Shannon, 2017 Abundant Mama

On an average day, I was always in doing mode and felt burnt out. I wasn’t sure how to implement self-care in small, everyday ways. This course helped me to do that and I treasure my daily afternoon pause to sip sone tea, do some stretches and just breath…it’s only 10 minutes but it helps.

This course has changed my outlook on life!

This course has changed my outlook on life!

Kylie, 2017 Abundant Mama

This course has changed my outlook on life! I was constantly seeing all the negatives and was grumpy lots of the time and although I didn’t like it, I was starting to accept that as who I was. The course has shown me that I CAN be the calm, fun mum that I knew I could be and has provided the tools for that. I am still a work in progress but as I’ve learnt that it’s ok to look after myself (and not feel guilty about that) I have been more grateful and less angry which has been so nice!

Carissa, 2015 Abundant Mama

When I started the Abundant Mama Program I was sad, lonely, angry, frustrated, agitated, short-tempered and jealous of others. And now I am excited, energized, eager, learning to stay calm and full of the knowledge that I can do this! I can be a calm mom who responds with loving kindness. It takes practice but I now have the tools.

I’m learning to be happier with the real me instead of fighting against her.

Jennifer D. 2015 Abundant Mama

 

I’ve learned to be grateful for my daily life. That I’m not perfect and I shouldn’t try to be. There is a way to be happy and help find the happiness in this awesome life.  I look at most everything differently.  I take pauses to just look around, to breathe, to smile, to just enjoy the moment.

I am learning to trust in myself and in others.

I am learning to trust in myself and in others.

Kristine C., 2015 Abundant Mama

One of the biggest lessons I took away from this class: Letting Go of Fear and Perfection. Ever since my first child was born, I felt the unhealthy need to do everything perfectly to prove my worth as a mother, wife, businesswoman, and person. By accepting that I Am Enough and that slowing down is not only important, but also critical to the well-being of myself and my family, I am learning to trust in myself and in others.

The biggest thing this course taught me was TRUST

The biggest thing this course taught me was TRUST

Jackie H., 2015 Abundant Mama

Trust … that I had a safe space to convey all that I did (this was a biggie
for me as I am usually so guarded). I felt very safe to share what I did. That was nice and I am so pleased I put in the effort every day. Spot on Shawn.. you get back what you put in, as with life

My relationship with my husband has benefited from this course

My relationship with my husband has benefited from this course

Tasha C., 2014 Abundant Mama

My relationship with my husband has benefited from this course by forcing me to acknowledge the importance of my needs in the big picture of taking care of everyone else’s. By doing so I was able to get a lot of stuff out that I was holding in as resentment towards my husband. We’re now in a place of understanding and mutual respect. And though thy anger is still a struggle for me it’s no where near where it was when I started. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for this course. It was exactly what I needed.

I am in a better place to handle the daily stresses

I am in a better place to handle the daily stresses

Tandy Wolters, 2014 Abundant Mama

Except for one day this week, I can’t remember the LAST time I yelled. That’s amazing! I came from a yelling house, and in the last few months before AMP, I felt like it was becoming more difficult to resist the urge to yell myself, and even if I was able to resist that urge most of the time, I still felt out of control emotionally. Immediately, with AMP, I found that I was empathizing and connecting more…but more than that, I am coming into my days with more love, patience and joy in my heart. I am in a better place to handle the daily stresses. I am happy. I am so grateful.

AMP may have just saved my relationship with my sons.

Elita W., 2014 Abundant Mama

“I am loving having to stop and think about another way we can do things rather then yelling, I still have the stamping boys when they are angry, but I have noticed I yell a lot less and think about things a little different. AMP may have just saved my relationship with my sons. Thank you so much.

My kids smile more!

My kids smile more!

Amanda W., 2014 Abundant Mama

I take life all to seriously most of the time.  I try too hard. I’ve noticed a huge improvement in this area since starting this course even though we hadn’t specifically worked on tha area to date. My kids smile more, my husband smiles more and is willing to be around and help out – without being asked sometimes!  I like to idea of play but i dont think i made space for it before. I’m starting to see AMP as decluttering for the soul. Since I love and am almost addicted to decluttering this makes the coursework even more appealing.

I feel in control now.

I feel in control now.

