What an all inclusive, thoughtful and brilliant parenting podcast!
I love listening to you share your parenting and marriage experiences. You are so relatable, funny, smart, forgiving, honest, thoughtful and humble in your presentation and discussions.
Kudos to you and David! Thank you for creating an open minded and amazing podcast for real life parents and couples. 💛
Like listening to friends
I work from home with three kids and often feel lonely and isolated (though I do have friends and a great husband, family, and church family). The days are just long, with not a lot of adult interaction. This podcast feels like a fun, encouraging, "we are right there with you in the struggle," convo with friends. Not only do David and Rachael give some good advice, but they are also open about their failures and the hard parts of parenting, which I love. I could be friends with these people. They don't speak from a place of authority, but more as friends walking beside you ... understanding. Lighthearted, easy listening.
Feel like they’re in it with me
Thoughtful, helpful and humorous! It seems like we’re sitting at the table together discussing the joys, woes and confusing bits of parenting and marriage. It’s nice to know I’m not alone in this journey, and I look forward to each new episode.
