Prepare Your Heart

by Joseph
I have such an incredible family.   My wife and children have been such an inspiration and support. My oldest daughter shared this with me, and it is so pertinent to the Preparation Call and to the theme of this site.  I hope you enjoy… Remind the people to be subject to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready to do whatever is good, to slander no one, to be peaceable and considerate, and always to be gentle toward everyone.  Titus 3:1-2 This is such a spectacular verse!  You may not be a Christian or of the same beliefs, […]

Don’t just Stockpile!

Over the years, I have felt emphatically that I was to lead my family to be “in preparation”.  When I first heard the call to prepare, I had an intellectual perception that I was going to flee to the mountains, and begin stockpiling food, water and other supplies. Later, I began to realize that my call to prepare was NOT a call to hoard food, or to live in seclusion and fear.  On the contrary, the preparation journey was to make a safe place for sharing – during a time of crisis when people would be prone to fear and […]
