Amazing Woman in Ag: Rebecca

Today, we are introducing a special woman in ag to all of our readers out there. Rebecca Crownover is joining us here on as a guest blogger AND she is an author of two books that we have in our shop.

We asked Rebecca to tell us a little more about herself. So, who is Rebecca Crownover?

By: Rebecca Crownover

Three categories sum it up: Single Mom, Farmer, and Children's Book Author. I have been in farming my entire life. My grandfather was a farmer, whom I worked for in my teenage years in my tiny hometown of Sunray, TX. Ultimately after a detour to college and doing some technology consulting, I ended up marrying a farmer and moving back to my roots in 2003. My husband and I built up our farming business alongside his family and in 2009, tragedy struck when he passed unexpectedly from an ATV accident. We had a beautiful daughter who was 2 years old at the time. Since 2009, I have continued to work with my in-laws as a partner and owner in our farm while raising my precious daughter as a single mom and only parent. In 2012, God placed on my heart a children's book to help other children with the loss of a parent and to use our story to do so. The result of God's vision was, My Daddy Is In Heaven With Jesus, an award-winning children's book that has helped comfort a number a children across the country who have lost a parent. This is a book I will promote the rest of my life and a true testament of God using our story to help others through their loss. 


Rebecca and her daughter.

In 2013, I decided to expand my author title into a series of books to reach a broader audience that would focus on educating and inspiring children through farming. In December 2013, Texas Farm Girl hit the market and has been a big hit among children wanting to know more about farming. Two more Texas Farm Girl books are expected to hit shelves later this year. 

I am honored that is now officially carrying both of these books in their online store. To learn more and connect with me on social media, visit: and

I enjoyed your is inspiring! In my next life I'm going to be a farmgirl. I'm 71 & delight in settling to be a retired counselor, wannabe farmgirl, mother of 2, grandmother of 5, happy gardener, lover of true crime, and importantly, wife of a retired Navy captain. Thank you for writing children's books.
Sincerely, a fan
