Mom-iversityThere is ALL kinds of excitement coming your way, so be sure to read this whole post and stay tuned this week.

Today is Motivation Monday! Tell us in the comments if you’ve taken action and get a chance to win today’s giveaways. Yes, giveaways!

There are two amazing prizes you could win.

Get all the details at the end of the post and find out who won last week’s prize.

Prize #1: Positive Parenting Solutions

When you share your action today, you’ll be entered to win a FREE one year registration for the Positive Parenting Course by Amy McCready. She’s been featured on the Today show, Fox news and many other media outlets. I’m in the process of taking her course and have learned SO much.

This giveaway is worth $200!

I found Amy’s site several months ago and learned a lot just from the first course. I thought you might too, so I contacted her about participating in a giveaway and she agreed! I am so excited about this. We also have something special planned for you later this month.

Update: I just learned that Amy will be on the Rachael Ray show this morning (9/13)and on the Today show Thursday morning (9/16).

Positive Parenting Solutions is a multimedia course that you can take from the comfort of your own home whenever it is convenient for you. Amy McCready shares her wealth of wisdom via video, pdf’s, articles, emails and interactive tools that will give you insight into your parenting style and the needs of your children.

I’ve only finished two parts of the class and I already feel SO much more focused and equipped as a mother. I feel that, too often I become a reactionary mom instead of a revolutionary one. I respond to the things my children do wrong, instead of actively training them to make good choices. Then, my frustration arises simply because I don’t know what to do. Amy’s class has helped add to the tools I use to deal with the more challenging moments of motherhood.

Mom-iversity Schedule

Don’t forget that this week we’re discussing the idea of a Mom-iversity. If you’ve ever wish you’d been able to have a PHD in “Motherhood,” this series is for you.

Honestly, I am completely blown away by y’all’s (I’m from Texas, remember. ๐Ÿ™‚ response to the Mom-iversity idea. I can’t wait to learn with all of you!

Here’s the schedule for the week:
Tuesday – My brilliant friend Christa Wells will be sharing her thoughts on wisdom and bringing some inspiration your way.
Wednesday – I’ll share some tools and practical tips on creating your own Mom-iversity course.
Thursday – Free form. I know, get excited, right? Who doesn’t love forms? Thursday, we’ll each create a “syllabus” of the things we’d want to learn and develop a simple plan to reach those goals.

Prize #2: Christa Wells CD

I talk endlessly to my friends and family about my favorite musicians. I thought, “Why should it be any different on the blog?”

Here’s a song Christa wrote for her kids that melts me every time I hear it.

My Best Remedy (Amazing)
Thank you for making me laugh today
you took me by surprise
Thank you for catching me down at the mouth
You ambushed me with delight

Amazing amazing
I’ll take your medicine anytime
you are my best remedy

Thank you for standing outside my head
“til I came out to you
You forced me to wash my face in the fresh air
and step my feet in the dew


Be here tomorrow when I awake
come running for a dance
Mischievous angel you’ve taken your place in my heart
at last

Chorus x2

I’ll take your medicine anytime
You are my best remedy

Isn’t that gorgeous? Now go hug your kids, I know you want to. And check back tomorrow for Christa’s special guest post.
