Top 10 Reasons Why I Don't Have My Food Storage

Slide 2:

#10 My Ward Members Have Their Year Supply, They Will Feed Me. No, they don’t. They don’t have any food. Did you know that 85% of the members of the church don’t have any food storage at all? If your idea is to eat someone else’s food...that is a really bad plan.

Slide 3:

#9 I’ve Paid Tithing for 20 Years...The Church Will Give Me Food. Many members believe that when times get hard, the church is going to come through like Joseph in Egypt. Absolutely not true. All the church storehouses and welfare farms across the country would only feed 4% of the members of the church. The church has been asking YOU to store food for 75 years. They’re NOT storing food for you, thus, another bad plan.

Slide 4:

#8 If Anything DOES Happen, the Government Will Take Care of Me! (laughter) Do you not remember what happened after Katrina? To make matters worse everyone knew this storm was coming and yet it still took over 5 days to get just basic necessities to the people. Did you know the government has been telling us that we need to have food storage? They’re actually CALLING it food storage! We now have the government telling us to store food, water, medicines... whatever we will need to be able to stay in our homes for several months. So far, all the reasons we don’t have our food storage involve eating someone else’s food. Please, don’t put your family’s temporal salvation in other people’s hands. No one is storing food for you. Not your neighbors, not the government...not even the church.

Slide 5:

#7 I Am A Church Going, Temple Attending, Elder’s Quorum President...the Lord Will Send Manna. D&C 130:20-21 “There is a law, irrevocably decreed in heaven before the foundations of the world, upon which all blessings are predicated – And when we obtain any blessing from God, it is by obedience to that law upon which it is predicated.” To obtain the blessing of food storage you must have food storage.

Slide 6:

#6 The Boat and The Four-Wheelers Are Taking Up All My Storage Space. I have had people who live in 4,000 square foot houses tell me that they don’t have any room for food storage. Really? Did you know you could fit a year supply of food under a twin bed? I had someone else tell me that they could only store about a month’s worth because if they stored any more they couldn’t fit their cars in the garage. twin bed

Slide 7:

#5 The Prophets Have Been Saying That for 100 Years and We Haven’t Needed It Yet. “They’re always making way too much of everything! We may not need this for 100 more years!” Every prophecy that has ever been given WILL happen, we never know when, and we have been warned in the parable of the 10 Virgins , that half won’t be prepared. Will you be one of the foolish or the wise?

Slide 8:

#4 I Can’t Afford Scrap Booking, the Gym, my Cell Phone, AND Food Storage. Basic food storage can cost as little as a dollar a day. We live in the richest society in the history of the world, and while there are cases where money may be a problem, most of the time it is a matter of priorities. We have chosen bigger homes, nicer cars, more TVs, computers, vacations...everything is more important than our food storage. If I asked, “Do you have a cell phone?” most of you would say yes. You pay at least $30 a month to have a cell phone...that’s about a dollar a day...the cost of one year’s food supply for your child. Is your cell phone really more important than your child’s temporal salvation? You have to make food storage a priority.

Slide 9:

#3 Oh, I Have A Year’s Supply, My Pantry’s Full of Food. It would have to be a really BIG pantry to contain a year supply for a whole family. Realistically, the average pantry contains a 2-6 week supply of food. It’s a good start for your 90-Day, but not near enough for a year.

Slide 10:

#2 I Am Waiting for Freeze-Dried Pizza (I would never eat that stuff. Why store it?) Food storage has always had a stigma attached to it. If it’s not wheat, beans, and powdered milk, it’s not food storage. With the system I use, food storage can be sweet and sour chicken, tamale pie, chili and cornbread, beef stew, shepherd’s pie, minestrone...even chocolate chip cookies! Your imagination (and your pocketbook) are the only limitations you have.

Slide 11:

#1 And the #1 Reason Why I Don’t Have My Year’s Supply of Food ? A Year? I Thought it Was 72 Hours!! You KNOW you should have your food storage. You WANT to have it, but it can be so overwhelming! How much do I buy? Where do I store it? How do I cook it? It seems like an impossible task...but it’s not. It doesn’t matter if you use a system or just start buying food. The important thing is to do something. Good luck in our efforts!
