Mommy Sabbatical -- Teri Miller


I'm a heart-on-my-sleeve, granola-crunchy, soapbox-preaching, religion-rebelling, badass-mommy-of-seven, Christ-seeker.

I believe being a Mom is the most profoundly important job in the world. I'm currently getting a Masters degree in Psychology (Child Development), and am pursuing a research project on Fatigue Mitigation in Motherhood...cause, by golly, we mothers are epidemically exhausted, and it's time to do somethin' about it!

Wife of Kevin Miller ( http://www.FreeAgentUprising.com )
Mommy to Caleb Daniel (almost 19), Autumn Grace (17), Eliza Joy (14), Ian Nathanael (9), Canyon Joshua (7), Serene Eliana (5), and Nekoda Scott (3)

Mommy Sabbatical provides a variety of restful, rejuvenating retreats designed to give moms the break they so desperately need!

Profile Information

How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
Daughter-in-law of Dan & Joanne...married to their oldest son, Kevin!
I'm just now getting plugged in here, as I launch my first-ever business endeavor, Mommy Sabbatical, LLC.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
Chief Collaboration Coordinator (and owner) of Mommy Sabbatical, LLC...
Pursuing my master's degree in psychology, Child Development Research focus.
Above all - Mommy to 7 amazing kids!
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
There are so many retreats, books, speakers, & programs out there, trying to offer moms the "five easy steps to being a better mother."

But seriously? Moms are so stinkin' exhausted, what they need more than all the be-a-better-mother-programs in the world, is a good night's sleep! We feel guilty enough about the ways we don't measure up; the cold-cereal dinners, the last-mom-to-the-field-trip angst, and the early morning get-dressed-yell-fest... we certainly don't need another to-do list. We need some rest, a little pampering, downtime, and a shower without fear of toddler-meltdown, for crying out loud!

Mommy Sabbatical is an opportunity for rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation. There is no agenda, no study, no speaker, no guilt-inducing message to take home.

The unique, remarkable, VITAL message and offering of Mommy Sabbatical is this:
Take a break from the ones you love, so you can love 'em better.
You are worth it. You know you need it. LOVE the Mommy you are!

(your kids will thank you later....)
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
There are about 5 or 6 books rolling around in my head, and twice as many soapbox speeches...mostly about motherhood, being a woman, and the guilt-games that keep us imprisoned. My heart about bursts with love & longing for children to be held & encouraged - only eclipsed by how much love & longing I have for MOMS to be held & encouraged!!

One of my biggest personal goals is financial freedom.
I am daring to hope that Mommy Sabbatical, LLC is going to be the tool for finally bringing financial peace into my life and family.

I also dream of creating a business that runs independently of my constant presence and micro-managing...so that my daughters can one day inherit a well-functioning business to own or sell.

I see Mommy Sabbatical as an avenue for achieving several of my personal goals:
- publish books
- inspire and encourage women through speaking at conferences
- financial freedom
- personal growth, confidence, and independence
- security of savings and retirement accounts
- pursuit of doctorate, and research on fatigue mitigation in motherhood
- personal practice of Mommy Sabbatical concepts, as I parent my seven kids
What would you say are your strongest talents? How are you 'wired' and what can you offer to the world (it's OK if you don't know yet, but knowing is key to pursuing your dreams!)?
Nothing sets my heart a'beating like reaching out to an exhausted, overwhelmed mom with a gentle hand & reassuring words of hope & encouragement.

I'm wired high I, high D - love being with people, energized by goal-oriented projects, not very detail-oriented, and even less steady/even-keel. Yikes. My poor husband. I know, right?!
Do you have a website presence anywhere?
Are you interested in finding a better job, starting a business, growing your current business, writing a book, blogging, podcasting, coaching, speaking, sales & marketing, or something else?
If you have a product or service to promote (now or in the near future) this is your shot to state it! Say all you'd like:
Mommy Sabbatical: Take a break from the ones you love, so you can love 'em better! (your kids will thank you later...)

Science of Mommy Sabbatical

I was up way too late last night. Working on the budget; woohoo.

Then the sweet, melodic, squawling voice of my oh-so-precious toddler woke me early this morning. Apparently his sister wasn’t making Aragorn the Lego-man say the right…


The Trust Leap

I’m not a very trusting person.

Stuffing and pretending and complaining only get you so far, y’know? And after 44 years of leaping frantically back & forth between control and victimization -

I’m realizing how little I really know about trust.

So I…


First-Ever Mommy Sabbatical Retreat!

  So it’s the big day. 

I’m at the lodge by myself; 2:30pm, three hours before the first group of Mommy Sabbatical guests is set to arrive. And it’s a complete blizzard outside. We’re talking total whiteout.

No one’s gonna come. They’re all gonna want a refund. This is gonna utterly bomb. Sh#&.

Then Kristy shows up. Early. To help set up, to bring…


"Giving My Life to Jesus" -- What Does This Look Like For My Kids???

Posted on January 27, 2009 at 11:42am 3 Comments

As in many Christian families, our children have been inundated with the Word of God, prayer, worship music, etc, since the day they were born. Kevin & I have always prayed over them, with them, and for them. We've stayed fairly consistent with having family devotions and prayer time since the oldest kids were toddlers. The children have seen & experienced first-hand the miraculous, providing, healing Hand of God in our lives. They all know & sing a handful of hymns & worship… Continue

thanks for the friend request. I find essential oils are amazing for helping with fatigue and motherhood.  Emotional Healing these guys wrote an amazing book all about using oils for addressing a multitude of emotions we all deal with.  I don't check in here often enough but thanks for connecting!

Sorry Teri for taking so long to accept your friend request. I had a laptop stolen making it difficult to get on here. By the way, do you have any conferences you plan to attend in the near future?

Hi Teri, 

Thanks for the friend request! I'm honored that Dan suggested we talk. He has had a tremendous influence on my business and my life! I'm so grateful for Dan and Joanne. :)

I'm happy to visit with you about your book, but yes, the 8 Weeks to Authorship program is a great place to start. It will help you develop clarity about your book project and create an outline and plan so you can actually get it done. I also offer one-on-one coaching if you need/want personal guidance and input throughout your project.

As far as editing goes, I offer what I call developmental editing. It's in depth and really is meant to get your manuscript in the best, most professional condition before publishing. My fee includes a copy editor (before layout) and a round with a proof reader (after layout) so you end up having three different people review the book. 

If you have questions or just want to chat, we can connect on Skype or via email. 

I hope it's warming up in Colorado. Just seeing pictures of all that snow makes me cold! :)

Hi Terri,

I wanted to send a quick welcome from the Write it Forward group. We're glad you're here... as you can tell by the celebration of you being the 1500th member! 

The group's discussion forum is packed with information. It’s a great place to ask questions and to get feedback on your work and ideas. If you haven't already, jump into the conversations and let us know how we can help you reach your writing goals.

Happy writing!

Erin Casey

Would you be interested a visitor builder group? It is designed to get more actual visitors to your blog. Let me know and I will send you the link. It is simple and completely free.

You do have to promote it yourself. That would be part of why it is FREE.

Hi Teri!
I am retiring from being a Nanny for 20yrs. To read about you that motherhood is a vocation is wonderful. I have been a " mom " by profession and have to agree with you that it has been the most rewarding job ever. Now I want to follow my dream, fashion design.
