Sara Jewell


Sara Jewell is an author, freelance writer, teacher, lay worship leader and poet who writes about faith and spirituality, death and grieving, and country living – which, when one of her chickens dies, definitely brings everything together.

Through her work, she strives to shine a light on the resilience of the human heart and spirit. Her writing is a mix of curiosity and poignancy, opinion and humour.

Her new book, An Alphabet of Faith, will be published in November 2021 by Wood Lake Books. The 26 free-verse A to Z essays explore what it means to live faithfully and spiritually in the beautiful and broken world of the 21st century.

Sara’s first book, Field Notes: A City Girl’s Search for Heart and Home in Rural Nova Scotia (Nimbus), a collection of essays, can be ordered through a bookstore or online. 

Her “pandemic project”, A Jewell of a Cookbook (self-published), is a collection of stories about food and her favourite recipes. It’s available through the “Contact” link.
