AGE: 43 OCCUPATION: CREATIVE AT A CHURCH, FELLOWSHIP NORTH | BLOGGER AT SARABETHJONES.COM CHILDREN: ELIZABETH, 17; JONATHAN, 16; AND WILL, 13 ONE OF MY FAVORITE THINGS TO DO WITH MY KIDS IS…
Watch a great movie or favorite TV show, or go and see a play. It’s so great to enjoy those things with them; they are old enough to get all the jokes and really talk about any issues that come up. We love stories at our house, and right now those are good ways for us to experience them together. THE BEST PART OF MY JOB IS…I get to work out my faith through art. My job involves a lot of different things: Photography, writing, design, performance. In all of it, I get to wrestle with and try to express this beautiful, mysterious thing that is faith. I GET INVOLVED WITH PROJECTS LIKE LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER BECAUSE…Everyone has a story to tell. LTYM is a
live-reading show featuring original stories read by the local people who wrote them. What I think is amazing is how it pulls people in who might not normally tell their story. For five minutes they stand on stage under the lights and share their story and the rest of us listen. It’s so powerful, both for the audience and for the storyteller. THERE ARE SO MANY REASONS TO COME SEE THIS YEAR’S LTYM SHOW, INCLUDING…Hearing those wonderful sto-
ries, of course! You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll be touched. The show is about motherhood, so it’s a perfect way to celebrate Mother’s Day with family or friends. Also, a portion of the ticket sales goes to support a wonderful cause, the Arkansas Coalition Against Domestic Violence. You can get tickets at listentoyourmothershow.com/littlerock. I LOVE TO TRAVEL, BECAUSE…What’s not to love? I love the
adventures of new places, and the restfulness that comes with someplace dear I’ve been a million times. I love the way I can lose myself in a bustling city, and how going somewhere wakes up part of me that is different from everyday me. I love to take pictures of it all and then find a place to sit with a nice cold drink at the end of the day.
