The calendar has broken down a month to month preparation to build a rotating food storage, a goal to skill build, a 72 hour kit goal in case of emergency, and a spiritual goal. The front of the calendar says: "Be Prepared! It wasn't raining when Noah built the ark!" I never know what will come for our family. An important part is that what you choose to prepare with are things that you know how to use and like.
"Let every household see to it that he has on hand enough food and clothing
and, where possible, fuel for a year ahead."
J. Reuben Clark, April 1937
