This photo just shows how in awe I am of my mother ☆
A woman of stature, grace and endless amounts of hugs. A woman, who despite how she feels, continues to put others before herself. A woman who constantly reminds us she loves us with simple phrases such as, "have you eaten today?" "how was your sleep last night?" "do you need a ride?" "want to go for coffee?" "what do you want for dinner?"

A woman who constantly reminds us that it's about the little things in life and that you can try, but money doesn't really buy happiness - but it will work for a little bit. A woman who provides a safe environment to live, think, act, sing, talk, dance etc. In your eyes, she'll always be beautiful. 

A woman who will hold you tight when you've just broken up with the boy you love and remind you that God has a plan and some good will come out of this. A woman who'll threaten to go talk to the parents of the bullies that wouldn't leave you alone. A woman who just wants to see you succeed and thrive in your passion. She'll constantly remind you that it's totally human to not like the way you look and that you're beautiful just as you are. 

Her love is something that no one can explain. It's made of deep devotion, sacrifice, and pain. It's endless and unselfish. Nothing can destroy it. It's patient and forgiving. It never fails or falters. 

A woman who just wants to see you thrive and grow into the wonderful human being you are. She's full of second chances and forgiveness. You can count on her for anything and you know she'll always be there for you. No matter what age you are - she'll always love you. She's interested in your life and wants to hear all your stories. Her advice heals and trust me - she's pretty much always right. 

She'll wipe the tears off your cheeks and remind you how strong you are. When you're unwell - she'll stay by your side. She's a prayer warrior and you're always the first in her prayers. She's a gift from God. 

This is a woman you need in your life - and if you don't have that, I apologise. I pray you have someone in your life with all these attributes. 

A blessing, an inspiration, a friend - that's a mother. I'm so thankful for mine - what about you?

I'd never looked forward to being any age more than I did for the big 1  8  .

I honestly thought being 18 would open doors of opportunity for me but as it turns out, people's idea of being 18 involves getting incredibly drunk and voting for the worst party possible just for the laughs.

Seventeen was a beautiful age for me. I had a lot of firsts - first job, first kiss, first boyfriend, first car, first time preaching, first time being able to drive by myself, first furniture purchase (I love my white desk, cheers Warehouse Stationary). It never really hit me just how much I would miss being 17. That funny in between age where everything is just fine. At least that's how it was for me anyways - we're all different. I was incredibly happy at 17, I could stay there forever if I wanted to.

See the thing is, it's hard to think about growing up when you're in the midst of doing it. It's hard to know what you want. Sometimes there are so many voices in your head - it's difficult to actually know which is yours. Whether it be your parents pestering you to make up your mind about college next year or whether it's your pastor's constantly feeding your mind with practical life tips while telling you to listen out for what God is saying. It can sometimes get too much - and I completely understand.

When I turned 18, I was on a high. I thought I was invincible. I thought now that I had all this freedom, nothing could stop me and my life from here on out would be perfect. As you know from my last post - I was so wrong.

See the thing is, life is never going to be perfect. You're always going to have good and bad days. Sometimes it feels like the end of the world and other days it feels like life can't get any better than it is.

Throughout the first few days of being 18, I've realised a few things.

There's no reset button in life. You can't take anything back, and you can't undo anything. All of your actions have consequences, and the things you say and do today will have a lasting impact on the rest of your life. You have to understand that, and be aware of that while making decisions.

I'm learning to accept that and honestly I wouldn't trade the last few days for anything.

Here's to a year of learning from my mistakes and how to be an adult. Here's to more coffee and more God. Here's to the good and the bad. Here's to recovery.

I only intend to go up from here friends - what about you?

On the 11th of June, just a day after my birthday, I saw my life spiral down from my high of turning 18 to bursting into flames in a mere 24 hours. Sounds a little dramatic but that's how I felt - I felt like I had failed everyone and that there was no coming back from it, this was just my life now. The days following involved me crying every 10 minutes, drinking at times I shouldn't be drinking and meetings upon meetings about how I could fix my life.

