Customer Reviews

So helpful!

I LOVE this podcast. So user friendly. I've learned so much that I can actually put to use immediately in my home. Melissa explains things in a manner that I can easily understand & implement. It challenges me to try new things. I like that its about 30 minutes an episode as well. I listen as I exercise in the mornings before the kids are up. Keep up the good work!

Love Pioneering Today Podcasts!!!

I have an hour commute twice daily and I look forward to spending that time learning from Melissa. I’ve listened to every episode and am now repeating episodes and learning things I missed!! I appreciate all that is shared through this podcast. Keep the episodes coming!! Thank you!

Uplifting, A Little Bit Of Everything

I have no idea how I haven’t heard of Melissa sooner! I recently discovered her podcast and am just in love with all of the episodes I’ve listened to. My family and I live in rural Iowa, and have family focus on Jesus, health and doing things a more natural and old fashioned way and Melissa’s podcast episodes speak to all of those things! I love all of the tips and tricks I’ve learned and now have both of her books on my Amazon Wishlist :) thank you, Melissa for sharing all of this wonderful information on homesteading and sticking to your roots :)
