Love this podcast!
So happy to have stumbled across this podcast. Loving every episode- so many great actionable tips to create a values-driven family culture.
Life on Purpose!
I’m pumped about the incredible wisdom that the Amici’s share on this podcast. Their practical tips AND LIVED EXPERIENCE has enabled us to think more clearly about the direction our family is going and, added bonus, has brought me and my husband CLOSER. So often I hear people say they wish their families were closer or view life like it just happens and you just live through it (like the teen years). Listening to this podcast ensures me that there is a better way. We’ve seen the effects first hand in our own family!
