I’m Sarah (with an “h”, yes). I’m a writer, graduate student in bioethics, a wife and mother. My writing has been published by The FederalistThe Denver Post, and the Catholic Stand. I’m also a member of Women Speak for Themselves. I enjoy exploring and writing on issues in politics, bioethics, culture, and religion–but, hey, that’s just me.

I write because I don’t know what I think until I read what I say. — Flannery O’Connor

My motto is “strong faith, strong coffee.” I love family life, tradition and organic (home-grown) food. My husband is an IT maverick by day and a flannel-loving woodsman and beekeeper on weekends. We have three teen-aged children and a 90-lbs. English Labrador Retriever who eats everything except blackberries and loves the smell of coffee, as much as I do.

On being Catholic…I am a revert to the Church. Late one night, I discovered a small book on Catholic prayer, in a box that had never been unpacked during our move to a new house. (Thanks, Saint John Paul II.) Why I was searching through that box, I don’t remember–but I found a treasure. The pages of the book were “light silent sound” (1 Kings 19:12) that called me home to the Church.

 but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts. Always be ready to give an explanation to anyone who asks you for a reason for your hope, (1 Peter 3:15)

This blog is dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Theotokos, God bearer, who in her divine maternity reveals the beauty and fullness of motherhood, womanhood and friendship with God. I imagine that Mary approves of “brave girl” boots.
