Grateful

Thank you God for my friends from LONG ago who are using their years of experience as parents to help others. Little did I know that when Val and I were college roommates, I’d be listening to their podcast as I seek to be the Mom that God desires. It’s hard work and I can’t to it late! Thanks, friends! I’m enjoying and learning a lot from you. 🙏
