I am having vision issues which is terrifying to someone whose work and interests lie in reading and writing. Because of this, I am falling behind in some of my reviewing commitments and ask for your support and patience.

Everything You Need to Know to Keep Your Family Safe and Secure—No Matter What
Undaunted by the prospect of TEOTWAWKI (The End of the World as We Know It), Lisa Bedford tackles every what-if and worst-case scenario head-on, offering practical advice on how to prepare your family for whatever might come your way. From a few days without electricity to an unexpected job loss or total chaos after the destruction of a tornado, Survival Mom provides everything you need to become self-reliant and establish plans for your family, including:
preparing the home for a natural disaster
alternative sources of energy in a power’s-out situation
everything you need to know about food storage
personal protection (do I really need to learn how to shoot a gun?)
Deep inside every mom is a Survival Mom whose passion for her family drives her to make the best of the present and prepare for the future. So tap into your Mama Grizzly instincts and channel your worries into action. Whether you’re a full-fledged “prepper” or just getting started, with real-life stories and customizable forms and checklists along with Lisa’s “you can do it” attitude, Survival Mom replaces paranoia and panic with the peace of knowing YOU have the power to keep your loved ones safe and secure.
Straightforward. Organized. Could be overwhelming to some, but a terrific book full of helpful information. A book you can read straight through or one you can just pick up and use for reference when you're interested in a particular topic on emergency preparedness or preparing for a specific disaster scenario. This is one book that will end up underlined, highlighted and tabbed. Check out The Survival Mom website as well.
