& Family Overview for 2006
for Home & Family
We will be
reading 4 wonderful books this year. Two of the books are spread
out over the year: The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Families and
of the Prophets. The other 2 books will be read consecutively.
We hope these books will help us as mothers and also impact our family
life positively. In addition to the 4 books, you will also find articles
to read, 1 per month.
We feel it
would be good to focus on our emergency preparedness this year. The
goal we have set for the group is to work on adding a 3 month supply to
our current food storage &/or emergency supplies. So for example...
if you are starting the year with no storage, you would ideally have a
3 month supply by the end of the year. If you already have a 6 month
supply you would have 9 months and so on. You can also work to have
a complete 72 hour kit for each family member. We are each in different
circumstances but we can all do something to improve, even if just a little.
The Provident Living website by the church has a lot of resources and helps
for getting started: Food
Storage and Emergency Preparedness at Provident Living
A happy home
is an organized home. Organization can take on many different forms.
You will know when your home feels organized to you. Post to the
list your organization goals and report on your progress on a monthly basis.
When we work together to motivate and inspire, wonderful results happen.
You will find a list of possible resources above (under Optional Additional
Resources). Choose the method that will work for you. You may
have to try all of them before you find a method that works. Be patient.
Organizing a family is not an easy task.
You will want
to keep one or more notebooks for recording new knowledge, preparedness
plans, cleaning schedules, and so on.
