Overview

As a young wife and mother of two small children, Sarah Noble underwent two back surgeries in five years, recovered from PPD, wrestled with insomnia, and recovered from concussions. She wrote, painted, planted and did whatever she could to seek God’s face and cultivate beauty in a season of suffering. The poems she wrote to express the cries of her heart are offered here in the hopes of providing language to others who suffer. Like the psalms of David, they honestly express feelings, questions, and desires to God.

Organized into four categories: Pain, Beauty, Christ, and Wonder; Sarah’s verses cover the spectrum of admiration, praise, confession, supplication, and lament. The text is interspersed with Sarah’s paintings and photos. The result is a collection that breathes worship. May it offer comfort to others who find themselves in a difficult place of waiting for answers, for relief, and for miracles.

Sarah Suzanne Noble—poet, photographer, and artist/designer—lives and creates in Chicago, Illinois. She graduated with her Masters in Architecture from Ball State University in 2008.
