(Gordon B. Hinckley, October 2001)
“As we have been continuously counseled for more than 60 years, let us have some food set aside that would sustain us for a time in case of need. But let us not panic nor go to extremes. Let us be prudent in every respect.”
This will be the last message before Christmas so a reminder to find time for yourself, to find time to rest, find time to rejuvenate.
These last few days usually are the most stressful.
Don’t forget the reason we celebrate!
Remember to look around you... is there someone who needs a kind word or to be remembered or lifted? This is the hardest time of year for so many people.
Mix up some cookie dough, roll in a log, wrap in plastic wrap or tinfoil, write the recipe and baking directions and wrap around and tie ribbons on both ends - a great gift last minute!
As we use lots of ingredients for our holiday baking we need to be reminded to restock what we use. This is a good list of what to store in our storage for seasonal baking http://foodstoragemadeeasy.net/2008/11/21/holiday-baking-food-storage/

Here is a food storage room... http://preparedldsfamily.blogspot.com/2013/08/pictures-of-my-food-storage-room.html
I think she has done a great job.
Just some storage pictures to get you excited to organize it this new year or to get started if you haven’t.
Each family will have their own needs, wants, likes in what they store or how they store.
I really enjoy when someone tells me about their storage or what skills they are working on.
I want you and your family to have a Merry Christmas and a great New Year!
