This month's Ensign contains an article entitled, "Ye Shall Not Fear." The article relates the stories of three families who were affected by natural disasters. Each family made valuable preparations before disaster struck, which gave them peace during their difficult trials.
The article highlights the importance of temporal, mental and spiritual preparedness.
"...Sometimes it doesn't just rain--it pours. The scriptures teach us that in the latter days, 'there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places'. But when Church members heed the counsel of the prophets to be prepared temporally, mentally, and spiritually, they 'shall not fear'...
"The sure foundation of the gospel of Jesus Christ prepares Church members for the storms of life. Because physical storms come, those who are prepared for a disaster can find peace of mind in good times and can be self-reliant in difficult times. As these families learned, when we are prepared, we indeed shall not fear."For a link to the article, click HERE.
