When Fire Forces You From Home – Focus on the Family: “If you had only a few minutes to gather up a few select treasures of your life before fleeing a raging inferno, what would you take – and what would you leave behind?

Praying for Your Kiddos – Erin Davis offers some good counsel on ways that you can pray for your kids. I’m not so sure about the life verse, but definitely the others are very helpful.

—Jeremiah Burroughs
