“Who’s got two thumbs and just sent in her first book? #ThisGirl”

Yes, that dorky picture was a selfie, taken moments after I sent in the manuscript for Jesus Feminist to my editor.

D-O-N-E. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ll go into a mild coma for a while.

    Sarah – have you read Kent Annan’s two books about Haiti? – Following Jesus Through the Eye of the Needle and After Shock? I’m sure you’ll love them…. I’m lucky enough to know Kent a little and he is the real deal. Great guy, great writer, great thinker, very humble.
    Congrats on sending your book in. I’m looking forward to reading it.

  • Kelley Nikondeha

    I’m blushing over here… but smiling, too! Thanks for being such an advocate and encourager.

    Love, love, love that quote. It’s long been one of my favorites.

    Hey Sarah,
    Just catching up on my post holiday reading and wanted to drop you a late Merry Christmas comment! Your blog is my favorite reading find of 2012, so full of beauty and fire. Beyond excited to read your 2013 words and books. Randomly – I also love your Canadian-ness so much. Grew up on the boarder and married into a Canadian family, somehow your voice is just a bit not American, and it feels like home.

  • Jeannie Boudreau Richards

    Congratulations, Sarah! Can’t wait to read your book! I’m still hard at work on my final manuscript, but I just know that I’m going to be just as thrilled once I get my first novel actually published! JB Richards, Author

  • Heather Bowie

  • Adventures In Babywearing

    You are seriously so cute. I wish you were going to be my neighbor where I am moving! I can not wait to read your book.


  • James Prescott

    So excited about your book – honestly cannot wait to read it. Your writing is such an amazing blessing, thank you.

    I love that Victor Hugo quote – makes me feel better, I tend to worry that I’m not praying right.
