Does any of this sound familiar?
“I wish I could be a more present mom with my kids.”
“Do I only need to learn to manage my home better? Will that help? Or do I just need to try harder to have a better attitude?“
Maybe you wake up frazzled in the morning with your kids calling for you, and when you come downstairs you see the pile of dishes in the sink, the mess from last night heaped everywhere, and you sigh. It feels like everything is calling your name.
You “escape” on your phone during the morning when you feel like your children aren’t listening to you yet again. Your hours are spent cleaning up and trying to control your own emotions as you feel more and more overwhelmed by daily tasks. Mealtime is a scramble as you look in the pantry and try to brainstorm something to make.
When naptime comes, you’d love a break to focus on hobbies or get a project done, but when you look around, you still see the never-ending piles of laundry heaped in your bedroom, dishes in the sink, and toys out everywhere.
You love being a mom and you want to honor God in motherhood, but you just can’t seem to get ahead enough on household tasks. Add to that your feelings of discouragement and general overwhelm, and you know you’re not being the most present mama you can be.
You know the effect you have on your whole family and you wish there was a way to climb out of the chaos.
You could sit down and play with your kids, without feeling like you’re sacrificing the housework?
You actually had time to pursue hobbies or projects? How great would it feel to finally get those half-finished tasks done, instead of running around trying to catch up?
How would you like to have a home that wasn’t constantly weighing you down with dishes, toys, and other messes?
What if you DIDN’T count down the minutes till bedtime?
What if you were a present mama with a sense of purpose and joy, who had a peaceful AND productive home?
- A home that doesn’t stress you out
- Systems in place that keep you from feeling overwhelmed
- Truly productive days
- Mental and emotional strength during those hard mama times
- Patience and joy when you’re with your kids
- Fresh purpose and perspective in your motherhood journey
The solution? It’s what I call “The Present Mama Equation.”
When we put the following 2 elements together, we become a present mother:
#1: You ready yourself mentally, and make sure you are spiritually and emotionally ready for the day or situation with a peaceful, positive perspective.
#2: You add in household systems that run smoothly.
The result? When you are filled with peace and a good perspective, AND the house is logistically running smoothly itself, that EQUALS a present mama.
Being a present mama directly affects your children and husband, and the quality and intentionality of your life overall! Everyone benefits when Mama is at peace and is a present parent.
How do we get there? I’ve got good news for you!
The Present Mama Playbook
Leave overwhelm behind! Become a present mama who runs a peaceful + productive home!
In this course, we’re addressing both sides of The Present Mama Equation.
We’ll spend time talking about ways to improve our perspective, focus, and even mental resiliency in motherhood. AND we’ll delve deep into sustainable, efficient household systems that’ll dig you out of daily chaos and keep your home running smoothly.
Our goal in the end is not simply to have a positive attitude, OR just to have a clean home. Our goal: to be the most present mama we can be – bringing glory to God as we lovingly, intentionally maintain our home and raise our precious children. We’ll benefit. Everyone in the family will benefit. Are you ready, friend?
Here is what you’ll get when you enroll:
“It is FANTASTIC. I have been devouring the course! It is so good! Hannah shares a lot of good ways about thinking about motherhood and day-to-day parenting, but she also shares the most brilliant tips for mothering! It has dramatically improved my day-to-day mothering, which at this stage is a bit challenging. I hear her tips and tricks come into my mind during difficult parenting moments – the words she shares and the phrases that you can use. All of her wisdom in the course – it is so good! I think any mother would benefit from it. If you are a Christian stay-at-home mom, I think it’s geared toward that subset, but truly, any mom would benefit from the amazing tips and tricks. I’ve been making all kinds of mental notes and implementing her strategies and tips.
There are so many implementable things Hannah shares that I’ve started implementing and it has made a world of difference! I can’t wait to complete the rest of the course because it has been so incredible so far. If you are struggling in motherhood, just looking for new tools to add to your toolbox, or you are looking for some new perspectives, The Present Mama Playbook is very refreshing, very practical, and very helpful!” – Blair Lamb
“The Present Mama Playbook is so encouraging and incredibly practical. It’s paced to fit a busy mom’s schedule, requiring only a few minutes a day and covering so many different pieces of the homemaker’s life. This class was such a good reminder and help in thinking about my life and homemaking primarily as a way to bless other people, whether friends or my own family. I love the intermingling of reminders of the heart attitudes a godly homemaker should be pursuing with super hands-on, useful ideas I can use today. Totally recommend!” – Jordan Bloomquist
“I’ve loved diving in and learning from The Present Mama Playbook! In this busy season as a mom of 2, with another on the way, I sometimes find myself fumbling through housework, or struggling to connect positively with my kids during a challenging day. Listening to Hannah share many of her wise tips during the course gave me a similar feeling to sitting down with a dear friend over a cup of coffee and asking, “Do you have any advice for —? “ That’s the best type of advice, too… when you feel both encouraged and inspired to make intentional change.
I enjoyed the variety of topics each week and the humble challenge it was to begin implementing what I’d learned in each lesson into both my parenting strategies and housework systems.
