You Don’t Have to Do All the Things: A special holiday episode with Melissa Camara Wilkins [Episode 13]
The holidays are here and if, like us, you are feeling just a *little* behind, grab a giant cup of coffee or tea and curl up with this episode! The sisters are joined by Melissa Camara Wilkins, mama of six, writer, homeschooler, and the sisters’ favorite resource for living simply and authentically.
Listen as Melissa shares two questions she asks herself and her family each season to bring joy instead of overwhelm, and as Melissa, Cait, and Kara share their favorite EASY traditions.
Don’t freak out sisters- you’ve got this season!
