“What are you, a prepper?”
Am I a prepper?
My knee-jerk response is an emphatic, “No!” just before I proceed to waffle- thinking upon the wisdom I see in preparing and decreasing your dependency on outside sources of energy.
Dare I say that it’s even Biblical? (See Proverbs 31) Amy at Homestead Revival tackled this challenging subject beautifully a couple year ago. If you’re wondering if prepping is Biblical, please take the time to read it. She then went further to discuss how we should prepare- not physical specifics- but from a spiritual aspect what prepping should look like in the life of a Christian.
At this time, we aren’t looking to retrofit our home in the event of an emergency. We’re choosing instead to invest our time and money into developing the life skills necessary to maintain our own food production. Knowledge & skills, I believe, are the greatest investment in preparing, not MRE’s & a cache of weapons to protect them…
And perhaps we’ve been prepping longer than I’ve realized… after all, on a small scale, I do have a plan for food. And as we’ve gone through several job changes over the last several years, I know that has been a tremendous comfort to have that stockpile in the basement!
6.) What about toilets?
So there is my meager offering to the discussion. I’m sorry that I can’t really help to answer the question, but thought I would share where we are at this time in case anyone else was curious as well! And don’t forget, please share your ideas, links, and resources if you have any!
