24. Three Things We've Learned from Laura Ingalls Wilder
#24. My daughter, Chloe and I have a ton of things in common, but one of the things that I love most is that we both adore the Little House on the Prairie books by Laura Ingalls Wilder.
From Laura‘s courage and sass to Pa’s fiddle to Ma’s proper ways to the family dog named Jack, there’s something about America’s favorite pioneer family that brings a sense of simple joy to our lives.
Chloe and I have learned so much from Laura Ingalls Wilder and though it was hard to narrow it down, today we are sharing our three favorite things that we’ve learned from the Little House books.
Cue the music of Pa’s fiddle as you close your eyes and visual the Ingalls family rolling across the prairie in their wagon. You’re sure to enjoy this sweet episode!

23. Growing Up Amish
#23. Bonnets, beards, horses and buggies. Let’s be honest, for most of us, that’s about all we know of the Amish culture. Even for me personally, growing up in an area that was full of Amish and Mennonite people, I actually knew very little about what things looked like inside of their community.
That was… until an Amish gentleman started working on my dad’s farm. Slowly, but surely our families began to learn more about each other and slowly but surely, our families formed an unbreakable bond.
Today Mary Yoder, the mama of that family is one of my dearest friends. She’s a beautiful soul and when you look in her eyes you can actually see the joy of Jesus shining through. Those shining eyes of hers have been on quite a journey, a life transformation actually and she’s about to share it all with you.
Whether you think you know a lot about the Amish culture or you have no idea what it’s all about but you’re curious to know more, this episode is one that will have you on the edge of your seat.
Prepare to be clinging to every word as Mary shares her story, explaining in detail how she grew up Amish, got married and had six children, then alongside her husband made the decision to leave the Amish community.

22. How to Discipline Your Children God's Way *Bonus Ep*
#22. We recently walked through a situation in our family that required all of us sitting down for a family meeting and discussing at length how we were going to handle it.
Two of our three kiddos made the choice to disobey guidelines that my husband and I had laid out. As parents, we give our children rules to follow because we LOVE them and to PROTECT them, much like how God, the Good Father has laid out rules for his children to follow.
The incredible thing is that God had recently revealed to me His method of when, why and how to discipline children. It was the roadmap that my husband and I needed to navigate this recent situation with our kids in a wisdom-filled and loving way.
Tune in as we dive into the first example of God's discipline and explore how we, as parents can model the Good Father's example.
