2020 updates from author Sarah Arthur

Dear friends, fans, & fellow readers,





Math People tell me that 2020 is technically not a new decade, but to me the zero makes it feel like something. A chance to reflect, recalibrate, look back, forecast. So here goes.

First, I’m cancer-free. At least that’s what my oncologist says. Plus I’ve got a headful of ringlets and they’re AWESOME.









I still wrestle at times with extreme anxiety post-cancer, so

“If only life were more on the scale of Orlando Bloom taking down the giant Oliphaunt in The Return of the King rather than the usual, tedious mall-crawl with the Abercrombie crowd! We often wish the daily grind held a greater resemblance to all those fantasy worlds we’ve come to love, don’t we? In our more desperate moments, we’re tempted to walk smack into pillars at subway stations, just to see if we end up at Platform Nine and Three-Quarters. And which of us, at some point in our not-so-distant childhood (yes, let’s be honest!), hasn’t pushed aside the coats in a closet, hoping to find an entrance to another world?”
Sarah Arthur, Walking Through the Wardrobe: A Devotional Quest Into the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe

“And that’s what we’re truly longing for. On those weekends when we’re suddenly gripped with the urge to watch all three extended editions of The Lord of the Rings, what we really want, deep down inside (besides therapy), is the assurance that there is a realm someplace where evil has been conquered once and for all.”
Sarah Arthur, Walking Through the Wardrobe: A Devotional Quest Into the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe

“The Lord is close to the brokenhearted; which means that if the rest of us want to get close to God, we seek them out-not because of what we could possible offer them, as if we're the spiritual first responders on the scene to save the day, but because we recognize how much they have to teach us about who God really is." -Quoted by Sarah Arthur, Author of The One Year Daily Grind.”
