    Middle of the Night Musings: Here's What I Know

    When all the Things converge--a bad mood, a lack of sleep, a dog that vomits, children who didn't do their homework--Rachel rises (though, not by choice) in the middle of the night to muse and meet with the Lord, reminding herself (and hopefully, you) that you are never alone.

Can’t wait for the next one!

After listening to the first episode, I was sad when it ended. What a blessing this will be to me. Thank you for taking the time to share you hearts and your encouragement!

Podcast LOVE!!

Daisy and Rachel are encouraging and real. I’m a 20+ year homeschooler and highly recommend this podcast to all parents, especially new and experienced home educators. I loved episode 1, hearing about their backgrounds and reasons for home schooling. Listening lifted my weary spirit and point me back to Jesus.
