Our emphasis on this subject is not grounds for crisis thinking or panic. Quite the contrary, personal and family preparedness should be a way of provident living, an orderly approach to using the resources, gifts, and talents the Lord shares with us. So the first step is to teach our people to be self-reliant and independent through proper preparation for daily life. Victor Brown
When we have knowledge and wisdom, we are better able to discern truth from error and make good choices. Education is also a key to encouraging personal growth, preparing for suitable employment, building strong families, serving in our churches and making meaningful contributions to our society in which we live. One way we can become self-reliant in our education is to improve your communications with others. This week work on your communication skills. Even if it is just a simple “hello” to someone you normally would not speak to, or a visit to that neighbor you have been missing, take the opportunity to communicate to someone. It will help them as well as you.
Safe Cleanser Recipe
1 tbsp Borax powder (find it in the laundry aisle of your supermarket)
3 tbsp white vinegar
2 cups water
1 tbsp dish soap
10 drops of an essential oil such as peppermint or lemon (optional)
Pour it into a spray bottle you purchased at a hardware store, give it a big shake, and you are ready to clean. For windows, use white vinegar wiped down with newspapers, or cloths.
Bonus: Cleaning out harsh chemicals is not only better for your health, it’s good for the environment, because you drastically cut back on your plastic use by eliminating all those bottles of mildew cleaner, window washer, bathtub scrub, and more.
Economic Crash – What will you do?
Have you ever thought of what you would do if tomorrow, out of the blue, the dollar value dropped right out and the whole economy came crashing down around us. Banks closed. You lose your job because they don’t have money to pay you out. People start to panic. Rioting and looting. Disease starts to spread because many of the essential services are shut down. Okay, I think you get the picture.
It can take less than 3 hours for supermarkets to run completely out of food during a crisis … and up to 3 weeks to fill shelves again with any items, if you are lucky to be one of the first ones there to get some of it.
Follow through on this link to find out some of the things you should be doing to prepare for times just like this.
Happy and Healthy Prepping
