Well, where do I start. I’ve lived on a farm my entire life, near a small town in Southwest Kansas. I grew up attending a Mennonite church and still am active in the Mennonite community today. I’ve always loved animals–especially horses! Right now, I have two horses. I’m slowly talking my husband into getting more animals–we’ll see, maybe one day. I go riding whenever possible. There is nothing like riding a horse through the country sight– or anywhere for that matter. Some of the most peaceful and precious times in my life were spent bonding with a horse; also some of my most painful times. After all, horses do kick, bite and buck.
Although animals are part of a farm life, there’s much more to it. I spend a lot of time in the garden during the summer months. My parents have a BIG yard, where I spend a lot of my time weeding the flower patches, mowing, and a lot of other jobs. When I’m not doing that, I’m working on my own yard or I’m driving a tractor. The good part comes at the end of the summer–canning. When August rolls around you’ll find me in the kitchen canning almost about anything.
The farm and the household chores keep me busy, but there’s always time to write. Even though it sometimes gets stressful trying to do everything, the work I do is where I get my inspiration from. I consider myself blessed to be able to do what I love: work on the farm and write to share God’s glory.
This sums up about everything. All I have to say now: keep a look out for more books that might come your way in the near future. God willing, there will be many more! Until then, be sure check out the first one.
