  • "And we know."

  • At our recent board meeting, we updated our active and inactive volunteer list and went over some of our planned activities for residents. We also discussed our need to replace some of our hymn books which are showing signs of wear and tear.

    We are going to obtain 11 new hymn books. In the back of the books we are going to dedicate each book to the memory of a recently deceased resident, Bobby Morris.
    The board thought this was appropriate since Bobby was a good Christian and well-liked by staff, volunteers and residents.

  •  Military families face unique challenges and struggles. As a way to help military families bond and reconnect when they return from a deployment, the University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service is hosting two free military family camps this summer. The Deployment Support Camps were made possible by a grant UK Family and Consumer Sciences Extension received from the Department of Defense.

  • Have you ever had someone say to you, “Well, it’s your fault?”

    Why is it we don't want to take responsibility for our own actions? Isn’t it much easier to blame someone else? The Bible is very clear on this matter. 

    Each one of us is responsible for our own decisions, behaviors and relationships.

    Adam was warned by God not to eat the fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil or he would die. Adam did eat, but blamed someone else.

  • Coconut oil comes from the fruit of mature coconuts. It is a saturated fat, and consumers are cautioned against a diet high in saturated fat. It is unique though. Not only is it solid at room temperature, it is the only saturated fat that does not come from an animal source such as meat or dairy. The fatty acid in coconut oil raises both good and bad cholesterol levels.
