  • Only the Lord has conquered death

    From the writings of the Rev. Billy Graham, Billy Graham Literary Trust|Updated Apr 11, 2023

    Q: No wonder Christmas is a more favored holiday than Easter. Christmas speaks of a new life [the infant Jesus] that brought joy.

    Keely Larson, KHN-UM Legislative News Service|Updated Apr 11, 2023

    In between sets of tumbling warmups, Adrienne Prashar crossed the gym to where she had stashed her diabetes supplies and tested her blood sugar. Prashar, who was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes the day before her 13th birthday, said tumbling usually drops her blood sugar levels.

Prashar...
