Specializing in
food storage and preparedness
in the South


Our Goal:  To teach and encourage preparedness of all kinds and to provide reliable information that encourages and inspires the regular use of preparedness resources and supplies, especially in the Southern US climate.

Cheryl was raised in a military family and has lived around the world.  Over 40 years have been spent living in Texas both before and after getting married.  Her university education is in Food Science and Nutrition from Brigham Young University.  She has taught home storage and preparedness classes since 1977 and has had a regularly used personal home storage program since 1974.  In addition to teaching, she has organized fairs, conferences, socials, and workshops that focus on home storage and preparedness.  Cheryl worked in the LDS Church cannery and storehouse system helping to supervise both dry and wet pack canning and peanut butter canning.  Having held various leadership positions in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, she served as a ward Relief Society president for nearly 4 years and in the Stake Relief Society presidency for the same amount of time.  She has been a member and chairman of the Houston Northwest Chamber of Commerce Emergency Preparedness Task Force and has represented that organization as a preparedness speaker throughout the Houston metro area and at the 2002 Neighborhoods USA convention.  Cheryl represented her church as a speaker at the Interfaith Ministries for Greater Houston 2006 Interfaith Disaster Preparedness Conference, also.  She and her husband, Allan, are the parents of 5 daughters and grandparents of 20 grandchildren.  They live in Spring, Texas, a suburb of Houston and are Hurricane Ike survivors.
