Welcome to Provident Home Companion! I am your host, Charlene. I love learning everything I can about everything, which I guess kind of makes me a renaissance woman.
I am happily married to my husband, Ross and we have three sons. We live on a nice little 4-acre patch of land in North Dakota that has taught us a lot about preparedness and living self-reliantly. I love (in no particular order): music, astronomy, gardening, reading, homemaking skills of all kinds but especially cooking and bike riding (because it’s so easy on the flat plains of ND).
I am the municipal judge for our small town and am politically active. I volunteer at a nursing home and the library in our little town. I teach seminars and classes for church and adult education on preparedness topics and skills. I hope the experiences that I’ve had living out here on the plains will be helpful to you as you try to live providently.
