wife and mother of Isaac.
Sarah listened to God's messengers in the tent
Sarah and Abraham left their home in Haran to travel in Canaan, because
God promised to give them a land. For a time she and Abraham were in Egypt and they pretended to be brother and sister
out of fear that Sarah's beauty would incite the Egyptians to kill her
husband. Sarah lived ninety years of her life without bearing children
and asked Abraham to father a son (Ishmael)
through her servant Hagar. God promised that Sarah too would bear a son
and she laughed at the idea. Later she laughed for joy when her
baby was born, and she named the child Isaac which means "he laughed."
