I’m Sarah.

I’ve been married to Cam since 2007 and together we parent two kiddos: a daughter and a son, both of whom we adopted at birth. I tell more about our adoption stories starting here.

We live in the Sunshine State, where Cam pastors and I do sundry creative things: mothering, writing, mentoring, social media managing, and Bible study teaching.

If we were meeting for the first time in a social setting, I’d be doing really terrible at small talk right now and would probably ask you about personality theories or travel recommendations or your favorite book in any genre you like.

I’m a 6w5 on the Enneagram and an INTJ, I prefer not to travel (homebody for life!), and my favorite book to read over and over again is Little Women. Or maybe The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.

I like iced coffee with vanilla cream, blue fine point pens, actual walks on the beach, and fresh empty journals. I’ve been filling them since the fifth grade, when my teacher assigned us a daily writing prompt. I still have my diary from fifth grade (it’s mortifying). I loved high school research papers and majored in English at University of North Florida. WORDS ARE MY JAM.

I love taking photos of my kids, hosting people for dinner (probably it will be tacos. It’s usually tacos.), and at the end of the day, crawling into bed with my snuggly husband and a good book is my favorite thing.

I’m glad you’re here, whatever brought you, and I hope you leave encouraged!

the work of faith

I believe God is real - that He existed in the person of Jesus Christ who died and was resurrected - that He indwells His people as the Holy Spirit. I have walked through seasons of intense doubt and I have experienced chronic uncertainty. The faith I grew up with has shaped me deeply and the faith I walk in as an adult has been tested and tried - by anger, depression, infertility, broken relationships, and heartsickness. I am not done hoping in Jesus and it is my eager expectation that I will not be put to shame, as I press onward and upward with the Good King.

Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.
— Romans 5:1-5
And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”
— Revelation 21:3-5
