“Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands.” —Psalm 8:6
“Families and individual members would do well to review their own level of self-reliance. Are we wise stewards of our money? Do we spend less than we earn? Do we avoid unnecessary debt? Do we teach our children to value and not waste what they have? Do we teach them to work? If, in honesty, we answer “no” to any of these questions, we may wish to improve our self-reliance plan.” —Joseph B. Wirthlin
