Is it really possible that I could live sustainably prepared?...
Can I afford to live in the country? Is it really possible to convert our water system to complete independence? Does God really care about where we live? Can I afford solar? How can I support my family while living in the country? I'm stuck, how can I start working toward independence?
Our newest DVD set, Sustainable Preparedness 101, is finally finished and ready to help you answer all these questions and more!
Below is the video that we did for the holiday special this last year. It describes a little bit about the new DVD set so you'll know what you are getting. This is a power packed 6-DVD set that will give you all the tools you need to start your journey today. We are so thrilled to finally be able to put this in your hands.
Sustainable Preparedness 101
This 6-DVD set covers the core skills you need to know for setting up an independent homestead as well as how to start this process right now, wherever you are and whatever your situation is.
In this much requested DVD set, we help you figure out your very first steps to becoming independent—you know, the things you can start doing right now. The journey of 1,000 mile begins with the first step, so this is incredibly important.
After connecting with hundreds of people who are transitioning to a more independent lifestyle, we’ve observed that the #1 problem which seems to keep popping up, is work. How do you make a living when moving to a new rural location? Not everyone has to move, but if you do need to move, then making a living is something you need to look at NOW. We’ve observed that those who carefully work out their occupation situation ahead of time usually fare a LOT better than those who “wing it”.
We really want you to be successful in making this transition, so we’ll be sharing some tips that I think will help you plan wisely for making a living after relocating to a country home. You’ll also learn about what to look for and what to look out for, when purchasing a piece of land or a country home. My dad shares these tips from his decades of experience with building and developing.
One of the most important features that your homestead needs, is water. You simply cannot live without it. But the vast majority of homes—even in the country—are only one utility outage away from being waterless. In this DVD set Nick shares the essential things you need to know about water systems in order to make them truly independent, so they can function even during utility outages.
And speaking of utilities, the kingpin of them all is electricity. What would you do without it? How many other systems on your homestead would fail without power? That’s why we are big advocates of renewable energy systems. And in this DVD set you’ll get a crash course in how to get started with energy independence while maintaining a comfortable modern lifestyle.
Heat is one of the most important necessities of life. And the vast majority of heating systems are dependent on utilities in order to function. All except wood heat! And in this DVD set, you’ll get a good primer on how to heat your home with wood—safely and effectively.
What about food on your homestead? You can’t forget that! And in this DVD set you’ll get an introduction to growing and preserving your own food—independently—on your homestead.
Here’s something that folks often overlook—what about health care? In this DVD set, I share from many years of experience at numerous natural health centers to help you take control of your health. You’ll learn simple natural remedies that really work for your family’s health both now, and in times of disaster. And it’s also an awesome way to be a blessing to others in need.
Finally, Sustainable Preparedness 101 covers “What” a sustainably prepared lifestyle looks like and “Why” it’s so important—from a Christian perspective.
You will learn the biblical evidence for why country living and sustainable preparedness are essential in these last days. This was what really convinced us to take the plunge and implement these things in our lives.
An Off Grid Nurse
...We have decided to donate 10% of the profits from this DVD to benefit a dear friend of ours who is working in Palawan! She has dedicated her life to serving the people of the mountains as a remote nurse. Seriously, this is the sort of stuff you read in mission story books as a kid! Rugged, outdoor, roughing-it kind of lifestyle, and all for the people of Palawan. Her name is Justina Thomas and here is a little about her:
