How is implementing Glenn Beck’s advice coming? Make sure to take plenty of deep breaths, hot baths, long walks, or whatever it takes to keep your spirits up.

On radio this week, Glenn laid out a few crucial rules for how to talk with your family about preparing for what is coming. I wrote down his advice, plus added a few rules of my own. Now I'm sharing them with you.

Try these out the next time you're attempting to bring your family up to speed on the state of the world, and how to prepare for the future.

1. Pick the right time.

Half asleep in bed? Nope.

In-laws are arriving in five minutes? No thanks.

Baby’s birthday party? Have you lost your mind?

Pick a low-stress time when you can really talk. Make sure everyone is calm, comfortable, and, ideally, well-fed. In couples counseling, they teach couples to employ the acronym H.A.L.T before having a serious conversation. Ask yourself, are any of the involved parties:



L.onely or


If one or more of those apply, this is the wrong time!

2. Meet them where they are.

You and your family may have very different levels of understanding. Just because you spent the morning watching Klaus Schwab while reading Alexander Dugin's The Great Awakening vs the Great Reset and figuring out how to get on your zoning board, doesn’t mean everyone in your family has. Find out what your family does know, and start there. Try to avoid opening with the whole "collapse of the West" thing.

3. Be prepared.

You can’t just do these things because Glenn told you to. Your family will see right through it. Do your own research and know your "why." The more information you can share with your family, the more of an opportunity they'll have to understand where you are coming from and meet you where you are.

4. Limit to one big conversation at a time

You may not be able to prepare every plan for a global collapse in one sitting. Maybe your spouse is open to switching your investments, but not sure about buying an apocalypse property. If you present those two ideas together, they may both get shut down. Spread it out. Talk about food storage today, local banking tomorrow and grabbing some extra gas the next day. Even that may be too fast. Stay attentive to how your family is responding to you. If you need to slow down, do it. If you can speed it up, do it. Just chip away one conversation at a time.

5. Stay calm and be patient.

I am only going to say this once, DO NOT YELL. It will not help your cause. You have to appear calm and rational, which means you have to be calm and rational. Your concern is grounded in reality—that is why you want to prepare. Explain the reality of the situation to your family with peace. Be patient and diligent as you tell them what you know. Motivate your family with love, not fear. You want to prepare because you love them, make sure they know that.

On Friday, Mercury One hosted the 2022 ProFamily Legislators Conference at The American Journey Experience. Glenn Beck shared this wisdom with legislators from all across our nation. We must be on God’s side.

Winston Marshall assumed that he would be playing banjo with Mumford & Sons well into his 60s, but one tweet — simply recommending Andy Ngo's book — was all it took for the woke mob to attack. At first, Winston apologized, saying he "was certainly open to not understanding the full picture." But after doing some research, not to mention a whole lot of soul-searching, his conscience "really started to bother" him.

On the latest episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," Winston opened up about the entire scandal, what he discovered in the wake of his cancellation, and why he's decided to put truth over career.

"I looked deeper and deeper into the topic, and I realized I hadn't been wrong [when] I'd called the author brave," Winston said of Ngo. "Not only was he brave, he'd been attacked by Antifa mobs in Oregon, and he was then attacked again ... he's unquestionably brave. And so my conscience really started to bother me ... I felt like I was in some way excusing the behavior of Antifa by apologizing for criticizing it. Which then made me feel, well, then I'm as bad as the problem because I'm sort of agreeing that it doesn't exist," he added.

"Another point, by the way, that I found it very frustrating, was that that left-wing media in this country and in my country don't even talk about [Antifa]. We can all see this footage. We see it online," Winston continued. "But they don't talk about it, and that's part of my, I think, interest initially in tweeting about Andy's book. Because I think people need to see what's going on, and it's a blind spot there. ... CNN and MSNBC, they don't cover it. Biden in his presidential election said it was just 'an idea' that didn't exist. I mean, did he not see the courthouse in Oregon being burnt down?"
