I collect journals with big intents to fill them.

I listen to music wishing I could write it.

My thoughts often come out as narrative.

But sometimes I recognize all you can do is watch the sunset and not try to record it.

This blog is a hope that maybe I can make sense out of all of that.

And that maybe I can find my “nitch.”

My name is Sarah, by the way.

I’m a writer, thinker, crafter, and seamstress and have been for as long as I can remember. I wrote my first short stories with crayons and colored pencils. I began my crafting career with egg cartons and popsicle sticks that my mom meticulously recycled. I was taught how to sew at age twelve and spent my high school years upcycling my wardrobe.

I graduated college with a B.A. in Communication from The Master’s College. I chose Print Media for my emphasis, which was essentially creative writing. I have taken some classes in Library and Information Technology and worked for 5 years as a Library Assistant at a vocational college. I now work part-time from home as a Social Media Manager and office clerk for a small, local business, but turn most of my attention to my home and my two children, by and far my priorities. I’m currently pursuing home schooling with the grand dream of raising intelligent and artistic children. Mainly cause they got some good genes from their Dad. ;)

I am married to the smartest, kindest, most creative man I have ever met. His name is Sam. We met in a poetry writing class. We love watching and critiquing movies, listening to music, and reading together. We had our first daughter, Cailyn, in 2010. Two and a half years later we brought a second daughter, Juniper, into the world. They are such a treasured, indispensably part of our lives, continually keeping us laughing, and on our toes, and teaching me much-needed flexibility and patience.

My worldview is very much shaped by the Christian faith, in the protestant/reformed tradition to be specific. But that is something I am constantly working through, learning more about, and being challenged further by. You’ll see that here, I imagine.
