These monthly newsletters are for anyone who would like to learn more about how to be better prepared. Written for the Hurricane Utah Stake as a stake assignment, there are also many other wards and groups who use these. Everyone is welcome to make copies!

Included are newsletters from January 2011 to present. In the January 2015 post there is an index for the first 4 years of newsletters. There are also preparedness booklets that have been posted throughout the years.

May we help each other to be more prepared, and remember what President Thomas S Monson Said: “When the time for performance arrives, the time for preparation is past.”

(Note: Garden tips are for Southern Utah – you may need to adjust according to your area’s climate.)

August 2017 Back to Basics newsletter

The dog days of summer are upon us. This is that sultry part of summer when we hope for an ice cold lemonade or a sweet and juicy slice of watermelon under a large shade tree! The heat chases us back inside quickly after a morning of working in the garden, or a brisk morning walk. It is a great time of year to read a good book, “catch up” at family reunions, and get kids ready to go back to school. August is also a time of harvest, and a wonderful time to put up some luscious peaches, zucchini relish, or tomatoes. August is a great time to “Be Prepared”. Before the snow flies – we get the load of wood ready for the warm winter fires. For all to “be safely gathered in”, first comes planning, work and commitment.  In between the pages of that classic novel – let us fit in some planning and checkup for our family’s preparedness status. And then – “today while the sun shines” let us set aside that which we will need for the storm that may lie ahead, and the winter that most certainly will come.
