Sarah Matheny

Sarah Matheny left her life as a family law attorney to raise a family nearly ten years ago, with every intention of returning to a corner office someday. When she became a stay-at-home mom, she started blogging to share the joys, successes and laughs that come from raising a family with a love of veggies and a love of God, and she never looked back. Even with a full plate, she feels the grumbly, gaping holes in her life that can only be filled and satisfied by a merciful and grace-giving Father. She's published a New York Times best-selling memoir cookbook, Peas and Thank You, and continues to feed her readers their daily recipe and/or glimpse into life with the Peas at peasandthankyou.com.
