Caregiving and the importance of caring for yourself along the way.

BFA promo

I recently had the privilege of sitting down with Ginny Priz as part of her 10-day video interview series called, “Beauty from the Ashes.”  In this segment, we discuss caregiving.  Specifically, the importance of caring for ourselves in the midst of caring for others.  I hope you will be blessed by the truth found within…that […]

What I learned from a dying woman in Haiti.

blessed

Her frail body lay motionless, but I could not mistake the pleading in her eyes.  Her arms were no larger than the width of two of my fingers side by side.  I could have fit both of her ankles in the singular grasp of just one of my hands.  I could feel every single one […]

Resolve to read these books in 2016

For the Love Book

As for me, I’ve made a life change: traded resolutions for goals.  But let’s be honest…most people still use the word resolution when they make that decision to do things differently each year.  In my case, I read these great books last year, so I’m passing them on to you to put on your MUST […]

What a glorious few weeks of family time we had over the holidays!  We hosted friends and family Christmas Eve for church, along with traditional “Advent Book” reading and Chicken Pot Pie dinner.  Christmas day we played games, watched movies, took walks, ate too much. We also had the abundant blessing of skiing/boarding in the […]

Love Your Neighbor Christmas Fudge

Over the years, my Mom’s Fudge has become renowned.  At least to those people lucky enough to get it delivered to their door at Christmas time.  Since my kids were little, I carried on the tradition of making Christmas fudge for others – teachers, neighbors, friends, family, doctors, dentists, pretty much anyone within arms reach […]

Live Like Jesus

Live Like Jesus

Yesterday marked my last Seasonings with Sarah live event.   It was wrought with emotion for me, but I also faced a bizarre episode of gout in my foot less than 12 hours before I was supposed to present this message.  Faithful praying friends walked beside me and a last minute video doctor visit allowed […]

His way, not my way

About a week ago I made a decision to self publish my book.   Hours later, a friend and I were chatting on the phone and she connected me to an acquisitions editor at a publishing house.  And days later, I found myself on the phone with her discussing my project. What an unexpected connection […]

Take it off! Ditch the world’s labels and wear God’s

Screen Shot 2015-11-20 at 11.41.56 AM

All the world’s a label these days.  We label conditions with words like ADHD, anxiety disorder, hyperactive.  We label women with words like stay-at-home-mom, working mom, dance mom, helicopter mom.  We label personality types with words like type A, sanguine, choleric, Achiever. We label kids with words like braniacs, popular kids, jocks, nerds, geeks, drama […]

Getting out of the place called doubt

question-mark-1175151

Yesterday I was working on my book when I was overcome with feelings of doubt.  Why am I even writing this?  Will anyone read it?  Surely there’s other, better resources out there.  No one needs my book.  And by the way, I’m a terrible writer.  Who would publish this?  I wonder. Do you have your own vulnerable spots […]
