Welcome to A Growing Home! I’m Sarah, I’m a mom of 5 young kids. We are multi-racial, Catholic, and we’ve made our home in the Silicon Valley. I’m all about being intentional in all aspects of our lives. From the big important things like thoughtfully raising our kids with a strong ethnic identity, to the smaller things, like trying to find the most eco-friendly, zero waste shampoo. I’m really excited you’re here to explore these things with me.

A Growing Home podcast is a breath of fresh air. Sarah offers a unique perspective on a variety of topics that are all so relatable. From easy family dinner ideas to being more eco-friendly, every episode has impacted the way I think and make decisions.
Thank you for bringing such thoughtful insight and diversity to the podcast world. I can’t wait for Season 2!!
Thoughtful and Inspiring
I admire Sarah’s intentionality and thoughtfulness in parenting and life as a whole. I especially appreciate her passion for uplifting diverse voices, especially in the literature world, and expect some challenging, fun and interesting topics ahead.
As a white mom raising Taiwanese biracial girls, Sarah’s multicultural background has been such a unique support in my own parenting in helping me to raise daughters with a strong sense of self and identity.
So exciting to have diverse voices!
Sarah brings such a unique voice and offers something much needed in the community - diverse perspectives! Representation in the Asian American space as well as Asian American Catholics is so hard to find!
In addition to having a unique viewpoint, her topics are so relatable, spanning from art as form of outlet for processing feelings to environmentalism to raising children.
