Parenting Is Powerful

“I’m just texting to say ‘I quit’.” This was the message I sent my husband a couple of weeks ago when I was home with the boys, ready to lose my mind. He called me a few minutes later, a smile in his voice, to find out what exactly I was quitting. “Oh, I don’t know,” I whined. “Everything. Motherhood.”… Read the rest of this post at...

Every Mother is a Woman of Valor

“Thank you for making this dinner! But I think I like Dad’s spaghetti better.” It was so close to being a compliment. And given what I know about my cooking ability, I’ll take it.

Hi! I’m Sarah

Hi! I’m Sarah, wife to Rodney, mom to Asher and Pace, and writer—although I’m still trying to figure out how to do all three of those things. Sometimes I like books more than people, and all of the time I like French fries more than salad. I live in Georgia but I dream of the mountains.
