Presidency Message
President Robert D. Hales of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles said, "As we live providently and increase our gifts and talents, we become more self-reliant. Self reliance is taking responsibility for our own spiritual and temporal welfare and for those whom Heavenly Father has entrusted to our care. Only when we are self-reliant can we truly emulate the Savior in serving and blessing others. It is important to understand that self-reliance is a means to an end. Our ultimate goal is to become like the Savior, and that goal is enhanced by our unselfish service to others. Our ability to serve is increased or diminished by the level of our self-reliance." We hope and pray that we all can do what we need to to be more self-reliant. That we can strive for that main goal, to become like our Savior. We love you all so much.

Emergency Preparedness
Elder L. Tom Perry of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles taught: “Acquire and store a reserve of food and supplies that will sustain life…As long as I can remember, we have been taught to prepare for the future and to obtain a year’s supply of necessities. I would guess that the years of plenty have almost universally caused us to set aside this counsel. I believe the time to disregard this counsel is over. With events in the world today, it must be considered with all seriousness” (“If Ye Are Prepared Ye Shall Not Fear,” Ensign, Nov. 1995, 36).

Happy Birthday!
