.Sarah's Christmas Project.

SO, this year my family has decided to not buy into the mass commercialism of Christmas and the 470 billion projected dollars people will spend trying to proove to their family and friends just how much they love them through gifts. Instead we have decided to donate money to good charities such as; Living Water International and Samaritan's Purse .

Not to say that gifts aren't nice as well, but we should try to reach out to people who truly need the help and money this Christmas instead of being so selfish and always wanting more, more, more.

There are so many Countries in the world who currently live in third world settings, without the basics of food and water. Malnutrition runs rampant as well as disease and infections. We should all try to reach out to others more and truly share the love of Christ with them and through our resources, because we can make quite a difference IF and WHEN we simply try.

.Zion Snowboards.

I just ordered my new Zion Snowboard. : ) I'm getting a 158 Z1 (it's the coral/black and white one on the left) for my Japan trip. I'm so excited!!!!!! And due to Zion being so popular they sold out of my size of this year's board, so, Walter is hooking me up with next year's board. YAY!!!! The Z1 is SO SICK, check out the sweetness:


Features;
. Directional Twin Design
. The Z1 is built from the best possible materials
. 45 Degree triax fibre glass provides excellent edge hold
. Full length Poplar wood core that is light weight and strong
. RDS (Rubber Dampening System)
. Carbon Sectors are placed underneath the core to give added pop and stability at high speed
. Sintered 7000 Base Material with Die Cut Graphics
. ABS Sidewalls that are designed for the ultimate ride in any conditions
. 3 Year Warranty against manufacturers defects
. The Z1 Series is part of the ZION POP Program

What did you learn from all of that mumbo jumbo???? That the Z1 is a very impressive all mountain freestyle board, that is just as impressive in the park as it is in the pow pow. HECK YES!!!!!!

Zion manufactures their AMAZING small production boards in Sweden at Stuntwood and are based out of Vancouver B.C. You can check out more products/boards etc at

.Good works in Faithful Hearts.

I am constantly amazed by the Grace of God. By how He draws us to Himself, and how much he longs for our heart to simply choose Him, and trust Him and grow in Him. Allowing Our heart to be used by His own. It's amazing. When I let go, and place my heart and my passions and talents at His feet, what He chooses to do with them. It's always so much more than I had expected. It's always for growth and good and blessing. It's wonderful to have a maker who loves me so much, and a Father who adores His faithful children more than anything else in the Universe. I am so blessed.

The Following are verses that have been incredibly influential in my life recently:

Psalm 22:14
"I am poured out like water,
and all my bones are out of joint.
My heart has turned to wax;
it has melted away within me."

Psalm 139 (The Message)
1-6 God, investigate my life; get all the facts firsthand.
I'm an open book to you;
even from a distance, you know what I'm thinking.
You know when I leave and when I get back;
I'm never out of your sight.
You know everything I'm going to say
before I start the first sentence.
I look behind me and you're there,
then up ahead and you're there, too—
your reassuring presence, coming and going.
This is too much, too wonderful—
I can't take it all in!

7-12 Is there anyplace I can go to avoid your Spirit?
to be out of your sight?
If I climb to the sky, you're there!
If I go underground, you're there!
If I flew on morning's wings
to the far western horizon,
You'd find me in a minute—
you're already there waiting!
Then I said to myself, "Oh, he even sees me in the dark!
At night I'm immersed in the light!"
It's a fact: darkness isn't dark to you;
night and day, darkness and light, they're all the same to you.

13-16 Oh yes, you shaped me first inside, then out;
you formed me in my mother's womb.
I thank you, High God—you're breathtaking!
Body and soul, I am marvelously made!
I worship in adoration—what a creation!
You know me inside and out,
you know every bone in my body;
You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit,
how I was sculpted from nothing into something.
Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth;
all the stages of my life were spread out before you,
The days of my life all prepared
before I'd even lived one day.

