Sara DuVall is a proud housewife, homemaker, and homeschool mom, serving as a daughter of the King during her earthly sojourning.
“There are those who seek knowledge for the sake of knowledge; that is Curiosity. There are those who seek knowledge to be known by others; that is Vanity. There are those who seek knowledge in order to serve; that is Love.” –Bernard of Clairvaux
Sara has a MA in English literature and certificate in technical communication from the University of Alabama in Huntsville. She previously earned her BA in cultural anthropology and English writing in 2010 at the University of West Florida. Sara worked as the worship pastor assistant and admin at her church until she and her husband began their family in 2014. Since then, she is a mother of three and a committed homemaker and homeschool teacher.
Sara has been writing poetry since she was young, about 13-years-old. Inspired by a poem written by her great-grandmother, Sara has studied and enjoyed the art of poetry ever since. She is a published short story author in Northwest Florida State College’s Blackwater Review (2006 and 2007). She is also an award-winning short story author at the University of West Florida (2009).
The daughter of a choir director and college music teacher with an MA in voice, Sara was regularly exposed to music from an early age. Although she is a far cry from the vocal qualifications of her mother, and although she is not nearly as proficient a pianist as she should be from her tutelage, Sara has maintained her musical background by expressing herself through acoustic and classical guitar and the Native American style flute, composing many of her own songs.
Besides writing and music, one of Sara’s favorite work experiences was as assistant curator of the Heritage Museum of Northwest Florida where we got to accession people’s old stuff and guide tours about it. They just don’t make things like they used to.
