Loved the Relief Society broadcast

 I loved the General Relief Society broadcast tonight.  Each of the 3 woman in the General Relief Society Presidency and President Henry B. Eyring gave such inspiring talks, which interestingly, all seemed to include messages about helping one another through times of trouble, and how the Lord comforts us and blesses us through times of trouble, either through the Holy Spirit or through other people.

I have a testimony that the Lord guides our general authorities and auxiliary leaders as they prepare their talks.  I know He inspires them with what to say.  It is my opinion that they all seem to want to prepare us for troubled times ahead.  Our only safety is to follow the prophet and keep God's commandments.  I know that God will help us as we keep our covenants and as we show Christlike service to each other.

I want to plead with everyone to get their food storage, get out of debt, get your homes and finances in order.

When I see the magazines in the grocery store, I am horrified by all the time and money spent on idolizing immoral people. The people in this nation have their priorities totally screwed up.  Lets spend our time serving others, studying scriptures, being good wives and mothers and friends, and preparing our families.  This country has major problems, and unfortunately, I don't think electing Mitt Romney will necessarily solve them.  

And that brings to mind my other huge fear:  that Romney will be elected, and THEN the economy will collapse (or another terrorist attack will happen, or WWIII will start, etc) and the disgruntled Americans will blame all the Mormons for the catastrophe and the persecutions on our church will start again.  So I am not that excited to have him elected.  (Don't get me wrong, I am voting for Romney.  I definitely believe if Obama is re-elected all that stuff will happen even faster.)

(Here is an example of the gimme mentality which is killing our nation: "Obama gave me a phone".  I am really ashamed of our nation training people to think this way.

Here are several articles pointing to troubled times ahead:

(And I'm not even including any articles about the heightening tensions between China and Japan, and Israel and Iran.  The Israel thing is bothering me the most, Netanyahu has hinted pretty strongly that there is going to be an attack on Iran, but when???  The price of gasoline will go SKY HIGH when that happens.)

 Spain's economy may be about to collapse, and if it did, it will trigger banking catastrophes around the world.

The possible results of QE3:

 The following 2 stories are about the expanded FDIC insurance ending Dec. 31.

The above story came from Forbes.  The story below is easier for me to understand, on the same subject.

As Phyllis B. used to say at the end of her Gospel Doctrine lessons, "Therefore, what?"
What do we do?

In my opinion it is time to fast and pray about how to prepare your families, because these bad things are all on the brink, and one of them will set off the next one.

Why the Connecticut Social Security Number?

 In case you didn't know, President Obama has always had a Connecticut social security number, even though he has never lived there.  This article gives all the excuses the left has used, for why and how he got that SSN.

View from my front porch

I have always loved white fences.  This view is absolutely beautiful!

Our New Home

Here is our dream home, which has acreage and a barn for animals.  There is plenty of room for a big garden.  It has a well, and storage space for our food storage.

A series of miracles happened for us to get this property, and we are thankful beyond our wildest dreams.

We are staying in our same ward, but will live all the way on the other side of the ward.

Now you know why I haven't been blogging much lately, I have been busy moving.  (Actually, we aren't living there yet, we are waiting to do a couple of remodeling projects inside.  We might be moving in as late as Oct. 8.)

I look around and don't like what I see

 I've been busy, so haven't been blogging much at all in the past few weeks.

Then, everytime I read an article that I wanted to share with all of you, I talked myself out of it.  I said to myself, 

"They are probably sick of me giving bad news."

"Who cares anyway?"

"The world is going to hell in a handbasket, what will one little blog do to change anything?"

But I decided to go ahead and share these anyway.  Things are looking very dark indeed.

Many things are lining up, in a bad way.  I am not liking the looks of the international scene or the money system in America. 

 This article includes links to several other articles that make me think we are right on the edge of war with Iran.

(Here is an article entitled "19 Signs that Israel and Iran are on the Verge of War" which was published two weeks ago, on Sept. 2.)

Here's one about the currency:

Another one about QE3:

 You might ask, "So what?  What are you going to do about it?"

Here is my answer.  I am attempting to get our money out of the banks and retirement accounts and do something different with it.  I want real assets, not paper money.

Here are my goals, which I am trying to do as fast as possible.

Buy land.

Repair and replace everything in our home that needs fixing (roof, plumbing, etc.).  We may not have the chance later when things get worse.

Get a well.  Also store water in large quantities.

Get alternatives to electric power.

Get good security.

Get more food storage.

Store fuel.

Collect more of everything that may not be available after our currency hyperinflates or fails.

Collect tools and equipment.

Maybe learn to take care of animals, such as chickens.

Plant fruit trees and grape vines and a bigger garden.

Develop better ways to make an income at home.  Get multiple sources of income in case one method dries up.

Be prepared for the onslaught of natural disasters, war, and other calamities which modern prophets and scriptures have warned will come during the last days.  

I hope I am wrong.

If I am wrong, all these wonderful purchases will still be great things to have around.  And I will feel much more secure and prepared for disasters.  So it will still be a win-win situation.

I'm not dead

This is the longest I have ever gone without posting on this blog.   My excuse is that we have been busy!  I will tell you more about that later.

Here is a great article:
