From knowing yourself to honoring your strengths, from recognizing your areas for growth to setting self-improvement intentions, this comprehensive leadership manifesto seamlessly weaves Sarah’s personal experience as a teacher, a mom, a wife, a principal, and an entrepreneur into wisdom and resources from educators in the field that’ll help us lead and grow. Thank you, Sarah, for sharing this vulnerably raw and refreshingly transparent look into your passionate run from fear-based hanging on to faith-based living strong.”

“Sarah reminds us that faith is not a passive descriptor, but a verb that allows for deeper relationships to form. Through her faith in the One who called her, Sarah has literally helped save my life, allowed me to understand my purpose, and begin to reacquire a faith that was left dormant for far too long. Lead with FAITH is not an answer to leadership; it is the answer. By acknowledging your place, your purpose, and your calling, you are able to stand beside others and lead them to where they need to be as well. Sarah, you have helped save destinies with this book. I am grateful for your willingness to respond to the still small voice that challenged you to write it. You, my friend, are an example to all.”
