Amazing Values and Focused Family

It's great to hear the boys and balancing act that is required to balance a healthy Catholic family while homeschooling, zero based budgeting, active in Boy Scouts (or Cub Scouts for us), and being active in your parish. This podcast fits our family as well, and it helps to hear the methods that have helped in all these situations. Thank you!
