Whether touring the country performing shows at pop venues or leading worship in her local church, Sara's desire as an artist is to ignite a flame in people's hearts for something greater than themselves.
"For this new record [Make A Fire], it's been an amazing journey of seeing many different avenues in my life merging, integrating and fusing together into this beautiful, vibrant tapestry," explains Sara. "When I wrote these songs the themes that kept rising up through the lyrics were pictures of flames burning bright, beauty through the ashes, and sort of this call to illuminate whatever space you're in, in whatever season you're in. Art reflects life and I kept feeling the idea burning in my heart, that what we once thought might be broken down or dirty is actually kindling in the hands of God that can ignite an incredible flame... There is power in story and telling our stories in an authentic way. I hope this record inspires others to be bold, be brave, and to make a fire!"
Make A Fire was recorded in Franklin, TN with grammy-nominated producer and singer/songwriter David Leonard (All Sons & Daughters) and his incredible team at The Creak Studio (Integrity Music).
