I KNOW it sounds crazy. How on earth can washing dirty clothes and linens be a beautiful experience? And why would we even want it to be beautiful?

So we invited Gretchen to join us on Power of Moms Radio to talk about this idea more in depth. When our homes are a mess, it feels impossible to function.
