Kaelyn's Korner

Weekly column by Kaelyn Pfenning


Lent is a time of repentance, fasting and preparation for the coming of Easter.

While I have never officially followed Lent, I agree with the general principles of repentance, fasting and preparation any time of the year.

Born sinners, we are all in need of repentance.


Since its founding over 200 years ago, America has been governed by Judeo-Christian values. Those values, however, have been shifting over last few decades.

With the Bible and prayer removed from schools, today’s students are not getting the same foundation.


Roles are important for knowing what we need to do.

In my life, I can see how I am much healthier when I recognize my roles and live accordingly.

As a wife, I am now under the authority of my husband.

I am very thankful for his leadership, strength, care and partnership in this journey of life.


Markets around the world are adopting the free market concept.

In the free market, competition allows for the best to win, the worst to be replaced with something better and the mediocre to improve or disappear.

Greer is under construction.

As I drive from downtown to Wade Hampton Boulevard on a regular basis, I observe construction around the area.

South Carolina, including Trade Street in Greer, is filled with hidden treasures in the form of restaurants, shops and more.


Last week, the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office invited local media outlets to participate in a Media Day Training.

Sgt. Shane Craig opened by discussing a county policy, highlighting the cycle everyone follows when encountered with any given situation.


Many people make up this world.

Different races, personalities and talents provide for diversity which can lead to the development of new ideas.

Every individual has something to contribute.

Throughout history, groups of people have experienced persecution or oppression in one form or another.

Healthy living

Healthy living begins with eating well and staying active.

Most natural foods have nutritional value; though, everything in moderation is true where food is concerned.

An important rule of thumb is to eat in proportion to our daily physical activity.


A new year, month, week or day offers a much-needed fresh start.

The mundane of day-to-day life—sleeping, eating, working—can become routine, but the beginning of something new can bring renewed focus.

I have some lofty ideas, but a key to success is tangible goals.
