Sarah Tun

Biography

I write to enable others to discover who they were born to be. Don't we all seek to be the people we were meant to be? Through fiction and non-fiction I seek to inspire others to seek out their personal freedom and to live in the freedom Christ died to give to us.
I have walked with Christ for 30 years. Sometimes He's been in front of me, sometimes next to me. If you’re like me, you’ve often rushed ahead of him; yet, he has been ever-patient.
I began my career as a drama teacher, but hungry for personal and professional growth, God gave me room to explore acting, where I discovered the depth to my personality I never knew existed. I moved from my home in Canada to NYC and then to London, England. There, I was surprised to find my husband, who has been a rock of faith and commitment to our LORD.
My personal journey has been both an emotional and a spiritual one. I have grown out of my willful insecurity to become a spokesperson for self-esteem and spiritual growth, because the depth and significance of God's sovereignty and grace has come alive for me. He’s enabled me to grow beyond my own narrow self-concept, toward my potential to be the person He created me to be. In 2000 I received His call to write, where I have found vocational fulfillment. I’ve been personally surprised, protected and invigorated! Now, I challenge all of us to ask, "Am I fulfilled? Am I walking in freedom and the call God has for me?” For those who answer 'I am not', FREE TO BE has been written with you in mind, to steer you in the direction of freedom and fulfillment. This book is about living and moving in the completeness and wholeness that Jesus has given us, to be totally transformed into the person God created us to be... so that we can do the things we've been created to do.
Everything I write is about identity and purpose – about being and becoming the unique persons we have been created to be, in order to do that which we have been created to do. It is my goal to encourage each of us to accept who we are, joyful and ready to celebrate who God has made us to be. It is my desire that all of us will be free to be precisely the people we’ve been created to be.
I have returned to my homeland of Canada, to publish FREE TO BE, THE FAITHFUL PRINCE, and BUILDING COMMUNITY, with more to follow. I live with my husband and nine-year-old son on the sparkling shores of Lake Ontario.

Smashwords Interview

Where do you get your inspiration to write?
I have a dream that every person is able to live comfortably in their own skin. I think most of us need to work a bit at being able to do that. So, whether it is through fiction or non-fiction, for young children or for adults, I am motivated to encourage others to discover who they we born to be, and to live out their purpose.
From where do you get your authority to write?
I am a born again Christian believer and a person who has been through the mill of life, love, faith and self-discovery. My experience, my study of life and the Bible, and my walk with Jesus has led me to grow into the person I am. It is because of these things that I am able to share aspects of myself that will enable others to overcome their own obstacles of life, free to live as the persons they were born to be.

Christ sets us free. Are you living in the fullness of that freedom? Are you fulfilled and at peace with yourself? Christians carry some burdens we're not meant to carry. Jesus sets us free from oppression; self-esteem is available as a part of salvation. Join me on a journey into the marvelous light of God's truth, to accept who you are and discover all you were created to be.
