Food For Thought: Steps to Self-Reliance

The following is a list from Elder Robert D. Hales on ways to be self-reliant:

  • Be ready for rainy-day emergencies
  • Avoid excessive debt; be content with what we have
  • Use the resources of the earth wisely; don’t be wasteful
  • Prepare for the future by making spending and savings plans
  • Keep a family or personal budget
  • Teach children wise spending habits and help them save for the future
  • Obtain an education or vocational training
  • Find gainful employment

“As we become self-reliant, we will be prepared to face challenges with confidence and peace of mind.”
