Help for those teen years

As a mom of two boys, I've loved listening to Arlene and her guests share encouragement as I don't feel like my home is always a happy one. #thestruggleisreal. I highly recommend you tune in, especially her episodes on anger and rebellious teens. Oh my!

Authentic

Arlene has excellent content; fantastic messages of hope. Perfection is not the goal. There are no boney fingers pointed at our sternum pointing out our parenting flaws.Genuine, authentic guests with messages of encouragement."You don't have to come from a happy home, to create one." All with God 's help.
