Self-Reliant Sisters

I have subscribed to and been following a blog called Self-Reliant Sisters.  http://selfreliantsisters.blogspot.com/

I have found them to have some great articles and I would like to re-post a recent article from their site:

Are You Prepared?

These are all articles from the Ensign's "Random Sampler" section. You may need to scroll down a bit to see the article mentioned.

"At one time or another, nearly every family will face accidents, illness, unemployment, or other emergencies that will require them to depend on the resources they have stored."
