Brandon and Jerry interview Sara McDaniel from the blog SimplySara.com about simple living as bigger living, significance from service to others, getting out of our comfort zones, and lifting herself from the rut of divorce.

How are you currently living to get out of your comfort zone?

Jeff Goins’ Wrecked Vision Trip in Guatemala

Sara took a leap of faith out of her comfort zone by joining Jeff Goins and other strangers on his Wrecked mission trip to Guatemala where she served the needs of those who lived in the lowest level of poverty she had ever witnessed.

A Bigger Life by Serving Others

While she is someone who travels throughout the United States of America for her day job, this was her first trip to a foreign country. The trip changed her in a way that she continues to serve the needs of those in poverty back home in Corpus Christi, Texas through her church’s Taking It to the Streets ministry.

Sara’s revelation that led her to living a simple life and serving those in poverty involved a realization that she was living her life initially to the expectations of others. Status symbols, career ladders, and family status are no longer the metrics she uses to measure the impact of her life. Listen to this episode to learn more.

  1. I personally know Sara. She is one of the best blessings I have in my life. I thank God for allowing me to have such a loving and God serving woman in my life. Sara has taught me so much about living a true Christian walk by just being who she is on a daily basis. She is the true definition of the love God describes in His Word. Thank you, Sara. Thank you for being a Jesus follower and not just a fan.
