Trying to find my place in this world

Have you ever felt lost and alone? Not sure what your purpose on this earth is anymore? Like you should be doing more than simply surviving day to day? Welcome to my world! I'm 64 years old and I shouldn't be feeling so lost. Oh, I'm not lost in the sense some people may think of it. I'm secure in my relationship with God and I know that He is there with me every single breath that I breathe and every single step that I take (or don't take). I mean in the sense of "why am I even still on this earth?". I just don't always feel like I have a purpose and a place. Know what I mean? I used to have a purpose and a place. I was totally at peace with my life and filled with over abundant joy and pea

What is an INCH bag?

Learn something new every day! Wow! I have just discovered something new. I had never heard of an INCH bag until today. Have you heard of one? Can you imagine seeing a bag that is only one inch in size? Me either, although I suppose there could be such a thing out there, somewhere. Apparently, in this case, INCH is an acronym that stands for I Am Never Coming Home. Thus, the INCH bag. So, apparently, my BOB (Bug Out Bag) is actually an INCH bag. Who knew? I sure didn't! I was just preparing for the worst case in which I would have to bug out and live off the land. Ever since I started prepping my BOB I have had the mindset that it would be for bugging out with the knowledge th

It's time to wake up

And stay awake! Is it time that we should wake up? I say YES! Take a moment and look at the world around you, look at the world at large. What do you see? What do you see when you really stop, take a moment, and look? Only you can answer that question for yourself. What do I see? I see a world that's falling apart; crumbling, actually. A world without God. He's been taken out of the places where we need Him most. It didn't happen overnight, it's been happening for years. And, we, His people have been sleeping and let this happen! How could we? How could we sleep when He needed us to be awake? I say it's time that we WAKE UP! Just like the disciples kept falling asleep in the Garden of Gethse

Prepper Overload

What is it? What is prepper overload? Is being overloaded the same as being overwhelmed? Some would say yes they are. But, the way I see it they are two different things. I've experienced both. Being overwhelmed or overloaded can happen to any of us, for a multitude of reasons. Either can happen within our daily lives and routines. We reach a point that we either feel like we are going to explode, or we want to completely shut down. Thus, proving Newton's Third Law of Motion: for each action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Is the opposite of this true? For every non-action is there no reaction? Let's find out. Being overwhelmed A person can become overwhelmed by the amount of respon

It's not all about dehydrating

There's more to food storage than just dehydrating So, you're not into dehydrating. That's okay. Not everyone's into dehydrating. I know that, and I understand. But don't despair. You can build your long term food storage without owning or using a dehydrator! I know I've been focused on dehydrating a lot lately. That's because that's what works really good for me and my family. But, that's not the case for everyone. Some simply don't have the time or energy that it takes to dehydrate food. Others don't have the resources to do so. One of the reasons I started up the Christian Prepper Gal YouTube channel is so that I can focus on other types of articles here. Besides, it really is a lot easi

Hear ye! Hear ye!

Christian Prepper Gal now has her own YouTube channel I am so pleased to announce that Christian Prepper Gal now has her (my) own YouTube channel!! I just want to shout it out to the world!! (Thus the photo on the left, lol) I starred in, filmed, produced, and edited my very first video ever! You can see it right now on YouTube! Please don't make fun of me, I'm a youtuber in training. Even if you don't care about learning how to dehydrate frozen broccoli, please take a gander on over to my new YouTube channel and check out my creation. It isn't very far away, just click on the link below to get there. I hope you will take a moment to check it out. The video is only nine minutes long. I've ad

A quick update

It's only Tuesday and it's already been a busy week! This week I am trying something completely new. I'm actually creating a vlog for YouTube! I've been thinking about it for a few weeks now. Knowing it would be easier to show you my dehydrating experiments/experiences than to write about them. I've thought about how much more helpful it would be for you to see how to do it rather than read about it. Around two weeks ago I received an order from Amazon which included a selfie stick/tripod for my cell phone. I've been thinking about doing a video pretty constantly since that arrival. So, I went to YouTube and set up a channel for Christian Prepper Gal. I researched some video editors to use,

Mac 'n Cheese MREs

Making my dehydrated mac 'n cheese into MREs Finally! I finally got the time to put together the boxed mac 'n cheese that I dehydrated a couple of weeks ago. It's a good thing I stored the dehydrated macaroni in a zip lock baggie in a dark dry place (my kitchen cupboard). I sure didn't plan on it taking this long to get to putting them together in an MRE. The picture to the left shows the dehydrated macaroni pasta in open vacuum sealer bags ready to put everything together. I used two boxes of mac 'n cheese which is divided into four individual portions. These MREs will be used as a complete meal, not a side dish. You will also see the cheese mixture (2 packs equal almost 2/3 cup) and nonfat

How to dehydrate food video links

Dehydrating food for long term food storage and/or homemade MREs These are links to a few of the YouTube videos I've watched that helped me learn how to dehydrate food for long term food storage. I thought by sharing them with you I would save you the trouble of weeding through the hundreds of videos to find some very basic videos to start with. I most likely will add to these from time to time as I try some new ideas and find some that I think others may want to try. Who knows, I may be adding my own videos in the fairly near future! These videos will give you an idea of where to start and how to dehydrate food, along with a couple on making meals with your dehydrated food. One word of caut

There's more to life than prepping

Feeling overwhelmed? Sometimes preppers tend to go overboard and only concentrate on one thing; prepping. Especially new preppers. It's actually pretty easy to get caught up in the world of prepping. But, what good are we doing to ourselves if we are concentrating so much on prepping that we aren't living our normal daily lives? Knowing that we are not the only ones who have ever felt overwhelmed with our prepping is helpful. I just recently experienced this myself. I was so busy with getting this blog site up and running, writing articles for it, and sharing my experiences with my newfound skill of dehydrating food for long term storage with you all that I became overwhelmed. (Whew! That wa

What exactly is bushcraft?

Why you need to know! According to Wikipedia, "Bushcraft is a popular term for wilderness survival skills... Bushcraft is about thriving in the natural environment, and the acquisition of the skills and knowledge to do so. Bushcraft skills include firecraft, tracking, hunting, fishing, shelter-building, navigation by natural means, the use of tools such as knives and axes, foraging, water sourcing, hand-carving wood, container construction from natural materials, and rope and twine-making, among others." The term "buschraft" actually originated in Australia where they refer to their wilderness as bush. When you break it down, bush (meaning wilderness in the U.S.) and craft (meaning trade or
