Too often we bask in our comfortable complacency and rationalize that the ravages of war, economic disaster, famine, and earthquake cannot happen here. Those who believe this are either not acquainted with the revelations of the Lord, or they do not believe them. Those who smugly think these calamities will not happen, that they somehow will be set aside because of the righteousness of the Saints, are deceived and will rue the day they harbored such a delusion. - Ezra Taft Benson

Spiritual and Temporal Preparedness

Welcome to our new blog "All About Preparedness".  Our mission is to bless and strengthen one another while teaching and learning together; "Wherefore, he that preacheth and he that receiveth, understand one another, and both are edified and rejoice together" D&C 50:22.
We live in days that have been prophecied for generations.  As time draws nearer for the return of the Savior "....the whole earth shall be in commotion, and men's hearts shall fail them...."  D&C 45:26
We need not fear if we are prepared.  But, if we are not prepared -- we may be feeling it.  Hopefully that fear will lead those who aren't 'ready' to take action and prayerfully seek guidance as to where to start and what to do.  We hope this site will be helpful in that regard.

Over the past many years some of us have been feeling the strong need to get our homes and lives in order.  Part of that preparation is temporal and part is spiritual.  In fact, a good spiritual foundation promotes temporal preparation as well.

This blog is a compilation of the best information we have found on preparedness.  We'd love your comments on what you've found to be most helpful as you've sought to prepare and . . . to find peace.
