Heather's goal is to equip parents in the pursuit of intentional parenting.  She knows learning is really fun and wants others to get that too!  Her wants to raise world changers who passionately love God, love others, and delight in the adventure of learning.  She recently created a resource you'll love for your boys on the topic of chivalry!

What we chat about:

  • Why we don't want to raise a "typical boy"
  • The importance of parenting with an eye to the future
  • Why it is imperative that you teach your children to follow you

This girl is just so much fun! She led out and started something years ago the rest of us (and the rest of her neighborhood) "meant" to do and just never found the time for.  Well, once Kristin prioritized hospitality and getting to know her neighbors, lives started being impacted in a big way.  You're going to learn so many practical hospitality tips that prove, once again, that having people over doesn't have to freak you out.  Friendly warning: you're probably going to want a picnic table at the end of this episode.

What we chat about:

  • The dos and don'ts of parenting teens
  • How and why Kristin became a front yard person
  • Some amazing hospitality hacks you'll want to try

In this Episode we discover Rebecca is kind of a big deal in the decorating world. We also know she doesn't like mid-century decor but she doesn't mind if YOU do. I talk about a decorating fail I had where a sweet sentiment turned inappropriate in an instant.

I enjoy buying things off Craigslist and Rebecca sometimes takes things out of dumpsters.  Rebecca loves white couches and gets quite distraught at the thought of them ever going out of style.  Please consider sending her an encouraging message if you think of it.  She is bracing herself for a rough season.

Also, you'll be blessed to hear us try to sort out the meanings of multiple words (such as Cape and Cod) and reach deep into our brains to find the right words we are TRYING to say.  We have basically put our intellect on display for you.  

You are quite welcome. And happy decorating.
