I have been thinking a lot lately about how so many skills are being lost with the youngest generation.
So many people depend upon frozen pre-made dinners, or eat out all the time. Many women have never even threaded a needle before. After living in China, I see more and more how people in the U.S., because of prosperity, are losing touch with how to actually survive. Here in China, they are only one generation away from a time when people dealt with starvation and hand to mouth living. In America, because of our wealth, people don't have to harvest their own food, or kill animals to eat them. So I decided to start a blog that teaches simple basic life skills. The blog is called "Modern Pioneer Living".
Some people might wonder why I chose this title. I am a daughter of the Utah pioneers, and had grandparents who lived that kind of survival lifestyle. But a song from our church hymnal for children:
