Faith, family, hard work, and second chances are at the core of every great American story. Jenny Doan has one of those great American stories.
Over the last decade, the Doan family business has grown from Jenny's corner shop to become the largest supplier of pre-cut quilting fabric. In this memoir, Jenny reveals the full the behind-the-scenes story, from her humble beginnings as a homeschooling mom, to the remarkable success she's so well-known for today: the Missouri Star Quilt Company.
In her heart-warming style, she invites you on her remarkable journey to overcome hardship and ignite the power of giving—all while revitalizing a small town along the way. You're about to find out:
- How she and her husband, Ron, raised seven children on a shoestring budget—and had fun doing 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.
- 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.
How to Stitch an American Dream will make you laugh, cry, and say, "bless your heart," as Jenny Doan invites you into her own American dream.
