self reliance

It’s important to know how to take care of yourself and your family. If disaster strikes can you still provide for your family and meet their basic needs? Here’s how.

Comfort Zone

Life Begins At The End Of Your Comfort Zone

Keep It Simple

I would love to live here.

“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practice resignation, unless it was quite necessary. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms…”

– Henry David Thoreau

Place Your Life Before God

Place Your Life Before God

So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you. – Romans 12:1-2 (MSG)

About

My goal is to show people about a better way to pursue success. I feel as though the definition of success has been so distorted many people no longer know how or what they are trying to achieve. I have chosen to use my life experience and my desire for eventual off-the-grid living to show the world what I believe true, attainable and lasting success consists of.

In this vision of success it is necessary to prepare for outcomes that may be different than the day to day life that we have been accustomed too. It also includes a desire for self-sufficiency in my life where I learn to rely less and less on the false comforts of society and learn to challenge myself everyday in the way I live and believe.

I do believe that current events are a wake-up call and that soon our live’s will change. Our priorities will change; our day-to-day activities will change. Whether this coming change is good or bad will need to be determined by each individual. I suspect that many will not like the changes that are coming. People have been conditioned to live in constant comfort and convenience. Sadly, that is not God’s intention for us.

I want to document my transition from living a predictable life of convenience and comfort to a life of meeting the normal challenges of life with the guidance of my loving God.

Jesus is returning soon. Is it today? Is it next week? Next year? 5 years from now? I don’t know and neither do you. I believe God is giving us one final chance to turn towards Him in a lifestyle that He intended for us. I hope that I can inspire you to a new life as I make these changes myself.
