4 Ways to be Prepared for any Crisis, Big or Smalll

4 Ways to be Prepared for any Crisis, Big or Smalll

My friend, Susy, told me an interesting fact about astronauts. “They don’t prepare for disaster. They prepare for multiple disasters all happening at the same time.” I bet for many of you, that is how the last few months have felt. It wasn’t just fear of a pandemic....

Recently, I received a phone call which lead me rushing to get on a plane in less than thirty minutes. I was so frazzled from this unexpected family crisis, I couldn’t even think of what to put in my carry on bag. Which later led to a Target trip of $300 dollars to provide what I needed for a unplanned week on the other side of the country.

I wish I would have read Ready For Anything before this so that Kathi’s wisdom could have helped prepare me practically for what was coming. I now have a hygiene bag with some basic items that is ready to go if an emergency comes up again.

Kathi’s relatable writing and her humor sprinkled throughout will make you feel like your big sister is helping you prepare for things you may never have thought about before. Kathi helped me see how to be wise, not worried, with all the potential unexpected things life can bring.
