    Satellite Sisters Mother's Day Special: We share your Mother's Day messages and meet Julie's daughter-in-law Vera

    On today's Mother's Day Special, we have a two-parter.

    In Part One, Liz and Lian share all of the Mother's Day messages you posted on the Satellite Sisters Facebook Group.  Thanks to all who shared with us there.

    In Part Two, we interview Julie's daughter-in-law Vera Ogorodnikova.  Vera is raising her three children in Dallas, Texas but she grew up in Kyrgystan, a former Soviet republic.  They did not have Mother's Day there, so she's really get to love the whole Mother's Day concept.

    Plus, an update from Monica on her new job search and our own remembrances of our mother.

Lian tells it like it is.

THIS is the real college process for real kids. Lian is very candid, shares current information, great resources and helped me to keep my sense of humor throughout the very stressful college visit,application, acceptance/rejection/ commitment process.
I'm still listening since I have one college freshman and one high school senior.
It's always something. It's like having a good honest friend talk you through it!

So Much Fun!!!

I love listening to Lian talk about her life, family, trials, triumphs, and adventures. Her wit and down-to-earth chat entertains me and makes me feel like I'm her personal friend. I look forward to her podcast each week. Listen! You won't be disappointed, I promise!!!

Lian Brings It!

Lian used to do this show in a house closet! Leaf blowers anyone?
And, she alone, kept and still keeps me interested for the fastest 30-60 minutes around.

And, may I add she she has one of the best laughs that always lifts me up.

Do yourself a favor and check out her show.
