From the creator of TheSurvivalMom.com comes this first-of-its-kind guidebook for all the “prepper” moms keen to increase their family's level of preparedness for emergencies and crises of all shapes and sizes. Publisher’s Weekly calls Lisa Bedford’s Survival Mom an “impressively comprehensive manual,” saying, “suburban mom Bedford helps readers learn about, prepare for, and respond to all manner of disasters. . . . From 'Instant Survival Tip' sidebars to a list of 'Lessons from the Great Depression'. . . Bedford's matter-of-fact yet supportive tone will keep the willies at bay.”

Review:

“In this impressively comprehensive manual, suburban mom Bedford helps readers learn about, prepare for, and respond to all manner of disasters...Bedford’s matter-of-fact yet supportive tone will keep the willies at bay.” (Publishers Weekly)

“Given the recent prevalence of floods, tornadoes, and power outages, this book comes at a good time. Bedford… discusses how to handle emergencies, from purifying water and storing food to making lists of financial records and establishing a safe room. [R]eaders… would do well to prepare.” (Library Journal)

“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!” (Ed Corcoran, Editor, Survivalist Magazine)

“Lisa Bedford has given every family an upbeat and useful step-by-step guide to getting through these alarming times. Hurrah for Survival Mom.” (Lew Rockwell, editor, lewrockwell.com)

“This ‘stockpiled guide’ to self-sufficiency emergency preparedness is a wealth of information for both the novice and seasoned ‘survival mom’!” (Roxanne L. Griswold, Co-Owner, Ready Made Resources/Founder, Ready Made Woman Blog + No Candidate)

“Well-referenced, with fresh insights, Survival Mom is funny and well-written.” (Don Aslett, author of Is There Life After Housework?)

“Lisa Bedford’s book, like her blog, is full of up-to-date, useful information from reputable sources. Survival Mom is a good read, and has a place in any prepper/survivalist library.” (Leon Pantenburg, author of survivalcommonsense.com)

“Lisa Bedford explains preparedness not just as a long term goal for the future, but as an everyday lifestyle for today. This manual is a great read for anyone concerned about their own well-being and security, and that of their loved ones.” (Paul M. Munsen, President, Sun Ovens International)

“Lisa Bedford has written an outstanding book! Survival Mom is chock full of valuable tips and perspectives that had never crossed my mind, showing me how valuable the female perspective is when it comes to prepping and survival! This book is a keeper!” (Matthew Stein, author of When Disaster Strikes: A Comprehensive Guide to Emergency Planning and Crisis Survival)

“After you become a mom, your head often swims with ‘what-ifs.’ But you can ease your mind with a little preparation, says Lisa Bedford, blogger and author of Survival Mom : How to Prepare Your Family for Everyday Disasters and Worst-Case Scenarios.” (USA Weekend)

From the Back Cover:

Everything You Need to Know to Keep Your Family Safe and Secure—No Matter What

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 advice on how to prepare your family for whatever might come your way. From a few days without electricity to an unexpected job loss or total chaos after the destruction of a tornado, Survival Mom provides everything you need to become self-reliant and establish plans for your family, including:

  • preparing the home for a natural disaster
  • alternative sources of energy in a power's-out situation
  • everything you need to know about food storage
  • personal protection (do I really need to learn how to shoot a gun?)

Deep inside every mom is a Survival Mom whose passion for her family drives her to make the best of the present and prepare for the future. So tap into your Mama Grizzly instincts and channel your worries into action. Whether you're a full-fledged "prepper" or just getting started, with real-life stories and customizable forms and checklists along with Lisa's "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.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 203 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. The last ten years have done quantifiable damage to Americans sense of security, both physical and economic. From the ravages of Hurricane Katrina to the collapse of the housing market, the last decade has been a relentless assault on our sense of invulnerability and insulation from natural and financial disasters. In response to this, hundreds of thousands of ordinary Americans have proudly become preppers. Preppers are a community and a movement; they are mostly suburbanites who are taking control of their uncertain fate by taking whatever precautions are necessary to make sure their families survive the hazards to which we re all exposed. In an article last year, Newsweek called this movement Survivalism Lite. Among others it featured Lisa Bedford, aka The Survival Mom. Lisa started her blog in June 2009 when she realized that all the literature on this kind of preparation was written by men for men. There was nothing that spoke to her inherent Mama Grizzly need to protect her family. Long a teacher and trainer, she took it upon herself to be the missing voice for the many moms out there. This book will become the go-to manual for moms who know that the well-being of their brood relies on them. With charts, checklists, and even recipes, Lisa provides all you need to know about food storage, water and sanitation, fuel and energy, medical preparedness, communication protocols and more. But Lisa Bedford refuses to let this be a scary book. With her infectious personality and you can do it attitude infused on every page, she allows us to see that being proactive in the face of uncertainty isn t paranoid. It s practical and necessary.
