FHE: In Case of Emergency

Graphic from The Mormon Home
It's always good to have an emergency contact list to refer to when needed, but this list is even more important for anyone dealing with a spiritual emergency. Although it's so important to follow the counsel of the prophets and temporally prepare for whatever may come, it's even more important to prepare spiritually for times that will try us.

For Family Home Evening tonight, make a treat and check out a few of these scriptures to find out the answers to your spiritual emergencies.

“Most of us have thought about how to prepare for storms. We have seen and felt the suffering of women, men, and children, and of the aged and the weak, caught in hurricanes, tsunamis, wars, and droughts. One reaction is to ask, ‘How can I be prepared?’ And there is a rush to buy and put away whatever people think they might need for the day they might face such calamities. But there is another even more important preparation we must make for tests that are certain to come to each of us. That preparation must be started far in advance because it takes time. What we will need then can’t be bought. It can’t be borrowed. It doesn’t store well. And it has to have been used regularly and recently. What we will need in our day of testing is a spiritual preparation. It is to have developed faith in Jesus Christ so powerful that we can pass the test of life upon which everything for us in eternity depends. That test is part of the purpose God had for us in the Creation.” (Henry B. Eyring, General Conference, October 2005)
