Let me introduce myself. First, I am an American woman who is not ashamed of her country; who knows every word of the Star-Spangled Banner and grew up saying the Pledge of Allegiance at the beginning of each school day, and yes, actually participated in Christmas plays in grade school.
At the foundation of my life is the saving grace of Jesus Christ, and I am not ashamed of proclaiming Him, either. I know that without "the protection of Divine Providence", (as it was so eloquently stated in the Declaration of Independence), I would not enjoy the privileges and freedoms that are the beacon for the rest of the world.
I am starting this blog for all women, who like me, do not want to sit on the sidelines while our country and this world goes down the tubes. It doesn't matter whether you are a Republican or a Democrat or Libertarian; whether you are a Christian or not; whether you are political or not. I am writing for all the women whose instincts tell them something is wrong....terribly wrong....and are ready to throw off the shackles of fear and claim their personal power; to overcome the paralysis of panic and dread, and take command of their lives and their circumstances.
Three years ago, I was comfortable and contented in my life. My husband and I had built a nice little home on a few acres in the country. Our small business was successful, and I thought everything was going to be smooth sailing from then on out. But you know that old saying, "If you want to make God laugh, just tell him your plans?" Well, God obviously knew a whole lot more than me what was coming down the pike!
It seemed like overnight, all sense of security in my country, my government and my future went up in smoke. My husband and I both knew something was really wrong. This country was headed down the wrong track, and the conductor was taking us there as fast as he could!
We felt heavenly promptings to re-evaluate everything in our lives....to prepare for economic hard times and radical changes in our society. And it scared the crap out of me! But instead of giving in to the suffocating fear, I made a choice to face it. I would not give up that easily in all I believed in!
After all, I was the little girl who read everything she could get her hands on about the courage of our Founding Fathers. While other girls played with Barbies, I devoured books; reading about Abigail Adams, Nathan Hale, and Ethan Allen and the Green Mountain Boys. I've always thought I was born in the wrong century, and now it's my turn to step up and fight to keep our divinely-inspired American way of life.
I want to reassure you, that following this blog, does not mean that you have to abandon your normal life---I haven't. We still work our business every day, go to church on Sundays, and enjoy time with family and friends. But my life is fuller now. And I want to share with you what I've discovered. I've learned what derivatives are; know about the Federal Reserve and Central European Banks; learned how to bake bread from wheat I ground myself; started dehydrating food, and know how to properly handle my 9 mm Glock. I now read my Bible every day, not just on Sundays.
So my goal for this blog is to begin a dialogue with the women of this country. There are many that are at the stage I was 3 years ago. Let me talk you off the cliff. And there are those who are way out in front of me. I hope you will find this blog, and educate us all.
As American women, we have overcome much in our history, and it is not in our DNA to lay down and quit. So no matter what stage you are at in coming to terms with our country's decline, together we can help each other be prepared for what is coming. I will always be honest with you and be real about who I am and what I think. No political correctness here! So I just have one question for you.... Are you ready to take this journey with me?
Romans 12:2 - "Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is --- His good, pleasing and perfect will."
