Empower yourself by learning self-reliance & prepping skills in a community of women just like you.

Confidence and peace of mind come when you live a life of self-reliance and are prepared for the worst.

But when disaster strikes, will you know what to do?

When emotions are high and everyone is fearful, do you have the skill set required so you’re comfortable taking charge & making decisions?

Do you have a well-stocked emergency pantry and know how to cook tasty meals when the power goes out?

When the next pandemic or natural disaster forces you to shelter in place, will you be better prepared than you were this time?

Instead, imagine how confident you would feel:

  • If your family must shelter in place, you have everything you need on hand.
  • When the power goes out, you’re ready to cook a meal off-grid and comfort your kids.
  • When a wildfire is within miles of your home, your evacuation plan has you ready to go at a moment’s notice.
  • Grocery stores are empty, but you have a store of emergency food your family will enjoy eating.
  • If you have to rush out of the house in an evacuation, your emergency kits are packed and ready.

Whatever the crisis, you won’t be guessing about what to do or where to go.

When your 21st Century lifestyle has been comfortable, most women haven’t thought about being prepared.

Our grandmothers and great-grandmothers knew all about self-reliance and being prepared.

They could cook a family-pleasing meal over a fire! They knew how to grow a garden loaded with heirloom fruits and veggies.

Then, they knew how to preserve all that food for the future.

When there was an emergency, they knew they were on their own and they were ready!

You and me? We were lucky to get a few pie-baking lessons in Home Ec! Sadly, the knowledge and resilience of our grandparents weren’t genetic and very little was passed on to the next generation.

I completely understand, and that’s why I created Survival Mom Sisterhood!

Hi! I’m Lisa Bedford, The Survival Mom!

As a suburban stay-at-home mom, I rarely planned ahead and rarely gave any thought to preparing for everyday emergencies beyond having a box of band-aids and maybe a flashlight.

Then, in 2009, the unexpected happened. My husband’s business nearly went bankrupt, and I wondered how I could be more proactive and get ready for the worst-case scenario — loss of our business and our home.

Since then, I’ve pioneered a whole new lifestyle — being prepared, becoming more self-reliant, all while living a joyful and fulfilling life.

I’ve authored two books, created a blog that attracts millions of readers from around the globe, and have been interviewed by most all the major new corporations and networks.

Here’s what I’ve learned:

  • You can get prepared quickly and on a budget.
  • Prepping isn’t extreme or crazy! It’s the way our grandparents used to live. Totally normal!
  • It’s okay to take the smallest steps toward self-reliance. They all add up!
  • I could have prepared my family and home much more quickly if I hadn’t been doing this alone.

That is the Survival Mom Lifestyle, and I invite you to walk this journey with us as a member of the Survival Mom Sisterhood.

Tegan Cross
A majority of prepping info was confusing/conflicting, military in style, and geared towards men. I am a mom and just want to help protect my family!
Laurie Wilkinson
SMS has been a fantastic help for me. I thought I was a prepper. Thought I had things together and what I needed, but Lisa opens a whole new perspective on it.
Kathy O’Guinn
Thank you most of all for the group calls, the mentoring calls, and the classes. It can be overwhelming to try to progress alone. Working with other members to learn and to solve problems is enlightening and encouraging.
Brenda
Everything was disorganized and I had a lot of holes everywhere, now we're confidently at level 4 and there's now systems in place to streamline the processes, nothing is falling behind and our priorities/goals are clear and where we want to be.
Tegan
Just knowing there is a place to go to ask questions and hear from people around the country (or other countries!) and that Lisa is reachable and responds to emails.
Patricia
Total organization is where I'm at now. Also, family has been *woke* to the reason mom, wife was crazy and stocking up on things.
Kathy
Your printables are so good; they give us information and hands-on techniques for solving specific problems. I appreciate the work you put into those as well as the mini masterclasses and other classes. The group calls are encouraging and regularly provide information I need for prepping. The website provides a wealth of information including details I would not have considered on my own.
Taryn

Here’s a Sneak Peek Into the Members-Only Website

Hi! I’m Lisa Bedford, The Survival Mom!

As a suburban stay-at-home mom, I rarely planned ahead and rarely gave any thought to preparing for everyday emergencies beyond having a box of band-aids and maybe a flashlight.

