Today's Opinions

  • Jesus said: We need not fear death

    Most people are scared to death of death.  That may be a silly statement, but it is true.  Look at all the lists of what scares people the most.  Death is number one.  We feel death’s presence when we enter or leave a hospital, so most people try not to.  We reflect on mortality every time we go into a funeral home, so people rarely do.  We see death on the nightly news every night, and we try not to relate, not to take it personal, but it is.  It is very personal.  

  • How to kick butt and use the gym as an antidepressant

     One month ago today, I finally did something I’ve always wanted to do.  I hired a personal trainer.  I have worked out sporadically over the years, but have a really hard time staying motivated. Out of the 16 years I have carried a membership, I have probably only spent a total of 36 hours at the gym.  This includes dropping kids off in the childcare center, socializing with other moms and spending extra time in the locker room so I could have a few minutes of peace before picking the kids up again.  

  • Massie: Innovation Act threatens American inventors

    By Rep. Thomas Massie

    At the Northern Kentucky Regional First LEGO League Robotics tournament last December, I marveled at the imagination and creativity displayed by so many young people.  In these students, I saw the spirit of ingenuity and a culture of invention that have been critical to our nation’s economic success for over two centuries. I was reminded of the competitions I participated in as a young inventor, and of the American spirit of innovation that inspired me to obtain 29 patents.

  • What do you owe in light of the price Jesus paid?

    Charlie Brown’s dog Snoopy is typing a letter on top of his doghouse.

    “Dear IRS, I am writing to you to cancel my subscription. Please take my name off your mailing list.”

    We read in Romans 13:8a, “Let no debt remain outstanding.” We know about money, and way too much about debts. This verse reminds us to pay our bills, as if we need any help remembering that. Most of us will probably agree that not only do we know a lot about money, we probably think too much about money.

    Too much tax

    When we first moved to La Grange almost six years ago, I stopped by Kroger’s to buy a six-pack of beer to share with the movers after they had finished moving all the furniture into our new home. I was surprised to find not only did they not sell beer, but no one else in La Grange did either. Wow. What kind of a place did we move to?

  • Cultivating intimacy: a practical guide

    Love is that grand emotion that makes your life feel full. The reason love works is that it takes your attention off of you and focuses it on someone more important. To love is to wish the other’s highest good.

    Blessed are those who cultivate intimacy which is at the heart of love. I believe that there are five ways to cultivate intimacy. I have watched many loving relationships blossom in these ways.

    Altruism. This means that I care about you and not just about myself. The best way to compliment each other is frequently.
