Sarah Crisp bio picture

    My life is constantly changing.

    Went to school for music. Now, I'm also writing Bible studies.

    Was told I wouldn't have kids. Now I have a daughter.

    Never thought God would call me to work with the age of girl where I got so much wrong. Now I'm mentoring and leading groups of teens and young adults.

    Life is about change. Go where God leads, even if you've never been there before. What a ride it is!

    I'm crazy about Jesus and my family. My first passion is music, but I've always pretended to be a writer. I have books of practicing cursive when I was five. (I always knew God had a sense of humor.)

    If I couldn't have music or writing, I would be a chef, in a certified organic and gluten free restaurant.

    This is my life. Consistent? I think so.

A Mother’s Work

“Birthing is a mother’s work.” Something my midwife told me after I had been reading books for months on childbirth while my husband blissfully went to sleep. I complained to her that I seemed to be prepared on this childbirth thing, but my husband might not be as educated as I was.     So […]

sharon nelson - Congratulations! I am so happy for you and your little family.
Motherhood is truly a sacrifice but God is with us and He shows up for us as we take every new step. I know you will let Him guide you through this new phase of the journey home.

Eve - Congratulations Sarah and Bryan! You were brave and strong! I loved your post and the perspective you have on motherhood. I love being a mom, but it is a job, a thought process that never stops. Even though you had naysayers, and risks, you rocked this out! Welcome Georgia! -eve-

Cry of help

  “MOMMY!”   Jilted in mid sentence, very deep in an e-book, I ran to see what the matter was. “I’m coming!”   “What’s wrong sweetie?”   “I have to pee.”   Ok, I have to admit, the tone of her yell was more like, “I’m having a bad dream”, but nonetheless, I went running. […]

Feet of the faithful

I will try to type this out the best way I can. This is a hard post to write and probably one to read.   Right now as I write this over Thanksgiving, I am visiting my husband’s grandmother, our sweet Nene. Her health, all too familiar to me, mirrors exactly what my grandmother went […]

Eve - A beautiful way to notice others Sarah. Our family, friends, even acquaintances who serve, serve as Jesus did all have “beautiful” feet as the Bible says. I love you and love that you notice feet! -eve-

Ruth - I am praying for Nene as I write this note. I believe that the places where we have walked will leave a lasting imprint,either for peace or for turmoil. Maybe that is why the bible says,”beautiful are the feet whivh carry the gospel of peace”. It sounds like Nene was one of those.


This post comes a year after one of the craziest challenges I decided to take. And by crazy, I mean CRAZY in every sense of the word but with a large whiff of affection. A crazy challenge, taken by my hopeful self, ultimately met by a purposeful God. Prior to this point, the longest scripture […]

A peek into my small group

I read a great book called Mentor Like Jesus by Regi Campbell. Although his book is set up more to help men lead other men, I learned a great deal about mentoring and applied many of his concepts to my personal group leading young women.   Like any book or method, learn what you can and […]
