It's our inaugural podcast! Sometimes we just need to listen to a conversation with our friends or how about some inspiring moms? That's our goal for the EEN Moms Talk podcast, to talk to moms about their paths to caring for God's creation. For the first podcast though we thought it was important to get to know more about the Evangelical Environmental Network (EEN). So our first Episode is a conversation with Mitch Hescox, President of EEN.
