Today kicks off our first Sharing Love post. Throughout the month of February, Sweet Sleep will share stories from individuals, churches and other partners who have helped Sweet Sleep show love to orphans around the world by giving them a bed.

About a month before her 16th birthday, Hannah was looking forward to getting her first car. However, she felt the Lord leading her in a different direction. After much thought and prayer, she realized that because she had been blessed with so many gifts, the Lord had called her to help those less fortunate than her. Thus, she decided to give all the money she received for her birthday to Sweet Sleep in order to provide beds and mosquito nets for orphans in need.
Hannah heard about Sweet Sleep through her youth director, David Kephart, who had gone on a Sweet Sleep trip to Africa in 2010 with his wife, Whitney. A friend within Hannah’s church got wind of her blog and shared it with the congregation. She was given money, and sent it all directly to Sweet Sleep. Hannah says, “Ultimately, I believe Luke 12:48, which says,“From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.”
