About me and my blog–
I am a stay at home mom of four beautiful children from toddler to teen and wife to one sweet husband. A crazy do-it-yourselfer and member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the Mormons). We were casual preppers before the kids came along, but seriously, how can you have children and not want to be able to provide for them in all circumstances? So the prepping went in high gear over 12 years ago and we’ve been at it ever since.
I love preparedness. I am a food storage junkie. I get excited about learning something new I can do with powdered milk or wheat or whatever other survival skill may come in handy. And I love a good challenge. To me, preparedness is a big adventure where there’s always something new to learn or do. Crazy, I know. I also love being outdoors and hiking, shooting, fishing, etc. I’ll be honest with you though, I do not love vacuuming or dishes or laundry!
I started this blog to help reduce the learning curve for others and as a record for myself. Of course nothing beats your own experience, but why not learn from mine? It shouldn’t have to take you 10 years to learn the things I’ve learned, so I’m here to share experiences and information I’ve gleaned from my own years preparing for emergencies and an uncertain future. Most of what I write I have actually tried or done. If I haven’t, I’ll let you know.
I’m so excited to continue learning and sharing preparedness, food storage, survival, and self reliance information with all of you!
