I am rededicating myself to my FOOD STORAGE! I have not been very good about cooking with the storage I have and it's time I begin again. Carol sent me a site to a great food storage site that I really took time to read today and another one I found from that site. It has great recipes and ideas of ways to restock your food storage, or "how to" start from scratch. I have a mother-in-law who can make ANYTHING from wheat and I've decided that I need to take advantage of these resources and jump on the wagon to make myself and my family more prepared.
"If ye are prepared ye shall not fear" (D&C 38:30)
And it's time I listen to our leaders and take action in making my family MORE PREPARED!
This next year I will be better at gathering those things I get from my garden, buying from farmers markets in bulk and canning.

I'm the mother to three very energetic little boys and a wife to a man who rocks my world!
I decided a long time ago that staying home, with complete 24/7 focus on my family, was the career path for me.
I probably laugh more than I should, yell more than I should, and do not stay put anywhere as long as I should...
We try to make God the center of our home, a guest at at every meal, and a silent listener to every conversation...
We live on Main Street in Crazy Town, USA!!!
President David O. McKay declared: "Motherhood is the greatest potential influence either for good or ill in human life. The mother's image is the first that stamps itself on the unwritten page of the young child's mind. It is her caress that first awakens a sense of security, her kiss, the first realization of affection; her sympathy and tenderness, the first assurance that there is love in the world." (Gospel Ideals, p. 452.) President McKay continues: "Motherhood consists of three principal attributes or qualities: namely, (1) the power to bear, (2) the ability to rear, (3) the gift to love. . . This ability and willingness properly to rear children, the gift to love, and eagerness, yes, longing to express it in soul development, make motherhood the noblest office or calling in the world. She who can paint a masterpiece or write a book that will influence millions deserves the admiration and the plaudits of mankind; but she who rears successfully a family of healthy, beautiful sons and daughters, whose influence will be felt through generations to come, . . . deserves the highest honor that man can give, and the choicest blessings of God." (Gospel Ideals, pp. 453-54.)
