Let me guess…
You want to be better prepared for what life may throw at you. You feel it is important to be self-reliant and you don’t want to count on others (or the government) to provide for your needs.
But you aren’t there yet and you aren’t exactly sure where to start.
You are overwhelmed. Discouraged sometimes. Wondering if it is really worth it.
But you can’t just give up. You care deeply about your family and want to be able to provide for them no matter what. Job loss, natural disaster, serious injury, heck, even just dinner tonight.
So what to do? The project of “getting prepared” seems so HUGE. You don’t have the time. The skills. The know-how. The money. The patience.
IT IS FRUSTRATING
Let Me Simplify it For You!
I have a passion. Some may call it a talent and I want to share it with you. I want to simplify the process of becoming “prepared” for you so that it becomes do-able. Please let me!
My passion is organizing! I get giddy when I can take something HUGE and overwhelming and break it down into simple steps that make it do-able. It is FUN.
I also believe strongly, like you do, that being prepared is my responsibility. I should care for myself and my family. I remember the first time the weight of this responsibility really fell on my shoulders. My husband had just started law school and we had both quit our jobs and emptied our bank account in order for him to do so. I was pregnant with twin boys and due in a month. I was overwhelmed with an incredible need and yearning to provide for them. It was powerful. I commend you for that same desire. Society benefits when more people are self-reliant.
I have combined my passion for organizing with my belief in self-reliance and preparedness to create this website. You will find printables, checklists, quick and simple projects, step by steps (like this one for a 72 hour kit), and even full courses all with the purpose of simplifying preparedness for YOU.
My Name Is Misty Marsh:
I don’t prepare because I’m living in fear of some certain big disaster, though I’m sure my life will include some tough physical challenges (power outages, job loss, lack of clean water, financial difficulties). I prepare because I want to be ready for my daily life. My life consists of making dinner every day, creating meaningful traditions in our home, teaching my children, and loving my husband. Sure, my life may include a job loss (it did 5 years ago) or a possible natural disaster (I’ve been in the eye of a large hurricane), but those things don’t happen every day. My life happens every day and I want to be prepared to make the most of it. If preparing for the big disasters makes it difficult to enjoy my everyday life, then it isn’t worth it. I believe being prepared should make my life easier, not more difficult.
If you feel the same, then I would love to have you join me on my journey!
