  • Ten Truths About Forgiveness

    Forgiveness is hard. Our hurts are real, often deep, and frequently long-lasting. Bitterness and un-forgiveness are more present and dangerous than we realize

    Forgiveness Requires Confession. Before we can “get right” with people, we must “be right” with God. “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:9)

  • Living Today     

    The Psalmist said, “This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it” (Psalm 118:24).  This is a prescription for the soul, which can give zest, sparkler and determination to your life.

    A lot of people have shared their memories of Wally on social media sites. When someone has served in a community for almost three decades, a lot of memories have no doubt been made by many people.

    I came to know Wally really well after I started working at The LaRue County Herald News in June 2015. Actually, he was the first person I talked to on the first day of my job.
