I would encourage you to do something every week to help with your personal preparedness. Learn something, buy something, teach something or do something. Doing a little each week will pay off .

Our Family Meetings - Change

I would suggest you form your own family organization for this. We don't talk alot about it in our ward or stake and it is something that needs to be discussed on a regular basis because there is so much to learn and do - one lady after seeing a presentation I did said, "This is really a science isn't it?" She said in a nutshell what I have felt. I will be forever grateful for that comment.

Our monthly phone meetings about preparedness are working to keep this in everyone's thoughts, but we have discovered because we are in 5 locations it is a bit of a struggle to talk about 4 topics each time. (Original Post about our Famly Meetings ) We are changing this to one topic in depth each meeting.

Each person is a chairman of an area. That person will make assignments within their area to the rest of us. We have also felt that we need to focus on skills for a while, we will cover the food in detail later. Everyone is currently gathering and so it isn't as much of a rush to learn more about that.
