Are you waiting to thrive?

You’d like to be more organised. But you’re too sleep-deprived to start. You’re over-scheduled. But how can you say no? You want to be creative. But can’t fit anything else in, let alone attempt that craft you saw on Pinterest. You want to raise happy, peaceful kids. But you feel anything but peaceful yourself…

Sound familiar?

How would it feel to have the kind of home-life you wanted, without sacrificing any more sleep or any more time to yourself? Imagine feeling so peaceful and productive at home that you actually felt you could thrive instead of just survive…
I’m Eva Strijp and I’m here to tell you that having a simple life and a peaceful family home can be achieved. I’m here to tell you that: You don’t have to wait until the baby is sleeping through. You don’t have to wait until your toddler is out of nappies. You don’t have to wait till your kids are at school.

Thriving is an option and it’s an option right now.

Even if your babies aren’t sleeping through yet. Even if your home is a crazy mess right now. You don’t have to wait for your children to change. All it takes is a few strategies and some different choices. Because your role as a mother is so important, isn’t it worth doing something that will make a difference?

Imagine having…

Peace

  • The capacity to get rid of overwhelm and start living peacefully in a fast-paced world
  • A simple, peaceful family home that’s easy to maintain… with your children!

Confidence

  • The confidence to make the right decisions for you and your family (no more second-guessing or worrying about what others will think)
  • A proven framework for decluttering your home, your commitments and your habits

Clarity

  • Total control over your schedule, without losing the flexibility you need as a mum
  • The clarity to know what to say yes to and what to decline

If that feels totally impossible, like a far-fetched fantasy, I know what you mean.

I remember thinking exactly that. I remember feeling that I would have to wait until my kids had all left home before I’d start to thrive. I can’t remember the exact moment that I realised I had the power to make the shift… maybe it was something a friend said. Maybe it was just feeling fed up with the constant struggle. Whatever it was, I realised that nothing would change until I finally gave myself permission to do things my way. Once I discovered that I could set up my life with simple strategies that worked for us, life got so much better. As a mum with five children under ten, I’m under no illusions about the reality of motherhood. And I’m not interested in turning you into a supermum…. What does that mean anyway? I simply believe that you have everything you need to have a peaceful, happy home life. All you need to do is decide what that looks like for you. I give you the tools and strategies to create exactly the home life you want. As well as the courage to take care of yourself.

I know what it is to be overwhelmed and struggling.

To be just surviving, yet wanting to really thrive – as a parent and as a person. I am here to tell you that it doesn’t have to be that way. You can create lasting change for yourself and your family. I have developed the Simple Life, Peaceful Home strategy after years of trialling, growing and creating. I can’t wait to share it with you.

What’s Inside

Simple Life, Peaceful Home is an 8 week strategy for busy mothers with young children who need guidance, support and strategies to create and maintain a simple, peaceful family home. If this sounds like you, take a look at what’s inside.
Week-1 You’ll take some time this week to really figure out what it is you want to achieve through this course. You’ll receive a pre-course welcome pack and you can jump into the support forum for some inspiration and motivation.
Week-2 In an age of hyper-consumerism and crazy excess, the wisdom of minimalist living is making a comeback. Over 2 weeks, you’re going to use a proven strategy for decluttering your space so that you have a solid base for creating a simple, peaceful life and home.
Week-2 Simplifying your life isn’t just about getting rid of stuff. It’s about creating a balanced, peaceful day-to-day that you’re happy to wake up to. This week, you’ll go through the process of decluttering commitments, projects and mindsets. You’ll also dig deep into the concept of reduction. You’ll look at reducing consumption, both of material items and of subtle influences, and create space in your life and your home for more of the good stuff.
week-5-6 Over 2 weeks, you’ll invest time in setting in place systems and routines that will help you to create order and peace so that the home can run smoothly and with as little stress as possible. You will develop a schedule that allows for change and growth, but that keeps you focused and on track. With some solid strategies and key planners, you’ll create systems for success in your home and family.
week-7 Master the art of creation! This week, you’ll look at simple yet effective ways to begin creating inside the home. You’ll look at ways to re-introduce an old hobby or carve out time for a new one. This module includes a bonus guide with natural cleaning recipes from Laura Trotta.
week-8 This week is all about creating strategies for a calm daily life, beyond this program. When you’re in the thick of a course, it can be easy to stick to new ideas, but once the course ends, we tend to fall off the band-wagon somewhat. In this module, you’ll spend some time creating rituals that will help you maintain your simple life and your peaceful home.

Laying the Foundations

In Week 1, I’ll send you some resources to download so that you can grab your favourite beverage and dive in to developing your intentions for this course.

