  • Making Farm Business Plans

    My wife and I recently purchased a farm and so far I’ve noticed that I struggle with making plans. It’s odd because I am an expert list maker and if you’ve seen my desk you will see post it notes everywhere with to-do lists and phone numbers and events that are coming up.

    If you have a child who has just started kindergarten, you may want to look through this list of items and see if there is anything else that you still want or need to do.

  • Pray for our schools


    On Sunday, August 5, I had the privilege of watching people of all ages from many of our community churches come and pray together in our county schools. Didn’t get to join us? Checkout “LaRue County Churches” on Facebook to see what happened.

    This week as school goes back, let’s pray for our school system to be a bright light of God’s love in the midst of a dark world. Here are 10 tips on how to pray for our schools.

  • God’s Amazing Love

    Allow me to begin where I ended in my last devotion with John 3:16.  If all the Bible were destroyed and only John 3:16 remained there would be enough there to save the world.  But if the world refuses to believe there is enough in that verse to condemn the world.

    John 3:16 is all that a man needs to know. Salvation is so simple that children believe and become a child of God.  But the verse is so profound that philosophers have been confounded by its magnitude.  It is limitless, and cannot be exhausted.

  • Reverend Terry Robertson as Pastor at Lane Lincoln

    Sunday morning, July15, was the Appreciation Day for Reverend Terry Robinson who is the pastor at Lane Lincoln CME Church on Tanner Road in Hodgenville.

    This is his first year at Lane Lincoln. During his day of appreciation, friends from various locations came to celebrate this day. I first heard him preach at First Baptist when Lane Lincoln fellowshipped with us during morning services and he preached for the first time there. I was very impressed with his preaching and singing. I had the opportunity to talk and found about the real Reverend Terry Robertson.

  • 20 Under 30: Huge Success

    First, I would like to say thank you. Thank you to anyone and everyone who helped in any way with our first ever “20 UNDER 30” program. We had a lot of help during the past month trying to put together something not only we, the newspaper, could be proud of, but something the community could be proud of as well. Between photos, catering, and sponsors, there is a plethora of people I would love to highlight for their service to this program. But I wanted to take the time to say thank you to the community.
