Episode Five :: Rachel Turiel

by eringoodman on March 15, 2012

When I visit Rachel Turiel’s beautiful blog, 6512 and Growing, I never know if I will laugh or cry (or both) but I always know that I will be moved deep within my soul.

Rachel’s gorgeous words and photos inspire me to keep writing, to keep moving forward towards my homesteading dreams, and to remember to put all the project lists aside and savor the sweet and tender moments with my children.

In this show, Rachel and I talk homeschooling, homesteading and hunting. (And road kill, of course.) We also talk overwhelm, small spaces, the early years of parenting and why it is so important to have time away from our children.

This show was recorded in February, 2012 and is about 45 minutes long.
