  • Have you ever thought about how certain events, words, situations, people, etc. are able to greatly encourage us?

  • A number of years ago a woman called me at work, wanting to tell me her story.

    She wanted to tell someone who would believe her and not laugh, someone who believes that God can and does do strange and wonderful, impossibly improbable things.

    She had heard that I believe that God makes pigs fly.

    That I do, although I haven’t seen any in a very long time, but I’m praying that I will.

  • Do volatile markets cause you sleepless nights? Are you to the point that you want to pull the plug on your investments?

    You’re not alone. Many investors want to disregard all logic and, unfortunately, make bad decisions when markets are turbulent. However, making investment decisions based on emotion, rather than good judgement, is usually the absolute worst thing you can do for your family’s financial future.

    Special to the Banner

    The printed word is still popular and valuable.

    Each year, the Bedford Rotary Club presents all third graders in county schools with personalized dictionaries for them to use throughout their school years. These are not just full of word definitions, but contain many important facts about our country, such as our state geographies, a listing of our presidents, and the U.S. Constitution. Students have expressed how they have valued these books many times in past years.
