Great mom duo!

I really appreciate the topics that Alana and Amber cover and they are a fantastic duo on this podcast. They are always so full of life when they are talking. Their cheerfulness, funny antics, genuine hearts for women and zeal for life definitely shine through in their episodes.

So encouraging!

Listening to this while I’m in the thick of motherhood has been such a blessing! I’ve spent years struggling to force my life to work around pursuing my passions, but things always shift and it ends up not being the right time. This podcast is constantly reminding me that it’s okay that right now isn’t my time. My time will come, I just have to stay the course and continue to find small moments for myself. I put this on while I’m folding laundry or washing dishes and it reminds me that there is so much waiting for me on the other side of this hill, so it’s okay to just take a breath and enjoy the climb!
