I knew that my children would one day finish elementary school and move on to middle school. It makes logical sense. But I held out hope that somehow, some way, something magical would happen to prevent such an event from ever becoming reality. Two weeks ago, right on schedule, Annie, our oldest, started middle school.Read More
Timm left for Africa on Sunday morning, and like always, we are happy to support him, yet miss him very much. His dad is traveling alongside of him this time, making for a very memorable experience for them both. Timm's parents are in full-time ministry in Mexico City, and this is a very sweet opportunity for Timm and his dad to work together….Read More
First Day Of School (FDOS) is sort of like a holiday in the Sasser family. The anticipation, the excitement, the new backpacks and supplies...it may be second only to Christmas Morning in our home….Read More
This weekend, my husband and I are celebrating eighteen years of marriage. Knowing I was going to write this post, I have had a lot of time to think through the angle I want to take here. What do I say when reflecting on eighteen years?Read More
This past Sunday, Timm departed for Africa. He works for a missions organization called Empower One. He typically travels to South Sudan, but due to the violent civil war ensuing in that country, he instead is visiting Uganda where the refugee camps, full of the South Sudanese people who have had to flee their homes, are located.

I am fully supportive of his travel, and have been for the ten years he has been taking these trips.

It began when Annie was three and Jake was 18 months old. At first the week was full of playing in the hose and eating popsicles at Grammy and Pop Pop's house, but as our children have gotten older, it has evolved into something more.Read More
We celebrated our favorite father this past weekend! I had a very talented friend help me design and print this shirt. I love it so much, and Timm wore it all weekend, proudly displaying his children on his chest.
If you follow me on Instagram, you already know that Timm is an incredible dad….Read More

It was emotional, troubling, embarrassing, awkward, and honestly, at times, abusive.Read More
