Patty Craig: A Slice of Time

Traditionally, summer has been a popular time to vacation – a time to relax and play. Laura Marano said, “Chilling out on the bed in your hotel room watching television, while wearing your own pajamas, is sometimes the best part of a vacation.” When vacationing, I enjoy the flexibility to rest or read or walk with little purpose.


Legislative Update Representative Rebecca Raymer

2023 Session Results: Transportation issues prioritized

This week I would like to share with you some of the key legislation the legislature passed in strengthening our state’s transportation system, transportation workforce, and promoting safety. Good transportation policy is the foundation of any economically and socially prospering state, and I am proud of the legislation we produced.


Cheryl Hughes: Senseless

My senses have staged a revolt.  I’m not referring to my sense—common or otherwise—I’m talking about my five senses.  It’s like they are conspiring against me.  


Jarrod Jacobs: “Things Baptism Does”

Baptism is a subject that deserves our study since it is discussed often in the New Testament. What does baptism do for man? What purpose does it serve?


Andy Sullivan: Against the Grain

I’ve been catching up on Cobra Kai on Netflix.


Cheryl Hughes: Hunting Behavior

One morning last week, Garey stepped onto the back sidewalk to feed our outside cat, Blackjack, and after he put the food into the cat bowl, he stood up and hooted like an owl.  That afternoon, he opened his truck door, then slammed it shut…twice.  He didn’t put anything into or take anything out of the truck, he just opened the door then slammed it shut.  It’s turkey season, and hunting causes people to do weird stuff.


Jarrod Jacobs: "From Everlasting To Everlasting"

Some may be confused about the time frame of the Lord’s work for man. Some view Christ’s work as limited to the three years in the first century in which He lived in Palestine, taught people, then died on the cross, was buried, and resurrected on the third day. Limiting the Lord’s work in this manner is inaccurate. In truth, Christ’s work in saving man is three-fold, encompassing the past, present, and future. It truly spans time “from everlasting to everlasting.” How is this possible?


Patty Craig: A Slice of Time

With warmer weather, my spring to-do list for the house and yard has grown. I want to complete most of the tasks by mid-June – before the daily temperatures soar. Stephen Covey advised: “Goals are pure fantasy unless you have a specific plan to achieve them.” So, throughout the next few weeks, I have written specific maintenance, minor renovation, and cleaning tasks on my calendar.


Sentimental Journey By Cheryl Hughes

On Saturday, I took the birdhouse from its perch on the gate post that leads into my raised beds, so I could repaint it.  Garey was going by on the mower as I was loosening the screws that held it in place.

He stopped.

“I’m going to repaint this,” I said.

“There’s nothing to repaint,” he said.

He was right.  The birdhouse was in bad shape.  One side was crumbling from rot, the nails had mostly worked themselves loose, and it was basically falling apart.  If I had sneezed while trying to remove it from its home of seven years, it would have been no more.


Jarrod Jacobs: Love In Marriage

Last week, we began a study of love in marriage. Specifically, we began studying what the Bible says about love from I Corinthians 13 and made applications to the marriage relationship. Why write about this subject and remind men and women of love in marriage? For one reason, it is because the Bible talks about such things. Indeed, this ought to be reason enough for the one who respects God’s word! Another reason for studying love in marriage, however, is because of all the practical lessons we learn from marriage. Consider the following:
