My Family Culture

If a major catastrophe has almost completely devastated the infrastructure of my country and the government has decided that the surviving citizens will be best served if they are evacuated to other countries willing to take refugees. I and my immediate family are among the survivors of this catastrophic event. However, I don’t know where I am being sent or the details. I am told that the host country is completely different from my own, and I may have to stay permanently. I can take one change of clothing and 3 small items. What do I hold dear that I would chose to take that represents my family culture.

I am a christian and a Mormon and I have a wonderful relationship with God who would go with me on my journey. I would communicate to him through prayer, guidance, and support. With his love I could make it through anything.


I would be grateful to take my husband with me sense he is my immediate family and he is my rock and my best friend.

The personal item I would want to take with me is my scriptures so I could read and give support to the people around me.

 A picture of my children and grandchildren would be nice however; they are always in my mind so I would remember them with or without the picture.  There really is no third item I would need because God would give me what I need. My wonderful husband would be there to comfort me and give me a good listening ear. I am blessed beyond measure and I know I would made it through any calamity I go through.

Comfort and Hope

“Never assume that you can make it alone. You need the help of the Lord. Never hesitate to get on your knees in some private place and speak with Him.”

Gordon B. Hinckley, “Stay on the High Road,” Ensign, May 2004, 114
