Episode #025 with Amy RobertsFinding Joy in Loss — and Homemaking Hacks   Head to to see all the Show Notes & Awesome Quotes that we collected for you!   I am going to be really honest with you…this interview is going to make you laugh and make you cry. Amy and I are real life friends, so we’ve talked together about her story before. She is a mom of ten kids and has some incredible tips on home management. So, I really want you to listen through to get to that segment. However, this interview has two parts. We talk about her experience losing her sweet, daughter Emily, as well as talk about her amazing advice for making. Here on the Simply Joyful Podcast, I don’t want to ever pretend that life is always hunky-dory. It’s not. Life on this side of heaven is sometimes filled with tragedy and deep sadness. I’m pretty sure that every mother will agree that losing a child is her greatest fear. There may even be listeners who have walked this same road as Amy. To you, know I wish I could sit with you and hug you and hear your story. I really don’t want you to miss all that God has done in Amy’s life since losing Emily. She has so much encouragement for us. We talk about fear, and about the joy that she still has. I cannot wait for you to hear this episode–I know that you are going to be blessed!   ON A SIMPLY JOYFUL NOTE… Amy shares a simple way that she adds joy to her life, and I love her answer. It's such a great reminder to all us moms. Slow down. Take the time to smile at your children and look at them. Listen to what it is that they are telling you—even if it’s something that doesn’t really matter, it’s their thing. Drink that extra cup of coffee. Sit just a little bit longer with your kids.   IN THIS EPISODE… Grab your favorite drink and settle in—you are going to LOVE this episode!    ***Check out the SHOW NOTES to see all the great highlights, quotes, and links!***     BOOKS MENTIONED… Home Management for the Homeschool Mom Large Family Homeschooling  Homeschool Basics     HELP SUPPORT THE SIMPLY JOYFUL PODCAST!
