What are people saying?

“I am a person! I really am! Thanks for reminding me that it’s OK to want to go to the bathroom or eat my food BY MYSELF. And that I’m not a bad mom if I carve out time to pursue my own interests sometimes. I feel like this training has given me the permission I needed to become the person and mom I know I can and should be.” – Katerina Whitman

“It has been so empowering to remember that “mummy is a person” and to realize it’s OK for me to have off/on duty time. Funny from yesterday: After I’d finished the hugs, kisses, happies, prayer, songs, more hugs and kisses and water and toilet with my 5-year-old, she called out from her room, “Mum I have a question!” My husband, who’s totally on-board with all this now that I’ve explained it all to him, responded with, “Sorry, Mummy is off duty but you can leave a message with me.” I think they’re getting it!” – Georgina Close

“I’m so glad I spent the time watching the Mommy is a Person training this past weekend. I have felt a real shift in my attitude already this week. I have scheduled in some very important things I need to do for myself, my spirituality and for my family every day/week and I am feeling very positive about the changes it will bring to my family. Its hard being a Mother but the training has provided me with a new focus, a new approach and I am now excited for the future and I am finding much more joy in every day.” – Kellie Hollis

What would you pay to become the mom and person you’d really like to be? Retreat attendees called our “Mommy is a Person” curriculum “truly life-changing” and “priceless.” But while our Retreats cost upwards of $150 to attend in person (not counting babysitting and travel costs), we’re excited to be able to offer you this half-day “virtual Retreat” for just $57.
