"Wherefore, ye must press forward with a steadfastness in Christ, have a perfect brightness of hope, and a love of God and of all men. Wherefore, if ye shall press forward, feasting upon the word of Christ, and endure to the end, behold, thus saith the Father: Ye shall have eternal life." (2 Nephi 31:20)
Wow! What a wonderful promise in this scripture. Now to tie this to Emergency Preparedness---if we press forward with a steadfastness in building up our Food Storage and Emergency supplies we will reap great benefits and peace of mind. Also, to be spiritual prepared, if we read the scriptures daily and feast upon them, we will have the spiritual strength and knowledge we need to help us through any trail we face. It may not get rid of the trial, but it will make it a little easy to handle.
This week add the following to your 72 Hour Emergency Personal Hygiene Kits(one item per kit for each family member):1) 2-3 Respirator masks per person (I got mine from EmergencyEssentials.com, 10 in a package for $12.99, shipping will be $6.00. You can also find them at Walmart and other stores.)
2) Roll of toilet paper (This may not fit in the large plastic bag with the other items, put a roll in each family members emergency backpack.)
Great Emergency Light Tip:
Yard/garden solar spot lights are a great source of emergency light at night. Put them around in your garden or planter and pots to catch the sun during the day. If you loose your lights you can bring them into the house at night to give you about 6 hours of light. It will not be a lot of light, but it will be better than being in the dark. Just remember before going to bed to put them back in the garden so they can recharge during the next day.

Food Storage Ideas:
How to use older stored wheat---
How many of us have wheat stored from the 1970's which is about 40+ years old and have not used any of it yet? I learned something from Sister Cummings as she is started to rotate and use their 40 year old wheat. When you make bread or bake with it you will need to add some white flour to the wheat flour to make the total amount used in the receipe. If you do not, the bread will come out like bricks. The white flour lightens up the bread. Another trick I learned from Sister Emily Brown in Torrance Ward is to add Lecithin liquid and the bread will be lighter too. Add 3 tablespoon for a whole wheat bread receipe that uses about 9 cups of wheat flour, 1 tablespoon per loaf the receipe makes. You may need to experiment with the amount. You can only get Lecithin from Whole Foods or other health food stores. Most of us will probably not make whole wheat bread with just wheat flour in the beginning, it will cause some very uncomfortable stomach problems if you are not use to it, best to add white flour at first, and then start decreasing the white flour until your family gets use to just the whole wheat flour.