Eva, I loved this course. I found it to be calming, focused and rewarding. I love all the bonus resources, the fact that we have unlimited access to the course materials and the fact that you do not heavily rely on video to teach. So many courses are moving to video, which is impossible with little kids – reading I can do when they are asleep in my arms!!! I can go back and re-read what I need to as well! AND If I really wanted I could print stuff out, but just having it all on the iPad is awesome! The website is really user friendly. I love the layout and find it really easy to navigate and use. Although I didn’t keep pace with the course due to moving house, I eventually caught up and am absolutely inspired!! Thank you for creating such a wonderful course.

Although I am still making my way through the course at my own pace, I have so far found several things that have made a massive difference in both my mindset and the running of our home. Culling and decluttering was huge and it’s made life much easier – it’s amazing how much stuff we’ve had that we haven’t used but couldn’t purge from our home. We have brought in the rule that for every toy, clothing item or household good that comes in, one other item has to be donated. Implementing a meal plan has also simplified things. I’m not a stressed mess at 3 pm, trying to work out what to cook, so quite often I now cook or at least prepare in the mornings when our toddler has his nap and I find things much more harmonious in the afternoon.

What Can I Expect?

The Simple Life, Peaceful Home program is your 8 week strategy for success.

Delivered over 8 weeks, the strategy includes videos (not too many!), workbooks, templates, tutorials and action sheets for you to adapt to your life and family. This isn’t just an 8 week fly-by-night in which you feel motivated during the course and then drop off the band-wagon when it’s over. This course is dedicated to helping you create systems and rituals that will last well beyond the duration of the course and that can easily be customised as your life changes and your family grows. I will support you through every step of this journey so that the strategy you create for your family is one that fits you like a glove and is a joy to keep.

What Folks Are Saying…

Kate-McCormackWorking with Eva has been an amazing experience for me. Her wonderful advice and inspiration for parents is not only driven by her own experience, but also by here intuition and empathy. It is this perfect combination that allows her to have such a thoughtful and considered perspective. Eva’s ideas and initiative have allowed her to do things other people would only ever dream of. Her commitment to being of service to other parents, providing them with products and services to help them on their own journey, is palpable. Apart from all of that, she is just brilliant at getting things done – like no one I have ever come across! No matter what your journey is – a parenting journey, a business journey – if you are thinking about working with Eva, do it. She will guide you to the best possible outcome you could imagine.

Prerna-MalikI have known and worked in various roles with Eva for over 3 years now and have always admired her in-depth knowledge of leading a sustianable life and most importantly, her commitment to walking the talk. Did you know that she maps out her entire year’s worth of blog posts even before the year starts? Yes, THAT organised! Working with her is a pleasure. She’s clear, she stands by her word, she leads with grace and good humour. She doesn’t pretend to be someone she isn’t. Learning about simple sustainable living from Eva is like chatting with a friend who gets how busy and crazy your life is and can help you still make meaningful changes without losing your mind.

Karen-GuntonThe thing that has always impressed me most about Eva is her genuine passion for the natural parenting community. Community is at the forefront of everything she does – be it nurturing and supporting her treasured retailers or building a community of like-minded parents. Eva has such an authentic desire to create something much bigger than the products she sells; I admire the way she SHARES that passion with the world and this is the type of person I most love to work with.

Karen Gunton | www.karengunton.com

Laura-Trotta-2The old saying that “it takes a village to raise a child” is as relevant today as it’s ever been. When you become a mother for the very first time, everything is so new and overwhelming and you really need the support of other “more experienced” mums to make the transition as smooth as possible. With the breakdown of traditional communities, and many of us raising our kids in suburbs, cities and towns far away from our own mums and family support network, online communities and experts have an important role to play. If you’re looking for an experienced, knowledgeable and compassionate mum to help guide you on your peaceful parenting journey, you can’t go past Eva. I’m simply in awe of how Eva manages to juggle being the primary caregiver to, and home schooling her five children, living sustainable and running a business, all while remaining so real and accessible. The truth is that Eva is passionate about peaceful parenting and is ever more passionate about helping and supporting other mums grow into their role as mothers, it is her calling. So, if you’re missing the village in your parenting journey, do yourself a favour and invest in Eva to support you in the most important role of all, motherhood. You will be a better mother for it.

As Seen In…

I’ve been blogging about parenting and simple living for 9 years and have had the privilege of writing for some fabulous publications and blogs, including…

comment-top-image “We have been dealing with Eva for over 18 months. Both Eva and her products are consistent with their authenticity towards helping both consumers and the environment and I have no problem recommending her as an excellent mentor to helping busy mums create a more reusable, self-sufficient and simple family home.”

Shelley Mason www.limetreekids.com.au

comment-top-image “Just a quick note to say thanks very much for the information I gained from your 28 days eCourse. It was full of great handy little tips to help us make changes around our home one small step at a time. I would like to think I was fairly eco-friendly around the home, but having completed your eCourse I have picked up some areas I need to be more conscious of! There are some great ideas that we can implement straight away, which will make a huge difference to how much waste we add to landfill every week. Thanks again.”

Jaclyn Guerin www.thisthingcalledpaleo.com

comment-top-image “I have had the pleasure of working with Eva for the past few years. As a new business owner starting out, the leadership and support shown by Eva has given me the confidence to continue to make my way in the cloth nappy industry. As a busy mum of two young boys I’ve also been able to continue to make changes in my home life towards a more sustainable, and financially viable lifestyle with simple to use advice and handy tips I find throughout Eva’s website.”

Cassandra Liplyn www.mitchnmoo.com

comment-top-image “As a busy mother of three young children, it’s been difficult to find mummy-friendly solutions to assist me in simplifying our lifestyle and making our home more economically efficient and eco-friendly. Eva’s eCourse did all of these things while offering a vast array of affordable tips and ideas that were really easy to implement. It was so enjoyable to take part in and it’s motivated me to make the small but very significant changes that will help my family and our environment now and in the long run.”

Got Questions

We’ve got answers! If you have a question about Simple Life, Peaceful Home that we haven’t addressed below, please don’t hesitate to be in touch by emailing my team at hello (at) evavanstrijp (dot) com (dot) au and we’ll get back to you asap.
How much does it cost?

Simple Life, Peaceful Home is available to you for the modest investment of $297.

What if I don't have time?
  Life is busy. Crazy busy, actually. That’s why I created Simple Life, Peaceful Home to be self-paced. There is no need to “keep up” – do what you can, when you can and commit to taking one small step each day. Whether the course takes you 8 weeks or 8 months, you can go at your own pace as you have access to the membership site and its content for the lifetime of the course, plus of course the customisable action sheets are all yours forever. You can go through the live rounds every time they run and feel refreshed and inspired each time to update your strategy, or you can adjust on your own terms, when it feels right for you.  
Will this fix all of my problems?
  Simple Life, Peaceful Home is not a magic wand. It is a strategy that only you can implement. Only by committing to do the work, creating change and sticking to it will you begin to enjoy a simpler life and a more peaceful family home.  
How quickly can I expect results?
  As soon as you register for Simple Life, Peaceful Home, I’ll send you some resources to start you off on the journey of simplifying your home. In Week 1, we get really clear about what it is you want to achieve from the course. From Week 2 onwards, it’s all about implementing to achieve the life and home you want to create.  
What if I fall behind?
  Whether the course takes you 8 weeks or 8 months, you can go at your own pace as you have access to the membership site and its content for the lifetime of the course. The best forum support is available while the course is live, as this is when most participants are in the thick of creating strategies and making change, so this is the best time to get live feedback and engagement. While we encourage you to work through the course as the modules are made available, there is no falling behind in this course, and every step towards a simpler life is an important one.  
What if I don’t have a computer?
  Simple Life, Peaceful Home displays beautifully on phone, tablet, laptop and desktop. The only thing you will want a computer and printer for is to print the templates, worksheets and planners, but these can be downloaded and viewed then saved as screenshots to your phone or tablet.  
When do registrations close?

 

  Registrations for Simple Life, Peaceful Home are not currently open. We open for enrolments again in February 2017.

Do you offer a refund if the course isn’t right for me?
  Yes. I wholeheartedly believe in Simple Life, Peaceful Home and know that it is packed full of creative strategies and incredible value that you will be able to use throughout your home and in the parenting season of life. I also know that the support you receive in the forum, both from myself and other participants, will be one of the most valuable aspects of creating and maintaining your new life and home. However, if you don’t feel that the course is the right fit for you, simply email my team letting them know you’re not satisfied and submit all your completed worksheets before the end of Week 3, and we’ll refund you your course price, less a $10 administration fee.  
Couldn't I just find all this stuff for free on the Internet, or create it all myself?
  Perhaps. You could spend hundreds of hours scouring the net for the information you need or spend precious time creating all of the planners and strategies you need for your home. But why do that, when it’s all been done for you – ready for you to translate for your home, life and family?  
How much time will it take me to go through the course content each week?
  I recommend dedicating an hour a week to soaking up course content and to start implementing specific changes. But really… the beauty of Simple Life, Peaceful Home is that you can go through it at your own pace and take baby steps or giant leaps.  
Is this course geared to mothers who run a business?
  This course is not tailored specifically for mothers who run businesses, but there are a number of extra resources that I have developed and use in my own business and which I’m sharing in this course – especially for those who do happen to run a business. This course was created for mothers who want to simplify and smooth their transition into parenthood. If you don’t run a business, you can just skip over the bonus material and concentrate on all the other good stuff that you need.
