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.

PreparednessRetreat.com is the first known weekend preparedness training just for families! Donna and Joe have been in planning for this event since late 2013. 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:

  • Charles Daugherty of Patriot Crime Defense is the presenter for the Refuse to be a Victim class.
  • 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.
  • Donna Miller will teach solar cooking and other preparedness techniques for feeding and sustaining the family.
  • 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.

Donna has been part of the PreparednessRadioNetwork.com since its succession to the Doctor Prepper Talk Show in June 2010. 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 helped the Miller family succeed in their effort to find 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 with their new-found friends. On YPS , the Millers share tips and resources on self-reliant living, gardening, farming, solar energy, livestock, homesteading, milling and baking with whole grains, and to living more frugally and saving money on grocery bills. In addition to being a great resource for information, YPS also provides insight into the heart and mind (knowledge) they want to share by teaching correct principles. 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.

The Millers also own and operate MillersGrainHouse.com as the family business which provides tips, training and retreats as well as vital supplies for preparing yourself and your home for an uncertain future and gaining many important back to basics skills.

MGH has as its mission to provide training and resources for individual and family preparation. From bulk grains for storage, solar energy, to gardening and housing tools, Donna works hard to find preparation supplies that will assist you as you prepare. MGH carries a full line of whole grains, grain milling, and kitchen supplies. MGH also offers training on how to mill grains and bake with whole grains. Donna can help you with every aspect of emergency readiness, thereby helping protect and prepare families and communities.

The Millers’ philosophy on Preparation is that of being sustainable and sharing peace in the midst of chaos. They are neither survivalists nor hoarders, but rather believers in developing skills and preparing their family enables them to spread knowledge and training that they have learned in order to help others.

History Channel’s Eustace Conway, The Last American Man

Did you know adults and families can go to a camp at Turtle Island Preserve too?  Wouldn’t you want to gain skills that have been lost for generations?  Isn’t it time to get in touch with what it means to live life untethered from technology? Listen to this episode of Your Preparation Station to learn more.

Donna Miller is thrilled, once again, to have Eustace Conway (whom you may know from the History Channel Series: “Mountain Men”) along with Desere from Turtle Island Preserve as Donna’s very special guests for this episode.

If you heard them on this YPS Show last year, during the battle with local government bureaucracy which Eustace was having, you’ll want to tune in to hear the update and all that goes on in a place which YOU have helped rally to help!

You can also help someone else attend camp this year by supporting TIP’s Online Scholarship Efforts.  Or email: Mail@TurtleIslandPreserve.com  or call: (828) 265-2267

Reconnecting with Traditional Skills, Turtle Island Preserve

In this episode of Your Preparation Station, Donna Miller is joined by Eustace Conway, Owner/Operator/Director and Desere, Office Manager/Assistant of  Turtle Island Preserve.

Eustace is the subject of the book “The Last American Man” by Elizabeth Gilbert and of an early episode of the weekly radio show This American Life.

Turtle Island Preserve is in danger! Recently, local county government authorities have targeted Turtle Island Preserve, attacking their way of life, and forcing our educational camp to close to visitors. Much time and money has been spent to target this 501c3 and tonight we want to get the word out and rally the troupes!

Turtle Island Preserve offers programs, classes & camps that teach both skills & a deeper connection with ways that have been lost in current society. A lifestyle that once provided peace and sustainability to our ancestors. Turtle Island is also an on-going, living, breathing community that enjoys a far simpler existence without many of the trappings of the current status-quo.
