Episode 41: Building a Network When Your Children Are Small, Part II

In Episode 4 of this podcast, in August 2019, I had the delightful opportunity to interview a young Catholic mom, AnneMarie Miller, who was really struggling to build community for her children, because they are both still too young for most homeschool programs. She had some great ideas to try, and we agreed to have her back to give a progress report! So, stay tuned for Part Two of "Building a Network When Your Childre Are Small"!
