We can all relate to stories, because our lives are made of them. Our chapters may look different in the details, but we all share in love, laughter, pain, and death.
My purpose and prayer for this blog is to inspire strength and encourage faith.
Sarah, and her husband, Mark have been married 16 years, and live in Waco with their three children. Sarah grew up in Coppell, Texas (a Dallas suburb), and graduated from Baylor University with a BBA in Marketing in 2000. Sarah began her career in Sales, Marketing, and Advertising, and spent five years in the corporate business. She then chose to stay home when her first two children were born. In 2009, Sarah took on the balancing act of being a business owner while maintaining the role of “stay at home” mom with two children ages one and two. Sarah’s enjoyed working in the beauty and skincare industry while creating and implementing business strategies. After seven years of juggling these roles, she ad Mark sold the business and I have enjoyed taking time over the last year to prepare for the next stage of their crazy life.
Sarah’s passion for music runs deep. She has been leading praise and worship in different capacities since the age of thirteen. She and Mark are members of First Baptist Church Woodway where she is on the praise team, and we has the blessing to serve in different areas of ministry. Over the years, Sarah been gifted with opportunities to create music, and to work with organizations such as the American Family Radio and Gospel Music Association, while releasing original music an independent artist within the Christian Contemporary genre.
Over the years, Sarah has loved getting to know the women of Waco by being involved in organizations such as Junior League, and MOPS (Mothers of Pre-Schoolers). These experiences, along with being a mom, have given her a heart to encourage and relate to other women. Over the past two years, she has felt led to begin sharing some of her own experiences as a woman and mom to help minister and to encourage others. Due to the Lord’s leading, Sarah recently started a series on dealing with crisis from a spiritual perspective, which is based on her own personal experience. The goal with this project is to help others find hope in hardship.
The last sixteen years have been an adventure! Eleven of those years have been spent living in Waco. Sarah and Mark moved away from Waco twice to live in Austin and Miami, and moved back both times for business opportunities. They are grateful to have laid down roots that have grown deep within the heartbeat of this city. They are thankful for their community, and dear friends who they have the opportunity to live life with…..and are beyond blessed to call Waco home.
