FoC 017: Homeschooling, Wheelchairs, and Babies in Backyards with Rebecca Frech


We have been wanting to chat with Rebecca Frech for ages! Rebecca is a Catholic mama with seven kids and the author of popular homeschooling book Teaching in Your Tiara: A Homeschooling Book for the Rest of Us. She blogs at Shoved to Them. She’s also beginning a new exciting endeavor in radio: The Visitation Project.

Homeschooling, insurance battles, Rebecca’s awesome daughter Ella, and community are a few of the things we cover–and we talk way longer than we meant to!

We highly recommend Teaching in Your Tiara. It’s the perfect read for anyone considering homeschooling.

  1. I just wanted to let you know what an unbelievable blessing you both are to me through your podcast. Tyler Blanski called your blogs and podcast a “ministry” and I sincerely hope you know how true that is. I don’t know if you intended for them to be that, but it has been a source of such joy and encouragement for me as a young Catholic mom.

    God is absolutely working through Fountains of Carrots!

    I’ll stop geeking out now, but couldn’t help but thank you both.
    And yes, I let iTunes know this 🙂

    1. Aww, thank you so much Lenora that is so encouraging to hear. We really appreciate you listening and it is the goal of this podcast to make it feel like you’ve got friends in your kitchen hanging out with you, so we’re glad it feels that way! Thanks again for your kind words 🙂

  2. I grew up in (Ontario) Canada..and we call pill bugs/rollie pollies “potato bugs.” We had a lot in my yard and I remember my friend loved playing with them too when she was little. Of all the great things you talked about I somehow chose to comment on the bug part… 😀
