Group Lesson Plans

Home / Group Lesson Plans

We are often asked if we teach classes. While we would LOVE to say yes to each request, we just can’t. With young families, working husbands, and busy schedules we are limited in the events we can attend. We created these lesson plans for you to use when you have events, group meetings, enrichments, or even just family activities. The lesson plans and/or handouts can also be helpful for you to share with friends and family members. We encourage you to use these, share these, give them to people you know who are in charge of putting together group meetings, community trainings, or enrichment classes.


Each download comes with a flyer you can print and fill out your own specific information to post up at your church, school, or work location. Also included are invitations you can cut out and hand our or pass along.

Each lesson comes with a lesson plan that outlines exactly how to run your lesson. You can use these as basic guidelines, or follow them exactly.

We developed these cheat sheets for you to study, so that you can feel confident and have all the information you need to teach an informative and complete class.

Use these to tape up as you go through the different parts of the lessons. Visual aids help you keep on task and provide something for class members to stay focused on and/or to organize their notes into sections.

You wouldn’t want class members to leave empty-handed now would you? Each lesson plan comes with handouts you can print for your class members so they have all of the most important information to keep and use at home.

  • Thank you so much for all this marvelous info on food storage. You have taken the worry and overwhelming feeling every time I thought about doing it. Those baby steps are perfect for a novice. I just received the calling of emergency preparedness person in my ward and I came across your website. An answer to prayer so that I might truly be of help to our sisters. God bless both of you.

    • Thanks so much for the comment. We’re glad it’s helping you 🙂

  • Vee

    Jodi and Julie – you two are the best thing that’s ever happened to food storeage. I really can not believe you are sharing all this. I had a late start preparing to teach a lesson on food storeage and thankfully I had signed up for your site and received all this wonderful info from you this morning. It saved me.. I hope everyone is as excited as I am about your program.

    I would like to use these steps but cannot download them . It wants me to “Pin” each one which , I do not mind but it still will not let me download. Help!

    • When I hover over it the pin it button comes up, but if I click just to the side of the pin it button, the actual file comes up. Can you try that and let us know if it works. We’d like to fix it if it doesn’t work. We have been having trouble with our pinning feature lately

    • I made a fix that takes the pin button off unless we SPECIFY to put it on. So I think that should fix it now!

  • Have been receiving your emails and updates for about two years. Started prepping (no, I’m NOT a camo-wearing,EOTWAWKI, live in a tent-in-the-woods type of prepper; but I DO RESPECT THEM very much) for hard times and much like Karen, my wife died and was resuscitated last year, I had a heart attack and bypass this year and we’ve gotten behind. BUT WE WILL CATCH UP! Thank you for placing all this material in one place for those who wish to take care of their family and themselves and need a little help in know where to begin.

  • Karen

    I began receiving Baby Steps a while ago. I was doing well with my food storage and then (I am ashamed to say) that way too much life happened( broken bones, my husband’s pnuemonia, etc.) and I have lost my way. Is it possible to sign up and begin again with the Baby Steps?

  • Carlyn3676

    I agree with all these good people. Thank You for All of your hard work and We all need to prepare for hard times ahead.:)

  • Owenf

  • leann

    Im sort of new, signed up awhile back and just got a little extra cash to start my storage. I was wondering if anyone else has the problem of getting started.  I know with the economy in the shape its in and where it could possibly be going that it vital I do this. for the simple fact you just never know what tomorrow may bring. One day Im gunho then when I start I get overwhelmed letting my mind go haywire. Has anyone else felt this way or is it just me?

    Thank you gals so much,


    • Leann, we both had problems actually getting started, which is why we
      developed the babysteps. Originally they were just for us to keep us
      motivated and help us feel a sense of achievement at accomplishing a
      small step. Hopefully you can be encouraged by going through the
      babysteps too. Don’t think about everything you HAVEN”T done yet,
      just focus on the things you HAVE done!
