What a few of our amazing listeners are saying… 

“I just wanted to let you know I am enjoying the podcast so incredibly much for so many reasons! I have really enjoyed learning more about special needs families and the struggles and victories in all of your lives. Not being a special needs parent I have found that I still find so much in every episode that I can relate to in the world of mothering, womanhood, and/or as a Christian. I appreciate how raw and honest all 3 of you are.”
- Jordan
