Homesteading may look like a dream life online, but in reality it comes with a lot of dedication, learning as you go, and picking yourself back up when things go wrong. 
    On top of that, Rachel gives a sleep update. She discusses Finn’s new routine and what has changed in life since getting more sleep (hint: she is feeling much more creative again!). By the end of the episode, you will come away knowing that we may put a lot of work into our families and home life, but it is always worth it. The seasons of life will ebb and flow, but the love there is always a constant.

Don’t understand the negative reviews

Your podcasts are always so aligned with me and where I am. Been listening for years, through light and dark times. After all this time, I am bothered that this episode is allegedly your first parenting experience with big emotions towards your daughter. I appreciate your bravery in sharing but do not appreciate the facade. -a therapist

Love you so much! Just wanted to thank you for this episode. I have been curious about this for a few years and wondered about “the details”. Leah is one lucky girl to have you as a mom, I wish I had grown up the way you are raising her 💖
