Kaelyn's Korner

Weekly column by Kaelyn Pfenning


A few weeks ago, I planted a little garden with green beans and cucumbers.

Then, the rains came for a couple of weeks straight, and we traveled last weekend.

This past Friday, I had a chance to catch up on weeding.


Brad and I took a road trip to Alabama this past weekend.

We left Friday after work, around 3 p.m., and we arrived in Dothan, Alabama, about seven hours later.

Going through a time zone, we gained an hour.


This time of year is a good time to reflect.

With graduations happening around the area and Memorial Day just passed, it is good to remember where we have been personally as well as nationally.

When we look back, we can gain perspective to move forward.


Rain has been in the forecast for the past couple of weeks.

I enjoy thunderstorms with heavy rainfall, claps of thunder and streaks of lightning.

Occasionally, I get a bit nervous or scared.

But I love to curl up with a good book inside the coziness of my own home with a cup of hot tea to sip.


My appreciation for the role of motherhood has grown as I have.

This past weekend gave each of us an opportunity to honor or remember our moms.

Brad and I took advantage of this past Sunday to do just that.

Sunday morning, we woke up earlier than usual to travel down to my sister’s place in Anderson.


Brad and I stay busy with working full-time, hosting and fellowshipping.

This past weekend, we took dinner to a family of seven—one of our elders and his family—and we ate with them.

After their five children went to bed, we hung out a bit longer.


I love my husband Brad very much.

He is my best friend and my dearest love, and I am happy to walk through life by his side.

Three character traits really draw me to Brad: his seeking after God, his yearning for fellowship and his pursuing growth.

Blue Bloods

When we get home from a long day, Brad and I enjoy a good TV show.

On Sunday, we went out to eat after church with a group of brothers and sisters in Christ, spent a few hours in fellowship and learned about Blue Bloods. We watched a few episodes that night.


Psallos is a team of Christian artists - songsters and singers, ministers and musicians, thinkers and theologians.

This team has put together artistic songs of worship that are consistent with God’s word, rich in sound doctrine and intelligible for the sake of edification.

Last Tuesday night, Psallos returned to our church.


Walking and talking is one of my favorite ways to spend time with a friend.

Early Saturday morning, I drove to pick up a good friend, who I originally met at North Greenville University.

We’ve been in and out of touch but are able to pick up where we left off.
