Are You A Prepper?


There is a new show called Doomsday Preppers, have you watched it?  O.K. so I have.  Each episode shows a family that has their own understanding of what they predict will be their "doomsday."  Hey, who am I to judge their ideals.  I just appreciate their conviction to what they believe.  I have learned some pretty good ideas by watching.

So, I am a prepper in the fact that first, I want to secure my salvation in Jesus - this is how I plan to "prep."  However, the ideas for food storage, power outages and such can benefit anyone in the case of severe weather. 

Do I plan to go "crazy" with this, no.  I don't think I will "need" to.  I am going to start the new year with a better understanding of what and how to store things.  It is in my hoarder nature after all...

Do you prep or have any good ideas you want to share?  Do you know of a blog hop for this?  Thanks.

Blessings from Ringle, Wisconsin.

I do like to be prepared for power outages here in Canada.. But we are quite used to the weather although thank the Lord we have not had anything drastic.. I think we need to use our heads as well as trusting on the Lord..

Hi Jacky! That is a popular question right now, since there is a prediction that the world is supposed to end, Dec. 21st! I believe that we should do our part in preparing for whatever God deals with us about. My husband and I have differing opinions about this so I go with what he says. Some may be convicted about prepping for one type of situation, while others prepare differently. I just want to use wisdom by using the food and items that I may have obtained, before they get old! I think a blog hop is a good idea! I have a lot of prepper type blogs in my feed; the best one is homestead survival. It links to other blogs as well. I have to be careful not to get 'caught up' with all of the blogs and ideas they share because it can be overwhelming at times! I really don't know when 'enough is enough,' so I continue to add to my garden and pantry every year! Mostly because I love to garden, but also, to prepare for whatever! Thanks for asking this question! Blessings from Bama! (Sorry so long!)

I recently acquired a large freezer which is much easier to fill with food, however I was reminded that taking the time to can is useful if there were a power outage. I would hate to think of all my food going to waste because of a power outage, whereas canning food would be no worries!