17-22 Your thoughts—how rare, how beautiful!
God, I'll never comprehend them!
I couldn't even begin to count them—
any more than I could count the sand of the sea.
Oh, let me rise in the morning and live always with you!
And please, God, do away with wickedness for good!
And you murderers—out of here!—
all the men and women who belittle you, God,
infatuated with cheap god-imitations.
See how I hate those who hate you, God,
see how I loathe all this godless arrogance;
I hate it with pure, unadulterated hatred.
Your enemies are my enemies!

23-24 Investigate my life, O God,
find out everything about me;
Cross-examine and test me,
get a clear picture of what I'm about;
See for yourself whether I've done anything wrong—
then guide me on the road to eternal life.

Psalm 62
My soul finds rest in God alone;
my salvation comes from him.
He alone is my rock and my salvation;
he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.

.My latest Tattoos.




So, I've been wanting more tattoos since the day I got my first one. Hahahahaha. Sorry mom and dad, but I really love them, and I believe they are statements and each one a totally unique work of art. Something that is a very visually liberating process, and exclamation to the world through each piece of work. Anyways, all that to say, I got my second (as a set) of tattoos today and I LOVE THEM. I designed a set of angel wings for the back of my ankles that represents hope and protection in and over my life. I am counting down the days 'til I can go get another one. : ) LOVE TATTOOS!!!!! Jon at Out of Step Tattoo in White Salmon, WA took my designs/sketches and made them into an original tattoo piece(s) for me .

.I hate cold feet.



Random blog post, but the thing is, I hate being cold *I am cold blooded, I swear* so I am cold most of the time. I'm the girl who still has a sweatshirt on when it's 70* out...... and the worst is when my hands or feet are cold. I hate cold feet more than anything.... okay, maybe not as much as spiders, but still, a whole heck of a lot. So, to try to cure my cold Winter feet, I try to wear socks 24/7 as well as adorable slippers..... check out the last pair I bought at EXIT .

.Portland Fashion Week.




My good friend Becky Moore and I attended the Friday Night Fashion Show for Portland's Fall Fashion Week 2008. It was such a blast. I loved the designers who worked their lines in the walk offs all night long. A few favorites of the night were: Sameunderneath , Alula , and alltime Portland based favorite Nike Considered. This event was so much fun!!!! (Please Excuse my crappy photos, I didn't have a press pass to get my big camera through the door). I had to use my faithful and tiny Canon pocket digi. : ) All in all, a wonderful night.

.Japan or Bust.



So, it's been a LONG time since I've blogged.....so sorry to my faithful readers (I know there are a few of you out there, maybe up in the Northern parts... *MEGS*), but this will be my update on what's happening now. And what's (hopefully) happening in my near future.

My brother Seth , and his wife Hannah live in Japan and work at NORTHSTAR outdoor adventures which is an outdoor camp in Norikura, Japan.
They do a bunch of different outdoor camps in the spring/summer months, hiking, mt. biking, rock climbing etc, and in the winter months Northstar is a snowboard camp.


My application is still "being processed" at this point in the game so it's not a 100% for sure done deal, but hopefully I'll be heading over to Japan around the first of Jan. and into Mid-end of March 2009. I'll be working as a snowboard instructor and helping out at the camp in any other area I can... (photography, worship, dance parties etc....) LOL!!!!! Heck Yes!!!!

I really feel like this is the next step for me and something that I know God has been laying on my heart for a while. It's the best feeling to truly be used by God. To step out of your comfort zone and to give it all to Him and work in ministry and to work for the Lord. I love waking up each day and knowing that what I am doing is making a difference. Choosing to lead by example, and hang out with new friends, simply sharing Christ's love with them. It is the best feeling in the whole world. Knowing that you are making a difference, and that God is working in a through you. Changing you and growing you in the process as well. It's so cool.

I am getting so excited!!!!!! The countdown is already starting...... and I am also going to buy a new ZION snowboard for this season!!!! They are awesome boards, go check 'em out!!!!
ZION LOST 157 baby!!!!!
