Our wedding and special events issue is full of great ideas and businesses to use for planning an event or wedding. On our cover this month are Bart Tucker and Elizabeth Parsley Tucker. This couple truly fell in love almost the moment they met. After a beautiful wedding at Family Life Bible Church in Conway, the couple enjoyed a wonderful celebration at their reception at Conway Country Club with family and friends. The couple has made Conway their home, and both enjoy careers in the real estate field. Check out their sweet love story and beautiful photos in this issue.
Elizabeth Parsley and Bart Tucker were one of those couples who “just knew” they were right for each other from the start. Their relationship culminated in their marriage on August 23, 2014, at Conway’s Family Life Bible Church. Elizabeth, who is from Conway, is the daughter of Bill and Michelle Parsley. Bart is the son of Dr. Michael and Beverly Tucker of White Hall.
How They Met
A trip to the dentist for most people is daunting. Many have questions and anxiety before they make the first appointment. But Dr. Michael Cooper and his team go above and beyond those expectations to create an environment of health and healing.
“We have really tried to make an effort not to look like a dental office,” says Renee Fronabarger, practice administrator at Michael Cooper Dentistry. “We want to make the patient feel comfortable and at home.”
The story of Ruth, as recorded in the Bible, is inspiring! I just completed a two year writing project on Ruth’s life. I love Ruth. We are close friends! Following the death of her husband, she moved from her home country of Moab to Bethlehem with her mother-in-law, Naomi. There are many details that I would like to share with you. Unfortunately, space does not allow. Perhaps the best summary of Ruth’s life is this: Ruth stepped out in faith, followed the plan of God, and, as a result, constantly found herself in situations that only God could redeem. I think this is why I love Ruth so much.

It’s the sound of corporate hives all over Conway flexing their spelling muscles in anticipation of Literacy Action of Central Arkansas’ First Annual Conway Corporate Spelling Bee! We invite you to be a part of this unique event, combining community philanthropy with corporate team building.
Here’s how it works:
The United Way of Central Arkansas held our 2nd Annual Run United 5K, in an effort to raise funds to help fight childhood obesity in our community.
Vilonia, Perryville, Mayflower, Greenbrier, and Conway School Districts each received $200 to purchase sports or fitness equipment that would be used to benefit a child, or children, in need in their pursuit to become more physically fit.
