“The revelation to store food may be as essential to our temporal salvation today as boarding the ark was to the people in the days of Noah.” (Ezra Taft Benson, October 1973)
Would you have boarded the ark? Do you have food storage?
Could you shelter in place? Do you even know what is involved with that?
It could be just little inconveniences like on one Saturday evening when we lived out East the water quit running. It ended up being a frozen water main type thing but that whole section of town was affected. I got out a few bottles of water and we washed our hair and such for church the next day. Well at church you could tell who this affected by their hair as they could not shower before church… now mind you this was a little thing.
But sometimes it is big things like the floods of '93. Des Moines and then Ankeny were out of water, it was not a quick fix and was a big part of life's interruptions. Look at Flint Michigan - that is a huge thing, are you ready for such things?
We don’t have storage for the end of times though if you lose your job you may feel like it’s the end.
Life has its ups and its downs. If you have an incident and you had not followed the council, can you see that it is wise to follow the council that you would be better off? Then why do you put it off??

There are many ways to store your storage. You can get ideas from these pics and find a way that works for you, but above all, just start getting it in… we are not in a beauty contest. I would tell you with the money we could all have great looking storage but the reality is we all don’t have the money for that so just get the storage. Mine is not pretty but when times get tough I have told my storage “you will have to get us through.” Pretty can wait.
Are you building your arks or are you feeling you will take your chances on a tree branch?
If you don’t look at anything else in the blog watch these clips she is wonderful…
Look at your shelves, look at the faces of your family then roll up your sleeves and get busy!!! How much does it take to eat out for your family? $25.00? If you do that once a week that could have been a hundred dollars towards your storage, how does that one meal taste now hmm?
I am proud of what you are doing. Keep it up, build your ark because only you can. I found lots above to read and learn but again, store what you eat. I would rather have a case of green beans which we eat as opposed to a case of lima beans which we don’t eat, see what I am getting at?

I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy your Monday lessons. I look forward to them all week. Awhile back I mentioned that I wanted to learn to sew. Well. Guess what God has provided for me? Sewing lessons. My husband is trading some work with a seamstress in return for sewing lessons for me. Our first project will be pillow cases. My fabric came from a lovely cotton $2 dress from the thrift shop. The skirt part has lots of fabric. Thought you would be interested in hearing this.ReplyDelete
That's great news! Sewing lessons are the perfect place to get started on building your skills :)Delete
