Mom with a PREP was started with a single goal in mind: create a valuable resource for people who are dedicated to living a prepared life. Prepared in food, supplies, and deed.
No, we’re not weird government conspiracy people. We’re also not stockpiling a bunker to wait out some doomsday scenario. Oh, and we don’t have an ammo depot in our basement.
We simply believe that preparedness is good old-fashioned common sense. Preparedness begins at home, preparing for everyday life.
Furthermore, the more prepared you are for your day to day living, the more prepared you are when the big emergencies come your way.
Whether you’re trying to stock your pantry or build a preparedness library, we’re committed to being your number one source for PREParedness information.
Want to learn how we garden? We share all of the knowledge we have. Interested in homesteading and animal husbandry? We’ll help all that we can! How about food preservation and storage? Here are our best tips. Want to know how to survive when there’s no doctor around? Check out our book list.
Whatever brought you to our site, we hope that you can find it here.
Here’s a little secret: Preparedness isn’t just practical. It’s fun. There’s a good feeling knowing that you can fend for yourself and your family if need be.
We love to hear from our readers. Drop us an email (or even call us!) if you have any questions or tips.
And don’t forget to sign up for our email newsletter so you can stay up to day on everything that’s happening at Mom with a PREP.
Good luck and thank you for taking this PREParedness journey with us!
I'm Denali and I believe that being prepared is essential for a worry-free life. When you're prepared you can forget about "what if" and focus on more important things in life.
I ditched the city life to move to a farm when I married my husband. Living in the country has taught me a lot of valuable lessons that I don't think I could've learned anywhere else.
Learning and sharing valuable life lessons with others is something I'm passionate about.
I’m Virginia Specht, the Chief Editor of Mom with a Prep. I’m passionate about the prepper lifestyle and have been for more than 20 years. My husband says I was a prepper before it was cool. And before it was “crazy.” Back in my day (am I really saying that?), being prepared was just something that everyone did as routine.
I learned my first prepping at my grandmother’s kitchen table and in her pantry. I’ll never forget the joy and beauty of putting a bumper crop of tomatoes by (putting food by is what my grandmother called canning).
My prepper education continued with my grandfather, who taught me how to hunt and dress game.
I love my job here at Mom with a Prep and can’t imagine anything else I’d rather be doing.
Public Relations Manager
My name is Alberta Evans and I handle public relations at Mom with a Prep.
Unlike most of my colleagues, I’m a city girl. I think growing up, I never even heard of canning food. And gardening? Wait….vegetables come from the ground? Well I’ve learned a lot since I moved out to the country with my husband and his family, and I couldn’t be happier.
I love the country life and am now a bona fide honorary country girl at heart.
I’m Christine Amar, and my parents say I’m the youngest prepper they know. I’m not sure about that, but the fact is, prepping is fun and it feels good to know I’m prepared for anything that could go wrong.
To me, prepping isn’t just about being prepared for the worst case scenario. Prepping is a common sense cause and it’s great to be a part of it here at Mom with a Prep.
When I’m not working (and prepping), I spend time with my large extended family and my two Maine Coon cats, Coco and Omar.
Social Media Manager
I’m Linda and I have every prepper mom’s dream job: spending time all day finding and sharing cool prepper stuff on Pinterest, Instagram, and Facebook.
When I’m not busy with social media duties, I also enjoy writing a piece here and there.
I live the prepper life on a farm with my husband, two teenagers, a dozen laying hens, two goats, and our horses.
