LOGAN WOLFRAM | Allume Owner, Host, and Hospitality Artist
Logan believes that hospitality is more than just a gift given to some. She describes it as a biblical mandate to cultivate a welcoming heart towards others. While it may come more naturally to some, she sees hospitality as an opportunity to serve one another and create environments that can encourage and uplift. Hospitality is more than just entertaining…it is a focus on true relationship.
Logan has a passion for people and over the years has honed some life skills in the areas of restaurant work, event planning, and interior decorating that have increased her understanding that environments can evoke emotion and create opportunity for fellowship. She desires to see the atmosphere created at Allume Social enhance the experience and cultivation of community among attendees. As Allume Social strives to encourage and uplift women in their God given callings as wives, mothers, friends, and writers, Logan will work hard to work on details that you may not notice, but will hopefully leave you feeling more welcomed, cared for, and encouraged.
Logan is the daughter of a most extravagant and hospitable King, wife to a great man in the army of the Lord, and mother to 2 children on this earth (4 in heaven) who she strives to prepare as warriors for the Kingdom of Heaven. In her spare time when she can find it, she loves to create…in the kitchen, with crafts, home decor, and party planning. She is in her element when the things she creates bring life to other people. She blogs candidly about her creations, adventures, and misadventures in life at LifeForDessert.com.
SARAH MAE | Allume Founder, Host, Idea Slinger, and Head Cheerleader
According to Strengths Finder, ”Ideation” is one of Sarah Mae’s top strengths, which makes sense seeing as she lies awake in bed at night with her brain jumping from one idea to another while sleep eludes her. She thrives on developing ideas and figuring out ways to create “game-changers” in her sphere of influence and beyond.
She is also a connector of people, which is why Allume is tucked in so close to her heart. Allume is the quintessential kindred spirit gathering, a warm and welcoming place that brings people together from all over the world and says, “sit down, have some coffee, and put your feet up while we bounce ideas, encourage one another, and grow together.” It’s one of her happiest of places.
Sarah Mae is an author with Thomas Nelson and Tyndale. Her first book, Desperate – Hope for the Mom Who Needs to Breathe, was released January 2013 by Thomas Nelson.
And of course, Sarah Mae is a blogger. She blogs at SarahMae.com.
She lives with her husband Jesse and their three babes in the beautiful Amish countryside of Pennsylvania.

CHRISTIN SLADE | Super Awesome Administrative Cracker-Jack
Christin is the contemplative, detail-oriented, over-planning, list-maker type. Maybe it has something to do with her addiction to office supplies, particularly pens. She is determined to smooth out the wrinkles of any operation, starting with the managing of her home.
Her goal is to care for the administrative details of Allume so the little things don’t hinder the rich experience of community and connection. The fellowship of women is a powerful and crucial element of growth for both the woman, and the community as a whole. The beauty of raw, genuine, and deep kindred is a necessity for healing and friendship.
A wife of 12 years and mother to five, her days are full of plenty of busy and goodness. As a mother, sometimes you go through the trenches and sometimes you need some help and encouragement along the way. Christin writes for mother’s to encourage, equip, and motivate them to raise their children in the Lord on her blog, Joyful Mothering and encourages writer moms at ChristinSlade.com.
