    “I thought of this ministry a couple of years ago,” said Holly Hawkins, who along with Emily Spurlock is spearheading the effort. “They do something similar in Lexington.”

  • Easy recipes make tailgating season more fun

    Tailgating season means football, friends, and good food.

    Are you looking to bring something different this year? I have a few tips to get you started and the rest is left to your imagination.

    A lot of people struggle with how to keep the food warm in the colder temperatures. The slow cooker will keep most things warm for a couple of hours even after you unplug it. But, what about the other stuff? Try lining a cardboard box with foil, grab some old towels or blankets and make your own hot box. Cardboard is an excellent insulator and the towels trap the heat in.

  • Nothing sad about going to Heaven

    The message was as simple as it was stark: “Cancel this subscription, please. I’m going to Heaven.”

    That message came to me last week on a subscription renewal form, one of thousands upon thousands we mail out each year, usually with nothing more in return than a check or credit card number.

  • Think about safety during fall harvest

    Fall harvest season is a busy time for Kentucky farmers and their families. It also is a peak season for agricultural injuries and an especially important time for farm families to pay attention to safety.

    Take time to talk to workers about safety. You need to be sure all workers are trained and physically capable of operating equipment and that they understand the safety procedures.
