A Mountain Top View

When my husband and I had been married for six months, we took a ski trip to Colorado with his family. My husband had been skiing once before and loved it. I had never had a pair of skis on my feet, but he ran through the basics on the plane ride to Steamboat Springs and assured me I would be a natural. He was so certain of my innate ability that he told me to skip the bunny slope and took me straight to the top of the mountain on my very first attempt.

Roots & Wings

Stepping out of the small town of Atlanta, Texas, into the bright spotlight of the University of Kentucky’s basketball courts, freshman Daimion Collins is finding his stride and making his mark. … Collins is a quick, mobile, agile and springy post player who flashes truly elite upside… … He is a super long player with a reported 7'5'' wingspan (and it shows). He’s also a quick twitch athlete who is fluid in his movements, has elite first and second jump and is simply a far superior athlete than any other player on the court.

Imagine my harrowing dismay when I reluctantly attended my church’s Super Bowl party in 2012 only to find out that during Madonna’s halftime show (the only reason I would even attend a Super Bowl party to begin with), they were going to be cutting the projector screen off and giving us a mini-sermon instead. Shock. Disappointment. Anger… many emotions were rising within me. … No one may have understood the POWER that Madonna bringing a then fresh faced Nicki Minaj on stage with her would’ve had at the time, but I, at a ripe 14 years of age, KNEW! I knew, and I wanted to see it all go down.

No Gym, No Problem

A regular exercise routine can be transformative, and the benefits go far beyond the possible changes to our appearance. A healthy body is often followed by a healthy mind, a healthy level of confidence and a healthy outlook for the future. Whether you prefer strength training, high intensity and cardiovascular training or focus shifting flexibility training, make a commitment to get your body moving in 2022 and experience a whole new you. If you can’t get to the gym, don’t let that stop you. Here are a few exercises to get you started at home.

I’ve heard it said before that New Year’s resolutions are made to be broken. If that is the case, I am going about my resolutions the wrong way. I actually begin the year believing I can achieve my goals. … It always starts off the same way for me. I am determined to stop feeling like a blob of lifeless dough, but never seem to be ready TODAY because Whataburger is only five minutes from my apartment.

TXK Book Club—Books on Santa’s List

Christmas is just a few days away and shopping lists and to-do lists are (hopefully) dwindling. But if you’re anything like me, there is always one person who still needs a gift. Or at least I think I’m missing someone. I want to offer some suggestions for the hard to shop for people in your life and perhaps it will help me check off those last few gifts too.

Whoever said Christmas was the “most wonderful time of the year” has clearly never driven The Shuffle with their friends on a warm summer night with the speakers turned up and the windows down, because while a Christmas tree may be beautiful, a pool and the calming sound of a waterfall is a very close second in my opinion. … Don’t get me wrong, I’m the biggest party boy there is, and there’s no celebration like Jesus’ birthday, but I just wonder… why does it have to be so dang cold?! Why does the sun have to go down so early?! It makes me tired!

Calling the Shots

On my honor, I will never betray my integrity, my character or the public trust. I will always have the courage to hold myself and others accountable for our actions. I will always maintain the highest ethical standards and uphold the values of my community, and the office I serve. … The Law Enforcement Oath of Honor … Sworn officers play a vital role in maintaining safety and face many things every day that put them at great risk. The role they have stepped into is often a hard one and they do the dirty work to shield the rest of us from having to think about it.

Sink or Swim

I am Jed Harrelson. I am originally from Texarkana, Arkansas and have been living in Nashville, Tennessee for the last year and a half. When I first moved to Nashville, I was lead valet at an upscale downtown hotel. On my days off from the hotel, I would play at songwriting events around town and meet new people. In August 2020, they fired me as lead valet for promoting my own music to a celebrity guest, hence really beginning my music career. … While down on myself for being fired, I began looking for a new job.
