Hull: The eyes of an owl
This last week has been filled with many challenging moments for my immediate family. Interestingly enough, I have been strangely but keenly aware of my surroundings and the interaction of people who went out of their way to make a difference in my life. It was almost like an out-of-body...

Jackie Hope: Who’s driving the Mystery Machine?
Who wrote the best mystery stories you’ve ever read? Mickey Spillane? Agatha Christie? The guy who invented “5-Minute Mysteries?” Remember those 5-minute quickie mysteries? The ones the big kids at church camp always tried to stump the little kids with? You’d get 5 minutes...

Hull: Shine your light!
The first thing that you should notice from my title is that I didn’t use the common phrase of “let your light shine.” While I do believe that there are certainly times when it is important to play a passive role, I am passionate about the active part that we can play in the...

Jackie Hope: ‘Empire’ state of mind
We know this guy. And he just returned from The Great American Railroad Trek. Epic. Let’s call him Lawyer J. Because he’s a lawyer, and because there is a J in his name. And because it makes him sound real cool, and all, like Will Smith in the “Men in Black” movie series. While...

Johnson: Being the light for others
Picture a flashlight. Simple enough to understand, right? Light comes out of one end and you use it when it’s dark. They are extremely helpful for finding your way to your car at night, finding that tool that you lost, or finding where exactly you put those s’mores on your summer...

Small Town Style: Bundled up with boots
Winter is wonderful. Who doesn’t love sledding, ice skating and hot chocolate? If you’re lucky, you get to stay inside, all bundled up and read a good book or catch up on “Friends.” However, most of us don’t always get to do that. We have to venture into the cold, and when...
