Our nation is not in good shape what so ever. The government says that we are doing great, but the grocery bills, utility bills and all the other bills we are paying does not back up what our wonderful leaders are telling us.
Folks, it is hard out there. But it isn’t the end of the world. The more knowledge we have, the better we can preserve our wealth and have a more satisfied life.
What I am about to share is information I have learned from our great grandparents who lived through the great depression as well as other times of hardship.
King Solomon, the wisest man in the world stated the following…
Ecclesiastes 1:9-11 The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.
10 Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us.
11 There is no remembrance of former things; neither shall there be any remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after.
What he is saying here is that if we do not learn from our history, we are destined to repeat it. He also states that man does not remember his history. So it is important that we do our research and make a point to try to learn from our past.
There are many great lessons that we can learn from those who lived before us. Our great grandparents were people who were not born in the age of instant gratification, Walmart or Target.
If you were hungry, you had to raise the food or go hunt or fish for food. If you did not have food, you had a skill that you could trade for food.
During the spring and summer everyone grew a garden, and when crops were being harvested, the family worked to can, dry, and lay up the excess food for the winter when there was no garden to pick from.
They tried to lay up enough food that if there was a drought or famine, there would be enough food to get them through to the next harvest.
They did not put all their money in the bank and quiet often kept much of their money underneath their mattress or some other sort of safe spot they could stash their money.
There was no such thing as 401K, IRA or some other form of retirement income. Retirement is something of a new idea and believe it or not, is not biblically supported. So they got up with the sun, did a hard day’s work, and in the evenings enjoyed the quality time with the family.
There are a lot of ideas that seem old fashioned, but you know what? Our forefathers made it through the times of economic hardship.
11 Facts About the Great Depression
1. The Great Depression did not happen overnight.
2. The media created panic and chaos with their sensationalized reports, creating uncertainty in the market.
3. Being poor was so common that being poor was considered “normal”.
4. Hard work and an enterprising attitude made a bad situation tolerable.
5. Investing time and energy in gardening and the raising of livestock (chickens and cows) had a huge payback in self-reliance.
6. Canning and preserving food was important if you wanted food to eat year-round.
7. The price of everything escalated on an almost daily basis.
8. Lawlessness was rampant. In addition to ruthless outlaws, neighbors stole from neighbors everything from food items to livestock to valuables such as jewelry and tools.
9. In spite of everything, “Robin Hoods” emerged from unexpected places to help feed the people.
10. Families learned to make do and to enjoy themselves with amusements and hobbies that took little or no money.
11. And perhaps the biggest lesson, use it up, wear it out, make do, or do without!
About The Information I Am Sharing

This book is for the person who.. maybe has that pittance of a retirement account that will not see you through two years past 65.

This book is for the person who…. does not trust their money being in the stock market for fear that one day the Government might confiscate it or their retirement account goes up in smoke because some fat cat on Wall Street ran a bad bet on some derivatives and instead of him losing, you lost it all in a matter of seconds.
This book is for the person who….. sees the writing on the wall and realizes that one day the US Economy will fall through the floor and the paper dollar will be used to wipe up after a mess and then flushed down the toilet.
This book is for the person who…… sees, knows and recognizes tangible assets that most other people do not see or recognize and want to know what to do with those uncommon tangible assests.
