    So, how do you like your bananas? Firm, with a tinge of green? Yellow, and no spots? Or soft and speckled?

    I prefer mine just barely ripe with no spots. If I’m baking banana bread though, I use bananas that are almost black. The riper, the more stout the flavor. Bananas, like most fruits, are very versatile and add a delicious, sweet flavor to any food or drink. This week’s column is all things banana. I’ve included three of my favorite banana recipes.

    It’s never too late to change. Is that really true?

    Recently a friend shared about a men’s small group he was part of some years back. He said that without exception each man shared that they had tried and failed to change themselves.

    As Christians they could not figure out why? They had followed all the religious rules and world’s suggestions, but no success.
