  • At one time or another, we have all heard that exercise has benefits. Some of the most common benefits we tend to hear about are how exercise can help lower your risk for chronic diseases such as heart disease, stroke and diabetes, but the benefits only start there.

  • Slowly the weather is, and will be, getting warmer here in Kentucky. People are planting flowers and preparing their gardens.

    In Oregon, where I grew up, as the weather warms, the vineyards of northwest Oregon become beautifully green and luscious. The scenes are very similar to what the land of ancient Israel must have looked like in Jesus’ era. In Jesus’ day the wine industry was vital to Israel’s economy.

  • Easter has passed, but I’m still thinking about a part of the gospel story of Christ’s resurrection that I often miss.

    It happened on that Sunday.

    Early in the morning the women had gone to the tomb where they had placed Christ’s body on Friday after his crucifixion.

    The women found the tomb empty and an angel told them Jesus wasn’t there, that he had risen, just as he had said.

    That part of the story I’ve never forgotten.

  • Every April, the Kentucky Circuit Court Clerks’ Trust for Life along with the entire United States celebrates National Donate Life Month.

  • Regular physical activity is good for everyone’s health and people of all ages and body types can be physically active. May is National Physical Fitness and Sports Month, so it is a great time to spread the word about the benefits of becoming active.

  • I belong to a generation that holds to the philosophy that “a lady never tells her age.” I adhere to that policy despite the obvious physical signs that I, indeed, belong to generation that keeps certain secrets. I completely realize if time is like a river mine has nearly reached the ocean is and somewhat worse for the wear.
