Fearing what?

Every day, I welcome what people tell me. I like the honesty and the open discussion that comes from comments I receive on this blog. I like to debate and I don't have a problem with people who tell me that I am wrong. Some days I am.

This last month, however, I have come to one realization. Some people believe that I prep, store food, garden, and learn new skills because I am afraid. That I am doing this out of fear.

I only fear one thing. If you have a spouse and/or kids, you will understand this. I fear not being able to take care of my family no matter what happens. I have been given four incredible blessings to love and care for. It is my primary job to take care of them.

I fear nothing else. Fear leads to so many other negative things like paranoia, cowardice, dependency, and irrational reactions. Fear is not healthy. To me, fear is paralyzing. I refuse to be afraid of anything.

I do not believe the world is going to come to an end. I do not believe that we will all be taken out in one flash. If that does happen, you won't have time to prep or to be afraid anyway.

I believe in being self-sufficient. I believe in not relying on the government. I believe in raising four responsible kids who will be able to provide for themselves when the time comes for them to leave the nest.

By taking the measures I am taking now, I will have nothing to fear because my family will be taken care of. That does give me a great sense of security.

Thanks for reading! Have a great day!


  1. You are doing such a good job!! In our church we are taught "If ye are prepared, ye shall not fear." Your explanation is excellent. Thanks for sharing.

10 Preparedness Items You Should Be Buying Every Month

As crazy as it seems, some people make prepping harder than it has to be. Learning skills can be hard, but the end rewards are so worth it. The work can be hard, but the pay off is that jobs get done and you have accomplished something for the future. However...preppers still need stuff. We can produce a lot of our own things and survive just fine. We still need the items that will make survival easier now and, heaven forbid, if anything bad happens. We need things to keep our lifestyle simpler and easier if something happens. Over the eight years or so that I have been prepping, I have some things that I buy almost every month. Some months when the budget is tight, I might not purchase any of these. Then I appreciate having these things on hand! Below is my list of things I buy every month. I don't make one big trip and buy all these things in one trip. I add them to my cart at the grocery store, department store, online shopping, and whatnot. I spend a little bit every s

New preppers wonder what they should be buying for their preps every month. More experienced preppers wonder what holes they should be plugging in their food storage to be better prepared.
