One more question!

I said I wasn’t answering anymore questions, but I realized there was one I’d meant to touch on. Several people asked me if it was really me on social media, and I’ve seen reviews that mention that the reviewer doesn’t think I really write my own books. If I think about it for too long, […]

A Sweet Note for All of You

I always get great feedback from authors who are in my newsletter about you all, but this week I got the nicest note thanking me for what you all did, and I ask the author if she’d like to thank you herself. She definitely wanted to and also wanted to offer you something, so here […]

Moms & Grandmas

Before Christmas I did something a little crazy.  I bought four draft horses for myself, three old Belgian mares and a Percheron. Draft horses are the big, heavy work horses you see hitched to Amish plows and doing field work. I’ve always loved drafts, maybe because they’re so big and powerful, but also usually very […]

Happy New Year!

Wow! I was so blessed by all of your emails to me about reading the Bible through last year. What a joy to know so many people are in the Word. Of course, some of you read it slower, in smaller chunks, and that’s totally fine, and some of you copy it out by hand, […]

How was your 2022?

I wanted to pause for a minute and thank you all for a wonderful 2022! I’ve seen a lot of authors recapping their year in books, and that’s always fun, and I do have a graphic of mine, but for sure, reading The Book – God’s Word – through means more to me than how […]

Jessie answers your questions

I hope you all had a joyous Christmas and were able to stay warm and comfy. : ) We had a mostly quiet weekend. We dealt with the cold like everyone else, with a few frozen lines and some equipment that wouldn’t start and fun stuff like that. We didn’t lose any animals, even the […]

When you’re here, you’re family.

I don’t know if you all remember this summer where I struggled some – I was pretty much unable to do much of anything – just breathing was exhausting. I’d walk down the stairs, then lie down on the hall floor to catch my breath.  That’s how I was feeling when I wrote this book.  […]

Some Sad News

I love this time of year. Love the changing colors and the deep blue sky. The shifting of the season from one of loads of neverending work and busyness to one of quiet rest.  There is something fascinating and peaceful and soul-satisfying in watching the leaves flutter to the ground. I’m blessed to have my […]
