More than a Mom

A 4-week one-to-one program for the stay-at-home mom who wants to recoup her identity so she can lead her family with joy and purpose.

You’re a devoted mother and you want nothing but the best for your kids. You dote on them, care for them and ensure all their needs are met. And at the same time, you know you’re so much more than all this.

You’re ready to recoup your identity amidst motherhood so you can lead a happy household and a life rich with meaning.

But everything you’ve attempted so far has come up short and left you quite discouraged, wondering what’s wrong with you.

Maybe you’ve…


Listened to the top Mama podcasts


Bought stacks of parenting and personal development books that never got finished, or even started for that matter.


Worked with coaches who made empty promises and left you more confused than ever.


Tried to figure it out on your own, only to be discouraged by your lack of results.


Participated in an online program that left you to your own devises with no clear direction or support.

Oh sweet Mama, there’s nothing wrong with you.

What took me years and numerous dollars to recognize, is when wanting to implement change or bring something new into our lives, as moms, we’re up against some big opponents; some are obvious, others are extremely subtle.

Awareness of your opponents and how to counteract their influence insures sustainable, desired changes and your success!

You’re not alone (for real).

I’m Karen Gruber and I wanted to be a mom my whole life. Although I got to try my hand at step-parenting a teenager, I didn’t have the chance to be a mom until I was 39. I became totally consumed with this new role of mom – to the detriment of my marriage, my health, and my daughter. I buckled under the pressure and expectations of being the perfect mom and that no sacrifice was too big for the sake of my daughter.

But I had it all wrong…

The day I realized I was more than a mom was the day I became a GREAT mom and became the woman I wanted to be.

And you can too! I believe this with all my heart.

After 15+ years working with women and moms like you, plus lessons learned from my own motherhood journey, I created this program to help you live in your zone of brilliance, positively affecting all those around you.

Picture this…

You no longer feel lost as a mom and a woman, for your life is rich with clear direction and fulfillment.

You’re no longer kept up at night by what you perceive to be your shortcomings and you’re finally getting the sleep you desperately need.

You no longer try to fill the emptiness with unhealthy coping strategies; instead you’re filled from within, living a joyful and purposeful life.

You live, love and lead with certainty and conviction—no more second guessing every decision.

You have a renewed passion and engagement with your life without having to do more, be more or push so hard.

Introducing More Than A Mom

A 4-week one-to-one program for the mom with young children who has chosen to honor motherhood as her primary focus at this time in her life.

This innovative program moves you into actively recouping your identity amidst motherhood. Resulting in a healthy, happy, and loving household and a life rich with meaning.

This isn’t the program that covers a bunch of strategies and life-hacks, keeping you in your head wondering if you’re getting it right.

This is a partnership from day 1. Together we’ll craft the experience specifically to your needs so you can achieve your desired outcomes.

Stage #1: Sever the Manipulative Grip of Your Inner Mean Girl

We’re our own worst critics, and to make any lasting change you need the ability to dissolve your Inner Mean Girl’s impact so you can cultivate a strong sense of resilience, self-worth, and a beautiful gentleness with yourself as you move forward with the changes you desire.

In this stage you’ll…

  • Dissolve your Inner Mean Girl’s negative impact, so you can hear, trust, and act on your own inner wisdom.
  • Discern which of the top 8 extremely damaging habits your IMG is in charge of and implement potent practices to align yourself with the woman you choose to be.
  • Learn why your IMG thinks she’s “keeping you safe” and apply the dynamic process that allows you to take the risks she’s been shielding you from so you can flourish and be in control of your life.
  • End the constant comparison to other moms and finally parent on your own terms.
  • Feel significant and confident in your role as a mom and easily make decisions that support the well-being of yourself and your family.

Stage #2: Set and Preserve Better Boundaries

Once you’re aware of and know how to manage your Inner Mean Girl, the next step is to implement better boundaries so you can have less stress and distraction, have more energy and enthusiasm, focus on enhancing your life, and make room for the people who enrich your life.

In this stage, you’ll:

  • Clear up any misconceptions and confusion about what healthy boundaries are … and how to employ them.
  • Create and enforce healthy boundaries and be able to have difficult conversations with candor, clarity, and compassion.
  • Say “NO” with grace to what doesn’t serve you.
  • Be valued and appreciated for your opinions and contributions to family and home life.

Reclaim Your Identity


Now that you’ve set the foundation, it’s time to lean into what makes you uniquely, wonderfully and fully expressed as a mom and a woman.

