Mother of Nations : Sarah (Sari)
16I will bless her and will surely give you a son by her. I will bless her so that she will be the mother of nations; kings of peoples will come from her.
Sarah, the wife of Abraham, became a mother of nations, and kings came from her. Who was this unique woman of faith, and what can we learn from her?
