Thanks for listening and watching!

I truly love to chat with homeschool moms of faith. If you are a new homeschooler I certainly hope you’ve found Heather’s words about Christian women and body image encouraging. Be sure to check out some of my other homeschool podcasts as well.

That’s what homeschool moms do – we help one another!

Until next time…happy homeschooling.
