You’ll be inspired by her words of wisdom as she shares the top habits in her household that were effective, as well as a few parenting changes she would make if she could do it all again!

BONNI GREINER is married to Nevin and is the mother of 8 adult children and 14 grandchildren. She was raised a Jew in the metropolitan Philadelphia area. She fell in love with and married Nevin, who she met in college. After marriage, she moved to his family’s hog farm as a new Christian and wife. Bonni had never tasted pork products and had no knowledge of farm life or Christianity. She quickly became a distinguished motivational speaker for women’s groups and is passionate about helping younger moms enjoy their roles as wives and mothers.
