I’m Sarah Scott Pape. I live in Austin,TX with my husband where I teach English Literature to High School kids and take pictures of people. Being a teacher reminds me on a regular-to-frequent basis that I still have a lot to learn. I’m unapologetically under-construction. My love language is dry humor and I’m non-discriminatory when it comes to sweets.

I like to write. Virginia Woolf says she doesn’t know what she thinks until she’s read what she’s written, and I couldn’t have said it better myself. This space is a collection of developing thoughts, captured moments, and external processing as I continue to learn and look both to and for God in the process.

Sound like we’d be friends? Let’s.
