About Marsha

  1. Do you have a link on David Wilkerson's church? I would like to read the article about this, as I know he is a true man of God.
  2. Hi Gulf Coast Truth! I tried hay bale gardening this past summer and it worked pretty well for my tomatoes. However, my bales weren't 'seasoned' and it was a little hard trying to make the holes in the bales for the plants. If you can, buy the bales now and leave them outside for the rain and sun to soften them up a bit. Also, they dry out VERY quickly in the summer heat, at least here in south Mississippi. I had to water every day to keep my plants healthy. Marsha
  3. Hello, Ladies, Thanks for the info. Don't think I'll be using the dry ice; it's already humid and moldy enough down here already! I will be SO glad when the weather starts to cool down. Will look into the mylar bags and oxygen absorbers. Marsha
  4. Hi Katz, I'm new here, too and can definitely relate to what you are going through. I am married but my husband is NOT on board with prepping. In addition to that, the clinic I worked in closed down and I have been out of work for months now. So, what I do is everytime I buy groceries, I'll pick up a few preps. I would love to buy bulk grains and a grinder and lots of other things but right now that isn't possible. Yesterday, for example, I bought flour, yeast, and a couple of bread pans at Wal-Mart so I can start baking my own bread. I also bought matches and wax paper. Next time, I will concentrate maybe on canned meat or something else that will store well long term. A little at a time will add up quickly. And as far as feeling the need in your soul to prep, LISTEN to that...it is God's way of letting you know to prepare. Don't worry that no one else agrees with you; just do what YOU KNOW is right. Do it quietly and persistently and you will get where you need to be. Somewhere (maybe on this site), a statement was made that "When Noah built the ark, it wasn't raining"! It's possible that he felt a little crazy too, but he obeyed God and kept on building. And we know how that turned out! I'm sure his family was glad that he did listen to God! That phrase has really stuck with me and keeps me prepping; one or two small items at a time, true, but constantly moving forward. May the peace of God be with you now and in the days ahead. And, definitely stick with this site; there's not only tons of info on prepping and other things, but lots of heartfelt encouragement and support. Marsha
  5. Hi, everyone! I've been reading about using dry ice to store grain. Some sites say to put a few inches of grain in the bottom of the bucket, add dry ice, and then fill with grain. My question is this; can you eat the grain that the dry ice has actually touched? It's not toxic? And, also, what other foods could be stored long term using this method? I'm new to prepping and I have LOTS to learn. Thanks in advance; I really love this site! Marsha

    Romans 7:12-17

    Good morning, Darlene, First of all, I just want you to know what a blessing this site is. Secondly, your prayer for your son really tugged at my heart. It is very much what I have been praying for my sons. They were brought up "in the nurture and admonition of the Lord" but right now they are not living as they should. But we have this promise from our heavenly Father that if we teach them His ways, when they are old they will not depart from them. One day as I was praying (and crying) for them, the Lord spoke to my heart that as much as I love my children, He LOVES THEM EVEN MORE. I knew God loved them, but more than I did?? As obvious as this should have been to me before, it wasn't, and at that moment I was truly able to release them to our Father. I looked back over the years and saw how He has protected them. Two of my sons were in the war and one came home with bullet holes in his uniform but without a scratch on his body. There were so many times they both could have been injured or killed but he brought them home safe. Now one of them has re-joined the Army and my first response was fear and dismay. But, as I remembered the "exceeding precious promises" of the Lord, my heart and soul calmed down and I know that it is and shall be well with him and with us all. "Hitherto, He has brought us this far", He will not forsake us now. God's timing is perfect and our sons will come "home". God Bless you Marsha
  7. Hi ladies, I'm new here and I'm so glad to have found this site. Thanks for the encouraging word, Stephanie. I am a Christian who has just started prepping and not getting much encouragement from other believers I know. They seem to believe preparing for something terrible that MIGHT happen is living in fear and not trusting in the Lord. My husband (who is also a Christian) does not even want to talk about what's happening in the world right now. This has been very discouraging as I feel like they're all sleepwalking! So, I'm doing what I can and will continue to trust in my heavenly Father to lead and guide. May God bless you all, Marsha "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not unto your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path". Proverbs 3:5,6
