Facing fears with a leap of faith

In My Own Little World by Aubrey Broussard I’m not afraid of much but for me, my fear of heights is right up there with my deep-rooted phobia of commitment and singing in front of an audience. A couple of years ago I was presented with the opportunity to somewhat address those fears when I […]

Reaping dollars from addiction

The Way I See It by Don West At least since the days of Prohibition, and probably before, there existed a group of people who considered alcohol, in any form, detrimental to our being, mentally, physically and spiritually.  There was even an organization (The Women’s Temperance Union) which staged protests and marches in towns and […]

The truth and the whole truth

I’m Just Sayin’ by Sheila Smith The Sundays of my childhood followed the same schedule each week, rain or shine, sickness or health.

I’m Just Sayin’ by Sheila Smith Spring is here! It is the time of year when yards are perfectly mowed and edged, shrubs are manicured, mulch is replaced, soil is tilled and seeded, beds are refreshed with new flowers and a few more bits of decor are added around the patio. Except at my house. […]

Fish do not care, but customers do

The Way I See It by Don West Through the years, I have spent a considerable amount of time in customer service. Let me note here that I came up in a different environment than many of the young people today. One always addressed someone with “yes, sir” or “no, sir”, “yes, Mrs. Smith” or […]

‘Happiness is a warm puppy’

Lessons Learned by Glenetta Shuey I am a dog lover. Much of the time that my children were growing up, we had several dogs of different breeds. My two favorites were a lovable purebred golden retriever and a feisty runt of questionable breeding. Cinnamon was our retriever who loved our kids and was quite protective. She […]

A lesson in faith, patience and timing

In My Own Little World by Aubrey Broussard After a particularly joyful weekend, I received a profound blessing during my church service last Sunday morning followed by an immediate attack on my circumstances that night.
