Join hosts Nancy Reid & Lisa Smith, the mother-daughter travel team and publishers of Big Blend Radio & TV Magazine and Park & Travel Magazine, for Big Blend Radio with journalist and author Cheryl Stritzel McCarthy who discusses her newly released memoir, “Many Hands Make Light Work.” 

How can we raise children and teens who are capable, confident, and accepting of others? “Many Hands Make Light Work: A Memoir” features the rollicking true story of a family of nine children growing up in a Midwest college town during the turbulent ‘60s and ‘70s — a family that

championed diversity and inclusion long before such concepts became cultural flashpoints. The book offers a template for building functional families under challenging circumstances, while remaining a winsome memoir of a Heartland childhood unlike any other.

Featured music is “Stepping Stones” by Kimia Penton. Thanks to JKS Communications for sponsoring this episode.
