I created The Abundant Mama Way nearly a decade ago to help families create more enoughness in their lives. To show moms how to release all the shoulds and create a more meaningful life. We do this through a series of mindset practices that actually — when done consistently — change the way you think and how your brain works. =
Because once you master these practical tools, you can mentally afford to create space for all the beautiful things you want in your life that aren’t happening right now, that you simply do not have time for, that you know are good for you but just aren’t putting as a top priority.
I help you create the space you need to thrive.
Well, the same goes for a child.
In other words, as long as we continue to keep children so busy we’re actually teaching them to not make space and time for what is truly important.
All of the work we do inside my programs and group coaching program are really about helping you to create beautiful, meaningful space for yourself, for your family, for your creativity, for your marriage.
But, it’s also been a vital parenting skill and one I feel is super urgent for more families to impress upon their children as the rates of depression and anxiety take their toll on our youth.
As summer approaches, it’s easy to let our own fears take over and think our children need to be signed up for all the things and do all the things. I’ve been there — worried they’ll be bored. Worried they will miss out.
Not enough, not enough, not enough screams in our heads.
