Gary and I both have to change our passwords frequently at work. Many companies' computers are programmed to require new passwords every 30 or 60 or 90 days. But how to remember those passwords that change frequently? (And yes, I know we're supposed to change them at home that frequently too...)

One of my ideas for passwords is using various friends' phone numbers. (Does anybody besides me still memorize phone numbers in this age of speed-dial and cell phones?)

Another idea is using people's names with their birthday attached, or couples' names with their anniversary attached. (Maybe we don't remember people's celebration days anymore either, what with Facebook reminders of birthdays.)

Another idea is to use the name of someone for whom you want to pray. If you have to use your password 3-10 times a day, then each time you type in the person's name, you have a reminder to pray "Lord, have mercy" for this person.
