Gift Giving with a Purpose

The season of  ‘gift giving’  is upon us once again. Agreeably it is more Blessed to give than to receive, many of us are taking a new and more purposeful approach to gift giving due to the current economic climate.  Black Friday violence and antics aside (we always plan to be more than 100 miles from the nearest shopping center that day) much of the spending spree may need some evaluation and overhaul. 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 […]

To get prepared, get fear under control.

Author: Donna Miller There is a great difference that rearranging that subject line above would make.  It could read: “To get fear under control, get prepared.” However, that is not exactly how I feel the true prepared lifestyle actually works. The fact is that most of us have never chosen wisely reacting out of  fear. Chaos, emergencies, and emotional instability often force us into feeling that we  have to make decisions immediately and often on only partial information and even worse, on little if no faith. Fear can be a motivator, but it can also be a jailer or a […]

Attack of the Preparedness Acronyms

In the realm of preparedness there is a wide range of philosophies and along with those come a wide range of acronyms.  If you are new to the preparedness movement or you’ve been doing this a while and are now slapped in the face with a conglomerate of capitol letters being jumbled together and want to make sense of things – I want to start with a short acronym list we are finding in much of the material now arising on the topic of preparedness:   WROL – Without Rule Of Law. TEOTWAWKI – The End Of The World As […]

Just when we’re feeling overwhelmed with what it is we feel called to do (share preparedness living and encourage others) and we’re struggling with feeling like square pegs in the round holes of society – it’s just like our Father to send an encouraging word OUR way! The following note, from someone I hope to have the honor of meeting face to face one day, was such a breath of fresh air and has put more wind in our sails to press on in our sharing. I hope you are inspired by it as we are! “Donna, I am so […]

What’s Wrong with a Typical Storage Food List?

I got an email the other day from a loving and well meaning friend who was sharing how to buy storage food cheaply over time. It was a wonderful gesture and right in line with the need to prepare. Honestly, though, it got me thinking and wondering what’s wrong with the typical food storage list. The principle was actually perfect…to buy a little each week and store it. Within a year you would have enough for two people to survive on for another year. This is a great way of not breaking the bank all at once and crushing the […]
