"I'm SO Overwhelmed!!"

That's the thought of most people when they consider this "prepping" adventure.  They start reading blogs, seeing people's massive pantries, reading about people living off grid, and then simply get bogged down by how far behind they are and how much there is to do!  It seems impossible! Some people give up at that point.  Don't be that person.  

So how can we break this seemingly overwhelming task into steps that are realistic?  Take it easy...breathe...pray.  Remember: We're not going to be so stuck on fearing the future that we forget to enjoy today!

Spiritual preparation is *the* most important.  You will never have real peace until you surrender your life to Jesus Christ (Galatians 2:20-21).  Once He is in His rightful place, everything else falls into place.  The promises of the Bible are then for YOU, not just for others.  

So get right with the Lord. 

Now let's think about physical things that would be important in an emergency:

1. Water
2. Food
3. Shelter
4. Protection
5. First Aid/Medicine
6. Various Unusual Skills

Of course the order of importance depends on the emergency. These are the main topics we will be delving into on this blog.  

Slowly, but steadily. 

We'll talk how to begin water storage soon.  Until then, what topics would you add to my list of six?
