Home Invasion: Staying Safe & Secure At Home

Join  Donna Miller, Host of Your Preparation Station as she visits with Charles Daugherty of Patriot Crime Defense.  Charles has some first-hand experience with fortifying his home (and the homes of other people) to protect from the number one crime in America: Home Invasion.  Charles shares his journey, his Faith and some great tips to help keep your home safe & secure.

A personal introduction from Charles:

“My goal in life is very simple; I want to honor God in my work, take care of my family, and help others succeed!

I am currently the owner of Patriot Crime Defense which is the DBA name for Red Fern Dynamics. Patriot Crime Defense specializes in home security from a prevention stand point. We have designed and have manufactured The Patriot Door Kit, which when installed will prevent your doors from being kicked in. This type of breach is the most common way a criminal gains access to your home. My former business partner and lifelong friend and I started working on this particular problem in 2009 right after we won the Annual Soin Award for Industrial Automation. We have designed and invented multiple tools and machines through the years, even before graduating from High School. So when we were confronted with this problem and challenge, we kicked it into gear (pun intended.) The end result 6 months later was the Patriot Door Kit formerly known as the Door Sentinel along with additional patents pending.

In addition to my engineering and design background, I am also an avid outdoorsman. I am a certified NRA Rifle and Pistol Instructor as well as a Range Safety Officer. I teach survival skills, I am a 4-H Forestry Coach, permaculture designer, BSA Scout Master, Civil Air Patrol Ground Team Leader, Sartech II Certified and even a Certified EMR. I believe that preparation, on all fronts, is not only prudent but providential.”

Her Own Untraditional Idaho, Tammy Trayer

Tammy Trayer, author of Mountain Woman Journals, is a freelance writer, an author, a radio show hostess, and a longtime web designer. She specializes in the outdoors environment, is an active entrepreneur, a true pioneer women, an avid hunter, an accomplished outdoorswoman, experienced homesteader, active homeschool mother and wife.

Tammy is a Christian, self-reliant Mom living off-grid and living untraditionally in Idaho with her husband and son. She and her husband Glen––whom she regards as her Mountain Man & the cowboy of her dreams––and family live untraditionally off-grid and enjoy educating their son on autism, gluten-free and dairy-free cooking, self-reliance, wilderness survival and so much more.

Tammy says she is living and enjoying her life and sharing it with others!  It can be sketchy being 100% off-grid. The entire family are “embracers” of the wilderness lifestyle, and have built their own log home of their dreams in the forest of the NW Idaho forests. They practice and enjoy the “less is more” lifestyle, and find the far woods and hills more rewarding than they ever imagined!

Even with the restrictions of being totally off-grid, Tammy is able to be a contributing writer for these magazines, chronicling her homesteading and pioneer lifestyle to help others achieve their independence from the urban environment:

Tammy’s accomplishments can be found online at these websites:

We had an outstanding trouble-free telephone connection during our interview—testimony to husband Glen’s prowess with equipment and tools.

Tammy admits they wouldn’t be where they are now if it were not for God’s hand in things. She says the family feels nudged by inspirational guidance to be able to:

  • Educate their son
  • Share their knowledge and lifestyle
  • Inspire others to be self-reliant

Tammy is indeed willing and eager to share her knowledge, skills, and talents about the family’s unconventional and non-traditional lifestyle. On the show, she discussed with Doctor Prepper her love of:

  • Writing
  • Her radio show
  • Family’s current YouTube series
  • Their MultiFlame Tools
  • Her frequent video chats

Pioneering Today: Faith and Home the Old Fashioned Way, Melissa K. Norris

Do you know what the term” Pioneering Today” means? Want to know more about true heirloom gardening?   How can busy people still cook real food from scratch? Can this lifestyle cost you less money? Get tips for getting started, as well as what foods to store in large quantities.

This week’s Secrets of a Survivalist radio show talks to Melissa K. Norris, author, speaker, and radio show host. Her books and articles are inspired by her family’s small herd of beef cattle, and forays into quilting and canning (without always reading the directions first). She practices the skills passed down for generations through her family, including their own strain of heirloom green bean seed, and teaches others how to implement the best of the pioneer lifestyle into their modern lives.

Preparedness Maven, Practitioner, Teacher and Role Model, Donna Miller

Donna Miller, first and foremost, is a teacher, author, sought-after speaker and trainer in the preparedness industry. She has been a both guest and host on Internet and broadcast radio talk shows, television interviews, and expositions. She enjoys teaching online and local preparedness classes and ladies’ retreats for people to learn more than just head-knowledge of preparedness skills.

