About Me

Welcome to PreparedLDSFamily!

Who am I?
My name is Valerie Albrechtsen and I'm a busy mom of 7 amazing children, three of whom are married and four are single. I'm also Grammy to 6 little darlings. I'm a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and those in my church are known as Mormons because of our believe in the Book of Mormon. LDS stands for Latter-day Saint meaning I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ in the latter days. I currently volunteer as a Primary 2nd Counselor to grade school-age children.

Where am I from?
I live in Farmington, Utah, but was raised  in Yorba Linda, California. I studied journalism at Brigham Young University, but earned an MRS instead of my BS. I've also earned the title of head cook, nurse, accountant, interior decorator, chauffeur, teacher, and queen of the castle.

Why do I write this blog?
We've been blessed by following the counsel of our LDS Church leaders to become better prepared both physically and spiritually for trials in our lives. Preparedness brings peace to me and this blog is my way of sharing hope with my brothers and sisters around the world.

What is my preparedness advice to you?
  • You can't prepare for everything, but you can prepare for something. So, do something.
  • Avoid doomsday websites. I believe God decides when my time on earth is over.
  • Don't try to be a prepper you aren't. I'm a semi-homemade food storage queen and that's A-OK.
  • Store what you eat, eat what you store. So, if you store wheat, learn how to use it.
  • Make preparedness a natural part of your life by gathering a little extra when you grocery shop.
  • Set monthly goals and be patient with your progress. 
  • Remain hopeful. You CAN do something!
I love hearing from you, but I'm busy and respond when I can. I welcome readers of all faiths and consider you my brothers and sisters. I hope you find what you are looking for at Prepared LDS Family.

When you write to me, please tell me the following so I know how best to respond:
  • What state or country are you from?
  • Are you Mormon or another religion?
  • What can I help you with?
  • If you have a preparedness story you'd like to share, I'd love to hear it!

Thank you!
