“And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” Phil.4:7

There are many robbers of daily peace; bad news and hard circumstances press us from every direction.  Many feel like giving up, but I propose another response. 

Why not allow God to come into your heart? The Peace of God and the Peace with God come by allowing Him to place you into the “Body of Christ.”  The sweet fruit of peace does not come by harder work or greater effort, but by allowing God to plant it in our hearts by the Spirit. 

Trust Him in times of trouble and He will sustain you.  God’s grace is sufficient.  He is able to help and He never fails.  Real peace comes only from the “Prince of Peace”.  Would you allow Him to rule in your heart and your life today?

PIKEVILLE — The University of Pikeville welcomed Kentucky Lt. Governor Jenean Hampton to campus on Feb. 21 as the featured speaker for the UPIKE’s Coleman College of Business Speakers and Leadership Series.

Students, faculty, staff and community members gathered in Booth Auditorium to hear how Hampton’s experiences as a student and in the military, business and government shaped her personally and professionally.

Hampton shared the progression of her career path in a corrugated box manufacturing plant, which she credits to an entrepreneurial spirit and a natural curiosity about operations within the organization.

 “It didn’t matter where I was working, I was always wondering what was going on in other departments and how they tied together,” she said. “I wanted to make my organization better.”

While serving in the U.S. Air Force and during her career, Hampton gravitated toward taking on additional duties, which often meant removing herself from her comfort zone. These behaviors, combined with a “heart to serve,” were among her recommendations for those considering political careers.

She advised the group that adaptability, flexibility and an entrepreneurial attitude are valuable qualities in the pursuit of success.

“When entrepreneurs start a business, they don’t have enough resources, they don’t have enough people and there’s no job they won’t do,” said Hampton. “They just want the company to succeed. I’ve always had an entrepreneurial mindset and I have brought that to government.”

She also highlighted the importance of eliminating distractions. “If you’re focused on the mission, it takes a lot of noise out of the equation,” she said.

During her term, Hampton is focusing her efforts on what she refers to as the “4 E’s: Entrepreneurship, Education, Emergency preparedness and being an Example.” She is also working on the Lt. Governor’s Challenge Series, which currently includes the Entrepreneurship Challenge and the Bluegrass Book Buddies Challenge.

“No matter where you work, you can bring an entrepreneurial attitude with you that will not only make your company better, it will get you noticed,” said Hampton.

Dr. Howard Roberts, dean of the Coleman College of Business, said, “Lieutenant Governor Hampton delivered a thought-provoking lecture while sharing her career experiences and encouraging those in attendance to be inquisitive. Her career proves that with an unbridled enthusiasm, one can succeed.”

Ashleigh Dotson of Prestonsburg struggled with obesity, high cholesterol and joint pain. She was borderline hyperglycemic and searching for relief.  Her health issues were constant reminders this energetic, high-spirited hairdresser was not living the life she knew she wanted. 

After extensive research she decided to reclaim her life through gastric sleeve surgery at Pikeville Medical (PMC) Wellness and Weight Loss Center. She lost 85 pounds and her health changed for the better.

Dotson said, “I struggled with my weight my entire life.  I was a yo-yo dieter, watching my weight go up and down from a size three to four, to a size 18. I had to get off the weight rollercoaster.”

“I remember meeting Ashleigh the first time.  She was so friendly, full of life and smiling. I could not wait to see what would happen to her after a life- changing sleeve,” said PMC Bariatric Surgeon Amy Johnson, M.D.  “She is a new improved and healthier version of herself.  Amazing!”

“Before surgery, I thought about weight loss surgery but decided to give weight loss on my own, one final try,” she said. “I gave myself a year to see if I could lose the weight. During that time I lost and found the same 35 pounds.”

Dotson says she had no reservations when she decided to have surgery.  As a hairdresser, she had lots of people sit in her chair. Those customers voiced their opinions, regarding her decision, and they were not always supportive.

She said, “Regardless of their motives, I think most of those negative opinions were simply uneducated comments.”

In the beginning she had countless questions.

“I actually got on YouTube and researched vertical sleeve gastrectomy and watched video blogs of other patients and their journeys,” she said. “I got to analyze the pros and cons they shared and I realized there are many common denominators.”

She says a lot of people had very similar stories and that helped her make her decision.

“It helps you keep everything in check and allows you to see their wins and their losses,” she said. “That helped ease my mind.” 

Dotson says she would have surgery again with no reservations because her life is different now.

“This morning I had zero trouble shaving my legs and putting on lotion,” said Dotson. “There are things I can do now that I could not do before. Simple things like putting shoes on, buckling a sandal and crossing my legs are now easy tasks.”

She says she had been smaller before and wanted to live that life again.

As for Dr. Johnson and her staff, Dotson says she was extremely pleased.

“I love all the people on staff.  I was already well acquainted with Sherry Blair, the dietician.  I had done her hair for a very long time and knew her well,” said Dotson. “When I walked in the door she said, ‘you are the perfect candidate.’  I had been picking her brain for a decade about nutrition so she just signed off on me.”

Dotson said Dr. Johnson was very straight forward and no nonsense and she felt comfortable in her hands.
