Sarah Elisabet Oftedal of the Martha and Mary House
Martha and Mary House provides a home for pregnant women in crisis. Its housemother, Sarah Elisabet Oftedal, in talking about her journey to Orthodox Christianity, says, “I felt a glimmer of hope that Christianity was real and could save me from nothingness. Since I could not prove it false, I made a desperate leap of faith across the abyss of what seemed absurd and promised God that I would live the rest of my life as if He was there.” I could have said those same words myself!
But Sarah Elisabet really lives those words. Here’s more about her journey and her current work.
