Author Bio

Sarah Philpott, PhD, lives on a cattle farm in Tennessee. She is the mother of three young children and wife to one hard workin’ farmer (who has been her sweetheart since high school). Sarah is a former elementary teacher and went on to earn her PhD at the University of Tennessee. She is an award-winning writer who has contributed to numerous academic books such as Contemporary Social Studies: An Essential Reader and has been published in scholarly journals such as Social Studies and the Young Learner. Sarah also contributes to places such as the Huffington Post, Her View from Home, BonBon Break, Bethany Christian Services, and Pregnant Chicken.
 
These days, Sarah happily chooses to be a stay-at-home mom and spends her days cleaning peanut butter and jelly off the counter, dreaming of traveling the world, hosting "get-togethers" for her friends and family, and chasing her kids around the farm. She doesn’t believe in sharing desserts. Life is too short to share chocolate! Sarah is a lover of big earrings, black coffee, front-porch rocking chairs, star-gazing, river days, Doris Day, and all things Hemingway. Cherishing the life God has provided is her mantra.
 
Sarah is also the founder of the Loved Baby pregnancy loss support group and the #HonorAllMoms Mother’s Day movement. Visit with Sarah at allamericanmom.net where she writes about life on the farm and cherishing life in joy and sorrow. 

Editorial Reviews

The first place I went after losing our baby to miscarriage was the bookstore. I stared at the shelves looking for words of comfort and hope, longing to find an author who would also feel like a friend putting her arm around my shoulder. I wish Sarah’s book had been there then, and I’m so grateful it will be there for other women like me now.
Holley Gerth, best-selling author of You’re Already Amazing, holleygerth.com
 
Our culture programs us to feel as though motherhood should be all sunshine and roses—breakfasts in bed made by beaming, freshly-bathed children. We learn to think that a woman cannot fulfill her God-given destiny unless she nurtures the lives God enabled her to bear. And yet, when one of those lives is lost, or when life never begins, the world suddenly goes quiet, leaving these women alone and suffering. Here’s the key, though: When we offer our hurts to God, He will bring healing. He is the salve that soothes even the deepest wounds. Through Sarah’s words in Loved Baby, you will realize that you’re not called to forget but to welcome God into your pain. You can remember and honor and grieve and be made whole again. With God, even this is possible. Step into these pages like you’re walking into God’s comforting embrace, because that’s exactly what this book has to offer.
Kelly O’Dell Stanley, author of Praying Upside Down and Designed to Pray, kellyostanley.com

This book is the one I wish I’d had when I lost my first son the day after he was born sleeping and my third son when I was fifteen-weeks pregnant. For my aching, searching heart to have God’s truths and promises put together so compassionately and with such honesty would have been a gift, and one I now will graciously share with others who have to walk this life-changing path. God’s goodness and comfort flow freely from Sarah’s heart and will bring healing and redemption to so many.
Lori Mullin Ennis, editor of Still Standing Magazine
 
"Your numbers have dropped," the nurse said. "Let us know if the bleeding starts filling a pad every hour. I’m sorry." And with that, I learned I was about to have my first miscarriage and second pregnancy loss. A few days later, without bleeding or cramping in sight, I took my husband to Barnes & Noble. I wanted to find something—anything—I could read that would tell me what to expect. The books I found (which weren’t much) focused on family planning, or, get this, how not to have a miscarriage. Seriously? Women who miscarry needed help, and I found nothing that offered it. In the meantime, our story kept going through three more losses and our time with Z and finally our rainbow pregnancy with Ellie. Thank goodness some of our friends have been in the trenches and are ready to share their hearts and encouragement to women who need a worthwhile resource. Sarah Philpott is one of my friends in the baby loss community. Her book Loved Baby is a devotional and journal for baby loss moms. You will want to get this book in your hands!

I have known Sarah Philpott since the moment she was born. As the doctor who delivered her into this world in 1982, I experienced the joy that comes with new life. I have known her family for over fifty years. In fact, I delivered for her mother when she gave birth to her child born still. I have marveled at Sarah’s growth into a talented, deeply Christian wife, mother, and community servant. She is a dynamic, persistent, and dedicated young woman. Her career has consisted of writing many professional publications. Her dedication to intense research and careful analysis, combined with her innate skills interviewing and bonding with other women who have had similar outcomes, has resulted in this inspiring narrative, Loved Baby. She informs the reader about the trials and struggles mothers and fathers face in their post-loss journeys. She gives hope to those who think they will never conceive again or be successful at giving birth following the loss of a child. As the readers of this beautiful testimony will find out, Sarah has succeeded in giving others, even in the darkest times of their grief, the courage to face challenges and to return to a life of normalcy. She has walked with God on her path and knows that, through all things, if our faith is strong and the support of our beloved family and friends is present, we can overcome the adversities associated with this devastating occurrence. It is a distinct honor and pleasure to recommend Sarah’s heart-felt thoughts to those who have endured pregnancy loss and those who try to help and support their loved ones. Loved Baby will fill you with healing, hope, and God’s love.

