I've seen nearly every thing in my 'game' of life. I swear, I have.
The Doans HIT the economy on just the right stride!
This kind of stuff makes me weep. (Actually BAWL like a baby. I have to take a breath, just to keep up with myself....)
Just the 'right stuff', at the right time.
GOOD things DO come to GOOD people, after all.
On a hope and a promise....
Dear God, I LOVE this country!

When I read about the Doans, I feel pride almost as if they were my blood relatives. About two years ago, I called M* and talked to Jenny... she was so gracious and fun and genuinely interested in why I'd called. We talked for about ten minutes and I was able to tell her how she's blessed so many of us and motivated us to make thousands of quilts. She was very humble and I couldn't help but love her. It's so amazing how M* has revitalized Hamilton and even the post office benefits. Great article and I pray for God's blessings on the entire family ....
They are a wonderful example of what it takes to make America so great!
Thank you Jenny, Al, Nat and all of Missouri *

My son has a blog for tech people, but also talks about what makes businesses successful. I just sent this to him, knowing that he will be inspired by this family business.

Now the city fathers need to get busy and get a restaurant or two in Hamilton. We all know how quilters love to eat.

What a nice article. The Doans deserve all the success they have earned. God bless them.

This shows that hard work, determination, and devotion will bring success. Did they ever think that this small family business would bring such pride to their town? That people would come from all corners of the world to see them? I know when I watch Jenny on YouTube, she is speaking to me. I get a renewed enthusiasm to quilting, YES I CAN DO THAT! Thank you to the Doan family for letting us become part of you family.

Jenny's tutorials is what led to me quilting just these short months ago. It led to me to her store and to all of you. Who says one person can't make a difference in the world? Thank you Jenny and thank you to her family (and friends) that decided Mom needed a little something to do. :icon_kiss:
