My daily life as a mother
I am a mother of nine children. I was born Dutch and married a German. He was a widow with three children. We had six more, and two of our children got married. So far, this has added four grandchildren to our family. So, I'm a young grandmother as well. Six of the children still live at home (the youngest is six), and I homeschool them. It helps that I am a certified teacher.
We also speak several languages and live in different countries, like Germany and a jungle area in Costa Rica. At the moment we are staying in France. We speak Dutch, German, English, and Spanish together, and are learning French.
I birthed my biological children gently at home, the last three of them in a free and painless birth. All this adds to the many stories I have gathered in my life. My life has never been quiet or boring!
I help women to embrace health and wholeness from deep within their hearts. Especially in the area of relationships, fertility, pregnancy, birth, and motherhood. I love to help to find real wisdom, to hear the voice of one's heart, and to live this wisdom, even within one's daily busy life.
2022-2023 (six months with George's program and courses)
I started coaching in 2022. With George's materials and courses, I started marketing midst 2023. After 100 Instagram posts, I finally felt visible, things were getting better and my coaching slots were full.
One milestone was to publish my first book via self-publishing (KDP) with the help of George's course "From Blog to Book". Because of the tips, the launch did very well!
2024 (ABC Masterheart)
I noticed I don't like to coach too much, because I love it more to be creative among these platforms, creating courses, reaching a group, and not just one person at a time.
So, This year I plan on 100 videos on YouTube (or maybe the first half of those) and learning about YouTube and speaking (online and on stage). I want to start to post on LinkedIn, Pinterest, maybe TikTok, but especially on YouTube. I'll also continue on Instagram, with about 3–4 posts a week, and some stories.
My favorite pastimes are to walk in the beauty and solitude of nature, a long hot shower, a massage, and the inspiration of a good idea or insight.
