Phoenix LDS Woman Says Faith, Preparedness Sustains Her
In an article on how Phoenix-area residents are coping following the September 11th terrorist attacks and the possibility that other attacks may follow, LDS Church member Barbara Chamberlin said she still can't believe the attacks, but she now finds "Nothing is surprising." "I won't be surprised at things that happen, whether they are for good or for bad." Chamberlin, 29, a stay-at-home mom who cares for her 2-year-old son and is expecting another child, relies on her faith to get her through, as well as the Church's preparedness teachings. She has an extra closet full of wheat, sugar, beans and rice "should something happen," though she admits she's not sure what that would be.
