    One of the Internet blogs I follow, “The Stretch Marks Blog,” is written by a woman in Texas, Melissa Lee.

    She’s beyond hilarious, loves big hair, “The Bachelor,” her crazy family, chocolate and Jesus.

    She writes mostly about superficial stuff, but not really. There’s a depth to her faith that shines through even her weekly “The Bachelor” recaps.

    2016 is here, and for most of us the new year comes with lots of plans and goals … and unfortunately, a few extra pounds.

    This year, instead of backing away from the table and ending up hungry (and not a very happy person to be around), I’ve decided to simply fill the table with healthier foods. I am not going to make the same mistake as last year by beginning a rigorous exercise routine with a hungry belly.

    Touted as the youngest ordained minister in history, 4-year-old Marjoe Gortner burst onto the Holy Ghost revival scene in the late 1940s.

    His father, a second-generation preacher, trained the boy, who had a talent for sweeping and pointed gestures, to proclaim the name of “Jay-zus” — and bilk money from the faithful who came to hear him preach.

    My New Year’s Eve celebrations are usually spent at home with my husband and children and maybe a few close friends and family.

    But just because its spent here on the farm, playing board games, drinking sparkling grape juice and trying to stay awake till 12:01 a.m. doesn’t mean that I don’t put a lot of effort in to what snacks I will serve. Since both of my kids really like to help out in the kitchen, I need to make sure this is something they want to help prepare and eat.
