Considering all of this over the past few weeks, helped me create a 12-Month Food Storage Preparedness Plan for 2013. I am also making some changes to PreparedLDSFamily. I want to make food storage and emergency preparedness doable for as many people as possible.
I’m not a creative cook, but my semi-homemade approach to cooking has helped me see that even I can have a food storage! We will not starve.
That’s why I like to share monthly and weekly food storage lists. Sure you can always follow a check list, but there is something about someone prompting and encouraging you along the way that helps you stay on track as you build up and replenish your food storage and emergency supplies.
Here are some changes for PreparedLDSFamily in 2013:
- No more weekly suggestions for 72-hour kits and auto kits. These emergency supplies should be done quickly, and I will share ideas on how to do that economically.
- The printable monthly food storage lists won’t look exactly like last years. And yes, you can share them with friends and without asking me. Thank you for telling me you like them!
- New monthly spiritual focus. We need to refill the oil in our lamps. So I will share family home evening ideas, talks, videos and my thoughts on a monthly spiritual topic.
- More pictures and videos. I promise!
- You can see what my blog focus will be each month below.
I am extremely grateful to a loving Heavenly Father who hears me, and helps me in my desire to help my brothers and sisters everywhere. Without His reassurance and teaching me that the gifts he has given me are to help others, I would not be able to do what I do.
