  • “I like teenagers. I’m weird that way,” Sheryl Lett Chapman said.

    She not only works with a group of 11th- and 12th-grade girls at Memorial United Methodist Church, where her husband is pastor, but also at the Lincoln Village Youth Development Center. 

    The latter is her passion.

    Someone at her church who mentors at Lincoln Village asked if Chapman would be interested in mentoring. Chapman admitted mentoring wasn’t her thing but she had volunteered as an art teacher in various places.

  • Music is a medium for the message country and gospel singer Robert Taylor wants to pass along.

    “I’m a minister, and my main goal is to tell people about the Gospel,” Taylor said.

    “Originally when I started, I was a big Elvis Presley fan,” Taylor said.

  • Valentine’s Day arrived late in our household this year.

    To be specific, it arrived two weeks later, on the last weekend in February.

    My girlfriend, Rebecca Ricks, and I are not in the habit of moving around holidays arbitrarily. In fact, I think this was the first time in 25 years we celebrated Valentine’s Day on a different day. But these were special circumstances.

    So what caused this change of plans?

    Two words: kidney stone.

    Not mine. Hers.
