I have to speak in church on Sunday on self-reliance. I've got loads of good quotes, but not a single story. And you know how boring talks are without stories. Anyone have any ideas???

You can leave a comment or email me at alissa.packer@gmail.com.

thanks from me and the hopefully-not-bored highland ward

You may already be using this reference, but there is always the story of Henry David Thoreau's experiment in living at Walden Pond, as cited by L. Tom Perry in the October 2008 Conference: http://www.lds.org/ldsorg/v/index.jsp?hideNav=1&locale=0&sourceId=73744bb52a73d110VgnVCM100000176f620a____&vgnextoid=2354fccf2b7db010VgnVCM1000004d82620aRCRD

I have a couple of things I could tell you about self reliance from the R.S. Pres. days.
