Motivational Monday

“Without self-reliance one cannot exercise these innate
desires to serve. How can we give if there is nothing there?
Food for the hungry cannot come from empty shelves.
Money to assist the needy cannot come from
an empty purse. Support and understanding
cannot come from the emotionally starved.
Teaching cannot come from the unlearned.
And most important of all, spiritual guidance
cannot come from the spiritually weak.”

~President Marion G. Romney (1897–1988)

I LOVE this quote! I made my own buttermilk, at least I think it worked, last week. We're also transitioning to less cereal and more oatmeal. I haven't improved my food storage yet (hard to find the motivation with only one year left here!), but you are motivating some changes in our house :)

Absolutely LOVE this idea! It is my main motivation for preparing.
