We live, work, and homestead in East Texas on less than 15 acres. I have been mildly prepping for a number of years but just in small increments as my wife was not on board for most of our marriage. This year that changed, as I showed her that Scripturally even God led us to prepare for times of famine during times of great provision. So we have moved towards a much more sustainable lifestyle. The China virus basically cost me my entire career, so we have moved a lot more deeply into homesteading since I have a farm background from when I was a kid. Thank God my wife is in the medical field so for now we are financially keeping our head above water. Of course the vaccine may alter that soon, as we do not do vaccines, especially not this one. Instead we choose to live on, rely on, trust in, and fully stand on our faith in healing provided from the sacrifices made by our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I have become licensed as a Level 3 Texas state commissioned private security officer so hopefully I can find some part time work to help financially until we get the homestead really established. I am a certified NRA handgun instructor, an Active Shooter Incident Instructor, and licensed in Louisiana Church Security also. I know we have a long way to go to be truly efficient in preparing, but at least we have solid plan now. We are also becoming members of THENET which is a East TX faith based preparedness group that consists of dozens of families which meet monthly and learn from one another and cultivate community.
I appreciate this opportunity to learn from others and be able to share our faith with some of you all. Looking forward to getting to know some of you. I pray everyone has a blessed week! Thank you T for putting together this community, I can't believe it took me this long to realize this resource was here.
