A New Way to View New Year's Resolutions Potters Ranch http://www.pottersranch.org/index.php?article=133 Wed, 24 Jan 2018 10:18:46 -0500             Image result for new years resolution

Growing up, New Year’s Eve was not a big deal to me; it was simply the turning of the clock and the beginning of another month.  As I got older and learned the value of a good mulligan, the holiday took on another meaning; one that is stoked each time “Auld Lang Syne” is sung by groups of friends.

I suppose these feelings aren’t exclusive to only me.  Ask anyone what their New Year’s resolutions are and you’ll hear myriad answers ranging from weight loss to being a better person or parent to working less or even making more money. Don’t wait too long to ask that icebreaker, though; statistics say that the majority of New Year's resolutions - 80% - will be broken by the second week of February.  It’s a tough break]]> 133 Children's Christmas Adventure Potters Ranch http://www.pottersranch.org/index.php?article=132 Fri, 08 Dec 2017 15:08:10 -0500 The  Boone County Businessmen’s Association working with the Boone County Board of Education, in  cooperation with Potter’s Ranch brought much holiday cheer and happiness to children in need this past week as they worked together to present the annual Children’s Christmas Adventure.

Sharing a thought Potters Ranch http://www.pottersranch.org/index.php?article=36 Thu, 04 Feb 2010 15:12:02 -0500 You are one-of-a-kind

“He’s just a carpenter, the son of Mary and the brother of James, Joseph, Judas, and Simon” (Mark 6:3, New Living Translation).

Don’t you hate how people do that? "Oh, he is just the mailman. She is just a stay-at-home mom. Oh, don’t you know—he’s just so and so’s brother. She is just the new girl.” Don’t let anyone label you like that. You are a one-of-a-kind, original creation. It is not just by chance that you live in this time and this place. You have the ability to impact this world in a way that no one else can. Don’t be discouraged if others don’t recognize this. Remember, labels are for people who don’t understand the contents of what (or who) they are looking at.

—Valerie Gorham, bookkeeper at Camp Berachah Ministries
