Sarah's Hope

I realized that I needed to let everyone know that Operation Giggle is being done as a ministry of Sarah's Hope. Sarah's Hope is a non-profit organization started in April of this year by My father, Jack L. Epperson and I. Sarah's Hope will be a maternity home for unwed mothers over the age of 18 living in Bradley County and the surrounding areas.

Sarah's hope is named after my daughter Sarah. In April of 1999 I found out that I was pregnant with Sarah. I was 18 and unmarried and scared to death. My family rallied around Sarah's dad (Mitchell) and I and we were married and because of the grace of God we made it. Without the network I had as an 18 year old girl I have no clue where Sarah and I would be today. The thoughts of other young mothers struggling alone to bring a child into this world and raise him or her is unbearable. God began to speak to my dad about opening up a home for those girls. He began to have conversations with New Life Pregnancy Center and learned that there was a great need for this ministry. In April we hired a lawyer and began pursuing our Non-Profit status. We are currently saving money so that we can purchase a home to remodel and get ready to house our first 2 or 3 ladies. One of the Pastor's at the church I attended and his wife have raised three children and have agreed to move into the home and be the House Parents.

I am excited at the doors God is opening in my life and I want to serve Him and worship Him in every second of every day. I know that many of you have this same desire! Thank you so much for your support of Sarah's Hope and Operation Giggle.