I admire Hannah’s heart behind creating this course and the goal of the Present Mama Equation. When we set our focus on our desire to honor the Lord in our parenting, and combine that with streamlined and effective homemaking systems — we truly can be more present and peaceful mamas to our little ones. The Present Mama Playbook has given me renewed focus to do just that!” – Courtney Frandle
“This fun, knowledge filled playbook has given me so many pointers on how to be an organized, calm, fun and present mama during all parts of my day to day life. The Present Mama Playbook gave me different perspectives on how to approach life as a busy mom. Sometimes I get overwhelmed trying to do everything at once and cannot find the time to just sit and play one on one with my little one or even sit and set aside time for myself. I really enjoyed how Hannah’s videos and write ups were short enough for me to feel as though I could always fit them into my schedule. Watching these videos also gave me satisfaction that I was doing something to grow myself as a mother. I highly recommend this intricate and knowledgeable playbook. If you are a mama who needs some extra tips on how to manage your day, set time aside for you and your kiddos, organize spaces or just hear stories about how life doesn’t always have to be perfect then this is the playbook for you!” – Annika Ewert

This course is not for you if:
Is The Present Mama Playbook only for stay-at-home moms?
The topics and systems covered in the course are definitely very beneficial for stay-at-home moms. Since The Present Mama Playbook was created by a stay-at-home mom, you’ll see tips and videos mentioning daily routines that reflect a stay-at-home parent’s life. However, the majority of videos in this course are strategies that can be applied by ANY mom! If you want to implement fresh perspectives in motherhood, productivity hacks, and effective homemaking systems, you’ll benefit from this course.
Is there a money-back guarantee?
Absolutely. There is a 30-day money-back guarantee. I want this course to be worth not only your time, but your money. I understand it’s an investment. If after 30 days (4 weeks of content) you feel this isn’t a good fit for you, I will refund you the full amount of your investment. You should feel comfortable giving it a shot and seeing if these strategies and tips work for you! (I believe they will!) So, yes – enrolling in The Present Mama Playbook is risk-free!
I’m already overwhelmed. How will I add this course into my chaotic life?
This course comes in doable, bite-sized chunks! It’s spread out over 12 weeks, and there are 6 short video lessons given to you each week. (You can decide to watch all 6 at once each week or watch 1 per day.) Each video can be watched while doing dishes, folding laundry, you name it! I know your time is valuable so I make sure to keep the videos applicable and to the point. Implementing most of these strategies into your busy life won’t take much time – it’s not like you’ll get a list from me of big new projects to start – instead, much of what you’ll learn in this course will involve a shift in how you do things, plus consistency! And you’ll be so pleased with the changes you see!
Do I get all of the videos when I sign up?
6 new videos will be released each week. As you progress through the course, you’ll still be able to access all of the videos from the previous weeks! By the end of the 12-week course, you’ll have access to over 80 videos!
Is this a “religious” course?
Because my faith is so important to me, there are certainly many mentions of the Christian faith in this course, including some videos that are only on faith topics. But the 80+ videos in The Present Mama Playbook can help and encourage any mother, regardless of religious background. I will say, if you’re uncomfortable with God being mentioned at all, then this course probably isn’t for you. I’m more than happy to discuss what I believe with you if you have further questions, though!
I have children who aren’t the same age as yours. Is this course still relevant to me?
The videos in this course cover topics ranging from housecleaning and productivity to mental resiliency and mealtimes, among other things. There are videos in this course about naptimes, parenting toddlers/preschoolers, etc. because that is the stage of life I’m in now. However, the majority of the videos in this course are strategies that can be applied by ANY mom! If you want to implement fresh perspectives in motherhood, productivity hacks, and effective homemaking systems, you’ll benefit from this course.
What happens once I enroll? What are the next steps?
When you join, you’ll be directed to set up a Teachable account. (Teachable is the online learning platform that makes it easy to watch and keep track of all the video lessons.) You’ll also start receiving Present Mama Playbook-related emails from me. At least once a week, I’ll be checking in with you, to let you know when the new batch of video lessons is up on your account!
A motherhood course should be worth your investment!
That’s why I’m offering my course for much less than other motherhood courses. I understand it’s an investment anyway, but I want this to be especially affordable for overwhelmed or busy mamas. And I want to take the monetary risk out of it for you! There is also a 30-day money back guarantee to help you feel even more comfortable giving it a shot!
You CAN glean new strategies and implement them successfully WITHOUT breaking the bank!
Hi, I’m Hannah!
I’m a wife and mama living in Minnesota with my husband Bjorn and our two children, Sophie and Soren. I’m licensed as an elementary teacher and I taught for 4 years before having the privilege to stay at home with our kids.
My background as a teacher has helped me greatly as a stay-at-home mom, and I’m grateful I’ve also gleaned so much from my own mother, who was a stay-at-home mom herself. But besides that, I’ve truly HAD to learn how to run an efficient household, because my family has a more mobile lifestyle!
We live in two different locations throughout each year for my husband’s job! If I were NOT intentional about effective systems, our busy, mobile life with young children would be chaos. I’ve found that being intentional about both my homemaking AND my perspective has made all the difference in my journey as a mama and I want that peace for you, too!
Some of my greatest joys in life are those smallest moments with my children – you know, those times where you’re so present with them that you’re not reaching for your phone or distracted with anything else. I strive to fill my days with more of those moments – it takes intentionality and having good strategies in my motherhood toolkit so that I can strategically climb out of overwhelm, and quickly!
I created the Present Mama Playbook because I want to help you find fresh purpose in motherhood AND have a home that runs smoothly! The goal: to be the most present and peaceful mama you can be!
I’m so glad you’re here, and I can’t wait to get to know you better!
Don’t miss out!
The next 3 months are going to pass anyway. 12 weeks from now, your motherhood journey could be filled with fresh perspective and strategies! Or, you could find yourself in the same boat with the same feelings of overwhelm. Let’s not be stuck in the same spot after the next few months go by!
Take the first step and move towards a life of peaceful productivity!
