Home & Family

Few things in life are more important to us than family! That’s why having a plan is so critical. Did you know that on average, 358,500 homes experience a structure fire every year? And according to FEMA statistics, a small cooking fire can turn into a major blaze in as little as 30 second! Does your family have a plan? Having a plan may make all the difference when critical moments occur!

In the Home & Family category we talk about lots more than just fires though. You can expect to see discussions on things like:

  • Starting a Homestead with Small Animals
  • Homeschooling
  • Traveling with Small Children
  • much more!
