We become self-reliant,” explains Julie Beck, president of the Church’s organization for women, “through obtaining sufficient knowledge, education, and literacy; by managing money and resources wisely, being spiritually strong, preparing for emergencies and eventualities; and by having physical health and social and emotional well-being.”

Church leader Elder Robert D. Hales outlines ways we can become self-reliant:

  • Be ready for rainy-day emergencies
  • Avoid excessive debt; be content with what we have
  • Use the resources of the earth wisely; don´t be wasteful
  • Prepare for the future by making spending and savings plans
  • Keep a family or personal budget
  • Teach children wise spending habits and help them save for the future
  • Obtain an education or vocational training
  • Find gainful employment

As we become self-reliant, we will be prepared to face challenges with confidence and peace of mind.
