    My family traveled to Arizona to see family. During the drive, it occurred to me that I couldn’t remember Arizona’s state motto. Despite bullying my memory to give up the goods, the answer stubbornly remained in hiding. In true Grinch fashion, I decided, “If I can’t remember the motto I’ll make one instead.” After making this decision the rest came easy. None of these are intended to mock Arizona or Arizonans. Some of my most beloved people live in this fascinating state.

  • Editor’s note: This column is adapted from Nancy Kennedy’s book, “Praying With Women of the Bible,” which is no longer in print.

    A number of years ago, amid the mice and filth of a Taliban prison in Afghanistan, two ordinary American young women wrote and sang praise songs to the Lord.

    Living in a small town allows for a simple lifestyle filled with close friendly bonds. On Dec. 22, the fellowship of Bedford Christian Church epitomized the qualities of living in a small town while performing “When Christmas Left Rattler Canyon.”

  • Heroes come in all shapes and sizes. Throughout our journey we encounter a wide variety of people, places and lessons. Although many people are strangers passing by, others will uplift, encourage, inspire and motivate you. Dave Taylor is one of those people, who I classify as a hero.

  • This time of year my email inbox gets flooded with holiday tips.
    Unless they involve tips to get free cookies or pie I generally delete them without even opening them.
    However, I got one the other day from strategy consultant Lisa McLeod that caught my attention. She writes a weekly column, usually about success in business, but sometimes she writes about more general topics, like her most recent one: “Tips for a Horrible Holiday.”

  • When I first started writing professionally, I mostly wrote humor stories for Christian magazines.

    And you have to know the ending, the punchline, often before you write your opening line.
    With humor, you write to the punchline. It’s all about how you end.

  • I’ve always been a champion of the underdog. Perhaps because I wasn’t on the A-List myself. My circle of friends was composed of fine people. They, like me, were not easily categorized. However we were regarded by others, it didn’t stop us from having a lot of fun.

  • The other day someone congratulated our features editor, Sarah Gatling, on her promotion, which was nice, except she didn’t get a promotion.
    Sarah said if she got a promotion she’d like to be promoted to potentate -- that sounds like a cool thing to be, she said.
    It reminded me of the hymn, “Crown Him With Many Crowns,” in which Jesus is called “the potentate of time,” and also reminded me that a few years ago, Sarah gave me a very old hymnal, copyrighted in 1924, called “Harvest Hymns.”
