An Increase

September was the my month to encourage increasing food supply. There were only two opportunities for me to promote this, so the first Sunday I had the chance, I sent arount the quote found on the church website by the first presidency regarding family home storage and included 3 websites where information for saving money in this endeavor could be found:

"Our Heavenly Father created this beautiful earth, with all its abundance, for our benefit and use. His purpose is to provide for our needs as we walk in faith and obedience. He has lovingly commanded us to “prepare every needful thing” (see D&C 109:8) so that, should adversity come, we can care for ourselves and our neighbors and support bishops as they care for others.

"We encourage members world-wide to prepare for adversity in life by having a basic supply of food and water and some money in savings.

"We ask that you be wise as you store food and water and build your savings. Do not go to extremes; it is not prudent, for example, to go into debt to establish your food storage all at once. With careful planning, you can, over time, establish a home storage supply and a financial reserve."

—The First Presidency, All Is Safely Gathered In: Family Home Storage, Feb. 2007, 1     and

The following week my children helped me make these fun handouts:

Hope this inspires and helps you to encourage that food supply in your ward's happy homes!
