Living Like Our Forefathers
Looking at our pioneer heritage, we see that these people spent every day struggling to feed themselves that day and still have enough to put back. They would put food back for themselves and their livestock. I am not suggesting prepping food storage that we all go back to this lifestyle. I am saying that we can learn from the way they lived their lives.
The prepping lifestyle is thinking about more than your immediate needs. Think about your needs for those times when you can’t simply run to the store for something to eat. Think about your family’s needs if the water coming out of the faucet is not fit to drink.
