Homewise: Building Blocks For Discerning Women

Informações:

Sinopsis

In this weekly podcast Kara Murphy talks with her husband Steve about how women can build up their families instead of tear them down. Kara and Steve share biblical wisdom they have learned through many years of marriage, parenting a large family, and homeschooling. Proverbs tells us that, "The wisest of women builds her house, but folly with her own hands tears it down." This podcast is both an encouragement and a challenge to rise above the folly that marks our culture and be HomeWise!
