Are You Preparing Your Heart, Mind And Soul Correctly?

We all have read the articles about people who prepare for an EMP (electromagnetic pulse), financial collapse, natural disaster, even the zombie apocalypse. People are stock piling food, water, self defense items. Having bug out bags and locations. All of this is not a bad thing, on the contrary it is wise to be prepared. My question today is, are you preparing your heart correctly? No, I am not talking about getting into shape,...

Are You Prepared For Silence?

We live in a very noisy world. TV, radio, video games, ear buds in the ears playing music or audio books some sort of manufactured noise is usually going on around us. This noise allows for your mind to stay distracted, sometimes to the point of avoiding meaningful deep thought, that of things you might want to avoid. But what happens when the power goes out and all you have left is silence? Have you ever just sat in your home in...

Live In The Country It May Be Safer

The reason I purchased my home was based on location to my elderly parents.  They are both in their 80′s and I made a choice to live close to them and not having them live under my roof.  It was a win/win for both of us.  They don’t lose their independence, I don’t go crazy having them in my house but yet I am close enough to watch over them and help them as needed. My focus was on my parents.  Looking back, I should have encouraged...

Train Up A Child

Yesterday while walking through the grocery store parking lot I heard a father yelling at his son to come over to the car.  I mean he was yelling.  The son looked to be about four maybe five, too young to not have had a parent holding his little hand in the first place in a busy parking lot like that.  After some yelling, the counting started.  You know “if you are not over in by the time I count to three you’re going to get it,...

When Technology Fails

Technology is all is all around us, from our smart phones, tablets, notebooks, Wi-Fi connections, internet, etc.  Where ever we turn we either use it or use something that uses it. Think about paying for gas at the pump, there is technology involved, you swipe your card, the pump is connected to an internet connection to verify that your card is valid to charge. Same with the grocery store, Wal-Mart, Target, Home Depot.  When you walk...

How to Prep when in Debt

The other day I was consulting with a client when the topic came up of building up prepping supplies while trying to pay off debt. As you know, I am a firm believer of not being dependent on any type of institution and that includes banks.  Living debt free is a huge part of being a self reliant.  When you don’t have a mortgage, car payment or credit cards that require a chunk of your income then you can put that much more money...

Christian Prepper

As a Christian I sometimes struggle with whether or not my prepping is a lack of faith in God or a testimony to the brain He gave me to be prudent and interpret what is happening in the world and properly get my house in order and teach /encourage others to do the same. After all,  Matthew 6:19-21 (CEV) says Don’t store up treasures on earth! Moths and rust can destroy them, and thieves can break in and steal them. Instead, store up...
