Meet Sierra

Hi from northern California!

I live in a little blue house with my husband, our dog, and a few backyard goats. I’m passionate about helping women embrace life wherever they are as I encourage them to live freely and fully in God. I wrote a book, A Pygmy’s Life for Me,Β  which chronicles the childhood and adolescence of a “good” girl who finally discovers her freedom in God. A Pygmy’s Life for Me is full of humor and hope and is written for anyone feeling small, misunderstood, or isolated.

Right here down Cottonwood Lane, I keep track of life in all these middle places. I talk about pain, grief, unmet expectations, healing, hope, and my soul that’s learning to celebrate in God. I am continuously surprised by life and the joy that keeps interrupting all my hard things.


You can expect words and stories that you have felt, but been unable to say. You can expect encouragement to pursue God while living fully & freely within the story He has given you. You can expect this blog to be full of honesty & joy. And I’m going to tell you often that you are not stuck. You are seen by God! And you CAN live. And you CAN celebrate….even in (especially in!) your broken, lonely seasons.

I hope to meet you right here. I hope to sit with you wherever you happen to be. I hope this is a place that gets you excited for your heaven-home and helps you open your arms wide to embrace the life God has given you today. I’ve learned it can be ugly and beautiful all at the same time.
