How To Teach Your Children To Be Prepared


food storage

The world is a scary place. I have been feeling deep inside the need to prepare my family for these Latter Days. We hear it in General Conference, we read it in the Scriptures. It is time folks. Time to be ready! So how do we go about teaching our children to be prepared, without scaring them?

I truly think that the best way to do this is by example. When they see us getting excited about food storage, and emergency preparedness, then they might want to join in. Make it a game, the preparation part, but also you need to have some serious FHE’s about the subject. We need to look for inspiration and pray for the words to say, to teach our children about the Latter Days. Not only do we need to teach them about the physical preparation such as food storage and getting out of debt, we need to seriously teach them about our spiritual preparation. The following links will take you to some great sites that have a lot of fun ideas about being prepared and also some spiritual lessons for us to share with our children. I will be checking them out in depth!!!! Happy Parenting! JL~
