Motivational Monday: Self-Reliance and Family Well-Being

Click on photo for link to this article from the LDS Provident Living website.
“Our Heavenly Father created this beautiful earth, with all its abundance, for our benefit and use. His purpose is to provide for our needs as we walk in faith and obedience. He has lovingly commanded us to ‘prepare every needful thing’ so that, should adversity come, we may care for ourselves and our neighbors and support bishops as they care for others.

“We encourage members worldwide to prepare for adversity in life by having a basic supply of food and water and some money in savings.

“We ask that you be wise as you store food and water and build your savings. Do not go to extremes; it is not prudent, for example, to go into debt to establish your food storage all at once. With careful planning, you can, over time, establish a home storage supply and a financial reserve.”

 Doctrine and Covenants 109:8  Organize yourselves; prepare every needful thing, and establish a house, even a house of prayer, a house of fasting, a house of faith, a house of learning, a house of glory, a house of order, a house of God;
My heart and prayers go out to those who have lost loved ones, lost homes and have been effected by tornadoes this past week.

Nicely put Sondra! We are working hard again this spring to get more into food storage and a financial reserve. Thanks for sharing!
