An Ocean Without: Learning to Embrace Boundaries: A Story in Poems

Sarah Steele

An attempt to live wholeheartedly within her Christian community led Sarah Steele into the trap of people-pleasing. What started as selfless giving escalated into a life-sucking addiction...until she was confronted with her own humanity as she faced a need that she could not fill and was forced to speak her first no. When her newly-set boundary was received with bitterness and resentment, the essence of Sarah's identity began to crumble, plunging her into a painful season of anxiety and hurt. This relatable collection lays bare the trials, growing pains, and victories experienced within codependency and offers a beacon of hope to those desiring to be set free from the bondage of unhealthy boundaries, ultimately finding solace in

the embrace of faith and community.

About the Author

Steele, Sarah: - Sarah Steele is a poet and lifelong teacher. These days, that looks like leading her four lively redheads in their Michigan homeschool and engaging with students of all ages in poetry workshops, watercolor classes, nature studies, Bible discussions, and neighborhood book clubs. You can find Sarah's poems in many publications, including The Way Back to Ourselves, where she is an editor. She has published two alphabet books with her graphic designer husband (yes, also a redhead). This is her first book for grownups.
