I met Sarah Thebarge in Houston at a gathering of speakers and artists focused on advocating for children in poverty. I was immediately struck, not only by how articulate she was but by the depth and breadth of her definition of human flourishing.

That depth and breadth runs through all her work and every conversation I’ve had with her, including this one. Check it out.

"They loved me back to life."

Sarah Thebarge knew what it was to feel alone. So when she met a Somali woman and her five daughters on a commuter train in Portland, OR she found an unexpected kindred sister. The story of their emerging friendship and Sarah's battle with breast cancer draws parallels between different circumstances with a common thread. In our interview with Sarah we hear how this everyday encounter changed everything about Sarah's story.

Now a physician's assistant in San Francisco, Sarah's story takes her through graduate school, across the country, and then across the world  to practice medicine in what was deemed "the unhappiest country in the world". The limitations practicing medicine in the developing world made Sarah more comfortable with the dying. Her own journey with breast cancer has helped her understand suffering.

From ordinary connections with our neighbors to how to impact a child's life in the developing world, we are inspired to look beyond our comfort and convenience to live the God-intended life. You will be changed by hearing Sarah's story and we are grateful to have her with the sisterhood. A beautiful conversation about what entering others' grief looks like and how it makes us truly alive.

Thebarge is a speaker and author who earned a master’s degree in medical science from Yale and was earning a master’s degree in journalism at Columbia University when she was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 27. After nearly dying, she sold everything she had and moved from New Haven, Connecticut, to Portland, Oregon, with just two suitcases of clothes and started over.

It was at that point that she encountered a Somali refugee family on the train in Portland. Thebarge developed a relationship with them, and over the next few months, while she taught the single Somali mom and her five daughters how to live in America, they taught her how to love and be loved again. The details of Thebarge and the Somali girls’ story of survival, recovery and redemption are recorded in her memoir The Invisible Girls (Jericho Books, 2013). All of the proceeds from the book are going into a college fund for the Somali girls.

Additionally, Thebarge’s blog was featured by MSNBC.com. Her writing has appeared in Everyday Health, Relevant Magazine, BurnsideWriters.com, Christianity Today, Sojo.net, Red Letter Christian and Huffington Post. Her writing for Christianity Today’s “This is Our City” project won first prize from the Evangelical Press Association in 2012.

As a speaker, Thebarge is a regular at retreats, churches, colleges and conferences. She was recently featured at Donald Miller’s Storyline Conference and named one of 40 Women Under 40 who are challenging taboos of the Christian faith by the "I Speak For Myself" initiative. Her book was chosen as the First Year Experience book for incoming freshman at Mississippi State University, where she delivered the convocation in August 2014.

She is a spokesperson for Vanity Fair Lingerie’s Women Who Do campaign, which features women who are making a positive difference in their communities. She is also a spokesperson for Compassion International. She currently lives in Southern California.
