Sarah English

Entrepreneur. Thinker. Activist. Catholic. 

 I met Sarah over a Kenyan necklace in the pew of an Assemblies of God church. I photographed her in the pews of a Catholic church as we talked journey and theology and I got to listen to how she got where she is today. She writes about this process of returning to Catholicism at stepsofstmarys.com

 Though I myself am not Catholic and never have been, I understand sometimes getting caught between old traditions and new revelations. Where do you find that balance? How do you know what your life is supposed to look like as an adult - not just as a product of how you've been raised? These are questions each of us must wrestle with. 

Some of us find ourselves in different places than what we have ever known.

Some of us find ourselves back at the beginning - embracing our roots. 

Sarah's story is one of returning to her roots.

I will come back to you, I swear I will;
And you will know me still.
I shall be only a little taller
Than when I went.
— Edna St. Vincent Millay
Everybody has to leave, everybody has to leave their home and come back so they can love it again for all new reasons.
— Donald Miller
No, life cannot be understood flat on a page. It has to be lived; a person has to get out of his head, has to fall in love, has to memorize poems, has to jump off bridges into rivers, has to stand in an empty desert and whisper sonnets under his breath... We get one story, you and I, and one story alone. God has established the elements, the setting and the climax and resolution. It would be a crime not to venture out, wouldn’t it?
— Donald Miller

Thank you, Sarah. 

For being who you are.
