3 What counsel have Church leaders given about preparing ourselves and our families for times of adversity?

4 Home Storage Centers Our Heavenly Father created this beautiful earth, with all its abundance, for our benefit and use. His purpose is to provide for our needs as we walk in faith and obedience. He has lovingly commanded us to prepare every needful thing (see D&C 109:8) so that, should adversity come, we may care for ourselves and our neighbors and support bishops as they care for others. We encourage Church members worldwide to prepare for adversity in life by having a basic supply of food and water and some money in savings. The First Presidency, in All Is Safely Gathered In: Family Home Storage (2007), 1.

5 Home Storage Centers Many more people could ride out the storm-tossed waves in their economic lives if they had their year's supply of food... and were debt free. Many today have followed this counsel in reverse. They have at least a year's supply of debt and are food free. Closing Remarks, BYU Womens Conference, May 4, 2001, 5.
