"Now, brethren, I want to make it clear that I am not prophesying, that I am not predicting years of famine in the future. But I am suggesting that the time has come to get our houses in order....That's all I have to say about it, but I wish to say it with all the emphasis of which I am capable"(Ensign, November 1998, p. 53).
The Lord doesn't want us to panic. There is no need to if we are making preparedness a lifestyle choice, rather than a one time event. :0)
