About

Hi, friend.

I’m super glad to meet you. I’m Sarah Flannery, and this is a place where I hope to share thoughts with you about church, family, relationships, and living out calling in normal and messy life.

I grew up in a tight-knit family, spent my childhood years both in fundamentalist environments and Methodist churches, and grew into my personality while attending an evangelical Christian liberal arts college. After that, I married John, got a master’s in family studies, and started working in the church. Had two kids, wrote two books on family ministry, then started a Ph.D. in marriage and family therapy–and that’s where I am today!

I love talking with my best friends, eating take-out, and watching good TV with my family. I wish I played more board games or enjoyed cooking. I’m learning to recognize my whiteness and privilege, to understand the subconscious, and to truly listen to those with whom I disagree. A good day for me is one in which I feel productive for myself and helpful to others.

Your turn!
