More About the Author

Jill Winger didn't grow up on a ranch, or a farm, or even on acreage, but she's always had an unexplainable craving for the rural way of life.

She accidentally came across the modern day homesteading movement by way of a compost pile.

Since then, she's embraced every part of her newfound lifestyle and is passionate about encouraging others to pursue
a more simple way of life, even if they live in a less-than-ideal location.

She is the owner and editor of the popular Prairie Homestead blog where she shares her homesteading adventures (and failures) on a regular basis. (www.theprairiehomestead.com)

She resides in Wyoming with her husband, daughter, and a collection of farm animals that includes horses, cattle, a milk cow, dairy goats, chickens, dogs, and a barn cat. Your Custom Homestead is her first eBook.

I love this quote from Your Custom Homestead:
"...there are two kinds of wannabe homesteaders:
1. Those who jump into homesteading without thinking through any
of the details.
2. Those who are so careful and cautious that they never work up the
nerve to actually do anything."
I've always been the careful and cautious type, with the result of having lots of dreams and packets of seeds, but not many results. This ebook lays out a simple 21-day action plan for bringing my dreams into concretion - not all at once, but inch-by-inch, in a practical way. I'm glad I purchased this book, and I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to grow toward a 'homestead' lifestyle.

This book is amazing! Usually I never finish a "How To" book because I feel I have to start the steps now to fully understand what the author is talking about. But, I couldn't put my computer down until I had read every last page (even the acknowledgments). I can't wait to get started!...On my own Custom Homestead that is. Jill does a wonderful job explaining not only the steps & rewards of Homesteading, but also the possible pitfalls. Thank You for writing this ebook.

This eBook promises to "give you the tools you need to take what you currently have and make the best possible homestead out of your current situation... whether you live in the big city, in the middle of suburbia, or in a little apartment,... you can take the principles and mentality of the modern day homesteader and make them fit into your unique location..." and I'm here to tell you that it delivers the goods!

Wow. Talk about exactly what I was looking for and didn't even know it! We have been transitioning to this kind of lifestyle for the last couple of years and I am excited to find this affordable resource to pull it all together. All the information out there can be so overwhelming, yet Jill has distilled the important points for getting started into organized, realistic steps with a warm, engaging, and encouraging writing style. Green Thumbs Up!

Jill Winger writes a wonderful book. I love that she helps us to redefine Homesteading. Every person who really wants to take this on, is able to homestead.

This is not just for old hippies treading lightly on Mother Earth. It is homesteading redefined. Jill helps us see that we can buy into as much or a little of the homesteading life as suits us.

She helps us define why we want to homestead and what we will need to succeed. Even if you can't dive into country living, you may choose to adopt a less complicated life. And this is the part that I really liked about this book:

To get us started in the homesteading life, she offers us some great resources. This is how I will get into homesteading; building self reliance and independence a step at a time.

We don't get bogged down in details, but she does serve generous portions of reality and reason. I recommend you read this book before you dive into homesteading. Your Custom Homestead: Awakening a Fresh Vision of Homesteading

Being a follower of Jill's blog, I was excited to read her book. What a great resource! My husband and I have spoken often of raising our own food, but never really knew where to begin. Jill spells it all out for you from step one, even if you are on a limited budget. Even though I have read the book, I look forward to going back through it, making notes and getting started!

This is a great e-book. The resources that are included are worth the cost alone. I have been making slow changes in my own life with baking bread and preserving as homesteading and having a sustainable property is the goal for our family. This book is a great reminder to take small steps to reach larger homesteading goals.

I really like how the author lays out easy to follow steps for the beginning homesteader. She includes real-life 'peek into my life' from her experiences and great tips and references. I am starting on Day 1 and am really excited. Thank you Jill for an excellent place to start at such a reasonable price!

I was pleasantly surprised by this little book. It offers a nice "shot in the arm" for those interested in living a life that it's better connected to nature and simplicity.
