Encouragement for every mom

Love this podcast - easy to listen too, but also super grounded in the word. Very relatable and encouraging at the same time. Seriously feels like sitting down with a cup of coffee and talking life, God, and parenting with a dear friend.

I have been so blessed by this podcast, especially the episode about being a stress free homeschool mom. I can’t thank you enough.

Bite-sized bits of wisdom!

I really enjoy this podcast. The episodes are simple, short, and super practical. But they are not shallow! Some great bite-sized bits of wisdom here. There is just the right amount of information for me to be able to digest it in a snippet of time while folding laundry or walking, and then actually apply it. Amy presents good and beautiful ideas but she is super relatable and not fussy.
