My mother, of course! She was full of love, happiness, joy, and fun. She made every day seem like sunshine. She could take a boring moment and make it so exciting. Rocks became game pieces and sticks became objects for life lessons. She poured out generously to her family, the neighborhood children and our community.
Girl, nobody can be you! You are unique and perfect just the way you are! Your beauty radiates from your heart, your smile, your kind words, your big hugs. Walk confidently knowing that your worth is far beyond your wardrobe, your beauty is far beyond your body and your future is far beyond anything you can imagine! Go for it.
I grew up on a farm and have always been really involved in production agriculture. For years, I thought it wasn’t cool to be the girl who knew all the plants and trees around, and when I finally really found my identity a couple years ago, I decided to just be the best version of my authentic self—to rock it, to own it and to be ok with it, and so I launched The Farmhouse Movement magazine, which is now on major newsstands around the world. I’m walking confidently in who I am and unfolding the Farmhouse story for our generation.
My faith is definitely my rock and inspires me to be better every day. I am inspired by my family members and friends, but one of the things that inspires me the most is to see women, day in, day out, overcome all odds and rise up out of impossible situations to pursue their dreams in business. The ones who weren’t supposed to make it inspire me the most.
Is there anywhere in 417-land that isn’t beautiful? Every lake, river and stream provide peace to our region. The plants and trees are as diverse and beautiful as anywhere in the world. The landscapes are unique and full of variation. But the people here are the best part. You’ll always find a warm smile, a generous encounter—our first meal in town was paid for by a perfect stranger—and friendships to last a lifetime.
I love how many entrepreneurs are here in our region. I think creating and maintaining a consistent market for them here, keeping their doors open and their revenue coming in, and elevating their offerings and brands is key to keeping up with the demands of online markets and overseas trade. America was built on small businesses, and I believe those small businessmen and businesswomen are our future as well.
