Hi! If you’re tired of all the clutter, then you’re in the right place.
I’m Sharon E. Hines. (The E is for Elizabeth.)
I’m a wife, daughter, sister, friend and mother who has been right where you are, surviving the trenches of motherhood and managing a household while trying to find some kind of work/life balance.
After years of the same old, same old, I couldn’t tolerate life as is: a crumbling marriage, declining health, and what felt like failure as a mom. It’s no wonder I reached a breaking point.
I quit my eighteen year long teaching career and started clearing all the clutter that overwhelmed me.
After several long and hard years, my marriage and health have improved, and I’m getting better at being me, at becoming.
That process has been quite the journey. I often compare it to walking through the wardrobe and witnessing a new world. Much like Narnia, this world is a place of possibility, restoration, and resurrection.
It’s a world I want you to experience.
It’s from this place I find myself turning around and extending my hand to you. If you’re looking for someone who will encourage and support you in making room for your heart’s desires, I’m your huckleberry.
It’s my hope that between the personal stories, my experience as a professional organizer, and my background in early childhood education, you’ll feel empowered to tend your space, schedule and soul so you can make room for what matters most.
Matt and I have been married 22 years. Our daughter, Hannah, is 21 and pursuing her nursing degree in California. She fell in love during her first year of college. So, it will be a while before she comes back to Texas.
We’re native Texans and have always lived in Texas. In fact, we’ve always lived in and around Houston. We’ve lived in our current home in The Woodlands for 13 years and have lived in this area for nearly 20 years.
We share our empty nest with Blackie the gray tabby and Britt who is the sweetest dog.
We love laughing, Tex-Mex, Sunday drives, and the beach.
If you feel weighed down by clutter and don’t know where to start, I’ve created a few resources I’m sure will help.
[one-half] What if you could reclaim your bedroom as your own and have the serene retreat you’ve been wishing for? How would it feel to have a closet full of clothes you wear and love? Imagine it, because it can happen. Here’s how.,,
Most people know how to sort their stuff. That’s not new information. But, most people get stuck when it comes to deciding what to keep. Trust me, #thestruggleisreal. That’s where I come in.
I put my best tips as a professional organizer in a tidy little cheat sheet. It will walk you through the decluttering process step-by-step so that you can avoid common mistakes and get the job done right. The good news is, most spaces can be decluttered in three to four hours. So, pick a room and let’s get started.
Home on Purpose: Mindful Living in a Hectic World
[one-half] I’m so proud of this book. One, because publishing a book was a childhood dream and two, because it has helped so many people stop the endless cycle of clutter, clean, repeat, and rediscover their former self that was buried somewhere beneath piles of laundry and “messy hair don’t care.” This top-selling book covers how to:
- declutter and organize any room in your house
- style your home like a decorator
- keep a tidy house, even with kids
- get more done in a day
- plus, you’ll get tons of free resources to help you do it all
If you’re ready to break free from survival mode and start creating a home and life you love, this book is for you.
Chaos to Calm: Organizing Help for Busy Moms
[one-half] I think all of us have a vision about how we’d like our days to go. It might be something like fitting in a stretch routine before everyone gets up and taking time to bullet journal. As the kids wake up and stumble into the kitchen, you have time to join them for breakfast. After breakfast, everyone gets dressed in the clothes they picked out the night before and heads out the door for work and school, with smiles on their faces.
Except, that rarely to never happens.
I can’t promise you an ideal day, but I can promise after going through this self-paced guide, you’ll feel more in control of your house instead of it (and the clutter) controlling you. If you’d love to get through a day with no more missing shoes, lost keys, forgotten bills or misplaced invitations, Chaos to Calm is for you.
I’m rooting for you!
