Philpott, Sarah

IMG_9982 (1) copy_2Sarah is a former elementary, middle, and university level teacher. She earned her Ph.D from the University of Tennessee in 2013. Now her primary focus is raising two young mischievous children and being a farmer’s wife to her high school sweetheart. She spends her days cleaning peanut butter & jelly off the counter, dreaming of traveling the world, hosting “get-togethers” for her family & friends, and chasing her kids around the farm. Cherishing the life God has provided is her mantra.

A published academic author, she recently began a blog: AllAmericanMom ( offers visitors Christian support and information about pregnancy loss.

In between the births of her two children, Sarah had two miscarriages. This experience caused her to do what she does best: research a topic. After recognizing a need for a Christian voice and advocate specific to the topic of miscarriage, she created a private online environment of women willing to share their miscarriage stories. She is writing a book that looks at the sensitive topic of pregnancy loss and also cherishes the life that was conceived. She also hosts a Loved Baby Miscarriage support group on Facebook. This sisterhood is open for anyone to join. She wants to show others how God can comfort us in all our afflictions (2 Corinthians 1:3-7) and also provide women a safe place to share their hearts.

In the future Sarah hopes to give her blog readers a glimpse into small-town Americana life. Sarah is a true southerner. Please know that the invitation is always open to come sit on her front porch, drink sweet tea, and watch the sunset.
