Becky Greene is wife to husband Steve and mother to their 5 children, all of whom she's homeschooled from the beginning without ever turning to medication. A convert from agnostic feminism, she's written and presented on everything from authentic femininity, Natural Family Planning, and the Theology of the Body, to childrearing, motherhood, and homeschooling, for over a decade. When she's not attempting to get dinner on the table or summoning her children back to their math assignments, she can be found pulling her hair out over mismatched socks, sharp Legos on the floor, and temper tantrums about the toothpaste being too spicy. She and her husband also have a podcast entitled The Catholic Conversation, which is available on all major podcast platforms.
