Starting with The Basics 

Source: http://gph.is/2rsuP23

The best place to start on your prepping journey is at the beginning. This may seem like a no-brainer but it’s really not. I meet and speak with so many people who have no idea where to begin. It can be a little bit overwhelming when looking at all that needs to be accomplished in a time frame that remains unknown. A disaster or social upheaval may occur in the next hour, minute, day, week, month, or year ahead. We just don’t know. The one thing that is absolutely certain is that if you do nothing then you will make zero progress. 

Time to Start 

So you have decided to begin taking steps to provide and protect your family in the event of a disaster… Good choice!

You might be wondering where to begin. I know when I first started working towards this goal myself, I felt overwhelmed. There is a lot to learn, organize and train for. The key though is to begin. It will get easier as you move forward. For now, don’t let yourself become overwhelmed. That is the surest way to fail. This is one area where you don’t want to fail. There are people counting on you.

Benefits of Prepping 

It wasn’t too long ago that preppers; those people who we thought were hiding out in some mountain hut were the topic of many jokes. Little did we know, they were right all along. 

They weren’t living in the wilderness, surviving on wild berries and earthworms (which are edible if you were wondering). They were our neighbors. They were the people who fixed the leaking pipes in our bathrooms, represented us in court cases, fixed our cars, made our pizzas and prescribed medications when needed. Yes, preppers were everywhere. They still are!

Prepping is Necessary

If you are paying attention, it becomes clear that disasters of different kinds cause havoc in the lives of millions of

people each year around the globe. Many times these people are caught off-guard and unprepared.  These disasters cause physical, emotional, economic and social trauma in the lives of those they touch. Although you can never truly eliminate these effects; you can lessen the trauma caused and soften the blow to you and your loved ones by being prepared.  

Be Prepared

Right now, all across our country and world, people are recognizing the signs of change. What this change is going to bring about in the form of societal shifts and government functions is really anyone’s guess. There are people who consider themselves “experts” and these people are telling others exactly what is going to go down; how it’s going to happen and when it’s going to occur. DON’T Listen to these predictions! No one knows the answer to these questions. Anyone who claims to know this information is usually trying to sell you something in the next sentence. 

Prepare  Now

In the event of a disaster, you may be on your own for a period of time. I have experienced this more than a few times

in the past several years. There was one time where the streets in my neighborhood were impassable for almost a week. There was no electricity, phone or internet service. The neighborhood was on our own. I’m happy to say that we survived!

So What Exactly Is This Thing I’m Doing Here?

The simple answer is: I don’t know!

First things first… a little background about me. Not too long ago, I had a job that I loved more than anything. I think that was part of the reason I stand here today… baffled. It was more than a job. It was a calling; a mission. I was good at it! People loved me! I was a kids and youth pastor for 12 years. I put it before everything, even God himself! …

God Not Government

If there is anything the past few years has taught me, it is the importance of being prepared.

Since 2018 my family has experienced several blizzards, a micro-burst and other severe weather related events. These situations have caused disruptions in our everyday lives; in many cases for at least a week or more. We have weathered each storm and have learned many lessons. It’s important to learn from each event. What did you do right? What did you do wrong?

Weathering Storms

The question isn’t will I encounter financial storms in my life?  The question is what do I do when I encounter financial storms?  They will come.  You need to be ready or else you are setting yourself up for disaster.  “Wisdom is a shelter as money is a shelter, but the advantage of knowledge is this: that wisdom preserves the life of its possessor.”clx   Take the time now, to prepare, so that when the storms come, you will be ready.  By keeping the following information in mind, you will be able to overcome difficulties and even come out stronger. 

The Storms Of Life

Many times life is calm and serene. We go about our days without much worry. These are the days without storms.

Occasionally, a small storm may roll in. It may be expected or it may surprise us. It rattles us but doesn’t cause too much trouble.

Sometimes a large storm hits. It may cause some damage but not enough to alter our life. We may have some trouble but we quickly move on.

Then there are the ferocious storms of life. There is major destruction. The landscape is forever changed. Our perspective changes. Nothing will ever be the same.

Are you prepared?

God Bless
