52 Weeks, Week 30

5 2 Weeks to Family Preparedness for Two

Week 30

How on the face of the earth could a man enjoy his religion when he had been told by the Lord how to prepare for a day

of famine, when instead of doing so he had fooled away that which would have sustained him and his family.

George Albert Smith


Food Storage and Preparedness Challenge Of The Week:


Food Storage Purchase 30 Lbs. Wheat or flour

Extra Item Purchase 8 Lbs Salt

Family Gear Box Store some of the spices and seasonings that make meals tasty. Add some sugar or honey.

Family Preparation Review your existing savings plan or start one. No matter what you have already or what your income,

you can save something for the future. Pay tithing first and then pay yourself- even if it’s only a little.

Spiritual Preparedness Evaluate your family scripture study and family prayer. Find your weak points and set a goal to be

more diligent in these areas
