The familiar voice our family loves

So my husband and I started listening about 2 years ago and have been hooked since! Our boys ages 10 & 5 also find this podcast interesting.... They’ve already had a couple side hustles including lemonade stands and making bracelets.... I am pretty sure Chris was a big reason behind this. ❤️
