Welcome Friend, I’m Sarah Jean.

I'm a writer of words, a chaser of light and a reader of stories. I’m twenty something year old, work in progress living in the MidWest, passionate about encouraging women to keep moving forward, walking by faith. This is my story, my stumblings and His graces. On the blog you'll find bits of home, family and faith mixed with stories of marriage, relationships, encouragement, and insight from our journey #ottermeetsbear.

I’m married to my best friend who converted me into a Micheal Scott fan. I am a “British Bake Off” want-to-be, marathon runner, Kindergarten teacher and a proud dog mom.

Most days you’ll find me rereading Lord of the Rings (which probably makes me a nerd!) or a good memoir, walking our doggo Jedi, taking photos, writing, daydreaming about our future house or perusing the end aisles of Target (I’m a deal shopper).

I live with my heart on my sleeve and words on the tip of my tongue. I'm a truth seeker, a hopeful encourager, an adventurer, striving to walk the path God has for me so others might experience His love, His mercy and His Grace. I'm His workmanship striving to walk in His work.

I've always been a writer, since the time I could hold a pencil I've been journaling my adventures. Eventually my words made their way to this space in the Fall of 2015. Ark in the Desert was born out of a place of longing, a place of hope and trust in the promises that God has given us. 

I'm a girl from humble beginnings, bare feet, green fields and Pygmy Goats. I prefer pancakes over waffles, sunrises over sunsets, flats over heels and a fork with my mac and cheese. I'm especially fond of hiking, acoustic music, county fairs, antiques, letters and Jesus.
