“I don’t care what my kids end up doing with their life, as long as they always feel that their place in our family is important.”

I’m so happy to share with you a chat with my dear friends Kelli and Kristi, twin sisters who grew up with 9 siblings, raising families of their own down the street from each other and within 3 miles of 7 of those siblings (one even next door to their parents)!

We got tears flowing from each of them for various reasons throughout our chat, I love their willingness to be vulnerable and share their hearts in order to bless all of us.

Growing up with Love

Listen to the episode here or pull it up on iTunes by searching Beyond Good Intentions:

I met them through blogging 7 years ago, and I’ve been grateful for their friendship over the years, and they’ve got some parenting GOLD to share with you today!

HIGHLIGHTS: Teen fist fights, infertility, adoption, life threatening experiences, that’s just the tip of the iceberg with todays episode. We spoke about them being a brat to their mom but now a best friend, the shame game, technology, the birds and the bee’s, pornography, over-scheduling, we even talked about the wonderful community that social media can be if we let it.
