She is an imperfect mother of three and grandmother to two. Her husband is her rock, her best friend and her soul mate. They share a very secluded 40 acre farm in SE Oklahoma with their two young sons and a plethora of farm animals.  It is family land and we only own a small portion of it but are blessed enough to be able to roam the whole lot.  :-)

Her husband has an Associate’s Degree in Electronics and his Bachelor and Master Degrees are both in Information Technology. Melody is a cook extraordinaire and her husband is a “jack-of-all trades and master of none”. We try to run our lives and our blogs the same way by being Christ-centered, family loving, and self-sustaining.

  4. Hi Melody,
    Thanks so much for inviting me to link up. I was delighted to see that you're a homeschooling momma :) I graduated my last daughter after 17 years, and lived to write a book about it -- Joy in the Journey ~ Encouragement for Homeschooling Moms. I'd love to send you a free download code for the ebook as an encouragement to you. If you'll email me with your email address, I'll get it right out to you. loriahatcher (at)gmail.com

  6. Hi Melody,

    Thanks so much for visiting our Facebook page "The Business of Home" I appreciate it! We are just getting our page off the ground so to speak, and are in the midst of creating our website as well. I would be interested in contributing a guest post. I love to write, and have been a regular columnist for a local monthly newspaper publication (hardcopy & online) called "The Valley Newspaper" (http://www.thevalleynewspaper.com). I write two columns monthly called: "Contentment Quest" about the journey of finding contentment in life with what we have (the stuff that is right before our eyes), and "Savvy Cents & Sensibility" about saving money while increasing value and benefit. In addition, I published my first book in October 2013 with Westbow Press (a division of Thomas Nelson Publishing) called "An Arduous Ascent: The Climb of a Lifetime" The book is a synergy of a memoir/devotional/workbook regarding pinnacles and pitfalls experienced in life as we learn and grow towards our fullest potential. The book was published under my maiden name - JoAnn Wills. If you'd like, I can send you a "book stub" that allows for a free download of my book for you to peruse. My personal email is jmw144@hotmail.com. I look forward to hearing from you! JoAnn M. Kline, "The Business of Home."
