The Message of the "The Nuff"

 

It only takes a few harmful words to break a little girl's heart, and she can struggle her entire life to feel she is adequate.  Sometimes just a few words from a grown-up can help a little girl know she is infinitely valuable because she is made in God's image.

KFB Agent Keanna Steward, assisted by KFB Customer Service Representative Teresa Martin-Law, shared this message with kindergarten-age girls in Allen County by reading to them "The Nuff."

"The Nuff" by Veronica Waldrop describes the adventures of a unicorn with a broken horn who discovers the truth about herself and what it means to be enough... or a NUFF!  If you are not familiar with this amazing book, go to www.thenuff.com

Comment Column: The Family Farm, A Classroom Like No Other

I’m blessed to have grown up on our family farm in Clark County. It taught me the benefits of hard work as I learned through hands-on activities that took place every day. I discovered how to grow crops, care for animals, and to be a good steward of the land. It was a classroom like no other and my parents set an example that I carry with me daily.

Down the Backroads:  The First Day of School

I remember well my very first day of school in 1966. I was terrified. There is no other way to describe it except to say it was sheer terror. In those days, at least where I lived, preschool and kindergarten were not an option, or at least not something included in my little country school.
