Bummer I love her books!

By 123Diaz - Aug 05 2019
Read more
I was so excited to see this podcast because I have several of Megs books. The very first one I listened to was about immunizations. I have 3 boys 2 of which were vaccine injured. I’m just sitting here shaking my head and laughing to myself. With her religious background you would think she wouldn’t segregate mothers with this one, but there she went and jumped right off the cliff. Very lacking and one sided. Such a shame. Oh well still love her books but definitely did not agree with her on this one. Poor taste!
