So, a dear friend sent me a very informative link about food storage after the grid shuts down. Preparing for very hard times is becoming a priority for wise people and I am thankful that I have women friends who are sharp, innovative and concerned about loved ones, friends and neighbors’ survival in the near future. You men will also find the prepping blogs useful and informative.

When my husband Mark and I lived in our riverfront home, I had a wonderful garden where I grew corn, tomatoes and squash. We saved a lot of money at the grocery store and it was a delight to watch the seeds sprout into full-grown vegetables for cooking and eating. We would be wise to utilize our backyards now and practice growing our own organic produce.

I recently watched some excellent preparing videos and hearing bout my friend Teresa’s canning protocol, I decided to include a section, (in my blog) on living abundantly when scarcity and hardship abounds. I asked Teresa of she would partner with me about prepping blogs and she obliged. She has a plethora of experience, information and success in many prepping areas.

It would behoove all of us, to have an open mind and research preparing for end times as much as possible because we cannot depend on the government for help. We women are blessed with great emotional and physical resiliency and according to Proverbs 31, we achieve and succeed greatly in many areas, including

Let us review from Proverbs 31 about her wealth of talents and abilities which include resourcefulness, organization, farming, sewing, real estate dealings and community-civic affairs.

10 A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies.11 Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value.12 She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life.13 She selects wool and flax and works with eager hands.14 She is like the merchant ships, bringing her food from afar.15 She gets up while it is still dark; she provides food for her family and portions for her servant girls.16 She considers a field and buys it; out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.17 She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks.18 She sees that her trading is profitable, and her lamp does not go out at night.19 In her hand she holds the distaff and grasps the spindle with her fingers.20 She opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy.21 When it snows, she has no fear for her household; for all of them are clothed in scarlet.22 She makes coverings for her bed; she is clothed in fine linen and purple.23 Her husband is respected at the city gate, where he takes his seat among the elders of the land.24 She makes linen garments and sells them, and supplies the merchants with sashes.25 She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come.26 She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue.27 She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.28 Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her:29 “Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.”30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.31 Give her the reward she has earned, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.

I encourage all you amazing sisters to seek God’s wisdom for how you are t prepare your family for the coming difficult times. God be with you in this prepping journey!
