Thursday Thoughts–Preparedness

Hey Ladies, Pam gave a wonderful lesson this Sunday on preparedness.  Below is the handout she gave us with helpful information.


Prophetic council about food storage:

“Many more people could ride out the storm-tossed waves in their economic lives if they had their . . .supply of food. . .and were debt-free. Today we find that many have followed this counsel in reverse: they have at least a year’s supply of debt and are food-free.”  Pres. Thomas S. Monson May 12, 2001

“Everyone who owns a home recognizes the need for fire insurance. We hope and pray that there will never be a fire.  Nevertheless, we pay for insurance to cover such a catastrophe, should it occur.  We ought to do the same with reference to family welfare.”  Pres. Gordon B. Hinckley  Nov. 2002

“In the day of plenty, prepare for the day of scarcity.”  First Presidency Message April 1942

“Learn to sustain yourselves; lay up grain and flour, and save it against a day of scarcity.”  Pres.  Brigham Young


Here are a few URL addresses to find informative tips on how to prepare you and your family.

This is a site put together by some LDS women on food storage ideas.

This is Sis. Wendy DeWitt’s blog where she has all of her YouTube videos  of her presentation on food preparation.
