Losing a member of your family is always very difficult. The closer you are, the more painful it becomes. more
The growing season is here again, and we see the fields and garden plots beginning to show lines of green as the seeds begin to grow. It is a natural and magical process at the same time, and it renews a sense of awe in me for the wonder that is nature.  more

I was born and raised in India in a Faith Home, which was a missionary outpost. It was a rented house where my parents and some of their fellow evangelists and Bible teachers lived, trusting God for their material needs, not making any appeals for financial help, and not even supported by any salary from any source. more
Drought conditions throughout parts of central Missouri have severely limited cool-season grass production in pastures and hay fields. Seedheads have emerged on cool-season grasses, but undergrowth is thin in many places. Many producers are searching for hay or other forage sources to replenish depleted hay reserves. more
Among the natural wonders with which Missouri is richly endowed are its many rivers. more
Close to two years ago, I decided to set out on a journey to get to know myself better. more
On June 3, 1890, the Sedalia Weekly Bazoo reported that only a few days after Thomas Williamson was placed in the Pettis County Jail to await trial for the murders of Jefferson and Charlie Moore, two men from southeast of Sedalia, former neighbor Albert Bradley remembered a conversation he had with Williamson in November 1889. more
I have come to appreciate spell check and other editing programs that keep my mistakes in writing to an acceptable level. more
I have rediscovered that I am my mother’s daughter, in that I really don’t want to turn on the air conditioning until it is absolutely necessary. I enjoy hearing the outdoor sounds through open windows and doors — the robins, cardinals, and other birds sing to me and give me peace. Not quite so pleasing is the sound of 18-wheelers screeching down Broadway, slamming on their brakes or shifting gears. Ambulance and law enforcement sirens are also not enjoyable, but somehow, that cacophony fades away into the background, and I am left with the music of the birds and the coolness of the morning air. more

Our family loves dogs. I can’t remember a time in our lives when we haven’t had a least one to love. At one point, we had five at the same time. That was a handful, but we adored each of them. more

A few weeks ago, I was in the Children’s Department at the library for our Kid’s Night event, which is hosted at 5:30 p.m. every Monday. A new family came in and after completing the craft, the daughter asked me, “How do I get books?” She told me her family did not have library cards. I explained the process of getting a card and how to check out books. Her dad did not speak English, so she translated what I said to him and he shook his head “yes” – they could get library cards. more
