Q.  Our daughter is a special needs child, who doctors say will live about half as long as the average adult. There’s also a good chance she will be under our care her entire life. We just finished Baby Step 3 of your plan, so we have all of our debt paid off except for the house, and we have an emergency fund of three to six months of expenses saved. We have health insurance, too. However, we were wondering how the situation with our little girl affects retirement planning and college funding?

How Important is Sleep to Well-Being?

Written by Nancy Thomas

Faith at Work

  • Judah and Samantha Helms

    RRJ:  You both had exposure to Jesus and His church as children, but you were still left wanting more.  What would you two say were the ingredients for your powerless (ho-hum) Christianity?
