Hi, I'm sara! 

Dear future little one, In today’s crazy environment, everyone wants you to have a well thought out opinion about every subject within a minute of first hearing about it. I can’t do that. Only through repeated, prayerful reflection can I hear what the Lord is trying to teach me. Of course, writing out my conclusions […]

Dear future little one, I write all of these letters and store them on this blog for two reasons: 1. You never know what life will bring. When Kyle’s mom passed away last year, the little notes she’d write us, her online journal entries, and the sweet texts she’d send became some of our most […]

Dear future little one, I recently got my wedding ring (or engagement ring, whatever you wanna call it) back from the cleaners. I take it in every year like I’m supposed to (gotta keep it up for that warranty) and I’m always AMAZED at how pretty and sparkly it looks. Don’t get me wrong, I […]

Dear Future Little One, When I first got to college, I was absolutely TERRIFIED of doing something wrong. Everyone around me was beautiful, brilliantly intelligent, and so much more outgoing than me. Don’t get me wrong, I was having fun and meeting great people, but I was so scared of doing something wrong and looking […]

Dear future little one, Almost two years ago I was faced with making one of the biggest decisions of my life: to marry Kyle or not. About a year before this I had a horrific experience of being physically hurt on a date by my date. I was trapped in a car, physically injured, and […]

Dear future little one, The world has a way of pulling you a thousand different directions and then guilt tripping you when you don’t follow through on every single one of them. I grew up in a family of ten kids. Two are chronically ill, four were adopted through foster care with special needs, and […]

Dear future little one, My mom always told me “when life gets hard you can either laugh or you can cry, and I’d much rather laugh”. I think she got that from Marjorie Hinckley when she said “The only way to get through life is to laugh your way through it. You either have to laugh or cry. … Crying gives me […]

Dear future little one, My social media is full of pictures of my friends traveling all over the world, meeting celebrities, crossing items off their bucket lists, going on picture-perfect vacations, and a whole bunch of fun things I’m NOT doing. When I go to church, I see all of these beautifully put-together families with […]

So whenever I’m having a rough day, I make a point to walk past a flower or notice an especially gorgeous sunset. It’s like God is reaching out to me and saying “Hey, I love you. And here’s beauty for beauty’s sake to prove it.”
