About




Welcome!

I'm Sarah and this is my backyard. Well...my virtual backyard anyway.

See that photo up top? That's me with my tribe, they are also my inspiration for writing. I'm a wife and a mother to three beautiful children. We homeschool and live an otherwise ordinary life in the city among the beautiful rolling prairies of Alberta.

Growing up in the church thought I knew God pretty well...that is, until I had to leave the safety of my parent's nest and struggle through real life. It wasn't until then that I had to learn to let go of my parent's safety and instead learn to trust God in the storm. In the last decade and a half my husband and I have faced an addiction crisis, loss of our unborn (there are three missing from my family photos), and struggled alongside my Mom while she battled cancer before going home to Heaven.

These struggles helped me to see a powerful, faithful God who is fully capable to transform, heal, comfort, and lead. They also helped me to see that there are hurting people in our communities who need to know of the hope and love we have for Christ.
My hope is to encourage and equip you to serve God in your very own backyard to whatever capacity God has equipped you with.
I can do all things through him who strengthens me. (Phil. 4:13)

Much Love,
Sarah
