Barbara Hendersonabout this book: Preparedness may be an entirely new word. It means trying to be better prepared for the future whatever it brings. It seems like an impossibility. People are trying to prepare for an unknown disaster, economic downturn, illness, food shortage, job loss, or a host of other possible problems. If one isn't careful, they might end up paranoid considering everything that 'might happen'. Thankfully there are some steps to take now that will be helpful in any situation. 'Everyday Prepping for Beginners' goes over some things that will help any start their life as a 'prepper'.
This book is written from a Christian World View. The first chapters deal with self-definition, self-discipline, and self-reliance. These set values or boundaries that don't change when problems arise. So, even if your house is gone, you have no job, and the economy has hit bottom, you are still the same person with the same belief system. You have something unchanging on which to stand in changing time. I have received 3 very negative book reviews because of these chapters. All I can say to that is if Christianity offends you then please don't buy the book. Honestly, if you have been through a disaster where normal goods and services were cut off temporarily, or even a major personal crisis, then you know that so much of the time you are not busy doing anything specific. What you are doing mentally is an entirely different story. If you haven't mentally prepared you will find yourself playing mental ping pong and constantly second guessing yourself. Worry and stress will add an unnecessary burden to a situation that is difficult already. So, mental prepping is very necessary to making it through a difficult time with as little stress as possible. Actually, mental prepping is necessary for just getting through a good day!
The rest of the book deals with very basic prepping. I believe prepping begins with a peppers' mindset. That means you prep or prepare for every day. I encourage readers to begin by prepping for a normal full week at a time. Preparedness begins with thinking ahead. I suggest things like setting up a working pantry that will make meal preparation easier. I encourage the readers not to spend any money until they have thought something through. Camping, fire building, arrangements with other family and friends to help each other in a crisis, simple recipes, and many other things are covered.
This is a very simple preppers book. People are encouraged to begin small and work their way up to big. I hope you enjoy reading it. Please leave a kind review.
