While investigations continue into the tragic loss of three lives at a Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood and as we pray for the families of those who lost loved ones, I can't help but wonder about the innocent lives lost daily. Every life, whether one not allowed to breathe outside its mother's womb, a police officer or civilians . . . each one precious in His sight.

There's a guy at church named Scott who says I'm his girlfriend.
The reality is I'm just one of the many he refers to as his girlfriend.

Brad Mattes, host of the daily 1:00 commentary, "Life Issues®" and President of the Life Issues® Institute, recently noted, "In the 40 years that I've been working in the pro-life movement, these last few weeks have been the most dramatic and impactful. I pray that Americans won't just be shocked and then return to things as usual. If we're able to feed the passion created by these videos, I'm confident we can end this modern-day holocaust of abortion. Please God, let it be so!"

I'm a mom of three and with two of them driving, a recent Bloomberg report struck a chord with me.
The report notes that while teens don't always listen to parents, they watch them. "A lot of parents don't understand that they're the No. 1 influence when it comes to teaching their teens how to drive," Kyle Donash, a spokesman for Allstate.
While I could certainly work on my parenting skills, I'm thankful that I've had taken opportunities to show my children the importance of refraining from such risky behavior while driving.