Burning out - a term I never thought I would ever link to my life. The official term for burn out is: ruin one's health or become completely exhausted through overwork. 

To me, it seemed like the world had turned against me - it still feels like that. I've been overworked in all areas of my life - I let my guard down when I shouldn't have, and I don't know how to say 'no'. I realised that I may try and do everything because the idea of being a leader excites me and I'd love to prove to myself that I can balance all these not so little things on my plate, but that led me astray. I drifted so far from God I didn't even realise it, until that night on the 11th of June. 

So why did I change the name of this blog? well there are a couple of reasons:

1. When I first started this blog, I actually couldn't think of a name so I went with The Worship Intern because that's what I am. I told myself at a later date I'd change the name to what is relevant in my life.

2. It's been 3 days and I don't feel much better, but I'm going to do something about that. I'm changing the way I look, think, act. I'm not changing so drastically that I'm not Sarah Penn, but I'm changing enough to leave behind the old, burnt out Sarah. 

Falling into You. There's a song by Hillsong name Falling Into You and that song is all about pressing into God because literally without Him, you can't do anything. I was listening to the song and I thought - this is me, this is exactly what I need right now. I need more of God. I need him to swoop in and pick me up off my knees and help me turn my life around because I never want to feel like this again. 

Speaking of change, I'll be turning this blog into more of a lifestyle blog so it's relevant to everyone, not just people in the worship field of ministry. I'll continue to do worship related things because that's my passion - but we all need a little change sometimes.

So welcome to Falling into You - I hope you join me as I journey through this. 

SOMETIMES WE ALL JUST NEED A LITTLE CHANGE

As I walked to my car after work, I was trying to wrap my head around all the things I was thankful for. I got in my car and realised that in that little 2 minute walk - my list was far from finished. That's when this lightbulb moment took place. First the idea was to just do one large post about all the things I was thankful for but then I thought, "if I was to go into detail of every little thing I was thankful for - that'd be an extremely long post. What if I did a BLOG SERIES?!" and that little thought has brought me to where I am right now - sitting on my bed writing this post.

I guess you could say I've been inspired by things and people to write this series. Here's my lil list of inspo;


  • My friend Danielle wrote an awesome blog post about being thankful. Such a great read - I highly recommend checking it out.
  • One of my brothers in Christ will post one (or more) things on his Snapchat each day with the hashtag #TYJ - which stands for Thank You Jesus. He does it for most things, right from the beautiful day down to the fact he got his favourite meal for lunch. I always look forward to his Snapchat stories because it's always so full of encouragement.
  • Every prayer guide/pastor/worship leader/even the freaking Bible has said, at least once, to always give thanks for everything God has provided you with - the good and bad. I've never been the best at daily devotions and honestly that's just because I'm lazy - but lately I've been trying to step up my game. Every time I start my daily prayer guess what I start with; yup you guessed it, all the things I'm thankful for

So as I walk into this series, I hope you understand I am letting you into some of the greatest (and worst) parts of my life, and I'm not planning on sugar coating anything. This series is all about being real and raw and hopefully this series will help you realise just how great our God is (cause if you didn't already know, He's pretty great). I pray you'll see God in this series and in no way is this me trying to flaunt my life. I'm going to show you my highs and my lows. You'll see the big things plus the small things - because gratitude comes in many sizes. 

With all that being said, welcome to Blessings Upon Blessings.

Have you ever had the strangest sense of deja vu? Not just your typical, oh I've experienced this feeling before, but more like a strong pulling of, you've been here before, just as if you were reliving the moment? For me, that was Worship Camp 2017.

Okay I'm exaggerating a little bit. The whole camp was a completely new experience for me. It was something I've never ever experienced before - except for this one moment which might sound completely minor to you - but for me, it was a huge deal.