Under the leadership of her husband Joseph, Donna and her family have been actively preparing for more 25 years. It was only a few short years ago that the discussions about “preparation” seemed far-fetched and radical. Today, it has become a mainstream topic all over the world––and people are now highly active toward learning how to be more prepared.

The Millers have been blessed to meet many people along the preparedness journey who inspire and encourage them. This journey looks different for each family and they’ve enjoyed learning and growing along the way by having first-hand experience with building and living out of a year’s food supply, bartering and teaching ourselves ‘old skills’ to enrich their lives. Donna is happily married and has three adult children, and a daughter in-law. She and her husband Joseph are the founders of Millers Grain HouseYour Preparation Station and are on th  e board of PREPARE Magazine.

This Preparedness Retreat will include on-site and hands-on training, networking, and equipping attendees with the survival skills they need for perilous times.

Welcome to the Preparedness Retreat Center! The entire cost of the weekend of classes and training will be inclusive for all meals, accommodations and classes! Only one class is an extra charge—the Refuse to be a Victim class offers a certificate for completing the course work, and the $10.00 fee is required for the NRA certification. Details of classes, accommodation packages, and rooms and camper/parking costs are available at: alwaysreadystore.com. The prices for the Preparedness Retreat are a bargain for the value you’ll receive! Additional information available by calling (800) 361-1797 Ext 8 or email to: info@preparednessretreat.com.

Trainers and presenters are some of the most knowledgeable experts in their fields:

  • Jim Kennard, CEO of Food For Everyone Foundation will be teaching the effectiveness of the Mittleider Gardening Method.
  • Jason Hunt from Frontier Christian University will be teaching how to build fires when extreme conditions exist.

  • Joseph Miller will instruct in his perspective of spiritual preparedness and discuss his vision of the future of Biblical references and issues for families.

Classes will be taught twice to assure all attendees can attend all the instructional classes.

Just a few months later, Donna and her husband Joseph launched YourPreparationStation.com with the purpose and mission to provide quality products and purpose-filled training in personal and family preparation (preparedness), self-reliant living, and survival during difficult times.

The Miller family has been active in preparing for many years, and they feel they have been blessed to meet many people along the preparedness journey who inspire and encourage them. They’ve seen YPS grow into a vibrant community of friends who share the interest of preparing and frugal living.

YPS continues to expand its preparedness products and informational services. Donna and Joseph look forward to a very busy and successful future as they expand their combined efforts to share their passion, creativity, and expertise in preparedness, prepping, and family survival issues.

The Millers are always looking for others to join with them in their journey and are grateful for the opportunity to share ideas, tips, skills, and lots of money-saving suggestions. Their desire is to peacefully build an encouraged and empowered, prepared and self-reliance community in the midst of chaotic times.

Emergency Preparedness and Disaster Relief

Jennifer Elswick, a professional preparedness and disaster worker and CERT teacher, discusses her passion for helping people become prepared––especially with food storage. Jennifer tells us how to help ourselves and others in need and also the why and how of using Thrive foods for long-term storage and every day as well!

Preparedness has been a driving force for Jennifer and her husband since Hurricane Andrew in 1992. She now helps others with networking and resourcing is every aspect of family preparedness. She realizes that supporting the prepping family keeps America alive and strong.

Jennifer and her husband and I have been personally working in Emergency Preparedness and Disaster Relief for more than 20 years––since Hurricane Andrew hit South Florida. They felt in their hearts that they should help the victims, marshalled their own and other volunteered support, and that was the true start to their disaster relief mission.

Emergency Preparedness has always been a way of life for them––they hadn’t a name for it until that point in time, but they discovered their inner prepper and have continued to be  preppers since that event. They recognize that people need to have a little more of everything stored to get their family through such occurrences, and that weather-ret or ; they can happen at any time.

Ken and Jen have formed an amazing network––a prep family––that has brought us to where we are today.  It has been wonderful journey that has blessed them for more than 20 years.

They teach people how to affordably purchase long-term food storage and emergency items can be purchased affordably.

How to acquire Non-GMO, MSG-free and healthy food––including an organic line of items.
Using Thrive foods on a daily basis and saving money.  Stop wasting time, money and throwing food away.
Establish networking and preparedness with proper groups of people and create a preparedness community.
