Plant a vegetable garden.
Store food and water.
Build up savings.
Does this sound familiar? It should. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has been encouraging everyone to take these steps to self-reliance for years and years.
Quoting from the article;
“This lifestyle brings peace of mind.”
The Mormon church traces its principle of provident living to Jesus’ teachings on helping others and serving the poor.“The idea is trying to live selflessly and think about other’s needs and being self-reliant and taking care of oneself, family and neighbors,”
I would ask a question to those who persecute religion and decry religion's involvement in the community and in the world; what are you doing to live selflessly and think about other’s needs and to be self-reliant?
