Four Procedures For Survival in Your Camp, by ARD

We recently saw how important it is to uphold 2 Chronicles 7:14. Although we have known that this beloved United States that we call home is not quite so “united”, we have discovered there are more Christians than there are non-Christians. (If God be for us who can be against us!) For some time, the liberals have used the media to be their trumpet or voice, which has made it appear that they are the majority. But I tell you this; I believe that what has occurred recently, with the election of Donald Trump, is that the normal quiet Christian (myself included) has realized that to survive in America we must stand up, voice our Godly opinion, and act and also understand that prayer does change things! Miracles are real, but they do not occur without faith, trust in our Lord, and action or prayer on our part. You can study, read every survival blog, and have the best “prepper” camp in the world, but without God on your side you will not survive. Given the fact that your camp is pretty much “ready to rock when it all goes down”, I ask you to take a step back, look … Continue reading

New Year’s Leadership-Part 2, by Sarah Latimer

Shifts (Continued) It is well recognized that the biblical Hebrew word for “house” is meant to refer to a man’s wife. The thinking is that a man builds a house by first taking a wife and then together they become one and make a family. So, how important is a wife to a man? Well, she is his home and is the one who enables him to have a comfortable and safe place to go (at least one that’s emotionally safe), a place to build a family, a place he can call his own to bring others, and even a place that demonstrates his honor within the community. She, through the work she does in the home and in the community, brings him honor also. Beyond being a child and a princess of the Most High God, there is no greater honor or role I can have than to be the home-maker for Hugh. I’m Hugh’s partner in life, and I am his home. I’m the being with whom he has family, comfort, and honor. My efforts and behavior brings honor (or dishonor) upon him within our of community of influence, and his honor is also my honor. He loves, … Continue reading

Giving Ourselves As A Gift During The Holidays, by Sarah Latimer

The Judeo-Christian community is celebrating Christmas and/or Hanukkah this week and getting ready to bring in the new year 2017. Many people are off work and spending the week with family and friends. Some of you may be traveling, and some of you are at home. Many are not alone, but some of you are. No matter where you find yourselves and whether you are alone or not, you have something of value to give during these holidays– yourself, time, and knowledge, and in sharing these you can practice a little prepping for the future, too. I have a few ideas to get your own ideas flowing on how you might go about this, but each of you has your own talents, your own circumstances, and available resources. You know your family, friends, and community; I don’t. Just let this be a launching pad from which you begin to brainstorm your own ideas, share your abilities, and build on them as a family/group. If you’ve been reading SurvivalBlog for a while now, you have some good basic knowledge of preparedness that is valuable to share with family and friends. If you are alone and thinking about what it might be … Continue reading

A Different Look At House Keeping and Preparing for Guests, by Sarah Latimer

Ladies, when you are out in your front yard watering and some indistinguishable person sitting behind dark windows of an SUV or truck drives by and gives a little honk and waves, what is your automatic reaction? Do you smile and wave back? If you live in a fairly safe community, you probably do. I may not wave back, but I usually look up with a smile to see who it is, and I may wave if my hands are free. Often, we never know who it is we waved at, unless at some later time we find out. We were just being friendly and expecting that the honk came from a friend or acquaintance being neighborly. If you think back to when you were growing up, when you were in school, or when starting out in your work/career, you may recall someone who became somewhat of a mentor or role model to you. You knew them, and because of their older age, greater experience, and/or success you gave them a position of authority and great respect in your life. You always wanted to present the best of yourself to them. The mere thought of them motivated you toward excellence, … Continue reading

