Community Corner by Shelby Hulstein
“I’ve been waiting for this my whole life!” How many times have you said this in your lifetime, this year, or even today? I don’t think there’s anything wrong with looking forward to achieving our goals and seeing our dreams come true, but we’re in such a hurry to see those fulfilled that we aren’...

“I’m doing my part.” These words are paired with photos of people holding up little white cards that show they have received the COVID-19 vaccine.

The events of 2020 and the beginning of this year caught up to me. Recently, as I was brushing my puppy, Brinkley, I started to cry, out of the blue. It wasn’t for a single, specific reason, but rather the weight of all of the different emotions my heart was carrying became too much; they...

Last week, our community was attacked when a wicked man opened fire in the Buffalo Allina Clinic. An innocent life was taken, and others are facing a long road to recovery. These past few days have been a roller-coaster of emotions, from saying some choice words about the shooter to holding back...

How do you give and receive love? This is the question author Gary Chapman explores in his book, “The 5 Love Languages.” Whether you’re married, dating, single, or simply want to better love those around you, I highly recommend reading this book and taking the quiz to understand your love language...
