Homemade bread from Food Storage

Homemade Bread using Food Storage
makes 6-8 leaves or approximately 5 doz rolls
Recipe by Alice Nicholes

12 - 14 cups flour -- start with 12 cups
1 cup sugar/honey 1 - 2 TBSP salt
1/2 dry eggs
1 to 2 cups dry milk/buttermilk
1 TBSP dry active yeast
1 cup powdered shortening/butter/margarine
Sift all dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients. Add 16 cups of very warm water into the well, mix in small amounts of the dry ingredients until the dough is a soft sticky bail. Pour out on a floured table. Add flour, 1 cup at a time until the dough is slightly sticky but rubbery.
Let rise to double its size, twice. Mold into loaves or rolls. Rise for another 1/2 hour or the size you desire. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 20 - 30 minutes, depending on the size of loaf/roll. Thump the bread for a hollow sound for doneness. While warm from the oven spread vegetable shortening on the tops, this will keep bread soft.

Dear Sisters
Spring is a busy time of year for all of us. We are grateful that many of you found time to attend the Stake Relief Society Conference in April. We have finally uploaded handouts and a couple of videos to the blog – so check them out. One of the videos went missing and so we were unable to upload the class on “Holiness of Heart” – if anyone has seen a small DV Tape black and red, let us know. I did have to break the videos down into 3 parts in order to upload them. They can only be viewed by clicking on the link from our blog. So enjoy. We want to thank all those who participated by teaching classes, crafts, or providing food. Thank you for your help!
We hope that you are taking the time to implement some of the thoughts that inspired you at Women’s Conference, Stake Conference and General Conference. We have had a spiritual feast over the last several months. Elder Gardner’s counsel to attend our meetings or the temple with questions; was very poignant for me and I hope I can change my habits to make myself sensitive to the spirit. He encouraged us to be in tune with the spirit so our questions can be answered and then bend ourselves to the Lord’s will and ACT! He said if we don’t change anything we might as well have stayed home in bed. It gives new perspective to how we should prepare ourselves for sacrament meeting, the temple, or any other meetings we attend where the spirit is present.
We are grateful for our new Stake Presidency and look forward to hearing more of their counsel. We all have challenges, but life is good. Reach out and share your love with other sisters. There are many out there who are in need of our help. We love you and pray for your happiness and growth in the gospel. Have a great summer!
Love,
Sister Jones
Sister Nicholes

Spotlight


Meet Caroline Perez of the Ely 3rd Ward


My name is Caroline Perez, I was born and raised in Northern California near the Bay Area. I am first generation Peruvian American and LDS. I have one older brother and one younger brother and they are both completely different but they both love to joke around with me, I am the only girl in my family and instead of being spoiled I feel like I have a great connection with my brothers, it wasn’t until my niece was born that our home was filled with even more happiness. During my high school years my mom became my best friend. I would tell her everything. She inspires me so much to be a good mom. My parents got divorced when I was young but we still got to spend time with our dad. He is where we get our sense of humor and our voice when we need to speak up about something. In middle school I got into acting and in high school I was involved in plays and choir. I love to act and want to get back into singing again. I absolutely love to dance, especially to Spanish music. For college, I went to SUU for reasons I did not know until I met my husband there. Six months later we were happily married in the Oakland Temple in 2010. I recently received my associates and plan to do more schooling to learn about videography or anything else that catches my interest. We recently moved to Ely after the birth of our 4 month old son, Nikolas. He is the best thing that has happened to us and we are enjoying every minute of his new life. I like learning new things and am very interesting in making cakes right now. I come off shy but I’m nice and like to make people laugh.

Meet Rebecca Wheable of the Ely 3rd Ward
Rebecca met her husband Michael in Sacramento, CA. They married in 2003 in the Oakland Temple. She has three children, Grace 7, Anne 5, and John 21 months. She moved to Ely when Michael graduated law school and accepted a judicial clerkship position last August. They were blessed when he was hired full time as a district attorney. Rebecca teaches piano and keeps busy at home with the three little ones. She is also an interior designer. She loves to craft, read, do house projects, and take family outings and trips.

RS Stake Theme and Goals for 2012

Thomas S Monson:  We are surrounded by those in need of our attention, our encouragement, our support, our comfort, our kindness…. We are the Lord’s hands here upon the earth, with the mandate to serve and to lift His children.  He is dependent upon each of us.”

Theme For 2012: Guardians of the Hearth

President Hinckley:  “You are the guardians of the hearth.  You are the bearers of the children.  You are they who nurture them and establish within them the habits of their lives.  No other work reaches so close to divinity as does the nurturing of the sons and daughters of God.”  Daughters in my Kingdom pg 148-149

Goals

v Live Up To Your Privileges
          Speaking of the organization of the Relief Society Joseph Smith declared:  You are now placed in a situation where you can act according to those sympathies which God has planted in your bosoms. If you live up to these principles how great and glorious!—if you live up to your privilege, the angels cannot be restrained from being your associates. … If you will be pure, nothing can hinder.

o   Help the Sisters Remember who they are and that they are a valued Daughter of God.

o   No matter what our stewardship we are entitled to blessings that will come to us as we serve faithfully.

Eliza R Snow:  There are many of the sisters whose labors are not known beyond their own dwellings and perhaps not appreciated there, but what difference does that make?  If your labors are acceptable to God, however simple the duties, if faithfully performed, you should never be discouraged.” Daughters in my Kingdom pg 177

v Teach Them To Pray for those they serve

“Each sister’s circumstances are different, visiting teachers need specific guidance from the Holy Ghost so they can know how best to help each one.” Daughters in my Kingdom pg 115

President Kimball taught:

“There are many sisters who are living in rags—spiritual rags. They are entitled to gorgeous robes, spiritual robes. … It is your privilege to go into homes and exchange robes for rags. …

“… You are going to save souls, and who can tell but that many of the fine active people in the Church today are active because you were in their homes and gave them a new outlook, a new vision. You pulled back the curtain. You extended their horizons. …

“You see, you are not only saving these sisters, but perhaps also their husbands and their homes.” Daughters of My Kingdom pg 117
