Two Moms on Different Sides of the Same Coin

Talking Mom2Mom is a rest stop for moms traveling the homeschool road. Your hosts, Richele and Lindsey, are two homeschool moms in different seasons of life. Lindsey has 6 children all 8 and younger while Richele has 4 children who are all 8 and older. The perfect pair to offer each other (and you!) perspective, encouragement, and a dose of reality where needed. While Lindsey is changing diapers and sweeping up the crumbs, Richele is learning about dual enrollment and wondering what on earth her preteen daughter is doing in the bathroom for so long. Join them as they share their trials, victories, and all the laughs in between.

Listen in for topics ranging from managing your home and homeschool with multiple ages, marriage over the years, raising Godly young girls and boys, leaning on the Lord at all times, and so much more!