In this stage, you’ll:

  • Recoup your identity amidst motherhood, resulting in a life rich with meaning.
  • Understand how ‘someday’ is just another block holding you back and learn a powerful practice to inspire action today so you can make your desires a reality now.
  • Find ways to add more joy into your day … even during life’s ups and downs so you can choose and experience joy on an amplified level.
  • Shift from struggle and sacrifice to personal fulfillment without guilt.
  • Take steps into your first soul project that will feed your spirit and allow you to express your unique, creative essence in a new way so you can bring your original talents into the world.
  • Patiently nurture and mentor your children to be empowered, healthy, and happy.

If you’ve lost yourself in the selfless devotion of mothering, it’s not too late to turn on the joy.

Let’s do this!

If you can say yes to at least 4 of the statements below, then you’ll definitely benefit from our
work together:


  • You’re tired of hiding your voice and being shamed for your power and truth.
  • You know you have a big vision for your life, but you feel confused about how to articulate and act on that vision.
  • You’re curious and willing to take risks.
  • You feel, or others make you feel, that your voice, feelings, intuition and inspired actions don’t matter.
  • You’re ready to take personal responsibility for the life you’re creating.
  • You want to experience the ripple effect of your power and your voice in this world.

Sweet Mama, there’s no better time to create a life filled with meaning.

It’s time for you to…

  • Rediscover the raw power and beauty that lives deep within you.
  • Live a more joyful, harmonious, and fulfilled life.
  • Say “NO” with grace to what doesn’t serve you.
  • Feel truly alive, cherished, and appreciated for your contribution to family.
  • Experience joy, peace, and passion. Every. Single. Day.

I know this can be scary, and that fear may have kept you still and silent for too long. I want you to know that it’s your birthright to have the life you desire. And now is the time for you to take this first step and claim the life to be the woman and the mom you know you were born to be.

I thought you might ask…


Oh sweet mama. This program will not only revolutionize your mothering … it will empower your children beyond anything you can currently imagine.

You have to know and feel the truth before you can see it. I’m going to help you see clearly so you can step into joy, bliss and the extraordinary beautiful life you’re meant to live.


The hardest part of any growth is to have the support of people around you. My guess is that your husband is afraid for you or he is worried that you’ll be investing money in this program and not making it work.

What if you could prove him wrong? I know that you can, so let’s get started.

Hey, I’m happy to have him on the phone with us when we chat, if it helps. I can answer his questions and help you both make a decision that works for the both of you. Just click on the button below to schedule a call.


How much is your happiness worth to you? It’s a serious question. Think about this for a second.

Up until this point you’ve tried to find your purpose and live with more alignment, unsuccessfully. You’ve read the personal development blogs, bought the fancy spiritual magazines and listened to the mama podcasts that dished out lots of great advice.

And yet… you’re here. Still searching. Yearning. Dreaming.

Your dream is worth any money you care to invest in yourself. I’m serious. When you can live in full alignment with your values and know that you’re doing your life’s purpose work you can only be truly happy and fulfilled.

Still have questions? Then let’s jump on a call and talk through them! I would love to meet you.

Erin, Colorado Springs, CO

Karen really understood what I was feeling, I didn’t realize how much my choices were disempowering me and how miserable it was making me feel. I was so used to it. But once you know what peace of mind feels like, you wonder why you let yourself feel so miserable for so long. This is such a beautiful program Karen created. You can feel the love she put into it. It isn’t a self-improvement course — it’s a life-changing transformational practice.

Karen has a way of relating to people on a personal level that makes everything easier. It doesn’t matter what you are struggling with; through this course you soon realize you are NOT alone, and feel empowered to take control of your perception about how worthy you are. This changed the way I think about motherhood but more importantly, how I think about myself and my soul.”


D.M., Denver, CO
“My main hesitation about working with you Karen was being vulnerable and having to really acknowledge I wasn’t super mom and even scarier… that it was ok. Karen, you are such an amazing mother, friend and person. I can’t think of anyone who I would trust more with such intimate knowledge. Since working with you I’ve noticed a willingness to reframe my negative thoughts. It’s very freeing to know I can make time for myself in small ways which feel meaningful. I am now more confident in what I am modeling for my daughter. Permission isn’t just ok, it’s necessary to ensure I demonstrating to my daughter that it is just as important to put yourself first. I really liked our honest, laugh filled and frank conversations. I looked forward to every call and in between calls I felt energized and more confident. I felt more solution driven and found myself looking for opportunities to act on my goals. Coaching with you was fun, freeing and impactful. I can’t think of a better way to spend my time. I would absolutely recommend this service to anyone who is feeling stagnant in their parenting. Specifically I think this service will speak to any mother of a daughter.“
Melanie P., Needham, MA
“What really surprised me about working with Karen was how much I was able to open up and discover about myself, not just about my own core beliefs, but about what I wanted to create in my life and my business, and do so openly. I didn’t think I would be able to reach down and find the truth so easily, but with the support of Karen it happened for me.”
