Parenting young children is an all-consuming task that can make you feel disconnected and, honestly, a bit fragmented. But having kids shouldn't mean you rarely get to complete a conversation with a friend! In this witty, encouraging book, Tracey Bianchi shows us how to
cultivate deeper friendships that challenge us to grow
create healthy, life-giving rhythms for our families
connect and give back to the wider world beyond our doors
If you've ever sat back exasperated and thought, "There has got to be a better way to do this mothering thing," then let this conversation with Tracey on friendship, connection, and the rhythms of our lives begin to shape your heart.
