Cheryl Hughes: Simple Things During Hard Times

There are so many little things I’d forgotten to notice that I am noticing these days.  I watched that Disney Sing Along on ABC a few days ago.  I was in the house alone, and I found myself singing at the top of my lungs.  They had the Mouseketeer ears bouncing across the lyrics on the screen like the famous bouncing ball on “Sing Along With Mitch.”  “When You Wish Upon a Star” was my

Jarrod Jacobs: Life is Unsettling

Am I the only one who has noticed how much of life has become unsettled? Maybe it has always been this way, and my mind has not grasped it until now. We sing, “On Christ the solid rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand.”  Could truer words be said or sung today? Perhaps things are going at a faster speed than they used to? I am not sure. I think about how this year started. It seems like every day there is something different that requires our attention because it is vital to us. Do we remember the impeachment of our President?

Andy Sullivan: Against the Grain

Cheryl Hughes: Essential Workers

Third-grade math is kicking my butt.  I have been trying to keep my granddaughter, Sabria, on track, while she figures the area and perimeter of polygons, and I am nearly blind from counting, measuring and figuring those little suckers on her computer screen.  It doesn’t seem to bother Sabria, who figures everything in her head.  I figure on paper in order to check her work—she occasionally adds two numbers together wrong.  I try to get her to use a pencil and paper, and she will for a little while, just to appease me.  I heard a celebrity s

It came to my attention a while back that the #1 shoplifted book in America is the Bible! Just think of the irony of that fact!

I’ve shared with you movies I’ve been watching in quarantine.  I’ve shared apps and books that I’ve downloaded and am reading.  Today, I’ll talk about something else that is very beneficial in times like these: music.  Music is a huge part of life-especially mine.  We wake up to it(usually), we workout to it, we listen for leisure and

Since the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is keeping us at home, my daughters and I have been more interested in-home cooking. We often enjoy the one-pan-meal kind of dish. The recipes below come from friends and family.