This is a story I thought I'd never share because I never thought this would happen to me, but here I am, sharing this story that did indeed happen.

I'm not really sure how to word this story at all because there's a lot of detail that you would only understand if you've visited the camp site we went to for yourself, but I'll try my best.

So the story starts about half a year before I even knew that I was going to be a worship intern and help plan and run a worship camp. One night last  year, I had a dream. You know how you can remember some dreams and then completely forget the others? Well this was one that I wanted to forget, but for some reason I just couldn't.

 The dream all starts in that room. Yes, look a lil  to your left, there's a room circled. I knew  exactly where I was and I knew exactly who I  was with. I'm not going to mention any names in  this post due to privacy but the jist of the dream  is this:

 I was standing at the front of the room, by the  door, looking out at the room. Three rows of  chairs were set up in front of me and there were  a few people scattered around the room and  sitting in some of the chairs but I couldn't make  out their faces. There were 3 boys that caught  my attention. They were sitting in the front row,  smiling and clapping at something someone said or did. I knew 2 of the boys quite well because I played in the band with them but the other boy, I had seen his face around school but I'd never spoken to him until this year. I woke up the next morning ready to move on with my life. Sure I did the typical oh what a funny dream! Probably means nothing talk but then I proceeded to get ready for my day. I had completely forgotten about the dream, and to be clear - I wanted to forget about it. I didn't want to think about the fact that I had a dream about 3 guys in the year below me - do you know how weird that would be if they ever found out? (hence another reason why I'm not mentioning names, but they can probably figure out who they are).

Guys the point I'm trying to make is this: I dreamt of worship camp before I even had anything to do with it.

The last day of camp I was standing at the front of the room by the door looking out at all the pupils who were seated throughout the 3 rows of chairs. Nathan had just said something funny and I looked at the front row and there were the 3 boys, clapping and smiling and that's when I was hit with my sudden sense of deja vu.

Like I said earlier, some of you are probably wondering why I thought this was such a huge deal that I decided to make a blog post about it. Well, I just wanted to let you know that you are always part of a bigger picture. That camp already meant so much to me so when I experienced that moment of deja vu, it just meant so much more because I knew in that moment that I was exactly where God has wanted me to be months before I even thought I wanted it for myself.


We can totally push it to the side and ignore all the signs - just like I tried to do with the signs - or we can stop and say actually, what if this means something?

Okay I know some of you are probably thinking what's a sign and what isn't a sign but that's the thing. We just have to keep our eyes open and our hearts and ears willing to hear whatever God has to tell us. He can tell us in many different ways - dreams, through our daily Bible readings, through other people, messages, worship etc - we just have to keep coming back to the core question:

God, what are YOU trying to tell me right now?

I've heard many stories of dreams coming to life from quite a few of my really close family and friends - I just never thought it would happen to me. It's crazy how such a small moment can change the whole dynamic and meaning of a situation for one person. It's also crazy how we can forget about something for months on end, but as soon as it's right in front of our eyes - it's like it never left our mind in the first place. It's cool to hear stories like this, but always remember how you were able to tell the stories in the first place. (hint: He's kind of a big deal

With that being said, do you have any cool stories/experiences like this or anything similar? I'm a sucker for stories like these - they're so intriguing! Let me know below or through message, I'd love to hear!

March was one of the best months. Yeah the worship started a lil bit rocky at the beginning but we fought through and with worship camp at the end of March - we were unstoppable. All of the students were literally on fire for God.

With that being said, I'm going to do a seperate playlist with the songs we played at camp. Here's the playlist for March!

