Sarah. (A Woman Worth Knowing)

It has been quite some time since I blogged. But there's always a good reason to start again!

I have this really great friend. When I say really great, I mean like, REALLY great. She kind of does awesome things for the Name of the LORD in this world. She loves and honors her husband more than any wife I know. She is about to be the mother of a beautiful, long-awaited child. She builds up youth to also serve in this world. She is one of my best friends, and she has impacted my life more than words can describe.

Her name is Sarah Beard, and (if you don't already), I would like for you to take a moment to get to know her.

Sarah is a frequent blogger. You don't have to read all of these, but they're all pretty great...so if you have time, you should.

These posts will give you a sense of Sarah's rich love of the Lord:

These posts relate to Sarah's marriage to Andrew - posts that have inspired me and I hope will inspire you about what you desire in marriage as well:
  • Intention - READ THIS. You will seriously want this kind of relationship. 
  • Marriage Purity - Self explanatory, a message about purity even within marriage.

And these, well, these are shorter snapshots of Andrew & Sarah and how seriously HILARIOUS they are. If you don't already, you'll understand why I love them so much after reading these:

Basically, Sarah is one of the greatest people I know. Here's where you come in. Sarah works for this awesome organization, His Voice Global. Check it out more here. HVG is in the midst of some awesome Kingdom projects. These include building orphanages in Sudan (& partnering with people there to sustain them), partnering with a boys home in India, and feeding thousands of orphans in North Korea (a RARE and amazing opportunity). Sarah is the Director of Partnerships for HVG, which means she is constantly finding new people/churches/organizations to partner with HVG in various ways. She also plans missions conferences and loads of other things. 

As another part of her job, Sarah has to raise her own salary. This year, with Baby Beard due in June, Sarah is hoping to raise $30,000. This little nugget growing inside of her has been an answer to years of prayer, and I want to do everything I can to make sure he/she is well taken care of! :)

Sarah is also one of the most humble people I know. You can believe that no matter how big or little your donation, she will be humbled, maybe even to tears -- or maybe it's just the pregnancy hormones. :) She is a gracious woman who is deserving of any dollar you could give her way.

If you would like to give a one-time or monthly donation to Sarah (AND YOU SHOULD!), please follow her directions in this post:
The Ask.

If you really still feel like you don't know Sarah enough, here is a video testimony she also used to announce to the youth group that her and Andrew were expecting a child. Enjoy! And PLEASE, be a part of Christ's hands & feet in the world and help her reach her goal! ANYTHING HELPS!
