Talking With Sara

Hi Sara!

How did you end up in DC?

It was definitely one of those things I heard clearly from the Lord. It literally was a door that opened and the Lord was like “You can walk through it if you want to, or not.” And the timing was perfect with my past job that ended in November. Chris a few months back had also opened the door for me, in a sense, and wanted to include me in this. I was like why not? So I just came up here blindly and it was the best decision I ever made.

Did you have any apprehensions before coming up here?

Honestly no. I was in Atlanta for two years after I moved back from college and I knew I wasn’t supposed to be in Atlanta but I didn’t know where I was supposed to be. And so when this opportunity came it just felt right. So I was more excited and eager than anything else.

What is your favorite part about DC?

I love the lifestyle DC has and the challenges it has brought. It’s a place where you can really learn and grow and figure things out for yourself. You’re also surrounded by monuments and you get to walk to the grocery store. It’s just stunning for one, but also the community that’s come with being here is probably the best.

What has God grown in you since you’ve been here?

Oh way too much. I’m just trying to keep up with it all. He’s revealing a lot of who I am naturally instead of who I thought I was or who I thought I should be. Just learning who Sara is has probably been the most beautiful, interesting, and challenging thing. But it has been an incredible process to grow and learn who I am in the Lord and not try to fight it. And to lean into it. And to learn what I believe full on instead of what I grew up maybe being taught or told. The Lord’s definitely doing a big work in me and I’m very thankful for it.

What do you want people to know about Jesus?

That you are a hundred percent loved where you are at in the current state of your life, and where you were at, and where you’re going to be. And that you can’t comprehend the love and care and value that you do have. That you do have a father that will chase after you. Oh my gosh, just got real heavy and deep. That you do belong and are accepted. That there is always hope. And you always have a home in him.

What’s your catchphrase?

I got a lot. “Well done” (British accent.) “Well there’s that.” I also have my own theme song to life. I don’t really know when I’m doing it. But then Megan always points it out.

Thanks Sara, for being you.
