She holds a bachelor’s degree in mathematics and English from East Texas State University (now Texas A&M, Commerce), a master’s degree in mathematics and education from Texas Woman’s University, and has done graduate work in Bible and counseling at Abilene Christian University.

Her work has included workshops and lectureships such as World Vision for Christ in San Antonio, Texas, Oklahoma Christian University Lectureship, Ft. Worth Lectures, North Texas Bible Teachers’ Workshop in Dallas, Texas and numerous ladies’ days and retreats, including The Mid-Atlantic Retreat and Cold Harbor Road Lectures in Virginia, the Connecticut Ladies’ Retreat, the European Christian Women’s Retreat in Spyer, Germany in 2007, and most recently at Polishing the Pulpit in Tennessee. Sarah travels with Gary each summer to Tanzania, East Africa and other mission areas, teaching and maturing the women. Gary and Sarah have two children—a daughter, Tonya, and a son, Paden.
