Overview

“Lisa Bedford’s Survival Mom is a much needed resource of practical preparedness and survival knowledge that anybody (even ‘Survival Dads’) will find an indispensable addition to their self-reliance library!” — Survivalist Magazine

When a global pandemic makes you feel out of control, anxious, and unprepared, let the "Survival Mom," Lisa Bedford, show how you can put plans into place to give you peace of mind and keep your family safe. 

Undaunted by the prospect of TEOTWAWKI (The End of the World as We Know It) Lisa Bedford tackles every what-if and worst-case scenario head-on, offering practical and upbeat advice on how to prepare your family for whatever might come your way.

From a how to prepare food storage so that we can quarantine at home, to preparing for days without electricity, or an unexpected job loss, or chaos after a natural disaster, Survival Mom provides everything you need to become self-reliant and establish plans for your family, including:

•       preparing the home for a natural disaster

·        everything you need to know about food storage

•       alternative sources of energy in a power’s-out situation

·        the ins and outs of sanitation

·        keeping your family safe and secure

Lisa started her blog (survivalmom.com) when she realized that all the literature on survival and preparedness was written by men, for men. Long a teacher and trainer, she took it upon herself to be the missing voice for the many moms out there and has quickly become an expert in the subject of survival, speaking around the nation about disaster preparedness.

Whether you’re a full-fledged “prepper” or just getting started, Lisa’s real-life stories and customizable forms and checklists along with an “you can do it” attitude, Survival Mom replaces paranoia and panic with the peace of knowing YOU have the power to keep your loved ones safe and secure.
