Today’s article is the second part in the two-part series of “The Irreplaceable Ultra Important Preparedness Tool.”   The most important preparedness tool that will NEVER let us down and that we can never have enough of is our Spiritual Preparedness. It’s the First Principle of Preparedness not because of some public relations agenda, not because it sounds all warm and fuzzy, but simply because it IS the most important asset that any preparedness-minded person can have. In fact, the strength of...
Secret

After watching the extensive devastation that’s happened in the Philippines and the Midwest region of the U.S. this past week, I felt the need to emphasize the most important resource that we all MUST have in order to be able to withstand something as devastating as what these millions of people have had to endure.  Image Courtesy basketman at Freedigitalphotos.net So, today, I have a bit of a secret to share with you.  I’m not happy it is a secret, mind you. I do earnestly wish that more...

Question: Would Hitler impact your preparedness today and if so, what would you do to STOP him from doing so? Or do you believe that if Hitler were around today it would have no impact and no place in the magnitude or pace at which you work to prepare your family for tough times ahead? Knowing what you know now, would you have the courage or determination to stop Adolph Hitler if he were still in power today?  What if he were doing to your own country what he did to so many others? Would you...

I have often shared that part of the reason why I do what I do is because I just can't handle the thought of millions and millions of people needlessly suffering when just a little bit of guidance, encouragement or support could have made a difference. My entire life is seasoned with the various answers to those prayers that I've offered--answered in the form of the right person at the right time to say or do the perfect thing.   I realize that it may seem like all we do on this site is shed...

By Kellene Bishop Over the years I’ve received e-mails from readers expressing their feeling of being overwhelmed. By the end of the e-mails a familiar question is brought up—“Why Bother?”   I admit, I’ve had days, even weeks in which I am overwhelmed by everything that I still need to do. When that happens I just take a mental break or I’ll go to the thrift store and find something fabulous that assists me in my preparedness efforts Whether it’s a “time out” or retail therapy, we all need to...

By Kellene Bishop     There are great deal of headlines making the news lately which all point towards the realistic possibility of a terrible drought. Drought, famine, pestilence—it’s not exactly something that we spend much of our days thinking about. However, in my desire to fortify my Spiritual and Mental Preparedness (the first 2 priorities of the 10 Principles of Preparedness) I indulged in some major research into the history of famines in world history and the human response to these...

By Kellene Bishop Do you get frustrated at times with people you care about looking at you like you’re a couple slices short of a loaf? Would you like to be more successful in helping your fellowmen become more self-reliant?  Then read on with an open mind and heart because I’ve got some “tough love” to pass on to you; but I do so knowing that if you take to heart my suggestions two great consequences will come about 1) You’ll become more sure and competent in your own preparedness efforts,...

By Kellene Bishop Some time ago I was greatly disturbed by an article which announced that a state judge ruled that New York Subway  employees who stood by as mere spectators as as a young woman was gang-raped were innocent of any wrong doing.  The judge stated that the workers had no obligation to help the girl regardless of the all of the safe options that such onlookers had to help the woman such as the telephone, walkie-talkies, or at least the intercom system. and When you read of this...

By Kellene Bishop I’d like to share just a little bit of perspective that I thought of while watching the events in Joplin unfold over the past couple of weeks. I have to admit, I read everything that was printed on the subject, listened to many radio interviews, watched YouTube videos and viewed many pictures which reflected the unfathomable loss that the people of Joplin suffered so suddenly.  Doing so taught me a few things, reinforced lessons which I had already learned and gave a face and...

 We interrupt this series in order to lighten up a bit! Frankly, all of this “I have to tell them about this nasty stuff NOW!” has been a bit depressing. With all that I believe in terms of “panic-free preparedness” it’s been a bit challenging to write about so much turmoil. So, if it’s all right with you, I’m going to take a little detour today and go back to the beginning—the first Principle of Preparedness. After all, I think that with all of the time-sensitive wake-up call kind of things I’...
