  • She also has degrees in psychology/counseling from Tufts University, Covenant Theological Seminary, and Georgia State University.
  • She decided to study philosophy prior to becoming a Christian because she was in search of the “truth.”

  • All her books are based on the claims that she communicates with God.
  • Young practices “listening and writing,” which means she prays for peace and the ability to hear God, asks for the Holy Spirit’s assistance, receives and thanks the Lord for the message, and then writes what she says was communicated to her.
  • Due to a practice of writing in the first person, Young’s writing has led her work to be criticized for presenting her personal thoughts and ideas as the Lord’s message. She has defended herself against these critics by stating that when she uses the pronoun “I” in her work, she speaks as if God is speaking to the reader, not as if she (Sarah) is the one doing the speaking.

  • Young is said to be a recluse and hardly gives interviews except by email.

  1. Sarah,

    I am very happy to have been led to your books. Now I pretty much read my daily devotions from “Jesus Always” and they have led me to so much gratitude to Jesus for His love for me. I thank Him for you and your writing and pray that you continue in this blessed endeavor. It has helped me so very much. I purchased many and gave them to family and friends as gifts.

    Thank you again, and may God continue to be with you in your writing.

  2. Thank you, Sarah.

    I have been with Jesus all my life…I always say to god when I pray, thanks to my parents for introducing me to you Jesus, way before I can remember. I always loved Him, and he has taken me through some troubling times.

    My journey has been long, eighty-one years now. But, I still enjoy reading all of your books, just reaffirms what I already know.

    Thank you again,

  3. January 4, 2022.

    I was given this book “Jesus always” by my husband Apostle Cecil Riley. We are pastors of the Freedom Hall Church in Brooklyn, New York. This book has been an eye-opener for me. I had no idea of how much I was missing with reference to my relationship with God. Thanks so much. I am praying for you Sarah Young that God will give you long life to continue His work.

    1. Does Sarah Young have an email address? Her devotionals bless me over and over again. I thank GOD for leading me to her writings!

  4. I have found 35 daily devotionals in Jesus Calling that I wish to share with my son who is hiking the Appalachian Trail this year. Hiking a 2,200-mile trail and walking each day in life’s journey has many parallels. My question to Sarah is whether or not it is appropriate to share publicly the slightly paraphrased version with my son as long as I give credit each time and state that I have paraphrased it slightly to fit my son’s situation.

  5. I have become an avid reader/student of Sarah Young’s books. I read each one over and over daily, as I have for the past 3-4 years since I first read them. Each day gives me the strength appropriate to meet that day’s needs. I have already begun her latest, Jesus Listens. and love it. Sarah has taught me to talk with Jesus throughout each day and to listen to his voice. Many years ago, when I was in dire financial trouble, my then spiritual guru told me to write a thank you note to God daily. I balked but finally got into the habit. I haven’t missed a day since 1997. Even traveling the world, including Tibet, China, and godless countries. How I wish I could thank Sarah Young personally for the courage and love her words have brought to me, and the healing friends, to whom I’ve given her books, have experienced.

  6. Sarah,

    Gesara will happen in Australia and along with it, the quantum healing med beds. Simon Parkes from the UK and Elon MUSK with his Starlink satellites will heal you of your ailments. We too are 75 years old and know diabetes and cancer can be cured with med beds. The evil people, mainly Rockefellers, don’t want us well and withheld 6,000 medical patents from us. We have read many of your books.

  7. Dear Sarah,

    A Thank You Will Never Be Enough ♥️

    One of my nieces (sister’s daughter-in-law) gave me Jesus Calling, while my oldest sister was in the hospital with Diabetes complications over 12 years ago. I Have since given many copies of Jesus Calling to family & Friends. Will continue to do so. Also To my 2nd oldest sister, who has eye disease where you actually slowly go blind, I got her the book with the CDs. She can now listen To Jesus Calling everyday.

    The book has been a great Blessing for many!

    You are a great student of the Lord. Thank you for listening to his call…you have given life to so many with the words of your books. Thank you Lord for your guidance to Sarah to be able to share.

    I am reading the 3rd devotional of Sarah Young. I color in my Bible using a different color the Scripture verses she uses and finds out there is not much need to use a new color as the verses now have been previously used in the other 2 books. Some of the daily devotions use the same 3 or 4 verse combination as previously noted for the topic.

    I would think that out of the 31, 102 verses in the Bible a greater selection would be available for a new book, however, more Scripture research would be required to use on the various new subjects.

  9. Like so many others, Jesus Calling seemed to match so many of my needs at the time when I needed revelation or answers. While I respect the views of her critics, I have disagreed with them. I would like to send her an email or letter regarding three subjects: Three powerful scriptures that were supernaturally provided to me, a repeated butterfly experience, and some other information regarding Lyme disease, which I likely contracted within the past month.

    I would welcome her response provided she feels compelled to do so. God deals with that.

  10. I have some information out of a dental book that I would like to share with Sarah about vertigo. I read her devotional books and wiykcc. Do like to send a case study out of my book?

  11. I received Jesus Calling, from my neighbor in 2015, and I love following it every day. It does seem like Jesus knows what scripture reading I need that day. I will continue to read this every year. Thanks, Sarah.

  12. Jesus Calling was given to me by a friend over a year ago and it is and will be a part of my morning connection with God for the rest of my life.

  13. As I read daily messages from “Jesus Calling”, it is as though the Lord speaks to my very situations.

  14. Could you please be so kind as to help me?

    I would like to send a letter to Sarah Young. I am a fellow college alumna of hers.

    Would you please send me her contact information (email address and/or snail mail address) to which I may send correspondence?

    Thank you very much.

    I would appreciate any information you may provide.

    My email address is

  15. Thank you Sarah Young for bringing me closer to God through your beautiful writings………God Bless you for sharing his & word. Jean

  16. Sarah, I first received your book “Jesus Calling” from you with a letter as a supporter of MTW.

    I have given many of your devotionals to family and friends as I find that they speak to my heart along with memorizing the daily scriptures. Thank you for answering God’s call to write the books as they give us daily inspiration especially in today’s age of covid lockdowns.

    May God continue to richly bless you and your family as you continue in your work for Him.
