The Implicit Commandmet

Through a series of very difficult experiences early on in my life, the Lord taught me a way of
looking at the gospel as a blueprint for healing. This is what I would like to explore with you.
Week by week we will look at different aspects of the gospel, and how they can heal us from
challenges, trials, traumas, and the difficulties that we all go through, as well as prepare us for
difficult times to come.

Lent and the Word of Wisdom

“A Word of Wisdom, for the benefit of the council of high priests,
assembled in Kirtland, and the church, and also the saints in Zion—To
be sent greeting; not by commandment or constraint, but by revelation
and the word of wisdom, showing forth the order and will of God in the
temporal salvation of all saints in the last days—Given for a principle with
promise, adapted to the capacity of the weak and the weakest of all
saints, who are or can be called saints.” – (D&C 89:1-3)

Creating a Family Emergency Plan for 2024

Welcome to 2024 friends! New Years is one of my favorite times of year. I love getting a new calendar, setting new goals and intentions for the year, and feeling like it’s a fresh start. I love to get notebooks, mark out big events and birthdays, and try to set new routines to build better habits for the year.

However, like we’ve learned in the last few years, we never know what is inside Pandora’s box, so this is also a great time to take an inventory of where we are in preparation for it. I like to use the first couple of weeks to reorganize the pantry, update 72 hour kits, and play a little ‘what if’ game.

Create an Emergency Plan for Your Family

The last step I would recommend is practicing your plan! We all grew up doing fire drills at school about once a month, so that if a real one happened, we would know what to do. There is a reason we did that, so we already had the automatic response. We want to create that in our homes too.

After creating your plan, make sure that each family member knows where to go, and what to do for each type of emergency. Can everyone get out? Can everyone fit in the space selected for tornado shelter? Where would you meet if you evacuated the house? Having practices and meetings sets routines for these situations so everyone knows what to do, and helps relieve some of the anxiety that comes with them.
