The Five Minute Mom
Your program has been a great encouragement to me! Some of your ideas about organizing and working in the zones were totally new to me and I have put them into action. I also needed to hear the exercise talk. Your upbeat attitude was catching! God has really gifted you in the area of encouraging others! I'm not even sure one morning how I came upon your website, but I'm sure glad I did! Thank you and blessings on you!!

Wow! I told a good friend about "Hannah Help Me." As a thank you, she signed me up for the Five-Minute Mom coaching program. I feel like it is God kicking me to get me moving. You've covered so many bases with this program: faith, self, family, spouse, home, finances. It is well rounded. I like that about it. Also, that you are so straightforward about God. He is the All in All and it is so nice to hear it from a source that does not label itself Christian. It is just part of life. I like the format--audio, with the action steps, lesson guide, and it is great that you have the transcripts for us, too. I'll be rereading them! Thank you for a well-rounded program. Thank you for following God's call to you to be of help and service to all of us Moms out here.

Your website and this program has been a huge inspiration, source of comfort and support. I live an hour away from mine and my husband's family and sometimes I feel all on my own out here. I quit my nursing job to do what I always dreamed of doing; staying home and raising our two boys, but through all of our trials to have children I never thought it could be this hard. I have now learned and the things you have to work the hardest on are the ones worth treasuring.
Raising our boys is one of the greatest gifts God has ever given me and with his support and yours my new career has become the most rewarding one I could of ever asked for! Thank you for doing for all of us and reminding us that this is so worth it.

I just completed day 4 of 5 minute mom and last night my husband said to me that this week has been so great. He complemented me on having things so organised and being positive. I've been getting up early, having a quiet time with my Father God and starting doing my action steps! I really has made the world of difference. My husband and 3 kids are grateful to you Hannah :)
Hannah I really think God sent me in your direction. I was in a terrible slump, exhausted, depressed, overwhelmed. My house was a mess, I was having no fun, the finances were a mess, and I was unhealthy. I typed in mom makeover one night on Google and there you were to help! Now things are so bright, I had a big party and all the moms gushed about the nice feel of my home and the food, I dumped the frump which my husband loves! I am excited to spend time with my kids and even though the job is hard, it is the best, so much fun everyday and I was missing out on it! God is so Good!
Your coaching program has changed my whole life for the better. I have 6 wonderful kids and I was just dragging myself through life, tired, unmotivated, sad, I was also very negative. I knew I loved my husband and kids, I believe completely in God and yet still I was so slumped over, just settling, as you say, and trying to get through another day. Now things are so different. I laugh, I feel better, my family loves the changes, I am enjoying the best job on earth and just feel overwhelmingly grateful to God for everyday I get to be here doing this fun exciting life. I am truly grateful for you Hannah. Thanks so much for doing all this work for us moms, it is making such a difference in our lives!

Hey Hannah! I've spent the last 30 days reading, thinking about and implementing your program and I am super impressed! I love how everything is Christian based...I think a lot of people discount the power of prayer and spirituality in their lives. We are spiritual beings having an earthly experience and it's easy to forget that in the whirl of life. I loved every single days lesson. There were definitely areas that needed work, and I was happy to have your positive voice encouraging me! I hope I can meet you some day and give you a great big hug:)
Awesome!!! I used your positive thinking advice to get a PR (personal record) I had been chasing for a while. While running my latest half marathon, instead of saying," I'm never going to beat this time," I told myself, "I CAN do this" when I got tired. You know what? It worked!! Thanks for the inspiration!

I LOVED this program!! I am a stay at home mom of a 3 year old little girl and a 4 month old little boy. I, as most stay at home moms, felt like I had lost a bit of myself and wanted to find it! Hannah is such an inspiration. If she can do it with her 7 kids, then I can surely do it with my 2 right?! Thank you Hannah!!!

