Webster’s Dictionary tells you that “serendipity” means “a pleasant surprise” or “fortunate discovery”, but for Sarah Jane, Serendipity means experiencing what she calls “a God thing – His perfect provision and plan.” Everything she has experienced with business from choosing to open the doors, to finding the right location, to the people she has met along the way, can all me summed up by the phrase “experience serendipity.”
