Thrive in Five
My reasons for doing the program were two fold: to look better (lose a few extra pounds of baby weight) and have more energy (I was so tired of always being tired). Your first lessons floored me. Such a wake up call to examine how I view my health. Changing my perceptions of health and my body was so freeing and set the tone for the rest of the program.
But hands down, in a month where I would normally have been exhausted and frazzled, I felt GOOD. Really really good-- energized, at peace and joyful. I have not needed that afternoon cup of coffee, and actually don't want it!
Other changes I've made-- I recommitted to walking every day, not when it was "convenient" and made it my time with God too. You are right, pairing exercise with something meaningful makes it not feel like exercise and is now something I look forward to. Also, I've gotten outside with my children more, and not only have we benefitted from being outside, we have played together! I've paired weights with floor time with my 4 year old, and it is part of our special time when the youngest is sleeping and the older 2 aren't home from school yet. Another favorite change-- not counting calories! It is so liberating to eat food and enjoy it!
Thrive in Five helped me (like the Five Minute Mom) to properly focus my thoughts and actions. The result is a more fulfilled, and energized mom.
Thank you Hannah!
First, the program is INCREDIBLE!!!! I have read countless books on health, fitness and wellness and I have never seen the information, encouragement and practical baby steps all pulled together like this. This program has the potential to take anyone from STUCK to moving toward a life of total health.
My advice to someone looking to overhaul their health and their families health: Delete EVERYTHING you think you know about health. All the rules, guidelines, all the "what I should be doing." Go into this program with an open mind and a heart that is teachable. This program will walk you through every step of that process AND give you small action steps everyday that are attainable. It's fantastic.
I wish I could wrap this program up with a beautiful big pink bow and give it to each of my girlfriends. Seriously. :-)

I can't tell you how much this program has affected me.
I have lost 5 pounds since I started this, because I quite worrying about food! Started eating when hungry and stopping when full. Stopped worrying about calories, started making movement fun! I am so ready to help you spread the word about this program, it will be life changing for me as I take the time to work through things! Busy moms don't get much quiet time to think and pray! I've been trying by bites and pieces!
Thank you Hannah!

Hannah, your Thrive in Five is THE BEST! Here I am yet again needing to thank you for all your hard work. The program just blew me away! I knew it was going to be great, I did the 5 Minute Mom and Total Mom and got so so much out of them but this just took me to new levels of health and happiness, I feel better now than I did when I was a teen. I seriously have more energy and look forward everyday to getting another chance to take care of myself. You are such a blessing and God is using you to help other moms get out of this darkness we get ourselves in and into this energizing light. The program is worth hundreds of dollars! I am so grateful to you Hannah! I am telling everyone I know about it, they need to invest in themselves and they will be so glad they took the step.
A home-run! I was willing to do the work but I needed direction and this was it! I enjoyed this program. It challenged me and moved me to a better place in my thoughts and feelings, as well as my actions and my body is so thankful. I did this for me, but my family prospered from it as well. I appreciate this help.
I really enjoyed your Thrive in 5 program. It was insightful yet easy to understand. There were so many good ideas for eating and exercizing that I now use, as well as the info explaining different health features of our bodies. This program is different! I never thought about asking God for help in this area, but it makes so much sense! He often tells us we don't "get" because we don't "ask", so I asked :) Your positivity is a blessing to us, Hannah. Thank you!
Very informative and motivational. Thank you, Hannah!

I thought the Thrive in Five was very informative and good. I've lost approximately 6 pounds so far...
With 3 kids I am busy no doubt but your program is so easy to do! Only 5 minutes to listen to and I print out the transcript so that I can go over it the next day or when I need a boost. I really enjoy your "sermons" and am referring to my bible more now. Thank you for this program.
As always, I learned a lot from you from Thrive in Five! I really appreciate your humor and tough love that you give us Moms.
The Thrive in 5 program has given me the tools and the motivation to make life changing decisions. I am on my way to a healthier lifestyle that will impact not only me, but my husband and children also. Thanks Hannah for all you do to help others and give them the courage and confidence to change their way of doing things
I enjoyed Thrive in Five. I reallly enjoyed listening to the audio in the morning and then printing out all the material and reviewing it and completing the lesson before bed. I really wish there was a workbook to go along with the lessons to save printing out all the individual lessons.
It is good grounding material, nothing earth shattering, as I thought it would offer more technical information, but good stuff none the less. I hoped it would include more information on food, ie: Alkalizing foods and simple recipes I could use with my family. I know raw is best but the kids like stuff cooked for them. :) And maybe more of a structured diet to follow. I understand getting my emotions and thoughts are important in the process and I really appreciate all you have done with this program.
I enjoy your website and blog and I liked watching Hannah Help Me whenver I could catch it on tv.
Thank you Hannah for all you do for us Mamas!!
I loved the Thrive in Five program! Due to an injury I had to stop exercising for awhile, however, I can't wait to pick it back up after I get the go ahead from the doctor. Hannah's encouraging program is a breath of fresh air and her plans for keeping it simple and healthy are easy to follow. Hannah has struggled through the same issues and understands what we go through as moms.
Thanks so much, Hannah!!! This was a GREAT program! I looked forward to it every morning. You helped me get my head on straight, and now my body is starting to be happy again...I lost 5 pounds on the program. I felt happier, more in control of my eating, and didn't have those awful cravings. YES! Thank you for helping me become the mom that God has designed me to be! Thanks, too, for providing the written transcript. I need to keep reading through those to keep me on track. I wish I could download the audios to listen to them over and over again. Hearing your voice is such an encouragement to me. Well, thanks so much for motivating me and giving me hope again!
I love, LOve LOVE Thrive in 5. I was sad to see the 30 days end. It was so great . I learned so much and it has given me the knowledge and power to continue to make good choices for my health and hopefully my family's health too.
Thank you for bringing another fabulous program to the table. I have been telling all my family and friends to check it out.

This program has given me the tools to succeed. I no longer feel I can't, but that I can and that even in small ways I'm successful and will continue to succeed in a healthier lifestyle. I have shared these ideas with a friend and we both are feeling that we are positive, strong, and healthier Mommas.
