By Sarah Benson / August 1, 2019 /

For most of my life, I’ve thought I was… not smart. Stupid according to my inner critic. ⁣ ⁣ Then 3 years ago God asked me for one step of obedience. To open my home for a women’s bible study. ⁣ ⁣ I told him I wasn’t qualified and that I didn’t have anyone to…

A little less than 48 hours ago, Georgia tripped during our piggy back ride race. I heard the sound loud enough that I turned to face her before she stood up and said “I can’t feel my arm!” That began one of the toughest 24 hours of my motherhood career. Her pain was horrible and…

The idea of a calling

By Sarah Benson / March 30, 2017 /

This idea of a calling is a big one. I have this notion that a calling on my life will only be a big one. That if God really has a calling for me its only a ‘real calling’ if its huge. It must be right? If God has come a callin’ its because he…
