Publisher's Summary

How we became self-sufficient in homesteading as a family
I want to share my life story with you as a way to help others going through a difficult situation. I realize that today many are facing financial and other major life issues. At first I went about my life, enjoying everything I had and none the wiser about how difficult things could become. However, that's when my life changed. It wasn't long after I lost my job that I found myself struggling to support my wife and our six-year-old son. I began to worry about what I was going to do and how I could possibly turn the situation around. That's when I learned about something called homesteading. I had never heard of it before, and it took quite a learning curve, but in just 12 months I was able to make our family self-sufficient and improve our life to a standard even better than it was before. So if you find yourself in a similar situation consider homesteading. Let me take you through my first 12 months and you'll be amazed at what you can do when you set your mind to it.

Enjoyable, but brief.

Good narration. Pleasant listening. Wished it was a bit longer since I can listen faster than I can read. :)
