P.S. The next READ LIKE A MOTHER flocks (morning and evening) begin on July 1, 2019. Email Steph at email@example.com to get on the list.
Welcome newbie! We love you already. Digital coaching means we’ll be serving up loads of prompts, questions, and exercises via weekly emails – a whole schwack of thought provoking stuff that will help you go deeper, and feel supported in between our monthly calls.
Small group coaching is just that – a maximum of 12 stunning souls gathering together on monthly calls led by Steph and the Read Like a Mother team of coaches. Together we’ll peel back the individual and collective layers. This ain’t no webinar! This is showing up to keep growing up! Keeping the groups small guarantees that each person will be seen and heard. We’re aiming for rich connection and deeply rooted growth, as opposed to a shallow dive into the waters of anonymous hypotheticals.
Books are not included in the program. We encourage you to purchase them in advance and/or time your reserves at your local library accordingly.
All three selected titles will be announced in the month prior to the program’s start and can be viewed online before signing up for Read Like a Mother. In other words, you’ll know everything in advance.
For the January – June, 2019 books, scroll back up and you'll see them listed out.
Two words – Love. Actually. Have you ever watched a movie and gotten more out of it the 37th time around than you did the first? And . . . have you ever read books that way? And . . . have you ever read a book and then read it again with a group of people and a personal coach leading the way on actually applying said book to your life?
YES. We cover one book every two months (as opposed to a book a month). That means the max amount of reading in a single week works out to about 25 – 40 pages . . . in other words, four or five pages a day will do ya.
NO. Because we’re not just reading. We’re reading like mothers. We’re reading, journaling, notetaking, thinking, processing, coaching, applying, reading some more, laughing, crying, talking, and GROWING. You will not be bored.

It’s required that participants attend a minimum of 4 of the 6 small group coaching calls. Here’s why: at its core, Read Like a Mother is a group coaching program. It’s about shared experiences and about creating connection with ourselves and others . . . and that shit don’t work when you don’t or can’t show up. To thrive, the calls need active participants, here and present, and fully engaged.
If attending 4 of the 6 coaching sessions doesn’t work for you but you’re still looking for some big-time growth, check out the Great Big Journey.
No worries. All calls will be recorded and are available to view anytime in the 48 hours post-event.
