Family Home Storage....a New Message

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints recently published an article with this title in the recent March issue of the Ensign Magazine.

The main points are:

1. Gradually build a small supply of food that is part of
your normal, daily diet until it is sufficient for three months.

2. Store drinking water.

3. Establish a financial reserve by setting aside a little
money each week, and gradually increase it to a reasonable

4. Once families have achieved the first three objectives,
they are counseled to expand their efforts, as circumstances
allow, into a supply of long-term basic foods such
as grains, legumes, and other staples.

Of the new guidelines, Presiding Bishop H. David Burton says, “Our objective was to establish a simple, inexpensive, and achievable program that would help people become self-reliant. We are confident that by introducing these few, simple steps we can, over time, have more success.”

To read the information, please see the link below:

President Gordon B. Hinckley reminded us in October 2005 general conference of our need to be prepared: “We can so live that we can call upon the Lord for His protection and guidance. This is a first priority. We cannot expect His help if we are unwilling to keep His commandments. … I have faith … that the Lord will bless us, and watch over us, and assist us if we walk in obedience to His light, His gospel, and His commandments."
