    Kentucky has more than 90,000 miles of rivers and streams. Each stream eventually meets the Mississippi River, either directly or via the Ohio River. That means everything we put into the water can potentially reach as far as the Gulf of Mexico.

  • Traveling in a gospel band

    Growing up in the 1970s the cool thing was to start a band. If you were from the city you started a rock band; from the country, a country band; and if you were from church you started a gospel quartet. That is how I came to be a part of a gospel group.
    We had sung locally for several months before we got our first out of town invitation. I answered the phone, and the pastor on the other end said, “I hear ya’ll are a fine group of young people and we would love to have you come sing at our third Saturday night gospel singing.”

  • A beautiful broken life

    When Michelle Smith talks about God, tears trickle down her cheeks.
    A 13th-generation native Floridian, she’s selling or giving away all of her possessions to move to the Congo in central Africa, one of the most volatile areas on the planet.
