Sarah Richards

Sarah has lived near the Canadian border in Minnesota, in the bayous of Louisiana, and on the rocky Atlantic coast of New England. She is thankful every day for God’s providence that brought her to live in Waconia in 2016.

At the University of Minnesota she earned a BS degree in Graphic Design with a minor in Scientific & Technical Communications. In addition to being a trained graphic designer, she is an award winning artist and a published author of six books: three fiction and three non-fiction. When Sarah is not reading or writing, she enjoys creating cross-stitch patterns which have been published in magazines, as well as taking her two dogs for hikes with her husband and son.

Sarah feels very blessed for the opportunity to share her love of reading, writing and art with the students of St. Joseph Catholic School. “It is an amazing to have found a calling to work in a place where faith and learning can be intertwined at an early age to help encourage and form students into the person God is calling them to become.”
