Today I had the opportunity once again to speak with  someone who has felt all alone in this Preparedness Journey.  For years it has felt like it has just been their family preparing, thinking they were weird and keeping quiet about preparing.  This is yet, another heart-breaking story that is similar to several that I hear a week: Preparedness minded people feeling all alone and isolated.  Each wanting desperately to connect with others who are walking the same journey.   The camaraderie that is so vital to the survival of a society is lacking every where, but  especially in those […]

While we want to Bless others with gifts, it is our goal that the gifts be evaluated by usefulness and encouragement to become more self-reliant and less […]

Some things have been irking me and it was just time for this hostess to SOAP BOX a tad! Seriously, of course I have concerns with society, but my concerns with the preparedness movement are that  signs are beginning to show that there are some folks in the movement that are acting out of motives that are not helpful TO the movement.  I’m concerned with how we as preppers are labeled and what we might be […]
