I am so glad you’re here. Breathe in deep, there’s always room at the table.
I want you to know that I am for you and with you and cheer you on as I shift your gaze so that you can know how very loved you are. You need to know this.
Every day, our hearts filter through messages that beckon us to the world’s way of keeping up, trying harder, staying strong, doing it all. We forget who we really are and find ourselves believing instead that we’re not good enough, don’t have enough to offer, don’t measure up. Marriage and motherhood can be exhausting and we wonder if we’re the only one barely keeping it together or struggling in our faith or searching to find both purpose and hope in the midst of life’s hard.
We long to be whole and we long to be fully present with God and our people and our ordinary days but can get so tangled up in all of the things.
What if there was another way?
I believe that even in the midst of the hard road, there is always, always another way: The way that whispers relief and hope and courage and grace. I have learned that if we can shift our vision just a bit and look for God’s presence in the hard moments as well as in our ordinary days, we end up finding courage waiting for us too, beckoning us into our truest self.
I believe that leaning into the way of grace, the way of freedom, the way of bravery helps us to experience the sacredness of our common lives. This is a little rebellious, but I assure you, it is the most life-giving way.
I write here to help us chase after that better way. I hope you’ll join me.
And so friend, I am so glad you’re here.
Settle in, take a breath.
We’re in it together.
For a little more about the girl behind the blog, here ya go:
I’m Sarah- mama to 3 darling and feisty girls and wife to the boy that I fell in love with when I was 18 years old.
I love coffee. Really, I do. I have tried to kick the caffeine addiction, but the love is too great. Gas station coffee, diner, Starbucks, it is all the same to me.
I am an ENFP- big dreams, big passions, big risk-taking, big possibilities in this world, love people big, love to be involved in many things… but “the details of everyday life are seen as trivial drudgery.” hah! Maybe that’s why I’m so terrible at the dishes and laundry but am completely game to dream up a new project to tackle!
I drive a minivan. I swore I never would, but they are just too darn convenient. We give her the slow-clap sometimes, we love her so dearly.
I am a die hard Denver Broncos fan. Born and raised, cheered for them since I was a babe.
I don’t really love candy, but if you give me any combination of dark chocolate and caramel, you might as well have my heart.
I am an old soul. My dad once told me I was born in the wrong decade and I took it as the highest of compliments. Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, and Etta James are all I ever listen to.
I love the mountains. Rock climbing, backpacking, hiking, strolling with a 2-year-old through the dirt of a trail… any combination of the above makes my soul sing.
I’m a military wife. In our early marriage, we did the Army Ranger thing but now my husband serves as an Army Chaplain. Love it.
And last but very most importantly~ I love Jesus. Completely, with my everything, and would be flat on my face without his grace and strength and hope and promise.
SO GLAD that you’re here. I hope you find a safe space here as we all become more fully who we are.
