If you are just hearing about prepping, you may be hearing a lot of fear. And I want to assure you that that is not necessary. I was born into a family that lived prepared. Sometimes, being prepared can bring reassurance.
Being prepared means that you can be confident in the actions that you have taken to keep your family safe and healthy in adverse situations. You are the captain of your ship. You are in control of your fate to a large part. Every step you take to help your family gives you confidence that things will be better and safer for you all.
