    People in the poultry industry raise the turkeys. Bakers prepare breads, rolls, pies and cakes.
    Vegetables depend on farmland and farmers for cultivation, harvesters for harvesting, packers and truckers for packaging and hauling.

  • I love a good conversion story, that moment or series of moments that lead up to a person going from not belonging to Jesus to belonging to him.
    I remember telling my friend Mike that it was like getting married. Either you are or you aren’t. I told him you can think you’re married, say you’re married, live with another person as if you’re married, but unless you’ve signed the marriage license and said, “I do,” you’re not married.

  • Since last year I’ve gotten three new podmates at work, all millennials (those born in the 1980s to the early 2000s).
    One just turned 30, one just turned 27 and one, at 22, is younger than my favorite denim jacket that I still wear.
    I call them my pod kids and they call me their pod mom.
    Of the three, the 30-year-old, was horrified to learn that she is a millennial. She had me watch a “Millennials in the Workplace” You Tube video that hilariously portrayed her generation as, among other things, always expecting a reward for doing their job.
