Sarah is a wife and mama whose passion is to encourage women in their journeys with the Lord through her writing, speaking, and teaching the Word. Sarah danced professionally for over fifteen years as a ballerina for Ballet Austin and Mejia Ballet International (formally known as Ballet Arlington.) Her dancing inspired her to begin a blog of devotionals for ballet dancers, which over time has evolved into a ministry of encouragement to women of all ages and seasons. Sarah’s first book, Dreaming with God – A Bold Call to Step Out and Follow God’s Lead releases in February of 2018 with Baker Books. Sarah lives in Dallas, TX with her husband and high school sweetheart, Brian, and their three sons, Camp, Cooper, and Colt.
A little more about this space….
This little corner of the web started out as a place to write devotionals for dancers. I wrote to encourage ballerinas who face the same struggles I faced as a young aspiring dancer.
Then it started expanding as I grew into different roles…wife and mom. And so we cover lots of topics here, everything from all things ballet to all things motherhood and womanhood. But mostly, my heart is to encourage women in their journey with Jesus. This is a quiet little corner of the web to find a little nourishment for your soul, to spur you on in your journey, and to send you out refreshed, encouraged, and inspired.
My prayer for you is that something you read here might lead you to know, either for the first time, or in a deeper way, the God that created you, dreamed you up, designed you, and made YOU for a purpose more amazing than you could possibly imagine. My hope is that you would discover how He really feels about you. There is so much love from Him gazing your way, and I hope this is a place where you begin to feel His love. Writing is my way of capturing more of God. If I don’t write, it’s really hard for me to see what He is doing and how He is working. I write for Him in hopes that maybe you will be encouraged in your own journey. So grab a cozy seat, your favorite thing to drink, (in my case that would have to be a cup of coffee with pumpkin spice creamer…yum!) take a deep breath…and let your soul be nurtured for a while as you sink your heart into God’s Word and God’s truth. All I hope is that your heart might be pointed into the direction of His beautiful grace. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being here.

When I’m not writing or encouraging gals, I’m hanging with my favorite people.
