Her latest batch of songs from "The Trying Mark" are (in classic Sarah style) poetic and layered. We were also delighted that she could be a part of Escape To The Lake 2014.

Being teachable is a virtue. A disciple is someone who is willing to be taught, someone willing to be disciplined into a discipline. But that's hard. Proverbs 4:5 tells us,"Get wisdom, get understanding; do not forget my words or turn away from them."
