Unless the Lord guards the city,
The watchman keeps awake in vain.

Truths to chew on ...

"Yet even now", declares the Lord, "return to me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning; and rend your hearts and not your garments."
Return to the Lord your God, for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love; and he relents over disaster. Who knows whether he will not turn and relent, and leave a blessing behind him, a grain offering and a drink offering for the Lord your God?
Blow the trumpet in Zion; consecrate a fast; call a solemn assembly; gather the people. Consecrate the congregation; assemble the elders; gather the children, even nursing infants. Let the bridegroom leave his room, and the bride her chamber
Between the vestibule and the alter let the priests, the ministers of the Lord, weep and say "Spare your people, O Lord, and make not your heritage a reproach, a byword among the nations." Thy should they say among the peoples, "Where is their God?"

Joel 2:12-17

By faith Noah, having been warned by God of things not yet seen, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house, by which he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness which is according to faith.
Heb 11:7

See that you do not refuse Him who speaks. For if they did not escape, those who refused him that spoke on earth, much more we shall not escape if we turn away from Him who speaks from Heaven, whose voice then shook the earth; but now He has promised, saying, "Yet once more I will not only shake the earth, but also the heavens." And this word, "Yet once more," signifies the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that have been made, so that the things which cannot be shaken may remain. Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear, for also, "Our God is a consuming fire."
Heb 12:25-29

The floods have lifted up, O Jehovah, the floods have lifted up their voices; the floods lift up their waves. Jehovah on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, than the mighty waves of the sea.
Ps 93:3-4

Why Some Disasters?

'Why has the LORD pronounced all this great disaster against us? Or what is our iniquity? Or what is our sin that we have committed against the LORD our God?'
11 then you shall say to them, 'Because your fathers have forsaken Me,' says the LORD; 'they have walked after other gods and have served them and worshiped them, and have forsaken Me and not kept My law.
12 And you have done worse than your fathers, for behold, each one follows the dictates of his own evil heart, so that no one listens to Me.
Jeremiah 16:10b-12

    My wife Crystal and I, and our Simpler Life staff, Miriam, Bernie, Gino, Kathy, Jaclen, Enrique, Lette, Frank, Ryan, and Dani welcome you to our website.

    Simpler Life was "birthed" in 1979 just before I lost my job due to an injury. Months before, Crystal and I had put away a years food supply for both of us. To our great surprise we were using that supply and continued to use it for over a year as I was recovering. What a blessing! Crystal made most of our meals from scratch and we enjoyed hearty, inexpensive, nutritionally packed dishes.

    During my jobless days, after much study, prayer, and counsel, I became convinced that America was headed for difficult days...a conviction which still stands. Our vision and burden formed - to help prepare people for the difficult days ahead.

    As we began, I taught classes on self-sufficiency, preparedness, and food storage, while Crystal was teaching families to prepare and use their storage foods.

    In the mid 1980's with the increase of earthquakes, hurricanes, and other disasters, our business expanded beyond food to a full line of "people products" including water, medical, shelter, and custom emergency kits.

    We've had the privilege of supplying thousands of America's Businesses, Schools, Cities, Counties, States, Hospitals, and Relief Agencies. We also specialize in equipping employees with home and vehicle kits and supplies.

    From our 30 years of serving, here's what we can offer you:
    · Trust, Care & Singleness of Heart - this is our only thrust
    · Long term relationship & a Servant's Heart.
    · Innovative Kits & Supplies.
    · Excellent Workmanship & Value.
