Understanding Suicide

Written by Deborah S. Cowell

Someone once said that the only thing we can be sure about in life is change. Even though we work hard to maintain a stable and predictable way of life, some type of change always finds a way to throw us off balance. These changes for some are exhilarating, but for most of us we experience various levels of stress or anxiety.

Helped Up

Written by Bob Crittendon

The Olympic Games in Rio are now history, full of memorable moments and tremendous triumphs.  Perhaps one of the most memorable came in a 5,000 meter qualifying event in track and field.  American runner Abbey D’Agostino and New Zealander Nikki Hamblin tripped over one another on the track and both fell to the ground.

The Most Important Win

Written by Dr. Larry Bryars

Autumn has always been my favorite season.  There are many reasons…the weather gets cooler, the leaves are changing, and it’s football season.  Already some of my favorite teams have won and lost, and we have only just begun.  

Q.  Our daughter is a special needs child, who doctors say will live about half as long as the average adult. There’s also a good chance she will be under our care her entire life. We just finished Baby Step 3 of your plan, so we have all of our debt paid off except for the house, and we have an emergency fund of three to six months of expenses saved. We have health insurance, too. However, we were wondering how the situation with our little girl affects retirement planning and college funding?

  • Brad Armagost Executive Vice President, ServisFirst Bank

    RRJ:  Growing up, you attended church with your grandparents and mom and were baptized at age 12.  Was this when you realized your need for Jesus’ offer of salvation? 

     

    Brad:  No, my baptism felt very ceremonial, like it was a graduation event for taking the baptism class at church.  It wasn’t until Young Life camp at Windy Gap, North Carolina that I realized Jesus could truly change my life.  I realized that His path to eternal life was a better choice, my peer group was healthier, and just the experience of His grace was indescribable.