Bugout Apple Pie, by Sarah Latimer

Back in October, during part of the time we were away from SurvivalBlog, we were practicing our bug out scenario with a group of folks we might join in a TEOTWAWKI situation. We took our vehicle with camp stove, tent, and significant equipment, but we also took the minimal equipment that might be needed if we were to need to vacate the vehicles, too. We believe in practicing what we preach, so to speak and encourage you to do so too. There is no substitute for experience! Every time we do this, we come up with new ideas for improvement, whether it is for improved comfort, convenience, ease of transport/loading/unloading, better OPSEC, or something else. I personally believe that I have infinite opportunity for improvement and am always seeking how to do this. I just can only handle a little at a time, but I’m open to it. It truly is my desire to become better at everything that is important, and my family’s survival in an emergency (whether a small, personal emergency or a massive global one) is pretty near the top of my “life’s priority” list. (What tops the list is my own and my family’s eternal spiritual … Continue reading

Letter Re: TEOTWAWKI Preps and Christianity

Dear Mr. Latimer, After reading the article, I need to add a few points. It is well that we prepare spiritually as well as temporally for whatever calamity comes our way. Proverbs 27:12 comes to mind. One thing that must be foremost in our minds when we network with others in a church-going scenario is to look and listen before speaking. I live here in Idaho not too far from the WA state line. I am a recent arrival from the Peoples Democratic Socialist Republic of Oregon. What I saw there, I am seeing here. Make sure your Pastor, Priest, Minister, or Rabbi is NOT part of or affiliated with the FEMA Clergy Response Team. This can be done with a little sub-rosa inquiry and a few planned, well-placed and innocuous inquiries of the church members, church elders, the head honcho himself, or by reading their weekly bulletins at the service or on their website. Next, feel out how the head honcho feels about Romans 13. Is total slavish obedience to the Leviathan at all levels preached from the pulpit? If so, run the other way. Pastor Chuck Baldwin, a nationally recognized authority on Romans 13, has a small book … Continue reading

Seven Warnings to the Progressive Feminist, by J.E.

Considering we are at the precipice of the possibility for the first female, militant feminist to take control of the greatest country in the world, I thought this article appropriately timed. Feminists, who may read this, you need to consider some serious questions. Are you honestly prepared to endure the reality of the feminist ideology lived out to its fullest? What would this even look like? If this is a concept you haven’t pondered fully, would you consider listening to a well researched argument against the suicidal movement of militant feminism? Moreover, are you willing to listen without judgment rather than blowing off warnings from those who genuinely care? In this article I will spell out the worst case scenario of progressive feminism lived out to its fullest in seven corresponding warnings. Over the last several years I have worked hard to expose the lies and deception of the second, third, and now fourth wave feminists who hold men and women captive in this country with their lies. It has taken a lot of restraint to remain polite. I’ve been patient. I’ve kept my cool and taken the intellectual route. I’ve spent the last four years working diligently on a … Continue reading

What Is It That Will Really Help You Survive TEOTWAWKI?, by Peter Martin

Many articles, TV shows, movies, and personal discussions concerning how to survive TEOTWAWKI usually revolve around food, water, medical supplies, transportation, fuel, and how to defend yourself during such a time. What I am about to communicate is perhaps too religious for some and maybe not religious enough for others, but here it goes anyway, my best shot. Yes, it is important to try and be prepared materially as best you possibly can be, depending upon what your means allow you to do. Some can be more prepared than others, because they have more means to do so, and others are fortunate enough to have formed groups that are either loosely based or even formally based, which gives the group a very good means to provide the necessities for survival during a TEOTWAWKI scenario. That is all well and good. The question really is though, just what is it that will really get you through what may be a truly terrifying and/or horrific event? Food, water, medical supplies, fuel, transportation, and defensive means may address some of the things being faced, but what about the psychological and spiritual aspects being faced? Despair, depression, hopelessness, and low morale can all be … Continue reading

