  1. I love the aprons & anxiously awaiting the one I got last week, I am looking to get a lined 4XL.
    One issue I found while trying to navigate is when I click on one apron to see sizes available, I find it difficult to go back t access the others. Maybe it’s just me.
    I know you don’t offer these often but it would help to put a tab or something for the aprons where all your other tabs are. I get myself confused & turned all around & end up knocking myself off.
    Would love to see more lined aprons in 4XL size in the country patterns such as the one with chickens & country theme.

    1. Loving this feedback. I actually don’t know how the store works. I have a lady who has set it up for me. I’ll definitely pass this info on to her.

      I’ll be mailing last week’s aprons before Aug. 14. 😃

      Thanks so much for the input.♥️

  2. Hey neighbor, I live in Ohio between Dayton and Cincinnati. I love the cross back aprons & purchased the only 4X one you had. I love every pattern you have & wish you offered more in the larger size. Lined. I look forward to see what other patterns you offer in the Mondays of August yet to come. Especially the one with chickens. Adorable.
    Thank you for all you do.
    Blessings 🙌☝️

    1. Hello friend, I am just now seeing this message. This Woo Commerce store and payment platform is new to me and I had no idea that there was a comment section. So sorry to have missed your messages but now I know this feature exists.

      Thanks for the purchase. I do plan to have every size available each week. Most times I only have one size in aprons as I am using the fabric that I have to keep from buying more. I have a couple of 4xl that I plan to sell but I believe they are unlined.

      I will take your thoughts and requests into consideration as I plan the last two weeks of apron choices.

      Thanks so much!!

  3. The link for the interview doesn’t work. I would love to hear more about your homeschooling.

  4. Dear Ms. Katie ,
    I first met you via a YouTube video when you, Little Missy, and Vicky from Vicky’s Country Home channel were visiting Ms. Lori &
    Mr. Brown at their Whippoorwillhollow home in Arkansas. I really enjoyed seeing you all interact together on your visit with them.

    At the time I didn’t know you were fostering or adopting Missy and her 2 other siblings. But I did observe some things about Little Missy that sent up some red flags that I caught only because I have experience working with little ones with her same past and previous situation. But also because when I was her age I had some of her same self doubts. I think that’s why I immediately caught on to several signals that she just wasn’t as comfortable in her own skin as most other little ones are at her age at the time

    I have thought a lot about her since those videos in Arkansas, and several of your other videos you have included her in on YouTube since then. I’ve wondered how she’s doing, and thought how she’s probably changing rapidly since little ones grow up so quickly.

    Then tonight after not watching YouTube for a while, suddenly Little Missy popped into my mind again. This time I immediately looked up your channel on YouTube to see if I could find any updates on the children. That’s when I discovered your video “Do we regret Adopting ” that you made just about a week ago. After I watched it I realized why I had picked up on her lack of self confidence like I did. After you briefly explained her and her siblings background it finally all made sense and my heart swelled with love and compassion for her and her brothers. It’s no wonder John-boy is in the current situation he is. With pasts like theirs, it is likely as they mature something like what’s happening to John-boy could also happen to Little Missy. As healthy young girls grow into young women, and young boys grow into young men, they naturally go (or grow) through so many physical and emotional changes anyway.

    But when they also come from troubling past circumstances like your little ones have, and the changes in the hormone levels in their own bodies also begin to increase or change so drastically during that time of physical growth, their estrogen & testosterone levels can make events that they are going through feelind like they are experiencing a catastrophic life event that trigger what just happened to John-boy. Some young ones with stable home lives and experiences like your 3 oldest may have sailed through those changes easily. And hopefully it may not be has hard on your youngest boy since he was so young when the abuse or neglect originally took place.

    Please try to tenderly draw Little Missy more emotionally close to you. Especially now, before she begins to feel more emotional crises in her young life. Sit in front of the mirror and gently brush her hair while you talk. Give her a neck massage, safe touch. Start giving her special alone daughter time just with you or
    Mr. Patience, no other kids present.

    Let her choose the activity
    she wants to do. Maybe like what we used to call “window shopping” for clothes or anything else like make up, or something else. You don’t have to spend any money unless you want to or she needs something. Remember, your goal is to specifically get to know her better without any personal judgment. Try not to use the words like “you should”, or “you always”. Use this time wisely because it will help her to be able to “want” to come to you later for help when she is feeling troubled instead of resorting to running away which is what I did too like John-boy.

    Make it your priority to learn what, where, and how her mind is working right now without any judgement or condemnation towards here actions or thoughts about what she wants to do with her life.

    As your main goal, try your hardest to only show her how much you love and accept her completely as she is presently. Learn about communicating with “Open Ended Questios”. One of the best places to talk to your teens is while you are driving. That way there is no eye contact which will make it even easier for them to be open and be honest with you.

    These are some of the things I learned from working for a Licensed Child Psychologist for over 22 years. But also since I became a serious Bible student for about the same amount of time.
    Most people have to pay over $180 per hour for the info I’ve shared with you in this short note, and I’ve seen it work time and time again. But I have seen it work even better when used on conjunction with a balanced Bible based education from a mature adult Christian that truely loves their children and prays daily for guidance from God to help them help their own children. He deeply loves them too, and will help you and them if you keep on asking.

    I hope that I have encouraged you. But mostly I hope I have helped Little Missy. The sweet young lady (Little Miss Homaker) that desperately wants to please her parents and succeed.

    Sending you Hope & Love in the future,

    Ruth Shaw

  7. I LOVE my set of potholders. They are lovely to keep out on display and they work very well at protecting my hands. I was not sure I would be able to use them to take cast iron pans off the heat but they work very well! I like how they are durable and well made.

    I already ordered a second set!

  8. Love my high-quality pot holders!!!❤️
    And even more because I love those “little hands” that made them!!😘❤️
