Leah Heffner talks with Amy Rienow about what her day looks like as a homeschooling mama to 7 kiddos while partnering with her husband in a ministry, Visionary Family, which has grown out of their own story. We talk Paris and cathedrals. And we talk about what it means to have a generational impact (and even how the cathedrals that took generations to build are a metaphor for that!). Amy shares tons of wisdom and heart on encouraging sibling relationships among our children. And today, we’re talking gifts and home management hacks.

A Big Shout Out to This Month’s Sponsor
I love having truth look me in the face each day. There are so many messages of where I’m falling short and what I need to fix getting thrust at me all day long so I want to cling to truth. One way I do that is with coffee mugs. The coffee mugs in my cupboard say ‘blessed mama’ ‘blessed wife’ Reminders that even in the messy, sticky, and hard parts of marriage and mother hood, I am so very blessed.
