Welcome to Wonder & Wandering! I’m really glad you’re here.
My name is Sara, which means princess. It also means nomad, which is actually quite fitting for my life. This handsome fella pictured with me is my best friend, Noland, who I also happen to be married to. We recently moved to Salt Lake City, Utah to plant a church.
Since we decided to get married and start this crazy adventure together about three years ago, I’ve been learning a lot about what it means to be a wanderer … and about how wandering isn’t necessarily to stray, but to explore. There’s wonder in the wandering — always more than meets the eye, always something grander that God is doing behind the scenes, and always an invitation to experience more of the mystery, if we dare to trust Him.
I’m a wife, a church planter, a writer, a sister, daughter and friend — and truthfully, I don’t really feel cut out for what I’m doing most of the time.
So that’s what this place is for. Embracing and exploring the mysteries, question marks and “not enoughs” of life. Knowing that it’s the glory of kings to search out the hidden things. (Prov. 25:2) Finding the supernatural in the mundane. Doing everything with eyes full of wonder and feet willing to wander — not away from Him, but into the secret places we’d never reach without Him.
Glad you’re along for the ride. It wouldn’t be nearly as exhilarating without you!
