Finding Time to Hold Dearly
What could you do with 30 more hours a week? (Scroll down)
How many times have you said things like . . .
"I can't stand all this clutter!"
"Just one more hurdle and then I can relax."
"I will start working out on Monday."
"I have no idea what to make for dinner."
"I just wish I were more consistent."
"We need to get organized."
"I never have the time to work on that project."
"I don't know how to tell that person 'No'."
What if your life could be different?
All Classes are Self- Paced!
Some of Sarah's earliest memories involving decorating her childhood bedroom, every square inch was considered and when she could not find what she needed, she would simply DIY it, not realizing that this wasn't normal! This continued on into high school and people began asking her to design their events and homes. It was her husband who suggested she switch her degree to what she loved most and after graduating with a degree in interior design from the London Guildhall University, she settled into a life of homeschooling her children and taking design clients on the side.
After a few years in the industry, though, it became clear that it was the DIY crowd she wanted to work with most! She missed the resourcefulness and creativity of achieving the professional look for a fraction of the cost.
Today, she teaches interior design online at She Holds Dearly and in her Behind the Scenes coaching group full time. She manages a small farm, all the while, renovating a 100+ year old farmhouse with her husband and four kids. She is passionate about teaching women the skills they need to make their homes beautiful and easy to maintain!
My goal is to create a life I don't need a vacation from.
"You have no idea how much I needed to hear every single thing in this course at this point in my life. I have been burning the candle at both ends for months (years?) striving for balance between my young family and blogging career. My word of the year on my blog was even "balance" for 2016! Long story short, I did not achieve "balance" and "do it all" this year- and I'm leaving the year worn out, unhealthy, and completely overwhelmed. After listening to your words, I realize that I have been going about time management all wrong, and my eyes have been completely opened by the prioritization methods you described. I feel like I just had a heart-to-heart with a good friend (who happens to be an organization guru!), and I feel so encouraged and inspired with my new plan that you helped me to create! I know this course is a resource I will keep returning to as I implement these new-to-me methods. I am so thankful that you shared this wisdom and I look forward to making positive changes to my routines and overall life."

We will analyze balancing, prioritizing, multi-tasking, batching, scheduling and planners, while covering the ways these productivity and organizational methods are often found lacking.
We will learn ways to say "no" and why we say "yes" when we really mean "no".
We will discuss how to gracefully recover from the inevitable schedule changes and how to stop people pleasing.
"First off, let me just tell you this was absolutely fabulous. Even my husband has been listening in on it and he loves it, as well. I truly felt that this course was God sent for me. . . I felt like with all my praying this last year and wanting to find an answer for my blog and my life that God has finally given me the tools. Not to sound so dramatic, but I'm serious. I mean we already have a very busy life, my husband and I work opposite schedules, considering I work Friday-Sunday...and we are both trying to run our home, start side businesses and plan for the future. It all seems to work most days and then other days it just seems like our foundation is crumbling.
Anyhow, I truly believe this course is going to change my life in 2017, between getting healthy for me (the oxygen mask theory) and become more organized than ever!
Your E-course is going to be such a blessing to so many women. BTW your voice is perfection . . . it has such a calming and reassuring way about it."

Always find time for the things that make you happy to be alive.
"This has been my very first e-course and I am so impressed with the materials and information offered through She Holds Dearly. The ideas given were useful and practical; I am excited to really delve into making these things work in my daily routine. I have already caught myself looking at my day completely differently. Thank you, Sarah, for the feeling that you and I were having a cup of coffee (or tea!) together! It was wonderful and enjoyable!"

More Time, More Joy, Less Overwhelm
- My priorities. As I listened to you talk about this section, it really hit home with me.
- Saying no. I’ve been working on this for a while and I needed this reassurance that I’m not a bad person for saying no.
- Creating a daily schedule.
- Teaching my kids good work ethic.
- Chore charts, jurisdictions, and incentives.
- Planning more one-on-one bonding times with my kids.
- Once a month menu. Love this idea!"

Everyone gets 24 hours a day, why are some people so much more productive than others?
"Girlfriend, you really have something special here and I think anyone would be lucky to be able to get their hands on such valuable, life changing information! Before listening to this course, the thought of a daily schedule was scary. As you said, I feared the thought of being inflexible, not getting to talk to my mama on the phone, and getting to watch Netflix! You have showed me that just because you're on a daily schedule, you can still be flexible because after all, you build it according to what's important to you. Thank you so much for this, Sarah, I fully intend on implementing more of your tips into our everyday lives."
Kalyn Abrams, Sincerely Sweetpea
It's not just about fulfilling our responsibilities, its about doing it peacefully and having margin left over.
"I've spent the past 4 days following my evening routine, morning routine, working on our menu and so many other details. It's already been such a blessing and amazing to see how much I have accomplished of what really truly matters to me and I can't wait to see what lies ahead. . . and my family is already grateful for how my days are more about my essentials than the urgent.
All thru lesson 3 about hugging a porcupine I kept telling [my husband]," you have to listen to this". There is so much more to this course than just creating time. . . It has the potential to be such a freeing, life-breathing paradigm shift for women as we walk out God's calling on our lives."
