    Brought to you by PREPARE MAGAZINE - Pick up your FREE Digital Subscription HERE

    I had a great time getting to meet Abby personally when I persuaded her to come and teach at one of our local Preparedness Meetings.  Her style of teaching was so 'hands on' even for a classroom setting that everyone walked away learning so much - and she has so much MORE to share!  

    Listen to this episode and get in contact with Abby to learn even more of what the forest provides for us!

    Abby Artemisia is a botanist, herbalist, and professional forager living in the small community at the base of Mt. Mitchell in the Blue Ridge Mountains. She was raised and received her botany degree in Ohio. She has worked on organic farms across the country, including the west coast, where she learned about plant medicine and spirituality from Native Americans. She became a mom and started her own herbal tea company and an apprenticeship in herbalism. Now she teaches about edible and medicinal plants and mushrooms while foraging as much as possible. Her mission is to inspire nature (re)connection and health empowerment.

    The Back to Basics Kitchen: How to transition your kitchen to real, whole foods.

    in Cooking

    Brought to you by:  Millers Grain House

    It dawned on me the other day that for years I've been teaching back to basics cooking, real food recipes and not once did I ever consider the beginning of someone's journey.  

    Transitioning your 'typical' convenience kitchen to a back to basics, whole food kitchen really does have a starting point and some simple steps along the way.  Here are the points that I'll cover in this episode:

    Start with just ONE item first!
    Read Labels
    Buy Ingredients Only
    Learn to salvage mistakes
    Prepare for the dishes
    Learn how to create your own make-ahead secret weapons
    Stock your pantry and plan by what's on hand
    Play with your food!  

    Remember, just because you may not have been gifted with the domestic gene or raised by Betty Crocker - You can do this! If I can, anyone can!

    Best Blessings!

    Does God Call us to Prepare?

    I am so glad to have as my guest one of our Distinguished Contributing Authors, Jason Hunt !

    As if the title wasn't warning enough, we are going to talk about our Faith and how we believe God does call us to Prepare and what is lacking in the denominational church when it comes to helping others hear that call to prepare.

    Jason Hunt is the owner of Campcraft, LLC a survival outfitter and outdoor ministry located in Kentucky where he leads classes in wilderness survival, preparedness and wilderness medicine. He is also an instructor at The Pathfinder School and television host for both “Pathfinder TV” and “Campcraft with Jason Hunt”. You can learn more by visiting his website at www.campcraft.us

    Jason grew up in the outdoors of Southern Indiana engaging almost daily in what nature provided as a playground, but it wasn't until after a ten year stint as a pastor that he felt God call him back into the woods for what would be perhaps the greatest adventure of his life. Jason first received his training in survival from civilian and military experts by way of his martial arts experience which spans thirty years. Jason is the author of The End Times Christian and is host of the weekly television series Campcraft airing in Louisville, Kentucky.

    I am so glad to have as my guest one of our Distinguished Contributing Authors & Friend, Janet Liebsh!

    Bill and Janet litterally wrote the book on the vastness of being prepared.  It's not a novel or fluff - this is a book chock full of easy reference scenarios. You may find yourself faced with a tense situation and need the cool, simple steps to help you focus.  "IT'S A DISASTER! ...and what are YOU gonna do about it?" is my favorite 'go-to' reference book.

    Bill & Janet Liebsch are the founders of FedHealth, a publishing and marketing company formed in 1999 to help the public focus on preparedness and health-related issues. We also are the authors and publishers of "IT'S A DISASTER! ...and what are YOU gonna do about it?" and are dedicated to developing programs that primarily benefit First Responders, schools and volunteers.
