By Don Doran / 11 months ago

KISS Good morning! Start your day with a praise to Him. In a sales class many years ago, the instructor told us to KISS! We were all a bit taken back until he explained it meant, Keep It Simply Simple! He went on to show us we sometimes make things a lot more complicated than […]

Forgive & Forget?

By Holly Settles / 11 months ago

Forgive & Forget? Over the past several months, someone very close to me has endured a painful hardship. I’ve listened to the struggles, knowing that the only thing I could do was offer support, encouragement, and prayer – because that is all I have to give, being an “outsider” to the situation.

It’s The Power Behind The Story!!!

By Susan Niswonger / a couple of years ago

Every year, after Thanksgiving, the controversy begins.  Should I say Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays?  Is it Christmas Vacation or Winter Break?  Can we sing Silent Night or should we stick with Jingle Bells for the School musical program?  Should we chance setting up the Nativity Scene in front of the court house, a Christmas […]

A Sure Thing!

By Don Doran / a couple of years ago

Good morning! I hope your week is off to a great start and that you enjoyed your weekend. We are always looking for a “sure thing.” Something that we can know for certain is going to work to our benefit, but sadly enough there are few sure things in life. In fact one man said […]
