Helping Families Get Prepared

“may you live in interesting times”

This old adage is meant to be thought-provoking. Is it a blessing or a curse? A genuine hope that you’ll live to see exciting moments in history, or a warning to appreciate the rare periods of peace? As we are now seeing, “interesting” can be difficult.
