Self-Reliance in All Things - Home Production & Storage

Home Production and Storage

"Each person or family should produce as much as possible through gardening, sewing, and making household items. (Since you're reading this, you're well on your way to learning how!) Each person and family should learn techniques of home canning, freezing and drying foods, and where legally permitted, should store and save a one-year supply of food, clothing, and, if possible, fuel."

Like everything in the gospel, we cannot achieve self reliance in a day. Not in a month, maybe not in a year. It is a process. Step by step. Line upon line and precept upon precept. Resolve today to take up the monthly challenges in the area of food storage and begin chipping away even if it's just an extra can or two of food every time you go to the grocery store or one can from the cannery each month. It all adds up.

"If ye are prepared, ye shall not fear." D&C 38:30
