Growing is more than a Season. We are constantly growing. Growing food. Growing skills. Growing families. Growing communities. Growing character. With that in mind we approached this Digital Issue of PREPARE with how we can not only grow our own food, but how we can raise up a child who is well prepared and secure.
With warmer weather here and the winter thaw in full swing, many people experience Spring Fever and are ready to try their hand at gardening, perhaps for the very first time. Their enthusiasm is applauded and appreciated, however, it is important to avoid “The pitfalls of planting your garden too early.” There’s much to be learned from the wisdom and patience of a seasoned gardener. Enthusiastic gardeners not only risk jumping the gun on timing, but, as I am well aware first hand – a newbie can really plant much more than we can handle at harvest time. That’s why this is the best “Advice for New Gardeners: Start Small.” You’d rather have a manageable, productive plot than a run-away acre of mayhem. If you can’t grow food – then FIND food! Of course, knowing how to cook what you’ve found helps too. So “16 Recipes for Basic Wild Edible Weeds” should help you bring your foraging skills into the skillet and treat your taste buds. Also read how one “Frugal Mother of Three Now Stores Their Own Healthy Food for 25 Years” with a new exciting invention.
As children grow and require special nurturing in this tumultuous world, “Teaching Survival and Preparedness To A Child” is not only vital for your peace of mind, but your child’s safety as well. Whether you’re trying to figure out how you will be “Bugging Out with Children” or planning outings that are “Teaching Youth Survival Skills”, their future abilities are in our adult hands right now. It is our responsibility to pass along physical and mental preparedness. It may seem unorthodox but to avoid preparing our children is doing them a disservice. But there are ways that will capture their sense of involvement. As one of the author’s suggests, if “You want prepper children, Play Minecraft!” to help develop critical thinking skills and more. The safety of our children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews and younger generations is a vital part of preparedness – both ours as adults to pass it on and theirs as well. That is why we are pleased to bring a new Preparinar at the end of April that is focused on “Child Safety & Security”. Be sure to click on that announcement in this issue so you can register to learn tips that can help you focus on the safety of the children in your life!
In closing, regardless of your religion, there are pearls of wisdom in an article designed to help define “The Best Reason for Christians to Prepare.” Our hope is that in that and any other article, you’ll find encouragement and evidence that you are not preparing out of fear or paranoia – but out of hope and generosity. To help others and to stay at peace – even while many other people may be panicked.