Then, in 2009, the unexpected happened. My husband’s business nearly went bankrupt, and I found myself wondering how I could be more proactive and get ready for the worst case scenario — loss of our business and our home.

Here’s what I learned:

  • You can get prepared quickly and on a budget.
  • Being prepared, or prepping, isn’t extreme or crazy! It’s just the way our grandparents used to live. Totally normal!
  • I could have prepared my family and home much more quickly if I hadn’t been doing this alone.
  • You can work on preparedness and still live a life full of fun and joyful moments.

That is the Survival Mom Life, and I invite you to step up and walk this journey with us as a member of the Survival Mom Sisterhood.

As the author of the award winning book, Survival Mom, I’ve been featured worldwide as a survival expert. Here are some highlights!

My personal guarantee to you

I am personally committed to providing you with a membership experience that will bring clarity to your preparedness plans, eliminate information overload so you can focus on your priorities, and a warm community of like-minded women.

If you decide to move on, you can cancel your monthly membership at any time. If it’s within the first 30 days, I’ll refund that initial payment.

If you join using the Annual membership option and decide within the first 30 days that you’re not satisfied, you’ll be issued a full refund. After 30 days, the Annual membership is non-refundable.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, some of it is, and it’s overwhelming! It’s one of the reasons you haven’t made much progress or get stuck in indecision.

As a former Master Teacher, Lisa has created a unique experience to provide you with a clear path to follow and a way to track progress. Most of all, it’s designed for women like you and not unrealistic hard-core survivalism.

We have an onboarding process for all new members. It includes a manual that guides you through all portions of the SMS website.

Once you join, you’ll log in with your email address and your chosen password. This brings you to your Survival Mom Library where you’ll see all your resources in one place!

Remember, your membership includes a phone app so you can watch video lessons, participate in group calls, and use your membership resources no matter where you are.

Self-reliance takes all kinds of forms, and there are millions of urban and suburban homesteaders! Inside SMS, you’ll find classes on food preservation, foraging, rural living, beekeeping, gardening, and lots of other women like you who long for a more back-to-nature lifestyle no matter where they live!

Facebook plays only a minor role in the membership. We have a unique Community that is not part of Facebook at all.

When you log in to the membership area, you will be able to chat with other members, share photos, and participate in group chats.

We also have a private Facebook group that is members-only, since we know a lot of our members are active on Facebook. 

Lisa hosts a weekly Coffee With Lisa inside the private Facebook group, and those replays will be available on the SMS website.

Survival Mom Sisterhood isn’t a class. It’s a month-by-month process of learning something new and putting into practice within a supportive community.

Our members work at their own pace with the goal of making some type of progress each month.

You’ll get as much support and accountability as you want.

The best thing is that all of your membership benefits — the huge library of practical masterclasses, the printables, the video replays, the hands-on projects — they will all be there when you’re ready!

Some of our members come in not even owning a flashlight with working batteries! Others have been prepping for many years.

Either way, we’re all in this together, and you’ll find plenty of support with simple lessons and motivating activities. 

You’ll be amazed with your progress!

Nothing is more expensive than spending money in a panic. It always results in wasted money and poor decisions.

The smarter strategy is to first, know exactly what your family NEEDS (not what a random “survival expert” tells you that you need) and then begin shopping around for the best prices.

In fact, you may discover that you don’t have to buy as much as you thought you did!

When your home and family are prepared for emergencies, there’s no need to make expensive, impulse purchases when a crisis is at your doorstep

SMS membership is just little more than a dollar a day. Most households spend more than that just on a single pizza meal.

Lisa never recommends impractical or expensive preps, and all of her training keeps in mind the typical family’s budget.

Lisa has designed this membership training primarily for women, but we do have a few men who are here for the outstanding masterclasses, monthly challenge projects, the online planner, and app — and who could blame them?

All group calls are recorded and later posted in the Video Vault. You can watch them any time, including on your phone using our app!

I thought I was a prepper, but it turns out there are a LOT of things I wasn't doing! Lisa is a teacher, and it shows. She's patient and kind and answers questions quickly. The monthly classes are great! I am prepping like never before!
Kathy
