Suburban Homesteading : working and living from a house with its land, considered as a whole located in a suburb.
Self Reliance Strategies is a grass-roots, faith-driven, company founded by preparedness-minded Patriots whose mission is to provide affordable products and simple strategies to help Americans be prepared through self reliance. Originally started as a ministry, our company puts a reliance in God first as it is through our faith we execute strategies to be less dependent on supply chains and more dependent on ourselves. Developed as a direct result to the current uncertain economy and unstable society, Self Reliance Strategies is prepared to stand up for faith, freedom and hard-working, simple living.
My name is Cheri Egger. My husband John and I, both originally from the rural Midwest, were taught by virtue to live a simple, self-reliant life. We spent the first 20 years of our lives on and around farms raising vegetables, cows, goats, chickens and hogs and attending 4H fairs and camps. Our families are “Salt of the Earth” people; several generations of living off the land and making a dollar go a long way. We just assumed everyone lived that way until we moved away and started running the rat race with everyone else.
Fast forward several years, and as our society continued to turn further away from God it became clear to us that simple living was coming whether forced or by choice. We prayed and put our trust in the Lord to guide us and He spoke to us through Philippians 2:13, “ for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure. ” He revealed His plan for us and immediately we dedicated ourselves to working the skills we learned from our past and re-learning the skills we had lost by transforming our home into a homestead and the vision to market it as a ministry for preparing others by teaching the skills of Suburban Homesteading. We are just hard working, Conservative, God-fearing Americans who have a vision to live simple and teach others preparedness through self reliance.
Our objective is to provide products and information around certain key strategies which will help even those locked into a suburban home & yard situation become more self-reliant and prepared for crises of various kinds. Our aim is to create a series of subdomain websites off of our “hub” site ( SelfRelianceStrategies.com ), where each of those subdomain sites will focus on one and ONLY one key strategy, as this subdomain site focuses solely on seeds . When you go to one of our focused subdomain sites, the topic you’re looking for is ALL that you’ll find on that site. As time goes on we will continue to add related articles, products and information to help you implement your own strategy.
We keep an amazingly positive attitude through our faith in the Lord, knowing that we are self-reliant spiritually and physically.