Jo Adamson, 2014 Abundant Mama

I was skeptical I admit but I can’t believe the sense of calm I have already, not all the time but I feel so much in control and even if I momentarily loose it like I did this morning wrestling the kids and husband out the door, I saw it coming and although haven’t quite mastered the ‘abort’ yet, I turned it around way quicker than I would have done last week!

I am crying…because I am so very grateful for you…

Angela Patton, 2013 Abundant Mama

I am crying as I type this because I am so very grateful for you, for the AMP, and everything it has done for me and my family. You have taught me how to see the joy in parenting again.

Nicole Winkler, 2013 Abundant Mama

The course has really helped me focus on what I DO have going for me, especially the intangible gifts of family and friends to support me. Focusing on the positive has allowed me to move forward for myself and get through the negative.

Veronica Lister, 2013 Abundant Mama

This course has helped me to slow down, let go of the emotion and resentment and speak with greater peace … having given myself the space to achieve it. It is a work in progress still, but very much further along than before the course.

…it was like she had a window into my soul.

Torrey Wilkens, 2013 Abundant Mama

Shawn’s writing has saved me from a dark and lonely place. Being a SAHM I have often felt like parenting was a challenge I faced alone most days but then I read Shawn’s blog and it was like she had a window into my soul. Through her, I am now connected with a wonderful group of like-minded women who support each other in nurturing ourselves and our families. It has changed my entire outlook on parenting and life in general. I begin each day choosing to be calm and peaceful.

She is truly inspirational…

Karen Skelton, 2013 Abundant Mama

Love love love Shawn’s blog! She is honest and compassionate and understands the reality of being a mom. But she also strives to be the best mom she can be every day and to give those gifts she has learned first-hand herself to the rest of us. She is truly inspirational and gives me new ideas to try out and thoughts to ponder when I need to know I am not alone in this gig of motherhood.

SnowLynn Cabral, 2013 Abundant Mama

Shawn is an amazing mother and writer who inspires us moms every day to live more abundantly and be present with our children. She has such a powerful way to her words that just wakes you up and makes you realize everything you ever wanted is right here in front of you, you just have to see it. She reminds us it is not about being perfect, but about being you, living in the moment. Her blog is uplifting, encouraging and honest.

I can relate to just about every single thing she posts.

Kelly Hershey, 2013 Abundant Mama

I particularly appreciate how Shawn’s blog focuses on your inner experience and works with making that lighter, more joyful and more intentional. We change ourselves to change the world around us — starting at home. Shawn keeps it real and personal. I can relate to just about every single thing she posts. You know when you find a cookbook author who you inherently trust, because her taste is just to your taste? So you want all of her cookbooks? It’s like that with Shawn.

Shawn has a way of calming me down when I really need it. She says exactly what I need to hear to help put things into perspective and find the good in each situation. She has helped me find peace within myself and my family. I can’t thank her enough for all she has done for us.

Hana Colmar, A Happy Adventure

I find Shawn constantly inspiring me to be more present, intentional and playful and always jump at the chance to take a course that she is running.  I find myself constantly battling the chaos that seems to be daily family life, rushing around like a madman trying to get everyone to the places they need to be, with the things they’re meant to have… and balance that with all the things that I thought family life would be about – fun and joy and laughter… Visit Hana’s Site »

Shawn is the Yoda of Mamas!

Shawn is the Yoda of Mamas!

Chantal Chan, 2013 Abundant Mama

There was my life before Shawn and my life with Shawn. I’m a first-time momma trying to juggle raising a child, my marriage and fighting to not lose myself or my mind in the process. Overwhelming…yes. Impossible… no. Before knowing Shawn I was stressed, burnt out, losing myself and generally unhappy. Then I came across her blog and my life changed. I had hope. I signed up for her Abundant Mama Project. That’s when my life truly changed. Shawn is so positive, inspiring and down to earth. The best part is she keeps it real. Now I am in the process of finding my inner peace and creating a more peaceful home for my family. I can honestly say it’s working. Even on my 16-month-old daughter. Not only has she given me the tools to do this but she connected me with other mommas taking the same journey. I am so grateful she has shared her amazing gifts and insights. Shawn is the Yoda of Mamas!

Shawn is everything I’m seeking and inviting more of into my life: abundance, love and inspiration to slow down and savor these precious days with our little ones.
