Candles are a big part of emergency preparedness

Preparedness is something that I firmly believe should be practiced in every single household.

But you don’t have to have a year’s worth of food, or worry that the sky is falling! Just take a few simple steps to get your family prepared for a few things that MIGHT happen.

What if a storm knocked out power in your area? Would you be in the dark, or do you have backup candles, flashlights, and lanterns?

What if you lost your job? Do you have enough nutritious food in your pantry to last you for a short time of limited income?

What if there was a hurricane headed your way? Would you be with the others, scrambling to get whatever food you could grab from the store at the last minute?

Emergency preparedness comes in many different levels. You don’t have to be a full-blown “prepper” (which usually congers up images of tin-foil hat wearing people who always think the sky is falling) to practice a little bit of preparedness.

I’m just talking stocking up a little on the basics! Get some emergency candles, stock up your pantry so you have a few week’s worth of food, and have some water stored.

If you’re overwhelmed and would like some help in getting your family prepared, I have lots of free resources for you!

I also have an Emergency Preparedness Bundle that I’ve put together. It has 3 valuable resources to get your family started in your preparedness journey. Go check it out today!
