Some of the most helpful tips come from my readers via their comments. The Survival Mom community is open to everyone but please keep these simple guidelines in mind when leaving a comment.

  • Be polite. Insulting and/or personal remarks will be cheerfully deleted.
  • Respect other peoples opinions. We can all learn from each other even when there are disagreements.
  • No profanity or offensive remarks. Sorry, but all comments have to be approved and these won’t see the light of day.
  • I reserve the right to edit or delete remarks as I see fit.
  • Remember that once your comment has been approved and posted, it’s out there for everyone to see. Don’t post personal information if you want it to remain personal.
  • Spam is not allowed. This includes generic comments with a link to your business website. The comment section is not intended to provide free advertisement. If you want to become an advertiser, send me an email.
  • Religious attacks don’t stand a chance of being posted. This blog is secular but readers have every right to include comments about their faith without being mocked by unbelievers or those of another faith.
  • Please don’t be shy! If you have a suggestion, a tip, encouragement, you have my personal invitation to share it!

  1. My friend just found out just an hour ago, that her house has been condemned due to flooding? Do you have any helpful information or resources I can share with her? I am going to share your page with her, as well as on Facebook. I just want to find out how to help her feel supported in her time of need. Any help will be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much!

    1. Lauren, I’m assuming her house flooded due to some sort of flooding situation that FEMA would be involved with. If that’s the case, she needs to be in touch with FEMA. They may allow her to make repairs and bring it up to standards in order to return to her home. If she needs financial help, maybe churches and charitable organizations can help her with that. Flooding is a really, really devastating event and it can take a few years for an individual, business, or town to recover. I wish her the best of luck with this.

  2. HELP! I can clearly see the way the world is going, riots everywhere, weather issues, etc. and as hard as I try to stock up on essentials, I have an extremely verbal husband who’s fault finding about the “insanity” of stocking up on anything and says it’s all a hype. We are an older couple on our own, no family to speak of, no one to help if we need it. I’ve put back a three month supply of goods, but recently found out husband has been hitting the supplies and using them. Do you have ANY recommendations?

    1. Hi Cherie! We definitely are living in uncertain times, and millions of us feel very unsettled. You mention that your husband is very vocal in his disapproval of your prepping. It may be due to him also feeling afraid, too, but instead of being proactive and preparing, his way of dealing with this is denial and anger — similar to the stages of grief.

      My recommendations are for you to continue to quietly prep as you can and preserve the relationship you have with your husband. You’ve been together a long time, it appears, and whatever is to come, both good and bad, you will need each other. Does he value frugality and may be concerned about finances? If so, maybe you could determine the dollar value of your preps so far, and let him know that that $$ amount is money you WON’T have to worry about spending in a worst-case scenario. As well, where the virus is concerned, those preps help you to stay at home with everything you need right at hand and no worries about trips to the grocery store, virus outbreaks, etc.

      Let me know how you’re doing! 🙂

    Hello Lisa,
    Merry Christmas
    I have been enjoying your SMS ADVENT CALENDAR. I set a timer for each day to remnd me to open your calendar
    My though, idea or suggestion is to include the number of the date SOMEWHERE in the calendar information for that particlar day. For example, on December 5th, at the top or bottom of your suggested activity, cleverly… or not so cleverly… include the date number. This makes it easier to return again again to the calendar and to know where we left off and what is still to do❣️
    It would be nice if we had an email address for you, at which to reach you.
    On the road again,
    Barbara Lukehart