The Five Minute Coaching program is awesome. I have been using the principles in the program to work my way out of debt. Since I have started the program I am almost completely out of debt. I plan to continue the program. It really works if you apply it to your situation and make the necessary changes.
The Five Minute Mom is an incredible dose of essential tools to successful living. Not simply surviving, but LIVING- or really, THRIVING! :) I am not a mom yet, but am a teacher, and I find that 5MM coaches me, and prepares me for the life I long to live, and for the positive influence I long to be both for my students, but also for my parents, and colleagues. Not only on a professional level, but I know that these tools will help me when I become a mom as well. Thank you Hannah for helping me become who God desires me to be, in turn helping others develop, and fulfill their purpose. I am so blessed by you, and your sweet family!
I have just finished the 5 minute mom programme. I started it at a bit of a crazy time as I have an 8 week old baby (4 weeks when I started!) But I figured I would always find an excuse, so went for it. Thank you so much, I have found it so helpful. I have been being a bit kind to myself and going slow but I didn't miss a single day and did most of the action steps. The ones I missed I am going back to. I have 5 children 8 and under and have found that I have lacked joy in the past and been overwhelmed a lot of the time. But I have been really working on enjoying my children and being silly with them and inviting and claiming joy. And I feel a lot better. I have had post-natal depression in the past and I really think that I am not going down that road again. I claim joy every day. Not only that but my house is more organised. I have cleared and de-cluttered and love the spaces I have created. They really have cleared space in my brain too. I have made artwork (which I love doing) and realised that when I claim to not have time for things like that I am actually doing my family a dis-service as the new pictures on the wall are lovely for all of us. Next stop is to stop procrastinating and write the children's book I have had an idea for for about a year. I WILL DO IT!
I know that I am not there yet, but God hasn't finished with me and I will get there step by step.
Thank you for your encouragement along the way.
Hannah puts the focus where it should be -on God and a person's greater purpose and living with joy and feeling alive! Thank you for shifting my focus!
I loved this program! It was like feeding my soul. It has really encouraged me to take charge of my life and my home. I think all the advise was very applicable to me and my situation (I work very part time and have one 4 month old son). I can see how this program would be beneficial for most people, regardless of situation. In fact, I often found myself thinking oh this is good advice I think my mom would like. (and her kiddos are all grown!) :)
Thank you for helping me! I love the straight forward no nonsense approach to all of life's challenges!
I definitely recommend this program. It was well worth the financial sacrifice to build me up and improve ALL areas of my life. Thanks again!!!! Angela
I only have gotten to day 6, I have my folder, my watch (i cant set the alarm, but that doesn't stop me! i just check my thoughts whenever i look at the time) but it has already made such a difference in my life! i will get through the 5 minute mom eventually, and I am okay with the fact that it will take me some time to get through the 30 days. My family and friends have seen such a difference in my life. Who would have thought such small actions would make such big results. I've watched your program, recorded it and re-watched it. I can see myself in almost all the moms. My children are in their 20's and my little one is 14. I spent many years in feeling overwhelmed and frustrated. I remember crying and feeling lost, and thinking something was wrong with me because I couldn't "Get It" together. I am so thankful for coming across your television program by accident. The changes that have been made are amazing. Im not perfect, and I'm happier than I have ever been. Do I have a lot to accomplish still? Heck Ya! The difference is I know I can and I'm not overwhelmed by it any longer. Thank -you, for blessing me with your words of wisdom!! Proud to be a sloppy success!!

I love all of your programs! This program has taught me a lot about myself and what type of Mom I want to be. It's been a wonderful experience! I am going back through the 5 minute mom coaching this month to review as a devotional to help me . Thank you so much!
This program touches on all aspects of life and really encouraged me to be the best I can be for myself and my family!
The major thing that separates this program from others is the ability to personalize it to fit your life and situation, which is truly motivating! For example: A box of tools sat in our master bathroom since we moved in (sadly several years ago), waiting for my husband to move it to the garage. For one of my zone cleaning days I finally moved the tools and truly cleaned the bathroom. My husband was so inspired by my cleaning that he suggested we sort through 3 bins of old clothes in our bedroom the next weekend! Now, I have a cleaner house and a better marriage! :)
As a full-time working mom of 3 small kids (whose husband is currently living 5 hours away during the week for work), I've been striving to move past 'I barely survived today' to feeling like 'I'm getting it together' and your program has helped me gain that sense of peace & control. I’m realizing my purpose & refocusing my passion to help my family to grow closer to each other, grow closer to God, and develop as individuals.
My family is functioning more like a team, which is a HUGE change. I now realize that it is important to teach my young children these life skills (God & family focus, organization, time & money management, teamwork, negotiation, etc.), so they can develop & maintain good habits. I have a hard time delegating, but I’ve lowered my crazy, perfectionist standards and no longer do everything myself. The result: MORE is getting done because 1) I have more energy knowing that I’ve got help & I’ve got a plan & a slightly more defined schedule/ routine 2) everyone is happy to be busy moving together and feels like they are more invested & have more input in how the household functions.
I am so grateful that you have allowed us to keep this content after purchase. I desperately need to complete the money topics, but I let the business of life (worked late, sick kids, etc.) get in the way. I’m so glad to be able to review the topics where I need to apply further effort.
PS. I passed along your site to my sisters, mother-in-law, and several coworkers. I also have been baking your muffins (& printed recipes) at work, so hopefully I can get the word out – if you need a little (or a lot) of help getting your life headed in the direction that you’d like it to go, do the 5 minute mom program!
Again, thank you for all of your assistance! God really has blessed your with the ability to tell it like it is, but say things in a loving way, so that hearts & minds will open and families will be encouraged to change for the better!
