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 may care for ourselves and our neighbors and support bishops as they care for others. We encourage Church members worldwide 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 yoursavings. 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. We realize that some of you may not have financial resources or space for such storage. Some of you may be prohibited by law from storing large amounts of food. We encourage you to store as much as circumstances allow.
May the Lord bless you in your home storage efforts.

This message comes from the Family Home Storage pamphlet put out by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. As members of the church, we are strongly encouraged to store at least a one year supply of food, stay out of debt, save for a rainy day, and have two weeks of water stored. With this page, I will be making a list of links to emergency preparedness and home storage resources. I hope you get inspired to start your emergency supply so that in a time of need you will be as prepared as you possibly can.
A wonderful supply of all types of information can be found here by clicking on the links in the sidebar once you go to that page.
The following list will provide ideas, tutorials, recipes, etc to help you as you begin to prepare.
