  • For Virginia Broyles, farming was more than a way of life.

    The 102-year-old spent many years working her farm in Brownsboro, before spending the last nine years at Friendship Health and Rehab in Pewee Valley.

    But thanks to a partnership between Friendship and Opal’s Dream, Broyles was once again transported back to the farm on Saturday morning with the help of the Oldham County Historical Society’s Antique Iron Club.

  • For one La Grange family, a nearly three-year dream to visit Mickey Mouse is coming true.

    Hayli Nobles, 4, is one of many children granted Make-a-Wish dreams every year. Since being diagnosed with actute myleoid leukemia in 2010, her dream has been to see the princesses at Disney World.

    On Monday, Hayli’s wish was granted, as a limo pulled up to the family’s La Grange residence to take them to the airport for a trip to Orlando.

  • Fifteen years ago God sent me on an amazing journey to China to adopt my youngest daughter, Danielle. I knew as I looked into the eyes of the bewildered little girl (she was two and a half years old when we adopted her), that the amazing journey was just beginning. I have to admit I had an element of self-pride when I thought about how we would change this little orphan’s life by bringing her to the U.S. Was I in for a great surprise when I found out God had plans to use my daughter to teach me many important Bible lessons about life.

  • The mother asks her son what he learned in Sunday School and he tells her a story about how Moses and his people had the Red Sea in front of them and the Egyptian chariots behind them. So Moses calls the Army Corps of Engineers up, they build a floating bridge in short order, the people race across the bridge and then cut it loose just as the chariots arrive and they escape certain death.

    The mother looks on in horror, and exclaims, “That is not really what they taught you in Sunday School is it?”

  • Students from all of Oldham County Middle and High Schools will be joining thousands of other youth on athletic fields all across the nation on Wednesday, Oct. 8, to share their Christian faith with fellow students during the ninth annual national Fields of Faith event. This rapidly-growing, interdenominational outreach event will be held at more than 450 locations throughout the nation on this same date.

  • I think one of the best definitions of sin is anything we do that separates us from God. When we talk about sin we find that humans make very little of sin and God makes so much of it. People joke about it, even brag about their sins. Much of our entertainment glorifies sinful life choices.

    God hates sin (Proverbs 6:16ff.). God says that the “wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23). God says that sin is a very serious matter.

    A fellow named Willie was deep in debt and was thinking of committing suicide.

  • Elmer Towns tells about a motorcycle gang member who was dramatically converted to faith in Jesus Christ. The next Sunday he did the only thing he knew he should do and went to church. Nobody in the church knew him and he walked down to the second aisle and sat in the pew. The people stared because he looked the part: big and burly, bearded, long hair, black jacket and lots of tattoos.

  • When Patty Sweetall of Prospect turned her athletic efforts from competitive running and triathlons to swimming, she never thought she could be a world champion.

    Sweetall, 54, recently won ninth place in the 100-meter breaststroke, sixth place in the 200-meter breaststroke and participated in the 50-meter at the FINA World Masters Swimming Championships in Montreal, Canada in August.

  • One day, when Vice President Calvin Coolidge was presiding over the Senate, one senator angrily told another to go “straight to hell.” The offended senator complained to Coolidge as presiding officer and Coolidge looked up from the book he had been leafing through while listening to the debate and wittily replied. “I’ve looked through the rule book,” he said, “You don’t have to go.”
