President Gordon B. Hinckley has taught: “Set your houses in order. If you have paid your debts, if you have a reserve, even though it be small, then should storms howl about your head, you will have shelter for your wives and children and peace in your hearts” ("To the Boys and to the Men," Ensign, Nov. 1998, 54).
Visit your bank. Arrange to have a set amount of money ( even if it is only a few dollars) automatically transferred to a savings account each time you are paid. The work is done for you and you won't even miss the money!
Be Prepared for daily ideas on how you can be more prepared, more organized, more financially independent, more spiritually in tune, more emotionally secure... well, you get the idea.
We have dedicated this blog to easy, managable, daily changes you can make that will prepare your families for their future.
Now is the time, This is the place, and You are the one to make a difference.

Kimball, "Family Preparedness," Ensign, May 1976, 125).
