Welcome to Roses and Wrenches. We are glad you stopped by. My name is Sarah and my husband is Matthew; together we have two very handsome sons along with our beautiful foster kiddos. We were married roughly a year after we graduated High School and through God’s grace celebrated our seventeenth year anniversary December of 2015. I am a school teacher and Matthew is the campus pastor for The Church at Downtown. By most standards we are a typical working family. We’ve had our ups and downs, joys and sorrows, successes and failures, etc., but through it all we continue to work toward our dreams together (sometimes they change while in pursuit) and remember where every blessing comes from (God alone). A few desires began to build within us starting in 2009. The first of which was to work toward becoming debt free. Second, to open our home to children who needed one. And third, to have a small farm that our family and friends could enjoy together. This blog shows part of our journey in making this dream a reality. As I’m sure you’ll see through reading our blog, neither one of us is extremely smart nor overly talented in any one area. However, we’ve continued to believe, pray, dream, and work diligently at pursuing our goals regardless of what happens around us. Although its not been easy pursuing goals that sometime feel hopelessly far off, we love getting to go through it as a family, and hope each of you reading this gets to enjoy the same.
