I talk often on this podcast about the beauty of homemaking, but there are certainly times when we can fall into a slump as homemakers. I’m joined by two Mennonite homemakers in this episode, Megan and Jayna, to discuss what we love about homemaking, what is challenging, and how we navigate the difficult seasons of this worthy calling. If you could use fresh ideas and inspiration to continue creating beauty and comfort in your home, join us for this conversation!

Nearly every mother experiences fear throughout her parenting journey. As Jennifer and I discuss in this episode, there are often new fears that emerge at every stage of parenthood. We may fear failing our kids or fear for their safety, but the reality is that fear creates a suffocating environment in our homes. As a long-time homeschooling mother of seven, Jennifer shares her journey of recognizing the impact of fear on her family and how she used the power of story to overcome it. This is such a rich, grace-filled conversation meant to encourage you as you fight fear and embrace joy in your mothering.
As a mother of seven, I get so many questions about all the baby things: feeding, sleeping, babywearing, bonding, navigating transitions, and more. I am so excited to bring fellow mother of seven, Ariel Tyson, on the podcast to chat about the baby days. We both share a love for the early newborn days, and we dive into how we approach the newborn stage in a way that allows us to enjoy it. We also talk beyond the newborn stage and address some of the transitions that come as babies get older. May this discussion encourage you in your motherhood and give you some practical ideas to implement in your own home.
