Hey Friends! Today my 18 year-old son, Jonah is with me to talk about his journey through the college preparation, application, and acceptance process.

Though I couldn't have planned it like this, today's podcast interview turns out to be especially timely. I'm sure you would agree: This world is feeling very uncertain right now. The Coronavirus is continuing to spread, causing schools and business to close down, travel and other events to be cancelled, our economy to tank, and a whole lot of anxiety for people on a whole lot of levels.

Talking about the importance of protecting boys from internet pornography. With a special book giveaway! If you only listen to ONE Boy Mom Podcast, I hope it is this one. There may be no more important topic for mothers of boys to listen to than this. We are raising sons in a world unlike the one we grew up in.

Lest you think I have quit cooking altogether, I thought it was time for a recipe post! And not just any recipe...this is sooooo good. You should plan to make it, like, tonight. You might remember that recently I was in Southern California visiting my son at Westmont College, and making the rounds at friends' homes. It was so much fun!