"They instinctively knew to show me quiet love" is only one example of the exquisite healing words Sarah Philpott uses to help those of us grieving after a pregnancy loss. Her remarkable insights, coupled with her enormous compassion, give us the guidance and strength we need to walk through this devastating journey and know we are not alone. If you have ever loved someone who has suffered through a pregnancy loss, Loved Baby may well be the answer to a prayer. I am grateful for Sarah’s ability to impart her wisdom and spirituality, hope and grace for all of those who will benefit the most. And bless the beautiful babies in heaven who will live on in our souls forever.
Lisa Leshaw, MS, CMHC mental health professional

Christian women who have known the unfathomable pain of pregnancy loss at any stage need this devotional. The writer Sarah Philpott is with you on your journey, and through her transparency regarding her own loss, recovery, and faith walk, she offers guidance on healing for mothers post-loss.

The death of a baby is one of the worst and most traumatic experiences of a parent’s life. The grief that follows is all-consuming and often isolating. Sarah Philpott has created a way for parents to process their own grief journey while being reassured they are not alone. Loved Baby is a beautiful resource for bereaved parents in their darkest days.
Lindsey J. Wimmer, CPNP, CPLC, executive director of Star Legacy Foundation

Loved Baby left me spellbound. I cried and rejoiced at the same time at the healing power that God can bring.

I wish I’d had this book to read days after my loss instead of using "Dr. Google" and the like for information on miscarriage.
Emily Aziz, CPA

In this book, you will feel like Sarah is speaking directly to you as a gentle friend and a loving sister. She truly understands the pain of loss and has a beautiful way with comforting words and practical advice. I love that she pairs godly encouragement with factual information about child loss to help address all parts of grieving: the intellectual, spiritual, physical, and emotional. If I had Loved Baby as a resource during the darkest stages of my miscarriage, I certainly would not have felt so alone. The Loved Baby ministry was instrumental in my healing, and I have faith that this book will be instrumental in yours.
Rosemary Ferrera, mother, former Miss Virginia, & Christian blogger, SoulStrongFitness.com
 
Loved Baby is the book I wish I had after my first loss. Sarah Philpott is like a loving sister who has been there, guiding us through. I love the easy-to-apply soul work sections. I cried through most of the book. I would say that even after months and months of grief counseling, reading almost every book out there about pregnancy loss and how to cope, and being in a support group, Loved Baby is what brought me the rest of the way. I can’t even find the best words to tell you how extremely helpful this is going to be for so many women.
Jessica Knipprath, mother

I feel like this book was instrumental in my healing from my miscarriages, almost seven years since my last one.
Jenny Tilley, RN
 
Loved Baby deals with a topic so dear to my heart because of my experience with three years of infertility and the loss I experienced with my first two babies. I would have given anything to have someone walk me through that season with spiritual insight as well as personal experience. This is why I am thrilled about my friend Sarah Philpott’s new book. Whether you are still grieving or not, you can trust her with your heart.

    This book is beautifully written and gently guides you through the process of grieving the loss of a child. It seems like Sarah Philpott was speaking directly to me as I read though this the book. The 31 devotions are the perfect length for helping you to process your emotions while not overwhelming you. Her Biblical insights comfort you throughout the book. I love how each chapter ends with comforting words and an action plan to help you heal your broken heart in a healthy way. The fact that pregnancy and child loss is such a taboo issue makes this book even more vital to the healing process. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has experienced any type of loss in their life. It also makes the perfect gift to let others know that you are thinking about them.

    The author of Loved Baby knows firsthand the deep pain of having a baby die in her womb. She wrote this devotional to be a compassionate companion for women walking the lonely road of losing an unborn child.

    Inside its pages, Sarah Philpott includes personal stories from her own losses and wisdom and insight from other women who have experienced miscarriage or a stillbirth. Importantly, she refutes the shame and guilt that often accompanies pregnancy loss.

    With vulnerability and empathy, Sarah discusses the common stages of grief, explains triggers that often fuel bitterness and anger, and offers advice for navigating this difficult journey toward hope. She also provides medical facts and tips for caring for yourself in the process of healing.

    Loved Baby is filled with biblical truth and comfort and practical yet honest advice. This devotional will come alongside hurting women, providing comfort and reassurance that they will make it through even this most horrible pain of losing their loved baby.

    Whether a woman loses a baby in the first trimester or her infant is stillborn, the grief is real.

    After my first baby was born into heaven, I found myself lost in a deep dark hole, with little hope to ever get out. Eventually, God helped me see a glimmer of light. That started me on the path toward healing.

    How helpful it would have been to have a comforting voice of understanding come beside me. One that would help me find the way out of that deep dark hole. How much easier my journey through multiple miscarriages would have been if I would have had that kind soul whispering to me as Sarah does in Loved Baby:

    "Grieve away.... But grieve in hope. Stay rooted in hope, because your little one is blooming in heaven."

    *I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
