About Chris

I was raised in Minnesota. I joined the Navy right out of high school and moved back to Minnesota when I got out. I am married to the best woman I have ever met and am a stepfather to our two teenage boys.

I am passionate about preparedness and about sharing what I have learned. Writing this blog has been the most joy-filled, time consuming endeavour of my life and each time I get an e-mail or a comment on an article thanking me, it makes it worth every moment I spend researching and writing.

My regular job is in IT and when I am not there or working on the blog, I like to play PC games, read and enjoy time at the pistol range.

Here is a post I made called “Getting to know Chris”.

Comments

  1. I found your site and really cannot wait to get more into reading it all.

    I have found my faith again and I believe that we will live through the tribulation and I keep stumping across the same verse in the Bible talking about being prepared and I am thinking it is something I need to start working on.

    I hope that I can learn a lot here!!

    Thanks, Shirley

    • Hi Shirley,

      I’m glad you came back to the Lord, and have started prepping. I hope you enjoy the site, please feel free to email me with any questions.

      Chris

    • Hi Shirley, I came across your comment while checking out Chris’ site. I would like to recommend a book to you, “Raptured” by Zola Levitt. Zola goes through Bible prophecies concerning the tribulation period. I think you will find the book an asset to your preparedness journey. God bless.

  2. I stumbled on your site while seeking for Christian perspectives on prepping.

    As I learn more about what I should be doing to be a more “complete” Christian man and husband, I have been seeking God’s direction with regard to my role as a husband and my responsibility to take care of not only my immediate family on a daily basis, but also be able to provide for others (Christians or not) who may have need when significant life altering events present themselves.

    With that, I want to be mindful to NOT let my preparedness activities become an idol in my life, and want to remind my brothers and sisters in Christ of this as well.

    I pray that you may keep God first and be guided by the Holy Spirit in your preparedness endeavors.

    God Bless!

  3. As I am sure has been mentioned here before;

    Matthew 5:44-45
    44…Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

    45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

    As it says, the rain falls on the just and the unjust. Be prepared yourself and when it happens, help others in need as well and as best you can.

  4. Good to see a fellow “Prepared Christian”(my blog name also)…I would someday like to build a whole bible course on Prepping as a Christian and teach it across the country.

    Keep up the good work

      I’m glad to see another Christian preparedness site. I had the same idea, and might start teaching a local class. I wish you well on this.

    Chris,

    So happy to see you helping Christians, and other like minded persons, prepare for the tribulation.

    A book, “Discovery to Catastrophe,” is a great work of fiction in which biblical truth regarding the teaching of scripture is interwoven with a fictional story in which a small group discovers this truth, and begins to prepare for it.

    Blessings on you and the readers of this blog.

    • Chris Ray says:

      I think people should be preparing in general for the wide list of things that could happen.

      I’m actually reading Discovery to Catastrophe now, I like it so far.

  6. hey there and thanks for this site. i am a christian and a SURVIVALIST for what is coming, but not in it’s truest sense of preparing just for us. i have a vision and a dream of a REFUGE that God will lead them there when TRIBULATION starts. much has been done on our property out in the wilderness already, but much more still needs doing. i presently live in Brisbane/Queensland with my wife and we travel to and from the 40 acre property as often as we can. it has been like trying to find a needle in a haystack for another CHRISTIAN SURVIVALIST, especially here in Brisbane with the SAME DREAM of building a REFUGE for those that will be going through TRIBULATION. i am still seeking such a man or married couple with building skills, especially in the construction of BAG HOUSES, if you know what a bag house is? ask and i will tell you , or type it in your search engine and have a look. i often BLOG about survival myself in different forums. so if you have any members that would suit such a project then please pass along my email, with kindest regards steve

      I know there are some visitors from Australia, I hope you can connect with some.

    • Son of Liberty says:

      Steve, you will really appreciate the biblical truth discussed in the book, “Discovery to Catastrophe” as it takes a similar approach, that there will be a place (possibly places) of refuge during the time of great tribulation. They will be prepared by God himself (RE 13:14-16), and the writer holds that God will call his people to the/those place(s).

      You will find it interesting and helpful given what you have said.

      Blessings

  7. Chris,

    I came across your website this morning. It’s Sunday morning, and we would usually be in church, but we’ve just been hit by a major ice storm, so no church today. Our pastor in our small church here in Cynthiana, Indiana has been encouraging our people to be prepared, and he is doing prep work himself. We’ve started a pantry of supplies, but that’s about all so far. However, your website and several things I’ve came across lately has really motivated me to get more serious about this. Thanks for all the tremendous amount of work that you’ve obviously done in putting this together. I’ve got a very simple blog myself, and I know how much work just that takes to keep up to date and relevant. I downloaded your eBook (thanks!), and will definitely read it soon. L

      Hi Wayne,

      I’m glad you found the blog, and am glad it has helped you out. I am glad to hear your pastor is encouraging your congregation to prepare, I wish more would.

      Thank you for the compliments, the blog has taken a lot of work, and I have enjoyed most of it lol.

Speak Your Mind
