An Interview with Mrs. Sarah Hatfield

 Women of Worth was honored to interview Mrs. Sarah Hatfield of Greenville, Ohio. Sarah, along with her husband and children, will be providing sacred music for us at our WOW gathering in Gatlinburg on April 6th.  Take a few moments to become better acquainted with Sarah, and then join us in Gatlinburg or online to listen to the beautiful music their family will share!

WOW: Thank you for taking time for us today, Sarah! Let’s begin with how you met your husband.

Sarah: I met Travis when I was a teenager and his uncle came to pastor the church I attended. Travis’s family attended a different church, but they would often come and visit our services. A friendship developed between us during that time, and we eventually began dating. As time went by, we became best friends and fell in love. We married in the Fall of 2004, after I had graduated from high school. We have now been married for 17 years.

WOW: Do you have any advice for young ladies who may be waiting to see if marriage is part of their future?

Sarah: My advice for young, single women is that it is always worth waiting for the man God has for you! Choose wisely and don’t settle for less than God’s best. He has a special purpose for your life, and it’s important to learn to be content while waiting for the right one to share your life with!

WOW: Tell us a little bit about your beautiful family.

Sarah: God has blessed Travis and me with 5 wonderful children: Jaelynn, Remington, Haddasah, Weston, and Colton. (Their ages range from 8-15.) They bring us a lot of joy and keep things lively and busy around our home! Some of the things we enjoy doing together are bike rides, hiking, playing games, singing together, and listening to Adventures in Odyssey. We also enjoy the planting & harvest seasons on the farm, where we all get to take part in one way or another.

WOW: You are a busy and blessed momma! I’m guessing you don’t have a lot of spare time, but is there a hobby you enjoy? 

Sarah: One thing I enjoy is gardening, and a lot of the time, we work together as a family on that, too. 

WOW: I’m sure you are heavily involved in your local church. Share with us about a ministry you participate in regularly.

Sarah: I am currently involved in the children’s ministry of our church where Travis and I teach together in the children’s services. It is rewarding to share about God and His love for the children, and to watch them learn and grow in their faith, as well.

WOW: Tell us about a Scripture or promise from God’s Word that has been important to you.

Sarah: One of the Scriptures that has been meaningful to me is Proverbs 3:5 & 6. “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” If I try to rely on my own strength and wisdom, things definitely won’t turn out the way they should…but by truly relying on the leadership of the Lord and acknowledging Him in every area of my life, I can trust Him to lead and guide me as I do my best to live for Him and teach my children more about Him.

 Thank you, Mrs. Sarah Hatfield, for taking time to share with our readers! Your life is an inspiration to us, and we are excited to see how God continues to use you in His kingdom!
