Eleanor Jo: The Farmer’s Daughter
Set in the 1930′s
Rachel Ann is having a hard time balancing her schoolwork, basketball, and chores. She loves everything she is doing but is discouraged about being so busy. Her grandmother, Eleanor Jo, shares her own childhood story of how balancing work and play was even tougher during World War II. Through hearing her grandmother’s real-life story, Rachel Ann discovers that she can work hard and still have plenty of time to enjoy life. For little Eleanor Jo, every day on the farm was the same. Each morning, her father would wake her up with a song, and each day, she faced hard work, with countless chores to be done in addition to keeping up with schoolwork. Times were difficult, but when World War II came, Eleanor Jo had to face many new challenges. One of those challenges was doing her part for the “war effort.” Join Eleanor Jo as she learns from watching her parents’ love of life that hard work can also be fun and that as Christians, we are called by God to work hard and never give up.
