Adventures With Dad: Seeing My Ancestors Through My Father's Eyes

This week my 10 year-old daughter and I 
went with Grandpa McCune to

LDS Charities Self-Reliance Video Explains How the Mormon Church Cares for Those In Need

Self-reliance is a principle taught by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Those of you who have followed my blog over the years have only glimpsed a small portion of how my church helps people help themselves through food storage and humanitarian service.

Our welfare program is not a handout — it's a hand up. I'm grateful to belong to an organized, loving church that follows Christ's example and ministers to those in need. Can you imagine what a difference we could make in the world if we each did a little bit more to lift and help others?
