My name is Sarah—a name that is annoyingly common, but also a name I’ve grown to love as I identify with it more and more. Sarah means “princess,” which is what I spent the majority of my life embodying to its fullest. It was all about me, what I wanted, when I wanted it, and how I wanted it—and I would not accept anything less. Although I still see my princess-like tendencies today, I am learning what it means to embody being a daughter of The King. That’s who I am. No matter where I am, where I’ve been, or where I’m going, my job remains the same: to love the Lord and love His people, and that’s what I intend to do.
I tend to be a perfectionist, but I’m learning that my writing and teaching is and always will be an imperfect pursuit, and that’s okay. Being bound by perfectionism is a significant part of my story, and yoga has been exceedingly helpful in my journey towards freedom. I began practicing yoga to enhance health, but yoga did so much more for me—it brought healing and hope. It turned down the volume of the voice in my head who demands me to be perfect. It is always teaching me to embrace where I am, allowing what I do today to be enough.
I view yoga as a tool to move deeper in seeking God and His truth by learning discipline in prayer, silence, meditation, and even play and creativity. It has helped me grow physically, emotionally, and spiritually, and my hope is to encourage others in their journeys of growth. I am a certified 225-hour yoga instructor through an incredible organization, Holy Yoga. (If you are looking into becoming a yoga instructor, I highly recommend them. You will be blessed beyond measure.)
All in all, what you find on this site serves as some simple reflections as I attempt to walk intimately with the Lord, seeking truth. I will stumble often, but I yearn to learn what it means to submit to Him daily. I yearn for my talk to line up with my walk, and I yearn for my walk to line up with His talk. One step at a time.
