Tiffany you are on the right track. If you are getting fuel to the fuel rail and into the throttle body, then most likely it is the ignition coil inside the distributor cap.
While you're at it change the cap and rotor too. The coil is about $70-80 at the local part Zone for my Civic. Call around for a place that will test the coil for you before plunking down that cash and get one that gives a year, not 90 day warranty. Electricals usually don't allow for returns, so change wires one at a time or take a pic with your cell phone or draw a diagram for the 3 or 4 wires you will have to deal with. Takes 20 minutes- not hard at all.
Honda manual says to change the timing belt at 90k miles because most have interferential valves setup so that if your timing belt breaks it will bend a bunch of valves next time you crank it. So unless you are hearing a lot of banging in the valve train it is probably your coil. No one changes timing belts or chains just for fun, operating under the 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it rule. so there is good reason for the recommendation to avoid destruction of the valve train.
It is unlikely you had catastrophic failure of all plugs or loss of compression simultaneously, so start with the distributor, and check the ignition fuses in the fuseblock. Clearly marked and accessible and easy to do. I've changed the coil in my 94 Civic a couple of times.
You can remove the air intake, pump or flutter the accelerator lever and check to see if you can smell gas & probably hear it squirt if your hearing's keen. That tells you if your trouble is fuel or spark. If you aren't getting fuel, check my other postings- I've done detailed troubleshooting sequence on some of those.
