How To Make The Best Use Of This Kit This "Facts of Your Life" kit can help you accomplish two important tasks. First, it helps you decrease the stress of record keeping in your daily life by providin a one-stop resource for basic family information. Secondly, completing the elements will ease the paperwork stress on your family in the event of a disability or death. How successfully these tasks are accomplished depends largely on the completeness and clarity with which the booklet is filled in. Complete the information as if this is the only guide available to someone who will never be able to check with you directly on any of the information. 1. Scan the whole booklet. You may find it easiest to go through the first time and note the information that is readily available, then go back and fill in the missing pieces. 2. If a section does not apply to you, indicate that it does not apply and go on to the next section. Your family will know that you did not unintentionally leave something blank. 3. Take the time to find all the information and fill out the forms completely. You know where to find the answers, someone else who must use the information may not. 4. Modify the pages if you need to, e.g. if you are unmarried but have someone you would like to include, cross through "spouse" and replace it with a term that describes their relationship to you, such as "lifetime partner" or "special friend". 5. Print or type legibly. 6. Keep the forms up-to-date. Make a date with yourself and your family to change them the same time every year, e.g. when you file your taxes. 7. In filling in line-by-line elements keep these factors in mind: Name - full name, spelled correctly Address - city, state, zip code Phone - area code and phone number Location of records - signed, dated and, if applicable, witnessed copies 8. If you store any of this information on computer note the computer location, file location, type of software used, and name of the file. Make sure to keep a copy of back-up disks in a safe place. 9. Photocopy any of the forms for additional family information. 10. Keep this kit in a safe and easily accessible location. Make your family aware of that location. 6

Obsession of the Modern Church - by Gary deMar -
What you believe about the future could hurt you.
The end is here...again. At every calendar milestone, self-proclaimed modern-day "prophets" arise to stir up a furor rivaled only by the impending apocalypse they predict.
This doom-and-gloom prognostication is not only spread by a few fanatics, but millions of Christians, including some of the most recognized names in mainstream Christianity who are caught up in the latest "last days" frenzy.
Seduced by the popular craze, they are driven not to action, but to radical inactivity, ineffectiveness, and lethargy while waiting for the easy-out "end."
In this authoritative book, Gary DeMar clears the haze of "end-times" fever, shedding light on the most difficult and studied prophetic passages in the Bible, including Daniel 7:13-14; 9:24-27; Matt. 16:27-28; 24-25; Thess. 2; 2 Peter 3:3-13, and clearly explaining a host of other controversial topics, including:
The Meaning of Near, Shortly, Quickly, and "This Generation"
The Prophetic Discourse of Matthew 24
The Rebuilt Temple
The Abomination of Desolation
The Man of Lawlessness
The Meaning of 666
The Return of Jesus
The Cursed Fig Tree
The Passing Away of Heaven and Earth
The Antichrist and Armageddon
The Identity of "Mystery Babylon"
And so much more....
In this book, DeMar tests your views and renews your zeal for the living truth. This is the most thoroughly documented and comprehensive study of Bible prophecy ever written! Last Days Madnesswill be your survival guide and spiritual compass to ensure you escape the paralysis of last days madness.
