Happy Birthday, Missouri!

In honor of Missouri’s Bicentenniel here is a “sneak peak” at the beautiful illustrations in Faith and Finley Tour Missouri! Thank you Gage Becker for making our home state picture book come to life.

Missouri became the 24th state on August 10, 1821. Have you ever visited the “Show-Me” state?

Check out these famous Missourians!

  • Laura Ingalls Wilder
  • George Washington Carver
  • Mark Twain
  • Maya Angelou
  • Harry S. Truman
  • Ginger Rogers
  • Chuck Berry
  • Walter Cronkite
  • Thomas Hart Benton
  • Sheryl Crow
  • Eminem
  • John Goodman
  • Ellie Kemper
  • Jon Hamm
  • Kathleen Turner

Winston Churchill delivered his famous, “Iron Curtain” speech at Westminster College in Fulton, MO. Pretty cool, eh? The Show-Me state is also “unofficially” known as the Cave State. Did you know there are over 6,000 of them? The Pony Express, Lewis and Clark museum, Laura Ingalls Wilder, the Gateway Arch National Park, great food, music, and kind folks–these are varied highlights in my book for the Missouri fans!

Outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy a variety of activities with 91 state parks and 6 National parks (to stamp off in your National Park Passport book). Lakes, rivers, streams, and trails splatter our state! There are so many places in my home state that I still need to visit.🤍

Don’t just fly over Missouri. Come and stay a while (let me know if you visit the Branson area). Visiting other states is a joy to me; particularly mountainous regions (with low humidity ;-). But I’ll always be proud to call Missouri home. 🤍

Have faith 💚

Success! You're on the list.