WAKE: HILLSONG YOUNG & FREE

The roof, the roof, the roof is on fire
We don't need the devil cause the devil, he's a liar



PURSUE/ALL I NEED IS YOU: HILLSONG

Seriously guys, this song is so beautiful. And when she breaks through with the "All I Need Is You" bit - seriously *enter heart eyes emoji here*



THE STAND: HILLSONG

Such a powerful declaration song



YOU ARE GOOD: ISRAEL HOUGHTON

Seriously one of my favourite praise songs ever



YOU MAKE ME BRAVE: AMANDA COOK/BETHEL

This song was one of my favourite songs to sing last year, and still is! There is such a powerful message in this song and I pray that we all believe it



TOUCH THE SKY: HILLSONG UNITED

This song is gorgeous. The metaphor of touching the sky when your knees hits the ground is so beautiful.



GREAT ARE YOU LORD: ALL SONS AND DAUGHTERS

Thankful that God continues to put breath in our lungs so we can sing songs as beautiful as this




What songs are your church/organisation singing at the moment? Let me know in the comments!

... to come die on the cross for us? Folks here it is - The Worship Intern's first ever Easter post.

I love Jesus - I think we all know that by now. But for real, He's incredible. He just honestly keeps surprising me. Firstly, He died on the cross for us while we were still sinners and didn't deserve it whatsoever. Secondly, He rose again?! I don't know about you but that seems impossible yet He did it. He continues to bless and guide us. He set us free - we are no longer slaves to fear.

This year, Easter was something special. There was something different about it. Growing up in a Christian home, I've experienced a lot of Easter services so I thought I knew it all - but here's the thing about God - there's always so much more to learn.

I think most of us know the story of Easter, and if we don't know the full story, we definitely know the jist of it - Christ died on the cross to save us from our sins and then rose from the dead 3 days later. Classic, simple, can't forget it. But there's so much more to it that I've heard year after year but it's only really stuck out to me this year.

We were there. You and I were both there when Jesus said His final words on the cross. We were both there as they beat Him and mocked Him. We were there.

You're probably thinking, "What do you mean we were there? I wasn't alive back then, I don't remember witnessing any of this!"

Correct. We didn't witness it with our own eyes, but we were there. We were in His heart - we were the reason He was dying in the first place. He loved us so much, He stepped down from His throne and gave up His life just so we could live. He rose again and ascended into Heaven to prepare our home. He's alive, He's alive, He's alive - and His love is very real.

We can't let fear hold us back now. Christ gives us strength and the resurrection changes everything. We shouldn't feel the need to live in fear when Christ did what He did. He died to give us life and I don't know about you, but I no longer want to live my life in fear knowing that Christ set me free.

I simply can't put into words how much this Easter meant to me. I finally found my role in the crucifixion. I'll never know the pain and suffering Jesus went through but I can feel His love. I see His love every single day. I see it when I first open my eyes in the morning because it's a blessing I'm still alive. I see it through the people God has placed in my life because they wouldn't be there without Him. I see it through the way I have a roof over my head and plenty of food to eat.

Guys, the Trinity is incredible. I'll never have the words to express how grateful I am that God continues to bless me even though I feel like I don't deserve it.

"Jesus said to her,
'I am the resurrection and the life. 
Whoever believes in me, though he die,
yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me 
shall never die. 
Do you believe this?'"
- John 11:25-26

Do you believe that? Do you believe that we can now live without fear because our Saviour is alive in us today? Through Christ we have life - what more could you ask for? 

Thank you Jesus, You set me free.
Thank you God, You robbed the grave. 
Thank you Holy Spirit, You're constantly with us.

What other King leaves His glory to die for His people? My redeemer - that's who. 


WHAT OTHER KING LEAVES HIS THRONE

Monday, 17 April 2017


... to come die on the cross for us? Folks here it is - The Worship Intern's first ever Easter post.

I love Jesus - I think we all know that by now. But for real, He's incredible. He just honestly keeps surprising me. Firstly, He died on the cross for us while we were still sinners and didn't deserve it whatsoever. Secondly, He rose again?! I don't know about you but that seems impossible yet He did it. He continues to bless and guide us. He set us free - we are no longer slaves to fear.
