Off The Grid host Bill Heid talks to popular blogger Lisa Bedford – also known as The Survival Mom . Bill and Lisa discuss survival and self-reliance from an often-overlooked angle: maintaining the will to survive. That is, when there really is a crisis in America and we all have to fend for ourselves, will we have the knowledge and the desire to survive? How will we handle the stress?
Lisa says it’s not enough simply to know how to survive. We must want to survive. We must have that core desire. In this episode, Lisa and Bill talk about how history, faith and family can give us guidance.
Lisa and Bill also discuss current events, including the Colorado floods and the mass shooting in Washington, D.C.View Text Transcription
