The moment I became empowered to learn how to provide for myself, to grow real food and store it for several years, came during a time when I was at my weakest. I was in an abusive relationship. I felt weak and I was dependent on my spouse. Learning how to be self-reliant, and preventing scenarios that could hurt my future family, made me feel stronger and in control. Eventually I was able to leave the negative situation. However my love for learning how to really take care of myself, without being dependent on others, stayed with me.

I believe that every family and home can be empowered take care of themselves. By sharing my love of self-reliance, I hope to create more confident families and people. Look through my blog for more information that can help create a home that is ready for whatever life throws at you.
