Can you find pleasure in your spouse again? So much of this starts with communication and we drop as many tools as possible in this episode. Please do not skip this one if your marriage is struggling!

    Today's episode is very different ... We invite comedian Andrew Stanley on the show to ask all the questions we want to know from an up and coming star. What did his parents think about leaving his career and pursuing comedy? What is the back of a comedy club really like? What in the world is a Tinkle Ferret? All that and so ... so much more are in the hilarious episode of Mom's Unscripted.

Love, love, love

So much wisdom is being shared here in a very non-threatening way. I love how in episode 1 Leeana Tankersley says she is extra good at allowing screen time. 😆😆😆. That resonated with me. I want my kids to stick with the 1 hour a day, but it rarely actually happens with one child in particular. Such a battle. Anyhow, I love the camaraderie between the hosts and the “me too” moments from each of the episodes I have heard.

Great discussions for moms

From a mother of two special needs children

Thank you so much for your episode on raising special needs children. It is such a hard lonely path. Bringing awareness to this topic is so important. The part of guilt is so true! Please bring more episodes on this topic and encourage your MOPS leadership to open their hearts and doors to mamas whose children need extra love.
