How to Stay Married – to the Same Person – for Fifty Years

Congratulations, Mom and Dad! FIFTY YEARS of marriage!! Now that’s a loooooong time!!!

I am convinced that we, as Christ-followers, need to celebrate Biblical marriage, especially those unions that have survived for many years. It really is a big deal for a man and woman to reach the celebratory milestones of one anniversary after another. […]

Bible Preaching: Is It a Thing of the Past?

Yesterday I got a promotional packet in the mail from a nationally known Christian publisher. Enclosed was a sample of a new Bible study for students along with a cover letter from the entity’s Director of Students. The first sentence of his letter certainly was a “hook” for me.
“Most of us would struggle if […]

Happy Birthday to Candise!! 36 Years & Counting!!!

A few years ago, I strongly disliked my birthday, but I think I’ve figured out why. Back when Rusty and I were in our thirties, we were in the fiercest part of our unsuccessful procreative battle. With each birthday, I was reminded that we were getting another year closer to not being able to […]

The pink cleats and gloves on NFL players. The reminders are ever before us. During this month, the awareness of breast cancer is being promoted. Survivors are being honored; […]

I GOT HIM! A Long Time Ago!

Twenty-three years is a LONG time! Just ask my husband, Rusty Farmer!

I cannot believe it. This month Rusty and I will celebrate our 23rd wedding anniversary. I remember years ago, my pastor’s wife telling me that she and our pastor had been married 16 years, and I thought, “My goodness! That’s a long time. […]

Chasing Turkeys: A Family Affair

I’m so glad I included “Somewhere Around Elkhorn” as a category for the EGM posts! Every blog needs a catch-all place! And a brief report of this spring’s turkey season fits nicely here. Don’t you think?

ROUGH! That pretty much sums up this year’s season. It’s the consensus of most all turkey hunters – at […]

Spring Break 2015: The Value of Pushing Life’s “Pause” Button

This past week my family and I traveled to Fort Walton Beach for a few days of much needed relaxation and family time. Prior to leaving town, I hesitated telling anyone our spring break plans. It’s crazy how I almost felt guilty, even spoiled, for being able to go on this trip. But I […]
