Classes for Domestic Tranquility

Dear Sisters,

I have decided that this is the best calling in the church. I have always wanted to know more about this stuff and now is my great opportunity! It also can be your great opportunity to learn some of these lost skills and learn to feed your family better at the same time while using your food storage.

Below, are a few classes that I will be teaching (for the next millennia by the looks of the list) to help prepare myself, and our ward family for the exciting events to come. Of course, I will need all of the help I can get. So, if you feel like you would like to share what you already know, or learn more about one of theses subjects, please e-mail me back and I will put you on that committee and when that class rolls around, you can help.

Sisters, please remember that none of this is meant to overwhelm any of us. But if we are prepared, we shall not fear. That is the idea here- DOMESTIC TRANQUILITY! Yippy, here we go on this great adventure!
