Our Story

The beginning

The Glory House came into existence when Grant & Hope Staples moved home to Laurel, MS and began praying about how God could use a house so strategically placed to serve a community. After lots of prayer and many circumstances shifting into place, their prayers where answered with the purchase of this home. Formerly, the old "Laurel Inn," the house was vacant for seven years, and they are the seventh family to own the house since its construction in 1907.
