A New Podcast For Busy Moms | AMPlify Your Life Episode 1

Sometimes, you just have to do it.

You can’t think too much, or plan too much or fear too much.

Just do it.

I do this quite a bit, actually.

And yet there are so many times I hold off on doing things I know I should because I’m waiting.

On the perfect moment.

The perfect feeling.

The ideal time.

Or the money to reveal itself.

I get tired of that, don’t you?

Introducing: AMPlify Your Life, a podcast for busy moms by The Abundant Mama Project.

What is AMPlify Your Life?

A podcast for busy moms.

AMP is the nickname that has been affectionally given to my program to help you Become an Abundant Mama.

And it just works. AMP is who we are and so it makes sense to amplify that message to the world.

I’ll be going into so many different and new topics related to being a busy, modern mother.

We’re juggling a lot. We need refreshing resources to cope and manage our busy lives.

That may mean I’ll talk about time management — which is the topic this week.

Each episode will be inspiring. And fairly short.

And, honestly, that’s all I’m going to promise. You will be inspired — to find your happy place. Each week there might be an inspiring interview with other Abundant Mamas. There might be inspiring poetry. There might be inspiring quotes. There might be inspiring rants. Who knows.

A funny story, first, though:

When I was a child, I spent most of my days at my grandmother’s house. For a while we lived with her and even when we didn’t I still think back to my childhood as being at her house.

She had an old tape recorder and I spent HOURS recording stories on that thing.


I recently played those tapes — yes, I still have them — for my daughters who rolled on the floor with the goofiness of my words.

I tell you this story because it’s insight. Insight that podcasting and talking and sharing my words with the world has always been inside of me.

Today, I’m releasing them for you to hear. Let them wash over you and bring ease.

When should you use this podcast?

  • Listen while doing the dishes.
  • Listen while folding laundry.

  1. Loved this!! I was touched by your words – “letting all of the day’s worries and fears wash away.” I want to create moments like those for my kids as they grow so that our family time is a safe place for them. A time when they can let go of their insecurities, etc. Thank you. Plus, you have a great voice for this stuff!!

    • Thanks, Erica! So thankful you are here, reading. You will create those kinds of moments. Absolutely. Oh, and thanks for the voice complement. I did test my voice with a few people before going for it. LOL

  2. Great listening to you while I was doing house work and very inspiring… I´m following you from a place quite far away from you…Uruguay… way down south!

  3. LOVE that you are doing a podcast now! Love your posts. This is gonna be great :) I have also been recording a podcast since January called Sippin’ Social Hour :) We say it’s your POWER HOUR before HAPPY HOUR! Thanks so much for doing this. We need more women podcasting! xo

  4. I can’t hear the podcast on my apple products, is there anyway you could record them in a compatible format?

    • I record on a Mac and I tested on an iPad so you should be able to hear … anyone else having trouble?

  5. Loved it! For some reason, I’m not getting an email when you post a new blog post — I used to get an email with the blog post — I have no idea what happened, but I’m bummed. In any event, I noticed that I hadn’t been getting these emails and came over here to discover, much to my delight – a few days worth of goodies! Yay! The podcast was perfect! I listened while I worked. It wasn’t too long. It included a lot of helpful hints. And I liked how you included links to resources as well as the intention written out so that it works for people who learn either by ear or by sight/reading. Great job, Shawn!!

    • Amy, are you signed up for my weekly emails? If not, that’s how you can get them delivered by email now. They automatically go out to that list. Let me know.

  6. What a great idea and great way to jump start any mama’s day! I really need to work on getting up early. When I do it does make a difference! Also, might I suggest one other thing to add to the day besides that special fun time? Maybe together as a family you can think of one act of service to do for the day. It is hard to have a bad day when you are helping others :) Thanks again for sharing!

    • Thanks, Julie! I would have done it sooner but the technical stuff always blocks me. I’m a writer through-and-through. :)

  7. Loved folding laundry and listening to you! Miss you and I’m so excited you are venturing into a new media. Can’t wait to hear more.

  8. Shawn!!!! I really needed this today. Thank you for the inspiration, great ideas and beautiful words. I am looking forward to listening to more.

  9. I loved it :)

    The idea of teaching the kids that you have that thing (work) that is special to you, and that they know to respect that time, is a good thing for me to mull over and consider. Even though my work is away from the home, I still need some “me” time here and there, and I can see how it would be a good thing to model for our kids, so that they can learn to be okay with having “their” time as well…I just haven’t implemented anything, and I think I’d like to try! Most of my “me” time is after they go down, or before they wake up, which on most days is just fine…and honestly, during the work week it seems important for us to be together in those hours where we can be. But I’m thinking on the weekends, or on days when we are all together all day…that I’m going to start plugging in a “me” / “self-care” period of time for us all to use as we wish. If any tips come to mind let me know Shawn!

  10. Hi Shawn, just wanted to say I LOVE that you have started a podcast – I was able to listen to your voice while putting away the laundry! Podcasts are my new favourite way to digest information over the internet – because I find I absorb so much more when I am listening! …and so I’m super-glad I can now add AMPlify your life to my list! Just a quick question as to whether or not I will be able to subscribe to your podcasts through itunes? Our internet is rubbish at the moment and when I use itunes I’m able to download and save them and then listen when I have a chance! I did a quick search but couldn’t find anything. Anyway, super-excited that you have this new way to spread your message! Hana xo

    • Working on how to get them on iTunes — and still be able to keep them on the site. Let me see what we can do!
