So, who is Kari Anderson?
I'm a happy mother of seven, yes, seven children, who are all grown up now and some with families of their own. I thoroughly enjoyed homeschooling all of them up until college, so with time now on my hands I've started this business selling natural pearls on this website and to private clients.
God has blessed us to be able to travel to many places around the world. Learn more about me in the social links in the right hand column.
My Family (Yes, we all love books!)
I live on a lovely, small, grass fed sheep farm in southeastern Iowa, not far from the mighty Mississippi River. I'm helping my daughter, Sarah, take care of the sheep and farm. My job is mostly to clean the barn which I love doing. I'm getting pretty good with a pitch fork!

My husband and sons built our home and yes, it is bigger than our barn and has four floors!
My husband, Mark, has developed this very helpful website full of Grassfed Recipes and also pastors the amazing Church of the Living Water here in Muscatine, Iowa. Our church is so much fun that folks hang around for a long time after the services chatting and enjoying one another.
I'm very thankful for Solo Build It, without this amazing website program I would not have a pearl business today.
My business would not be successful if I did not have integrity when dealing with my customers. I hope that learning more about me will build confidence in your eyes.
“Integrity is not a given factor in everyone’s life. It is a result of self-discipline, inner trust, and a decision to be relentlessly honest in all situations in our lives.” - John C. Maxwell
