Being Prepared is fun!
You’re here because you are interested in preparedness and self-reliance.
I know you’re not the doomsday prepper type, though. You’re interested in being prepared for today, and next week, and next year. Because there is just so much that needs to get done! Kids – work – school – healthy meals– family time – husband time – YOU time .
Not to mention planning for the BIG emergencies. Thinking about being prepared for everything makes you scared! Where should you even start?
RELAX…you’ve found the place for reliable information.
It could be that you live in the Pacific NW and you’re concerned about “the big” earthquake that’s forecast. Maybe you live in the Midwest and tornadoes are a reality for you or you’re on the East Coast and hurricane season is approaching.

What’s up with that happy 50’s lady?
Meet Millie. The year is 1952. Millie is in her 40’s now and she’s been through a lot. The Great Depression happened when she was newly married.
Boy there were struggles then! Millie became the master of feeding her kids on a dime and gardening – you didn’t survive without a garden and skills to preserve your harvest.
The 40’s brought WWII, more shortages but also a chance to work again. And work hard! That garden becomes even more important. Millie learns to make it herself and save. She looks for ways to be safe in a crazy world!
And now it’s 1952. After all the things she’s seen – there is a reason to smile! Because if Millie can survive those crazy days, she can survive anything.
All it takes for YOU to survive and thrive TODAY is a personalized plan, the self-reliance skills to achieve it, and the right kind of kit.
Let’s get prepared together!
PreparednessMama is Shelle Wells – busy mom, wife, preparedness enthusiast and blogger. I gave up my (boring) bookkeeping job for something better. I like family history (when I have the time), action movies (which I should give up for family history), canning and preserving food, and gardening- I dream about growing things! I’ve recently traded my Garden Zone 8b in the Pacific Northwest for one in Central Texas. I’m passionate about my family and my church (I’m a Mormon!) and about spreading the mainstream preparedness message (there are no zombies here).
This website began, with my good friend Tyra Baird, during National Preparedness Month in September 2012. We started with the 30 Day Preparedness Challenge. Tyra retired at the end of 2013 to focus on her fantastic family.
Now I bring you easy to do, preparedness skills, food storage and gardening tips at least three times a week.
I hope you will use this site as a resource. PreparednessMama – helping you take the scared out of being prepared.
Just do one thing today to be better prepared – for YOUR life.
