Summary, etc.:
"Over the last decade, the Doan family business, the Missouri Star Quilt Company in tiny Hamilton, Missouri, has grown from Jenny's corner shop -- with one quilting machine and two bolts of fabric for sale in the back -- to become the largest supplier of pre-cut quilting fabric in the U.S. and the headquarters of Jenny's world-famous YouTube tutorial videos. Jenny is now giving her fans, the business world, and moms of all ages (and grandmas too!) what they've been asking for: the full story of her journey, from her humble beginnings as a homeschooling mom, to founding MSQC in her fifties, through the remarkable success and inspiration she's so well-known for today. In this book, you'll learn: how she and her beloved husband, Ron, raised seven children on a shoestring budget -- and had fun doing it; how, after a string of bad luck, the family made a prayer-based decision to leave California behind and start over again in rural Missouri, even though they had no place to live, no jobs lined up, and no idea how they were going to make it; how Jenny, Ron and their children worked side-by-side to patch together a family home out of a crumbling shell of a farmhouse; and how their faith, hard work, and generosity not only carried them through the hard times, but led directly to the success of the Missouri Star Quilt Company"-- Provided by publisher.
