Welcome, I am so glad we found each other!
My name is Lamora Coons. I am the creator and writer for Save Time Make Time and a homeschooling stay-at-home mom to three wonderful and ever-hungry kids age 5 and under.
When I first became a mom, I was more than overwhelmed! It took me a long time just to figure out how to take care of my baby AND get a shower. Forget clean clothes and clean dishes!
Because of this feeling of overwhelm, I gave up on my intellectual and creative pursuits of reading and writing (hobbies and work that I had previously identified myself by).
After two years of this, I felt like I had become a soulless and depressed “mom blob” with no identity of my own.
Housework overwhelmed me.
I wanted everything to be perfect and I never had the time to accomplish all the things I intended.
I longed to have time to pursue my life goals and have a “pinterest-perfect” house.
But it was impossible, so why even try?
My home began to become a reflection of myself: a downright depressing dump.
Slowly, I began to realize that I was using perfectionism as an excuse to procrastinate.
I wanted so much more for my family. I wanted so much more for myself. How could I ever achieve my dreams of being a writer and my children to witness competent adulthood and happiness if I kept on this path?
I decided I just had to somehow make time for everything I needed and wanted to do.
I prayed. Hard.
I realized I no longer needed to be a “mom blob” full of a can’t-do attitude. I could be a great wife AND mom AND homemaker AND writer because that is what God called me to do.
The same skills I had used to be a great student, I began to apply to my mom life.
I prioritized my duties, stopped procrastinating, and motivated myself with reminders of what I really wanted.
I became a bustling momma wielding time management skills, cleaning hacks, and fast recipes.
From there, I built schedules and tweaked time-saving systems that made the household run more efficiently.
Soon enough, I had clean clothes actually in the closets, a clean sink almost every morning, I was homeschooling my oldest kids 5x a week, I was baking homemade friggin bread every week, and I had time to read for pleasure and even write.
I was happy. I was myself again.
I knew that I had “made it” when my friends would ask me how I did it. I love to share with them and now I want to share what I have learned, and am continuing to learn, with you.
I want to empower you to achieve your dreams and knock down your obstacles.
