She calls herself the Survival Mom and she specializes in teaching people how to prepare for the curveballs that life can sometimes throw.

Lisa Bedford teaches classes throughout Phoenix that can help people prepare themselves for the future, whether it is dealing with financial uncertainty or a natural disaster.

"There are people out there right now who are concerned about the future," Bedford said. "The most important thing is dealing with financial issues. It can put pressure on people. There are concerns like, ‘How do I save money and pay off debt at the same time?'"

That is just one of many issues she said she talks about during her classes and on her blog,

Bedford has been involved with education for 25 years, including training teachers for four years. She also has 17 years of experience training in the direct sales industry.

The Survival Mom was born after Bedford saw a lack of websites for preparedness for moms and grandmothers.

"There really was nothing out there for women and moms," she said. "I wanted to do something that showed how to protect families for moms."

After starting her venture, Bedford appeared in Newsweek as well as on Fox News in Phoenix.

The classes she teaches, however, are for everyone.

"There are things out there, like in the government that we have no control over," she said. "But there are things that anyone can do at a micro level that give you more control of your own life."

Bedford will be teaching three separate classes at Honeyville Farms, 33 S. 56th St. in Chandler, on Saturday, Sept. 11.

The first class, Ready for Anything, will be from 9:30 to 10 a.m. and is free. The class will show how to build a vehicle emergency kit. The second, from 10:30 a.m. to noon, is All-Around Preparedness. The last session, from 1:30 to 3 p.m., covers the top 10 foods to store. The fee to attend the second and third sessions is $15 per class or $25 for both.
