Meet Sarah

Hi! Welcome to my table, to my writing home. I’m Sarah Fusté, a woman who desires to live whole-heartedly, and to fill up the next half of my life well.

Sarah Fusté & family

I like to notice the Extraordinary in the ordinary. I believe that life is infused with Love, and when I write about it, I begin to see it: the God-presence around us, in our lives, in the daily duties, in the outdoors, in my children.

I love food, I love fresh air, I love running, I love my hubby. I am a 7 on the Enneagram, or the Enthusiast, which means I will use the term “I love” much more than most. As such, I tend to lean towards gluttony, which you wouldn’t notice by my appearance, but you couldn’t avoid once you saw me:

  • cart home oodles of books from the library (more than I could ever read in three weeks), or
  • stuff way more activity into one week than any reasonable person could manage (resulting in five baskets of clean laundry piled two-high at the foot of my bed), or
  • start homeschool with my girl for two weeks with gusto and then let it languish for the next four before scraping myself off the floor and remembering that I can just take a tiny bite, instead of shoving five hundred Montessori mom blogs down my gullet and ending up in a glazed-eye heap of overindulgence…you get the picture.

A few details: I’m a Canadian and Finnish citizen (the latter thanks to my mama). I speak French in the home to my kids. I’m very much settled into the summer of my life—my mid-thirties. I have a daughter, 4, and a son, 1. I’m a Seventh-day Adventist Christian, and yes, a life-long vegetarian. I live in Southwest Michigan, near sandy white beaches and happy orchards of cherries and peaches. Summer here is pretty gorgeous.

I stay at home with my kids, cook a lot, write a bit, run with some great girls, and enjoy wild romance with my Romeo-hubby. Okay, so the romance is not very wild at this stage in our lives, but we do enjoy a date night when we aren’t falling asleep over our milkshakes. And we’re best friends, which makes living together a bit more fun.

Anyhow, enough for now. I have a 4-year-old sitting on my lap asking if she can watch Mister Roger’s Neighborhood instead of Mr. Dress-up, and a 1-year-old calling “Mama, Mama!” from his crib.

I hope you’ll stay a while here at my table and share a cup of good life…

    Here I am checking my e-mail on my lunch…and you have me in tears! Your word pictures have a way of making me think that I’m right there with you. What an excellent idea for you to blog, Sarah! You are so well honed at it already. The stories you’ve written from the time you learned your alphabet have served you well. Keep it up…I felt that I had a little visit with you and your family. XOXOX

    Saw you on Spectrum and decided to stop by. I am also a seven on the Enneagram and also a Seventh-day Adventist who once lived in Berrien Springs for three years while my hubby was in PT school. And although I have forgotten my French from college–I have enjoyed traveling across Canada. I look forward to reading your blogs, Sarah. God bless!

      Thank you, Cherilyn! It is good to have a fellow 7, a fellow Adventist, and a fellow blogger join me. I look forward to hearing your comments.

    Sarah-I just found this by accident. How fun. I didn’t know you had a blog. Didn’t know you write for Spectrum. I’m so excited. I’ve never heard of Enneagram. I have some investigating to do. Can soooo relate to getting the big stacks of library books with no possible way to read them all.
