Let me introduce you to Ruby! I have a feeling that she is like you in some ways and different from you in others. Hopefully, you will find her someone nice to have for a friend.
Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.

Ruby lives with her family in the country, but they aren’t too far from a good sized town where they do their shopping and attend a small church. As far as Ruby’s family, I think they are an average homeschool family of six children.
Ruby stays busy finishing her homeschooling and helping out with chores. Whenever she can, she likes to make crafts, scribble down bits of stories or poetry, and send cards and letters to her friends. She also tries to spend time working on her friendship with her best friend, Jesus, but sometimes she gets distracted. Ruby wants to be a Proverbs 31 woman and please the Lord, so she continues to ask God to help her grow and learn.
So now you have been introduced to my friend Ruby! What do you think of her? I hope you like her because Lord willing, you will be hearing a lot from her in the months (and hopefully years) ahead. We are going to visit her and her family often to find out what is going on in their lives. Hopefully you will enjoy spending time with Ruby and will learn along with her as she learns more about God’s plan for her.
You can expect to see a short story about Ruby every month or so. Be on the lookout for February’s story where we will get to meet the rest of her family and see what it is that they are feeling nervous about. But you don’t need to be nervous because it will just be a fun story for you to read!
I would love to hear what you think of our friend Ruby and this new blog series!
