AT HOME

This podcast is a collection of conversations about mothering, home life and education. We all homeschool our children, but we hope to offer discussions that anyone can pull up a chair to. We plan to cover topics that will range from the lighthearted and fun to the heavier ones that may include politics, faith and social issues. We hope this podcast is a place to find encouraging and thoughtful dialog. Above all, we desire provoking one another on to good things. Hebrews 10:24 Grab a cup of coffee and listen in on a conversation with Greta Eskridge, Jennifer Dees, Brianne Buskey and Kristin Rogers. Thanks for tuning in!
