  • When my daughter Alison was 3, I attempted to teach her to pray. Actually, I wanted to teach her about "giving money to Jesus."

    She had put 50 cents of her own in the offering plate at church one Sunday morning and then misplaced one of her shoes that afternoon.

    We didn't know about the shoe until the next morning as we scrambled to get to preschool on time and turned the house upside down looking for her shoe.

    As a last resort, I suggested we pray.
