Fifteen years ago Elder L Tom Perry gave this counsel,
"As long as I can remember, we have been taught to prepare for the future and to obtain a year’s supply of necessities. I would guess that the years of plenty have almost universally caused us to set aside this counsel. I believe the time to disregard this counsel is over. With events in the world today, it must be considered with all seriousness."
What does your food storage look like? Regardless of the condition of our food storage, we can start today to make it better. We all have different ways of storing food. We have the people who buy large amounts food they really don't know how to use, and figure it will come in handy one day and it goes in the basement. We have others that have a few cans of soup that hope will last for a few days if needed. Others live the food storage principles only in their hearts...knowing they intend to live this principle tomorrow. Or perhaps you have found the balance of buying what your family will eat and you know how to cook. Which type are you?
