I pray people will see that life is not about us, it is about doing everything possible to give glory to the Lord in all we do.

Within the pages of Sarah Liborio’s new book, My Once Upon a Time ($25.99, paperback, 978-1-61379-101-1; $41.99, hardcover, 978-1-61379-102-8; $9.99, eBook, 978-1-61904-966-6), readers will find themselves swept up in a real-life love story that will also take them on a journey through the mission field in the Dominican Republic. All was right in the Liborio’s life. Their marriage had been approved and blessed by the Lord; they were living and working in the mission field and very much in love. Then, the unthinkable happened. The Lord chose to take Sarah’s husband home at the age of twenty-nine, long before the couple had done all the work they had planned to do. This book tells of a woman’s faith in the Lord and her life as a widow, caring for her two small children and living in the Dominican Republic.

“I pray people will see that life is not about us, it is about doing everything possible to give glory to the Lord in all we do. I want my readers to know a life dedicated to the Lord, no matter what the cost, is possible and worth it,” Liborio expresses. “God used a man named Hugo to change my life dramatically at age nineteen and then again at age twenty-nine. This book is a little bit about what happened before and after those two ages in my life, but it’s mostly about the divine adventure that took place during those ten years.”

Sarah Liborio is a full-time missionary for SCORE International. She lives and serves in the Dominican Republic with her two small children. Her passion is working with women’s ministries including one-on-one discipleships, and a prostitution ministry called Lily House. Her greatest ministry, however, and the most challenging, is raising her two children, Mattias and Layla. Liborio prays daily that God will use her to help them grow to be strong followers of Jesus.
