The First Christmas Family with Michelle Fletcher

The First Christmas with Michelle Fletcher
Michelle Fletcher is interviewed regularly for the Treasuring Mothers podcast. She is a social worker, who talks about Family Matters.

A long journey will often start a new life in another place. And that’s what happened to Mary and Joseph. We make it sound as pretty as a picture, every Christmas. But it wasn’t all snow and starry skies for the young couple.

Hear about the scope of their problems in this eye-opening interview about the first Christmas family, from a social worker’s perspective:

  • Teenage mother
  • Long trip overland during 3rd trimester
  • No home
  • No food
  • Inexperienced parents
  • No extended family to help
  • Unsavoury birthing place
  • And more!

GUEST: Michelle Fletcher
HOST: Jenny Baxter

This interview was first heard on Hobart’s ultra106five.
