Welcome back to the second episode of my brand new podcast: The Homemaking Foundations Podcast –Where we give you the tools, inspiration, and encouragement you need to craft a Gospel-Centered Home. In case you missed it, you can listen in to episode #1 here: What Does it Mean to be a Homemaker?
I had the privilege of interviewing Katie Bennett from Embracing a Simpler Life in this inspiring episode. She is a mama of three little ones and knows what it means to juggle a full schedule and struggle with the motivation and organization of keeping a home. I walked away from interviewing her with so many ideas to implement into my own home – and I know you will find the same inspiration and practical tools from listening to this episode!

If you have been waiting to listen to my new podcast through iTunes, then please be patient! It should be coming soon. We’ve had a little snag getting our feed just right (or something – you would have to ask my husband!) and iTunes takes a while to approve a show before it shows up but it’s coming soon I promise!
And I have to apologize – in the opening part of this episode, you can hear my cats meowing in the background! I didn’t even realize it when I was recording and you will probably notice it too now that I’ve pointed it out 😉 Our kittens are LOUD and need to be fixed so we can send them outside haha.
