Sarai (meaning "my princess") was the wife of Abraham and a woman of great beauty. She endured a long and difficult journey with her husband while remaining barren for many years. God changed her name to Sarah (meaning "princess" or "cheiftainness") as a promise that she would become a mother of nations. God told Abraham that Sarah would have a child when she was nearly 90 years old. This made Sarah laugh, but she soon discovered she was pregnant with Isaac, and became the matriarch of the nation of Israel. She was praised as a woman of extraordinary faith in Hebrews 11. Sarah lived to age 127 and is one of two women whose age is given in the Bible.(Genesis 11, 12, 16, 17)
