“All of us are responsible to provide for ourselves and our families in both temporal and spiritual ways. To provide providently, we must practice the principles of provident living: joyfully living within our means, being content with what we have, avoiding excessive debt, and diligently saving and preparing for rainy-day emergencies.”

—Elder Robert D. Hales

Catching the Vision of Self-Reliance

"Self-reliance—“the ability, commitment, and effort to provide the necessities of life for self and family is an essential element of our temporal and spiritual well-being." Thomas S. Monson
