Jimmy “Jim” Dale McClelland was born on November 12, 1947, in the small town of Leachville, Arkansas. In 1965, Jim was given the blessing of marrying Janice Ann Poe and still to this day reaps the rewards of that blessing from God. Besides his wife and two children, Matt and Amie, he was also given another blessing much later on in life: the gift of writing. Many might consider Jim a businessman, but he is also known to many as a loving husband, caring father, and friend for life. As you will discover in this book, one of Jim’s greatest passions is for the outdoors—specifically, mowing the lawn! You will find him rolling along on one of his lawnmowers, a place he considers a peaceful time to reflect on the blessings that God has provided him and his family for so many years. This alone time with God appears to have given him much more than a beautifully manicured lawn; he has received many gifts from above.
