My name is Sarah. I wake up hearts through words and keep them in a state of wonder. I believe in their ability to cultivate a spark that inspires and challenges readers to see the world with a wider and deeper lens.
My Mission: To discover God’s goodness through the struggles and surprises of this life while finding beauty along the way.
I Want: to give you permission to access the deep places of your heart and find a place to grapple with the hard questions of life and faith, while allowing God access to those places for a closer encounter with His love.
My husband works with his hands. He uses many different tools, depending on the project. Sometimes it will be a tile saw, sometimes a wrench, sometimes a crowbar, and everything else in between. It’s been interesting learning from his craft. I’ve learned that as a writer, I work from my toolbelt, pulling out different ways of sharing words depending on my situation.
Here are a few of them where you’ll find writing that appears on my own site as well as other publications, and stories I tell for FCA.
For The People- Nonprofit: Articles and stories of life-changing transformation, ministry impact, and features on people and causes for nonprofit organizations, giving voice to their mission and highlighting personal profiles.
My Life Lens: My thoughts and feelings, exposed confessional writing on how I live within this world and my ever-evolving faith through the journey.
Words To The World: Wor that has been published in books, literary journals, and online publications.
Awake My Heart: Personal reflections between me and God dealing with the height, depth, breadth, length and deeper caverns of my heart and its awakening.
Grappling for Good: Excerpts from my book-in-progress of the same title, looking for good in the unexpected and upside-down.
I believe that God created imagination to truly see His handiwork. I believe that we are all desiring to be seen, known and loved. I believe we have the power to impact lives more than we think we do. And I believe that we must continuously reach for the heavens, crave connection to Him who has the power to be and do immeasurably more than we can ask or imagine.
Slow down. Breathe. Uncover the heartbeats of the earth. Our world is fragile and breathtaking, strong and staggering. I want to capture this life in the most honest and beautiful way possible.
This is my story, and I hope you, too, will find a piece of your own in these pages. My prayer is simple: Awake, my heart. Awake to the stirrings within, the whisper of He who breathed His love in you. Wake me with Your words, Lord. Awake my heart into Your world.
