Our Preparedness skills for the week were two-fold.
1. How to use a fire extinguisher (which also turned into a reminder about Stop, Drop, and Roll as well as a few other fire extinguishing guidelines).
2. How to ignite a lighter.
Everyone had to negotiate the lighter well enough and long enough to light a candle.
There was some pretty serious discussion about the right times and the wrong times to use fire.
Our Family Home Evening lesson was about Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego when they were thrown into the fire for refusing to worship anyone (or thing) other than God.
That fire was so hot that the guys who tossed the three into the fire died!
But the three were unscathed, walking around in the fire with Jehovah.
In fact, they didn't even smell of fire.
That is some serious faith.
