The space inside the four walls we call home is sacred and what happens there matters. It matters a lot. We can’t experience a true sense of home, or share that home with family and friends, if we’re trapped in a hectic world. If you’re ready to break free and start creating a home and life you love, this book is for you!
Sharon Hines grew up the oldest of four kids in a small house on Victoria Street in Houston, Texas. It was from the top of the metal slide in her backyard where she discovered her love of writing; spending afternoons making up poems, penning diary entries and crafting short stories.
Always fascinated by people and their culture, she majored in sociology at the University of Houston but, feeling limited by career options, ended up graduating with a bachelor's degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. After eighteen years of teaching elementary school, she left the classroom and pursued her childhood dream of writing and publishing.
A love of home, people, teaching and writing inspired her first book, Home on Purpose: Mindful Living in a Hectic World. Sharon also writes on her blog, Mrs. Hines' Class, where she teaches busy moms how to create a home and life they love.
Sharon resides in The Woodlands, TX with her husband where they are getting used to their newly empty nest. She considers herself an introverted extrovert who is partial to red wine and loves live music. Her home and the beach are in a tie for favorite “happy places” and she loves to laugh.
Think about the life you want. Then ask yourself what it is about that lifestyle you're drawn to. Often times, it's not actually the house, the car, or the money. It's about what those things represent: freedom, comfort, relaxation. The good news is those luxuries don't depend on how much money you have or how big your house is. You can create a sense of freedom right where you are with what you already have, starting with your mindset. How do you shift your mindset? Try finding at least one thing you're grateful for each day; gratitude has a way of opening doors to the life we want.
