  • The winter months are a great time to catch up on much needed family time. Yes, it’s cold. Yes, you cannot get outdoors as much, but around your home you have plenty of indoor activities to do with your children that can create a meaningful family experience and lots of wonderful memories.

  • So often, we find that life is difficult to navigate. Temptation lurks around each corner and the world challenges us to adapt and accept the ways and manners of the world. But followers of Jesus are called to live in a manner that exemplifies the residence of Christ in the believer’s heart. Such an example of this style of Christ-filled living occurred in Daniel 6. There, Daniel demonstrated the various dance steps needed to dance with lions.

  • As we enter a new year the wise men from the Christmas story have a message for us.  We don›t know a lot about them.  We have said there were three because of the three gifts -- there could have been more of the wise men.  When did they come?  Matthew 2:11 indicates it was later when Mary and Joseph and the baby were in a house.

  • The hard work and perseverance of hundreds of students and their families and the overwhelming response of the LaRue County community culminated this past week with the dedication of the Mary Jane Stillwell Buddy Benches at the Abraham Lincoln Elementary School. Stillwell, a well respected and loved teacher assistant at ALES, died of cancer this past summer.

  •  The holidays are a wonderful time for family togetherness, but after a few days, everyone, no matter their age, begins to look for distractions. In a world of smart phones, tablets and laptops, our attention often turns to technology. But, it is possible to keep young people active and engaged without technology.
