Fantastic parenting perspective

As the father of five young children this pod cast is fast becoming one of my top played pod casts. It is very insightful, entertaining and helpful in parenting perspectives. Highly recommend!

It’s also motivated my training goals to ensure I can always carry my kids to the car, no matter how big they get 😂

How to be a better person

I love this podcast and never miss an episode. Not only does it help to make me a better parent but it also helps to make me a better person. Justin and Kylie talk about topics for all age groups and I love the husband and wife perspectives. Their guests are always another wealth of information.

Just what we all need to hear

The Mother’s Day Reflection episode had me in tears multiple times. The feedback from your daughters was just so very beautiful and Kylie’s reflections said it all. Just what we all need to hear. You’ve hit the spot. ❤️
