfalfa is a high quality, high yielding, perennial legume and is incredibly versatile under proper management. It can be grown in pure stands or mixtures for grazing, and can be the best legume choice for a grass-legume grazing.  There are numerous grazing tolerant varieties now available so there is no need to be as concerned about persistence under grazing (providing it is properly managed).
