Sarah Quay

Counseling Intern 


Sarah is passionate about coming alongside people as they endure the hardships and struggles of life. She loves getting to know a person’s heart and unique story. Sarah believes Christ will meet us in our sorrows and that Scripture is the balm for our aching souls. She longs to help others draw deeper into God’s word and see how their experiences are not outside of God’s gracious redemption.

Sarah lives in Charlotte, NC with her husband Josh. Sarah is currently enrolled in the MACC program Reformed Theological Seminary and works part-time as a Preschool Teacher. Josh is wrapping up his MDiv at Reformed Theological Seminary and serves as both a Chaplain Candidate in the Army Reserve and as a Pastoral Assistant with their church. When they are not in class or working, Josh and Sarah enjoy spending time outdoors, trying new recipes – especially desserts! —and spending time with friends and family.

Grief and Our God

Grief is something I can count on as sure as I can count on the darkness setting in each night. As a counselor, grief is attached to many of the circumstances that bring people into my office. Whether it’s the grief of an unexpected loss, the sorrow of a broken marriage, or the sadness of a desire unfulfilled.

Prayer in the Process of Change

One of the most straightforward, and yet most easily overlooked tools we have in the process of change is prayer. Perhaps that sounds overly simplistic, and it may be depending on the complexities of one’s troubles.

Thanks & Thanksgiving

Our thankfulness must be rooted in the hope Jesus won for us at the cross, not in the status of our current circumstances. When we form our gratitude around the shape of eternity rather than the hardships and heartaches of today, we will see our thankfulness multiplied.

Reflections From the CCEF Conference

Last week the Fieldstone team had the opportunity to join with hundreds of other counselors and ministry leaders in Greensboro, North Carolina for the annual CCEF conference. Fieldstone’s Executive Director, Jonathan Holmes, currently serves on the CCEF Board of Directors, and was featured as one the speakers at the conference.
