Welcome to
Our Modern Heritage: The NEW Home & Family Culture Podcast

I started this show to explore what it takes to have an intentional family culture! So far, I have learned that it takes getting clear on your collective and united vision, values, and traditions that create your family identity, and legacy.

About me and my podcast

Hey, I'm Jodi, a homeschool mom to four young kids! I started this show to explore what makes a family thrive and found that our family culture is the foundation of a successful family.
