Well, hello there!

As you may have noticed, (or not?) we took an unexpectedly long summer break from posting.  What started as an innocent holiday, ended up being a serious absence from the blogging world. 

With the events of the past few weeks looming over the news, we are increasingly aware of how important emergency preparedness and food storage is.  It is not something to just think about, it is something to have, both knowledge of and actual tangible supplies. So we're getting back on the horse to continue our journey with you.

The blog will be running a bit differently from now on, mostly to account for the changes in our personal situations, but the general content and ideas are the same.

*a weekly motivational quote:  a thought or scripture to encourage you to keep going, or to give you a pat on the back for doing what you are already doing.

*a weekly guide to what you should add to your supplies:  this is a great way for those of us who are overwhelmed at the idea of having 72 hour kits, car kits and a 3 month supply of food all at our demand.  Each week, we will tell you what it is you need to buy/gather for your supply and that's all you need to worry about until the next week.  Simple, inexpensive and relatively painless!

*some other fun post: maybe a recipe, maybe a tutorial on a particular skill, maybe a real life experience from folks who've lived first hand through natural disasters, whatever it is, hopefully it will provide you with some new knowledge or inspire you in some way.  As always, if you have questions, please email us or leave a comment and we'll do a question and answer session soon.

Be sure and come back tomorrow for our annual emergency preparedness holiday gift guide--get ready to stuff those stockings with batteries!

I am so glad to see you back!! I have been doing much towards preparedness in the past few months. I have even been teaching others about it. Our ward hosted a 72 hour kit camp out to test our kits overnight and everyone who attended found something that they wish they had stocked in their kit or found a way to improve it after some practical application. We are hoping to make it an annual event. I am also taking a public speaking class and my final speech is a persuasive speech in which to goal is to sway people to my way of thinking or to get them to act on what ever we choose to speak about. I will be speaking about emergency preparedness and will provide handouts to help them in their journey to be more prepared. I am so glad you're back so I can include your blog on my handouts!
