Sarah Rodriguez RhodesWe are pleased to announce that Sarah Rodriguez Rhodes will be joining the line-up for the 2018 TLSM Impact Luncheon. Sarah is a national speaker whose blog is followed by thousands.  She is the author of From Depths We Rise. She is no stranger to tragedy as she’s journeyed through infertility, a near-death experience with her infant daughter, and being widowed at a very young age.  As she stood by her husband’s side while he battled cancer, she began to understand how hard it was going to be for her to be a single mom.  The life-altering cancer diagnosis took her husband at only 35 years old.  She was unexpectedly left as a single mother of two young children, a place she had never expected to be.  Sarah began the Choose Joy project as a way to honor her late husband’s legacy by random acts of kindness that exhibit love to others.  Sarah has been featured in several media venues including People Magazine, Redbook, The Blaze, and others. Sarah is passionate about encouraging others with her story, giving voice to those who are walking the single parenting journey, and living each day to the fullest. Sarah makes her home in Oklahoma City with her beautiful children and her new husband.  For more information, visit HERE.
