12 Principles of Self-Reliance

12 Principles of Self-Reliance

The Lord has declared, “It is my purpose to provide for my saints” (D&C 104:15). This revelation is a promise that the Lord will provide temporal blessings and open the door of self-reliance. He has also declared that “it must needs be done in [His] way” (D&C 104:16). To receive the blessings of self-reliance, we must accept and live the principles of self-reliance, which include the following:
  1. Exercise Faith in Jesus Christ (D&C 104:15)
  2. Use Time Wisely (Alma 34:32)
  3. Be Obedient (D&C 130:20–21)
  4. Manage Money (D&C 104:78)
  5. Work: Take Responsibility (D&C 42:42; 2 Nephi 2:16, 26)
  6. Solve Problems (Ether 2:18–19, 23; 3:1, 4)
  7. Become One, Work Together (Moses 7:18; D&C 104:15–17)
  8. Communicate: Petition and Listen (D&C 8:2)
  9. Persevere (Hebrews 12:1; D&C 58:4)
  10. Show Integrity (Mosiah 4:28; Job 27:5; Articles of Faith 1:13)
  11. Seek Learning and Education (D&C 88:118–119)
  12. Stay On Task, Receive Ordinances (D&C 84:20; D&C 136:4; 1 Nephi 18:2–3)
These principles are taught more fully in the booklet My Foundation: Principles, Skills, Habits. We invite you to diligently study and apply them and teach them to your family. As you do, your life will be blessed. You will learn how to act on your path toward greater self-reliance.
