Provident Living classes will start Sept. 10 at 9:30 a.m.This will be on a Tuesday at the Shooks. It will be a show and tell of sorts on how our progress is coming and how the binders are coming, mostly sharing tips and ideas we will also be planning future classes that are wanted. So if you have a class you want Sis. Shook to offer email her at.... firstname.lastname@example.org. Also if you want to share what you have been doing on your storage but cannot come please email, it is not bragging it is inspiring and helps us to be encouraged!
Vaughn J. Featherstone, “Food Storage,” Ensign, May 1976, 116
“Do I share with my neighbors who have not followed the counsel? And what about the nonmembers who do not have a year’s supply? Do we have to share with them?” No, we don’t have to share—we get to share! Let us not be concerned about silly thoughts of whether we would share or not. Of course we would share! What would Jesus do? I could not possibly eat food and see my neighbors starving.And if you starve to death after sharing, “greater love hath no man than this …” (John 15:13.) . . . Now what about those who would plunder and break in and take that which we have stored for our families’ needs? Don’t give this one more idle thought.
http://www.honeybeepantry.com/ - this is my favorite blog on food storage. There is so much that you can learn on this site, divide it like your own personal classes on the left side. She is a stake food storage specialist in Florida and if you do not do anything else, read all she has on making bread. She holds your hand through all of it. Very good! I have used her ideas with success.
http://positivelyprepared.blogspot.com/search/label/dehydrating - now is the time we have extra from the garden! Dehydrating is an excellent way to save that produce to use later.....you can vacuum seal it when done and using it will also be rewarding.
http://ldsindex.org/provident-living - a few articles here to read.
http://providentlivingisfun.blogspot.com/2010/04/food-storage-recipes-for-2-week-supply.html - this site has some recipes to get you started on your two weeks then go from there. The main point is to start.
https://sites.google.com/site/sharingprovidentliving/milwaukee-south-stake-provident-living-newsletter-loaves-fishes-volume-1-issue-10 - in this site above I thought you would get ideas from another stake.
http://www.dinnerisinthejar.com/ - this is an interesting idea to share with you.
http://jamiecooksitup.net/2012/08/40-food-storage-recipes-and-food-storagepantry-staple-lists/ - just something with more recipes. I encourage you to try out some recipes; in a crisis is not a time to test recipes and hope the kids will like it, if they do like it put it in your binder.
Keep working on your storage. I am proud of all of you!
