"When Covid hit I was laid off at my job. The job was mediocre, however I was grateful to have it. I moved to Ava in 2018, and even though I was from a small town in MO, I wasn’t from this one. It was hard to find someone to hire me without knowing who I was. So this was a huge blow to my heart. I felt useless as I watched my husband work hard day in and day out. I put in over 131 applications in person and online. I had been praying for almost 2 years for God to find the perfect job for me, Since I clearly wasn’t producing anything on my own. I was offered a position for Pioneer Village. It was the start of something truly beautiful in my life and led me to become a FT aide at Trico. However, the biggest surprise and blessing was to be able to work with another devoted Christian. Shealee may be young but she is going places and moving mountains with God by her side. You are an amazing coworker and friend! Thank you for all you do!"

"Personable, knowledgeable, encouraging, family-friendly, and fun! Shealee at ‘Loving the Farm’ is truly a jewel; and if you want to gain understanding and excitement about farm life, pet some adorable creatures, try some AMAZING goats milk soap, or need wisdom in your own animal husbandry journey, head over her way!! I highly recommend her!

"I love how your family came out when we came to visit, and were a part of your farm life. I feel like you and your family connected with us. You are so relaxing and humble, yet pack a punch for knowledge!!
