Sometimes you stumble across a blog that steals your heart. This was definitely the case when I found Sequoia’s blog. (There is a link to it at the bottom of this guest post! You must check it out!) She is an amazing writer, and the topics covered on her blog go right along with everything that I feel is important. Not to mention that she always has wonderful pictures to accompany each post!
This guest post that she has so wonderfully supplied for my blog is amazing. She highlights the importance of financial security. This is a MUST for those hoping to work on being prepared. If you don’t have your finances in order, you can not think seriously about getting ready for the future. The thing that makes her post so credible is that it is the true story of what happened to her family several years ago. She has applied principles from Dave Ramsey, who I am a huge supporter of. Enjoy this awesome post, and take her advice to heart! Continue reading
When you put together 72 Hour Kits for your family, don’t forget the youngest members! Even if your baby isn’t born yet, it is still a good idea to have a kit for them as well.

Keep this kit with the 72 Hour Kits for the rest of your family and each person will be ready for an emergency. If you would like to embed this infographic to your site, there is a code right underneath the graphic! Continue reading
Now I know you all remember Patrice Lewis, from Rural Revolution who provided us with this amazing guest post a couple of weeks ago! Well, I got to talking to her, and found out that she is currently working on a book all about preparedness. She hopes to finish her book in upcoming months, and as soon as she does, it will be made available to purchase as an E-Book.
Patrice is such a great writer, I simply cannot wait for this book to come out. In the meantime though, she has provided another post, and the cool thing about this one is that it is taken straight out of her book! So think of this as a sneak preview of what is to come! After you read the post, you will realize how awesome this book is going to be! (And don’t worry, I will let you know when her book comes out so you don’t miss it!) Continue reading
I found an article a few days ago that has been on my mind quite a bit. The article can be found here. But if you don’t want to read it, I’ll tell you what the basic gist of it is. Columbia Food Laboratories conducted a recent study testing the oxygen levels in a couple of major food storage brands. Oxygen is one of the four factors that can reduce the shelf life of food (the others are heat, light, and moisture). Ideally, any long term food storage should contain less than 2% oxygen.

Some crazy things have been going on here in our fair country! I hope that everyone had a safe and exciting Independence Day holiday yesterday!
I live in Utah, and it feels like the entire state is up in flames. Other western states are in big trouble as well, namely Colorado! I have a dear friend who is a firefighter here in Utah, and she hasn’t had a day off of work in over a month. We are lucky that a fire hasn’t come anywhere near our house, but many others haven’t been so lucky. Continue reading
