The Healthy Happy Soul exists to champion mothers and motherhood. Our mission is to empower women to be healthier and happier mamas as they pursue Jesus.
It's a place where we cheer on women as they discover, value and embrace the happiness, wellbeing and life in full colour that God created each and every one of us to enjoy.
Cause #mumlife ain't for the feint-hearted and we know that when mums are happier and healthier, the world around them reaps the benefits too!
Hi there beautiful lady, I'm so glad you're here!
In case we haven't officially met, I'm Stace! A life loving wife, mama, fitness instructor, wellness coach, author, speaker and the visionary heart behind The Healthy Happy Soul .
Life enthusiast. Positive quote junkie. Diehard optimist. Lover of sunrise beach walks, cups of tea & Jesus. Yep that's me.
And I'm on a mission to champion motherhood and mums in their happiness and wellbeing, one mama at a time.
BUT THINGS HAVEN'T ALWAYS BEEN THIS WAY
It's been a pretty wild ride over the years to get to this healthy, happy place where I love my life. I journeyed with chronic fatigue syndrome in my teens where I was extremely underweight, depressed and isolated which was the catalyst for some pretty self-destructive behaviour.
From there I found myself pregnant at just 16 which spiralled me further into chaos; binge eating and drinking, overweight, resentful, a reckless party girl.
Stuck in deep unhappiness within the life I had created for myself, and intense self-loathing, I joined a gym. But once I did start to get fitter, I became completely fitness and body image obsessed....
Yep, it's been a journey of extremes alright.
So wherever you're at in your happiness and wellbeing journey beautiful lady, believe me I get it. There ain't no judgement here.
But that's why I value so much the simplicity, balance and beauty of the life I've created right now.
In amongst the mess that was my life, I learned how to own and embrace my situation, how to make the most of this thing called life no matter what it has thrown your way, the value of investing in our happiness and wellbeing, and the power of a holistic approach to health with God at the helm.
After such a profound positive impact on my own life, and the ripple on effect to those around me (especially my daughter), I dedicated my life to learning everything I could and developing expertise in this area. It's the reason I wake up each and every morning.
I'm so so so very grateful for the friends, family members, mentors and professionals who came alongside me on my journey and all that they've taught me. Now it's my turn to share the gift I've been given. To pass it on.
AND THE BEST PART IS, NOW YOU CAN EXPERIENCE THIS LIFE-CHANGING, LIFE-GIVING TRANSFORMATION FOR YOURSELF!
I really hope that wherever you find yourself on your life journey hasn't been as wild a rise as mine, but we're all a work in progress right beautiful lady? We weren't meant to do this thing called life alone, especially #mumlife. We all need someone in our corner to be able to enjoy life as our very best; to be the happiest, healthiest, most whole and hopeful version of ourselves.
I consider it the greatest privilege to share my life lessons and expertise to educate and empower others. Let's work together to unleash you into living life happier and healthier and in full colour mama.
Because I know you were made for more....
Fave TV show?
Seinfeld. I'm a huge fan, I can't get enough of it (not that there's anything wrong with that!) Give me the plot and I can probably name the episode and maybe even the season it's from. I've loved it ever since I was a teenager (thanks dad!). You either love it or you just don't get it.
Tea or coffee?
Tea, all kinds, and extra hot! I just can't do coffee. Even when I was in my final sleepless months of full-time uni as a working single mum, I just did two teabags per cup to give me the extra caffeine boost (that's before I found a love for herbals). If there's no tea in sight, a chai latte on almond please!
Fave quote & verse?
Seriously that's a hard one, there's just too many! But...
'Be yourself, everyone else is already taken' ~ Oscar Wilde
'And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose' ~ Romans 8:28
I'm pretty mean with a stock whip in my hand. I have my own which I got for my birthday one year, and may have even been on the whip cracking team at school (yes that's a thing when you grow up in the country).
and just for fun...
Our commitment to impact
We are committed to empowering women to be all that God has created them to be. For us, that looks like coming alongside solo mums on their #mumlife journey when they need someone to believe in them and cheer them on most.
We do this by offering women the opportunity to experience our one day coaching intensives or our online course completely for FREE. Mums flying solo are able to apply for these places via our online application form or are referred by our partner non-profit organisations.
