Missionary Momma

Sarah is a wife, mom to 3 spunky kids, and a full time missionary serving overseas in Botswana Africa. Africa took over her heart 15 years ago and never let go. Her life as a missionary momma is full of adventure, the mundane, and more life lessons than she can count. She loves Jesus, coffee, baking sweet things, and coloring with her kids. Her motto is to “Choose Joy” and find His grace in each moment.

Bravery in Loss

**This was a post I had to write and come back to a few times as it deeply effected me.  Sharing this part of my heart with you. Bonolo passed just before Christmas. ** I was just finishing up my morning cup of coffee when I could hear my husband talking on his cell phone. […]

Just Start!

Well hello there!  Yes, it’s been a long time since you’ve heard from me.  December I literally took a break from everything.  I stopped all outside ministry and focused on just being present for my family.  I quieted my heart and reflected on the advent season and I rested.  I felt like my heart needed […]

Merry Christmas from Botswana

Warm Christmas Greetings from Botswana! We don’t often get a good family picture, but while on a camping trip with some friends we had the chance to stop and get one. Isaac was feeling like such a big boy standing like this on our friends truck. It’s been well over 100 degrees the past few […]

Vulnerability in the form of a bathing suit

For as long as I can remember, I have hated bathing suits.  I’ve never had a “bathing suit body”.  I’ve never worn (nor do I desire to) a bikini.  I was the girl who cringed every time I found out that we were going to a water park for class trips. I would try on […]


I could feel it settling over me like a heavy blanket. I was grumpy and snappy at my kids and husband. I sent a quick text to my friend, “I feel grumpy today.” and yet I didn’t quite know why. I went about my morning setting up a baby shower for a friend of mine. […]

Where’s my part today?

So as I type, I am hearing the scrape, scrape, scrape of four men scraping down the insides of our swimming pool. We’re lucky to rent a house that has a nice sized swimming pool. We were unlucky enough to rent a house that had a swimming pool that had some issues with a new […]

Red Cups of Happiness…..well maybe not this year!

Those that know me really well know that I love coffee. Growing up I remember waking up to the smell of Folgers, a smell that always signified that my mom was up and moving around. I remember one time my moms coffee pot broke and thankfully Grandma Wurl came to the rescue with another coffee […]

“Uh Dear, there’s a scorpion in the boys room!”

I live in Africa where there are some of the worst snakes in the world.  There are also numerous bugs, spiders, and scorpions that are dangerous.  Some of those bugs even will “spit” acid at their offenders.  I mean, I suppose if you’re going to have a defense system….spitting acid is a pretty good “super […]

Missing Me Some Fall…….

** I wrote this post on fall two years ago while living in the Philippines.  Fall has always been the hardest time for me living overseas so I thought it would only be appropriate to share this part of my life.  It all still rings true! So if you know me well at all, you […]

Bravery in Missionary Kids!

So this is a post from my MissionaryMommy blog, but it’s one of my most favorites!  My kids teach me every day what it means to be brave and this is one of my favorite stories.  Piper in particular is always willing to try new things and this is just one of her many adventures […]
