Our nation reels from news reports of hurricanes, earthquakes, skyrocketing unemployment and increasing violence in the Middle East. Where does this overwhelmed mother, who understands that the well being of her beloved family depends upon being prepared in the face any unexpected calamity, turn for advice?
Well, Survival Mom How to Prepare your Family for Everyday Disasters and Worst Case Scenarios, written by Lisa Bedford may prove the perfect resource for her, and other beginners. Lisas transition from Suburban Mom to Survival Mom encompassed a lifetime. Her journey found it roots in reading survival tales from her Nanas Readers Digest magazines.

It is designed as a go-to manual for moms seeking to provide for their families security in these uncertain times.