Giving Thanks in 2016, by Sarah Latimer

I don’t know about you, but I greatly enjoy the “Quote of the Day” section of SurvivalBlog. They often put a big smile on my face and get a “wow” response. Some people really know how to put use words to put a situation into perspective. Recently Hugh posted one such quote that was quite timely. The quote seemed so relevant to our experiences of late, with our nation’s liberals literally breaking down in tears, marching, and going so far as to turn their backs on our nation by leaving and giving up their citizenship and even some who are publicly announcing murderous intention by making social media statements that they are planning assassinations (or encouraging others to do so). It is just crazy how those who claim to want “a kinder” nation are behaving this way and tearing our nation apart through hateful speech, threats, and actions! It is appalling that our Democratic National Convention is hiring people to march and disrupt life in our cities, because they cannot tolerate the political system that they are a part of. If this were the way the Republican Party had behaved when Obama was elected, I believe they’d have demanded action. … Continue reading

The Drama is Not Over: It is Still Time to Pray and Take Action, by Sarah Latimer

Well, it has been an eventful month since I last wrote on SurvivalBlog. I decided to take my own advice and enjoy some of those Golden Moments of Silence, where I simply soaked in special moments, beauty, God’s Word, made memories with those I love, and deposited these inspirations in my soul. Since I last sat in front of my keyboard to address you, I have enjoyed fellowship with numerous friends and family, seen some spectacular sights, and experienced dramatic events, most of which were wonderful and beyond description. I have made some new “survivalist” friends and gained greater respect from some serious homesteaders who are venturing into new (and rather ancient) methods of doing things. It has been an amazing month, for the most part. However, there were some very serious moments that reminded me of the sinful world in which we live and were far from “golden”. One cannot travel or talk with many people without being subjected to or hearing firsthand accounts of serious, violent crimes. This was my experience as well. I am thankful that all of my loved ones are safe and sound, but I was reminded what a very dangerous world we live in. … Continue reading

A Post-Election Prayer Request, by JWR

I was pleased to see that the American electorate rejected Hillary Clinton’s bid to become President. Had she been elected, the damage that she would have done to the nation would have been incalculable. I encourage SurvivalBlog readers of faith to pray for the incoming Trump Administration. In particular, please focus your prayers on Godly government and small, fiscally conservative government. President-Elect Trump will need sound advice from responsible, well-seasoned men and women in business and industry. I encourage him to recruit a council of wise elders to advise his administration, as unreimbursed volunteers. This council should be drawn primarily from FAMILY-owned businesses. The following list might be a good starting point for the council: Former Congressman Ron Paul, Willie Robertson (Duck Commander CEO), Donald Schneider (Schneider National Trucking), Scott Simplot, Peter Thiel, Samuel R. Allen (Deere & Company), actor Jon Voight, Doyle Simons (Weyerhaeuser Trust), Alan Hassenfeld (Hasbro), Pastor Chuck Baldwin, Erich Pratt (Executive Director, Gun Owners of America), Benjamin F. (Tad) Edwards IV (A.G. Edwards Company), economist Ben Stein, Jim Perdue (Perdue Farms), Peter Hanson “Pete” Coors (Molson Coors Brewing Co.), Clint Eastwood, Michael H. Thaman (CEO of Owens Corning), John Walker (founder of AutoCAD), David Green (founder … Continue reading

Everyday Survival Living Overseas Among Muslims, by A.E.

I read articles and letters on this site, and other blogs and web sites, where people are prepping for survival. Oftentimes these articles and letters concentrate on hypothetical or theoretical post-TEOTWAWKI situations. My family’s and my survival experience is not theoretical. We live in an everyday survival context. I hope this article can help to enlighten some of you on prepping for everyday living and to expose some of the challenges faced across America and the world by people wishing to prep in less than ideal circumstances. I am an American, an Army veteran of foreign wars, believer in the Lord Jesus, and a missionary overseas. I woke up this morning to the sound of the imam calling out over loudspeakers, only three blocks away. He was calling his faithful out of their slumbers and to their morning prayers. Walking down the street to get started on my work day I passed numerous police checkpoints, body scanners, bag checkers and armed guards. In the country where my family and I live, the central government is extremely strong and often heavy-handed. The reason for all these security measures is that this area is 100% Muslim and they are not happy. The … Continue reading
