If you're visiting from MOPS I want to say welcome!

I'm a mom just like you are - trying to wage war on the laundry, dishes, and seemingly endless piles of toys (that I swear reproduce like rabbits while I'm sleeping).

My three-year-old and two-year-old call me "Mom," but my name is Sarah. I'm a third-generation pastor's wife, stay-at-home mom, and writer who currently lives in New Mexico with my handsome and hardworking husband.

Lest you think I'm the model of motherhood, at this very moment, my sink is overflowing with dirty dishes and there is a pile of goldfish scattered all over the carpet.

I love being a mom, but I can honestly say it is the most challenging and discouraging adventure I've been on. I feel like my mission is to encourage and equip moms to be the best that they can be. I want them to know that moms are valuable and that the work they do is priceless. We're not perfect, but neither are our children. God has given us everything we need to be the best mom WE can be. I'm learning that God has placed us where we are for a reason. By being faithful in the little things, He is able to take our little and turn it into much.  

Mom - you are loved. You are valuable. You are enough. Keep up the good work!!

I hope you'll come back again for a visit!

In case you need a giggle, here are a few posts I wrote about being the mother of a preschooler:

  1. Hello Sarah! Your post over at MOPS made my smile! True words - keep sharing them with other moms! Every MOMent spent being an intentional, relational, selfless mom will help your children become image bearers and in the process mold you into who God wants you to be! With God's help we are able! Be blessed, be encouraged by the "older mom" and keep sharing!

    1. Thanks so much, Tracey! I have definitely learned that motherhood and marriage has done more to shape (and refine) my character than anything else ever has. Nothing like a little sleep deprivation to reveal your "true" self. I'm thankful for the opportunities God provides to continue to shape us and mold us into HIS image so that we can model it for the little ones he's placed in our lives.

  2. Hi Sarah,
    I absolutely LOVED your "not just a stay-at-home-mom" article on the MOPS blog. Well said!
    Looking forward to reading more here.



Thanks for visiting! I love hearing from you!
