You are absolutely right--Food storage is "common sense." It was used by Joseph in ancient Egypt to save the Egyptians & the Israelites from famine.
Farmers know there are good years & bad years and prepare accordingly. Unfortunately, most people are used to the "horn of plenty" and don't realize that stores could be stripped bare in a few weeks.
The LDS Church would like everyone to store food for bad times which include unemployment and illness not just famine.
Food storage my friends is not a religious notion.Its called common sense. Sorry! It doesn't belong to Catholics or Mormons. I grew up on a farm, we neither Catholic or Mormon. We put food back, prepared for failed crops, bad times and winter. We rarely bought anything from the store. We canned just about everything.My Mom and Dad learned the importance of being prepared from their parents who lived through the Great Depression.I wish everyone would practice putting back food, prepare for lifes
@secretbandmember2 I went to a catholic high school run and taught by nuns. This is the first I've heard of Catholics having long term food storage.
so informed....;) It is true, in Missouri, it was illegal to be mormon and live in Missouri---it was also legal to kill mormons in that state till the late 70's. So yes, we have survived by being prepared :)
Mormons have been promoting food storage ever since they were run out of Illinois for running a theocracy and breaking the law. You need extra food when the law is after you...haha
Food storage and being prepared is good for everyone, not just LDS folks. This is an excellent video!
Shut up you loser. You don't know what you are talking about.
Way to go sister, you're a mormon popstar. Hope we get some royalties.
