A Woman's Perspective On The Times We Live In

Two Inches of Metal That Could Save Your Life -- It Only Takes A Spark!


     I don't know about you, but as a woman, starting a fire just doesn't come naturally.  It just wasn't part of our training as little girls.  But if TEOTWAWKI happens, this is a skill that could literally save our lives.  So with the help of my survival-knowledgeable husband, I was determined to find an easy method that would enable me to start a fire on my own.  And what my video shows you is just how easy it is to do with a couple of household items and the right tool.
     So now you don't need to be a Boy Scout to survive in a critical situation.  All you need is a few cotton balls, some vaseline and an Exotac Nanostriker.  The design of this all-in-one striker makes it perfect for your BOB, purse or camping gear.  All you do is unscrew the self-contained tool and scrape the ferrocerium rod (which is replaceable) with the tungsten carbide striker, producing a spark that will quickly light your vaseline-coated cotton ball.  You'll soon have a flame on which to build a substantial fire.  The lightweight body of this tiny (a mere 4"), efficient tool has the capability of producing more than 1000 fire-starting strikes!
     So you need never worry about how you will cook food or keep warm if the SHTF.  You will be able to independently and proficiently take care of yourself.  And that's something any woman can be proud of!

I Corinthians 3:13     "....their work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light.  It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each person's work."

  1. I just found your blog through survivalblog, and I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed reading back through some of your posts. Keep it up! It's good to hear from another preparing conservative Christian woman!

    2. Yes, it is. I hope that there are many more of us out there, just keeping their prepping to themselves. I wish our churches would take a more active approach to warning more people of the situations we all are likely to face, and provide a biblical view of preparedness. My husband tells me that the men seem to understand and talk more about it, but the ladies I know, kind of talk around it rather than talking directly about prepping.

    3. I am extremely lucky. I belong to a class at my church in which we regularly talk about current events and we discuss how it all applies to prophecy and Scripture. Some of the most outspoken and knowledgeable are women!

  2. Some of the simplest things are the most important, and that demonstration made more sense to me than a full page of instructions. Thank you and God bless.
