Biography of a Prepper: Lisa Bedford

lisa bedfordAlso known as the Survival Mom, Lisa Bedford has made a name for herself in the world of prepping. As a suburban wife and mother of two children, Lisa got her start as a prepper because she wanted to protect her family and their way of life after the family business was hit hard by economic troubles. Today, she is a well-known prepping blogger, author and speaker.

It was the economic collapse of 2008 and resulting loss of financial security for millions of people, including her family, that introduced Lisa to prepping. At first, she really only focused on topics that could apply to her situation, but her research eventually evolved into a blog at a time when prepping grew into a big trend.

On her blog, Lisa offers a unique female perspective on prepping. The articles are geared towards moms, helping them worry less and enjoy peaceful homes. She includes articles on survival, emergency preparedness, homeschooling, important skills, and having a balanced work-family life. Her website also offers a store, videos, podcasts, guides, and checklists.

Lisa and her website have earned widespread attention. She appeared in an article in Newsweek magazine just four months after her blog began. Her tricks and tips have also developed into a best-selling book called Survival Mom: How to Prepare Your Family for Everyday Disasters and Worst Case Scenarios. Lisa even appeared on National Geographic’s prepping show Doomsday Preppers and other national TV programs like the Today Show.

Lisa strongly believes that there’s power and peace in being prepared, and that is something that every family wants. With so much uncertainty about the future, we live in a world where one major event could rip the rug right out from under us. Millions of people are realizing that events like an economic collapse, terrorist attacks, and catastrophic natural disasters are not so unlikely anymore.
