about dr. sarah

 I’m Sarah, most affectionately known as Dr. Sarah Mac! …
and I am just bold enough to actually believe that everything that God placed in me will come to pass. 

At 18, I made a promise to myself not to get in God’s way but to reach for every dream that He placed in my spirit. Since then, I have been on a journey to live life with no regrets. To aspire to be extraordinary. To be a misfit. To love hard and to live free. To enjoy every single blessing that God has for me while also embracing every struggle as a necessary step that places me closer to what He has for me.

MY MISSION IS

To Be Authentically Me! To create a life’s work that reflects my faith, my heart, and my passion. Specifically, to create faith-based programming that empowers enterprise and entrepreneurship promotes health and wellness and unifies diverse groups.

To Empower Change Agents! To fuel the God-give passion and purpose for young professionals and parents who are designed to  make an incredible impact on ourselves, families, communities, nation, and world.

BUT I WASN'T ALWAYS 'DR. SARAH MAC'

Before Dr. Sarah Mac, there was always Sarah. A gentle girl who strived to compete with herself only, who loved to comfort and connect with others, and who always looked for and tried to understand God’s role in her life. 

Through two life shifting moments, I began to strongly understand a glimpse of my purpose. At 11, I experienced a confusing and traumatic experience of abuse from a distant family member. At that point, suicidal thoughts led to an attempt to take my own life. After receiving comfort from my mother, I began to reflect on “why?” did this happen. I remember God’s whisper that if the enemy attempted to eliminate a young child, just how strong that child will become as an adult. This is where my understanding of just how meaningful my survival meant. I began to connect with the pain of others in attempts to make sure that other young girls and boys my age would “make” it despite painful and confusing experiences. I became gentle and understanding and easy to talk to. I was empowered to encourage others because I declared that the enemy could not have my life nor any of my friends’.

After practicing and learning faith and encouraging my friend-family, I noticed that I was doing  well and getting ready to go to college! During the excitement of my high school senior and college freshman year, I worked hard, I loved hard, I encouraged, and I challenged myself; I also conceived a child!!!!!!!!! What!!!?! I couldn’t fathom why me…the careful one, would get caught up!!! Again, I began to reflect “why Lord?” And at 18-and-pregnant, I declared that God blessed me with an opportunity and challenge… An opportunity to obtain every dream that I ever had and a challenge to overcome the seeds of doubt and shame that were planted by having a child so young and outside of marriage. This declaration thrust me to cling to my belief that my child and my life were to bring God glory. It pushed me to never accept anything less than what God declared for my life. I wrote a list of things that I desired, which included starting a mentorship program, becoming a doctor, becoming an AKA (lol skee wee my sorors!), and being the best mommy I could ever be.


Writing this snippet, really only scratches the surface to how good God has been in my life! From an abused young child to an excited happy well-balanced high school senior….From a scared, 18-and-pregnant young woman to a loving mommy, Soror, creative entrepreneur, psychologist…Over and over God was with me through each valley and mountaintop…showing me the fruits of faithfulness and a dependence on God through it all. 

So basically, Sarah is a  humble kid who thought she could make a difference and through God’s grace, guidance and gifts experienced the best of what the world had to offer her! Dr. Sarah Mac is the avenue in which I can foster and promote childhood dreams through the Change Agent Mentorship Program and PowerUP Public Speaking; as well as promote God-sized purpose in parents, budding young adults seeking entreprenuership, and communities through the Kingdom Business Consultation and PowerUP Public Speaking and Community Collaboration Platforms.

Here's Some of My Story

DrMac_Rainbows-01.png

Mom

I HAVE MANY TITLES, BUT MY FAVORITE IS

Have you ever heard that your children are your best teachers? Well, I’ve been learning for a long time lol! In fact, my whole adult life has been a learning process of how to be a woman and a mom!

 

My Mikah is the sweetest gift that I could have ever received. I learned to humble myself to care for another human and help her to develop into whom God created her to be. Although she was a genie pig for all types of college projects and research in grad school (sorry Mikah), I think she turned out pretty good LOLOL. One thing that single motherhood taught me is that I am not perfect, and I embraced just that to create a life that works for us. Embracing the imperfections allows me to fully enjoy and laugh at my mistakes and build a stronger relationship through openness and love.

 

But the best lesson that I received was the ability to practice the love that God showed me to my daughter, while still attempting to provide firm discipline. It was a challenge, especially during the preteen years. I noticed that my attitude needed adjusting and that I would implement love and firm expectation versus criticism. I found my way and I know that this helps me have patience and understanding when helping others find their own beautifully imperfect journey through life.
