Prayers for the Lillard Family – Updated

Way behind on posting and emails, but I wanted to put this up. It’s an email I received from a reader last week.

Hi Calah,

I have a prayer request that I’m trying to pass around the web. A family I know lost two of their four young daughters and (much less importantly) all of their material possessions in a terrible house fire last night. Their oldest, 8, is in the PICU at Children’s Hospital in Washington D.C. with extensive burns and smoke damage to her lungs. More information here:

If you could pray for physical healing and spiritual peace, and pass along to others, that would be so appreciated. If you post about this and your readers would like to know where they can help, donations are being taken here:

Thank you

I’m sure you’ll all join me in praying for this family. What a dreadful tragedy.



Here’s the latest from Becca, who originally emailed me:

Prayers are the main thing right now. If people are interested in helping financially, there are two funds that are taking online donations right now:, and There is also a Facebook page with details about all of the fundraisers and donations drives, here: Readers can also contact me for more information or help directing them to ways to help.

An update: Morgan (the 8 yr old daughter) is out of ICU and is healing well. 
Thanks so much!
