Today, a lot of families are working hard to become more self-sufficient and better prepared for potential difficulties ahead. Many people are learning brand-new skills, growing crops, and storing food, water, and supplies, in case things become significantly more challenging. We have shared quite a bit on the importance of preparedness, and proper whole grains and food storage.

Today I had the opportunity once again to speak with someone who has felt all alone in this Preparedness Journey.
