Do you ever wish you had a wise mentor — someone with life experience that might pour into you and your family?
It seems like whenever I am gathered with a group of young moms, the topic of mentors come up…And while some women are blessed to have a wise mentor in their life, oftentimes I hear them say how they only WISH they had someone like that.
I would love to see more connecting between the generations, and that is something I think we can all work on — in our churches and in our communities (and in our own families!) But meanwhile, I love that I get to share a dream mentor on the Podcast today!
Chrys Howard, aka ‘2Momma’//Duck Dynasty Grandma, is with us to share some tried and true, timeless parenting wisdom, and I think you’re going to love it! Chrys has been speaking into the lives of younger women for years through a radio show and now on her awesome “Rocking it Grand” Podcast. She has also written a number of books, including co-authoring Strong and Kind, which Korie Robertson was on the Podcast to talk about in Episode 97.
Today we dive in to a list of topics that I think you’ll love! From the importance of Mom-communities, to the lost art of manners, to why traditions matter, to the value of FUN… and more! Grab a cup of tea or put on your walking shoes and join us now!

Thank you so much to this episode’s sponsor…TheGoodBook.com!!! I’m such a fan of the books we are sharing this week!! — The Big Questions Series walks kids aged 9-13 through what the Bible says about some of the big questions of life, such as ‘Why does God let bad things happen?’, ‘What happens when we die?’ and ‘How do we know Christianity is really true?’ They’re written by a Christian studies teacher and school chaplain with experience answering the big questions tweens ask. You can learn more at thegoodbook.com.
