Trevor Loflin, 17, scored a perfect 1600 on the SAT while living with his homeless family in cars and tents last May. During the ensuing media frenzy, he credited his newfound faith: "After reading the Bible, our family realized that some of our circumstances were caused by a wrong worldview," he said. His mother began attending church and homeschooling-even when home was a car. Trevor plans to study physics at Bob Jones University. Some 100 fathers twirled their daughters to orchestra music at the third annual Colorado Springs Father-Daughter Purity Ball this spring. Before the dance, fathers signed a "purity covenant" promising to be models of integrity and to protect their daughters' moral character. Randy and Lisa Wilson, parents of six, founded the ball to strengthen father-daughter bonds and help women remain sexually abstinent until marriage. After her husband left her in 1964, Bea Gaddy and her five children survived by scouring trashcans. Today, she has a master's degree in counseling and directs the Baltimore-based Bea Gaddy Family Center. She feeds and shelters thousands through 16 programs, including a women's shelter, emergency food bank, and drug rehabilitation center. "This shows that God knows our prayers before we say them," she said.
