  • This week’s challenge: Lose your veneer

    Years ago I had a sort of business acquaintance whom I idolized.

    I was just getting started in book writing and at the time she was one of the top names in Christian publishing.

    This woman wrote some of the funniest books I’d ever read, plus she was highly in demand as a speaker. She probably still is.

    Back then she could make audiences laugh until they wet their pants and snap her fingers and bring them to their knees in surrender to the Lord.

  • Kentucky at the heart of the nation

    One of the Commonwealth’s most famous authors, Jesse Stuart, once wrote that “if these United States can be called a body, Kentucky can be called its heart.”

    He was referring to more than just our location, of course, but his words have proven prophetic in a geographic sense as well.  It turns out that our literal place in the world is a great place to be when it comes to helping the world get what it needs.

  • High heat precautions

    Kentucky will be plagued with hot, humid weather through Friday, according to the National Weather Service.

    Take extra precautions if working outside or spending time outdoors. Reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or the evening.

    Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Wear light and loose fitting clothing when possible. And drink plenty of water.

    To reduce risk during outdoor work, OSHA recommends frequent rest breaks in shaded areas or in air conditioning.
