Rural Janie: Janie Dunn

Who is she?

She is a wife, mom, sister, cousin, daughter, grand-daughter.
She is in no particular order a piano teacher, news lady, graphic designer, web developer, marketer, caretaker, chicken farmer, artist, gardener, seed saver and computer fixer.
She prefers driving dirt roads over sitting in traffic.
She has learned a lot of lessons in life, such as:
  • You have to be the change you wish to see.
  • What doesn't kill you makes you stronger. When you fall down get up and try again. I can accept all things. It is well.
  • Forgiveness is for your own good.
  • Patience is a muscle, which grows the more it's used.
  • The Universal Father has a way of teaching others the lessons they need to learn, so there is no need to worry about them. We each have our own set of tailored-made lessons which we usually bring upon ourselves.
  • God is Too Great To Have One Name!
God is Great
She likes: long nature hikes with the kids, watching movies with the husband, making old-fashioned fudge, Canton Lake, Oklahoma, good enchiladas.
Canton Lake
She needs help with: designing my garden after the concepts of a forest garden, dealing with the intense weather conditions, ways to find more time in the day, beginner bee keeping, canning vegetables, how to make this website better, what to do with all these chicken feathers I've collected.
She insists on trying to live life on her own terms, even though that is the hard way. She is her own boss (well, kind of). She follows a Higher Calling. She was destined to come home and get her hands dirty. She has made mistakes and always tries to make the best. She has found forgiveness. She has loved. She has lived passionately.
She is me! ruraljanie

  1. I'm so excited about the website Janie! I think it is a place where wonderful things could happen. My only suggestion, or thought, is HOW to get women convinced that their story is important and that they SHOULD share on RWR?

  2. Good thought Heather. I'll need to let that simmer. We may have to have a tattle-tale session or something. It's simmering.
