The last days bring forth a great level of uncertain and grim fate in regards to the estate of our comfortable amenities like: a stationary home, transportation, accessible food, food storage, running water for hygiene, and access to medicine. The biblical prophecies regarding the last days bring in a heightened level of uncertainty especially for the poor, even more so for the Israelite, and undoubtedly for the Israelite woman with little children. The scriptures even state:
The word woe means distress, anguish, affliction, and tribulation. But what about the last days, and why is it going to be such a “woe” situation? According to scriptures there will be natural disasters which ruin food supplies, friends will destroy one another, and unrighteousness will multiply in the earth. (2Esdras 5:7-9)
All these and more last day events stated in the scriptures leaves us with an urgent need of self-sufficient dependency, or in other words prepared to survive. Remember, survival preparedness is not a sign of doubt but is a show of faith in the bibles prophecies of the last days.
“Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.” James 2:18

For example: How much water does a pregnant woman need in the summer months and and how much sanitation supplies will be needed to keep herself bacteria free? This is one example of preparation thinking. For every type of previously mentioned woman’s scenario a kit should be brainstormed. Another example I will provide below is a kit idea for a mother of two; one nursing infant as well as a toddler.It is a 1 month supply kit list, however, experts are now suggesting we prepare a 3-month supply kit.
