The Beginning

Greetings to all new preppers and old ones too! Decided to take the plunge and start a blog today, so be patient with me! I want to explain our life a little so you can get where we are coming from, what we are doing for preps and what our goals are.

Let me first tell you that I am a short, scrawny little thing(5 ft 1 and 90 lbs) - but I sure do pack a punch - I have been called a 44 magnum before! LOL! I will tell you the truth as I see it and won't pull any punches. I am a remnant(true) christian as well, so if you don't like that, then don't read my blogs. I do not belong or attend ANY organized church as most have been compromised and are about just feeling good - I call those folks "Sunday christians." They are super nice to you on Sundays, but come Monday they might stab you in the back!

My husband had been in the army in the 70's and was a sniper. He was in special ops and he told me that the government was BAD and that they ran and controlled all the drugs etc. That was my first step in "awakening" and it has been quite a journey since then - that was in 2000. Thought it was pretty interesting, but it did not effect me at the time, so I didn't pursue the matter further - I just believed him. But (there is always a "but" isn't there?), about 2 years later I was trying to find myself (you know the drill) and the real journey began.

I became "aware" of the world around me about 6 years ago by reading an on-line book by Jason Guenther called "Fallen Watchers." That book sure woke me up - check it out for yourself. The biggest events happened in my life as well - I found and accepted Jesus.

My husband joined the National Guard in May of 2001 and, oops, 911 happened. He always said we should be buying extra food and stocking up, but we never really did - although he would bring home MRE's (military meals - Meals Ready to Eat), but that is about how far we got in our early prepping.

The purpose of this blog is to tell you folks how I started prepping and what we, as a family, have learned along the way. I ended up not being on-line for several years, and when we got another computer and the net, low and behold, TEOTWAWKI was coming at us FAST! At the time, my husband was overseas, in Iraq with the National Guard - so I started prepping on my own (well, with the help of 2 of my kids). He knew about the NWO and all of that, but he could not get the news over there that we could here and he thought I was going a little crazy with him being in a war zone etc. He was medevaced home in August (yes, he is recovering) and he soon saw what I had been talking about and it wasn't long before he was on board and prepping as well. That seems like all we do is prep.

That is how this all started - the next blog will be about what we have been doing for the last 9 months and how we are preparing.

God Bless and Prep ON!


  1. Welcome to PrepperLand, Ernie & Family. Glad to have you on board. Offerig a prayer of Thanks for your hubby's duties- Thank him from an old 70's warrior.
    Get your basics in quick as you can cuz the poop's starting to fly. Hopefully your Man can help with the armaments you'll need. The kids can even help by surrendering the desires for games and A/V toys.
    Remember to remind them: If Momma ain't happy, ain't no one happy.
    God bless,

  2. Thanks Shy! Hubby is an old 70's warrior too - special forces and lots of black ops so he is a pretty good asset to have around - LOL! WE have been prepping for about a year now, but lately it is all-consuming as you probably understand. Time is getting short.
    God Bless and Prep On
