Episode 8 | How to Build a Healthy Family with Faith

Do you feel weary from the pressure that is on us as mothers? We don't have a manual for raising children, but we know we can't succumb to the weight of the world on our shoulders. In this episode, I will share resources and, in hindsight, the seeds I sowed that in the time were unseen but are now reaping the benefits. 

 

"Let me tell you, when there is a problem in our household, oh boy, you better watch out because we come together, and we stick together through thick and thin.

We didn't know what we were doing, but God did."

- Camille McIntyre
