The Bio

Sara is a wife to Nate and a mother of five whose arms stretched wide across the ocean to Africa. After almost a decade of Christian life she was introduced to pain and perplexity and, ultimately, intimacy with Jesus. God met her and moved her when life stopped working for her. His Word and His whisper took on new shape and form to her in the dark. Sara writes regularly about life-delays, finding God in the unlikely, motherhood, marriage and adoption at www.EveryBitterThingisSweet.com.

 

EveryBitterThingIsSweetbySaraHagertyThe Book

Finding joy amid pain, growing through frustrations, seeing God dash our hopes and dreams only to see Him rebuild them better and bolder…that’s what this book is about. That’s what Sara Hagerty’s life story is about. It’s a story of loss and love and languish and laughter. It’s a story of the broken made whole, the shattered person broken even more only to be restored, the hurt finding happiness. In short, it is a deeply personal story and at the same time it is all of our stories.
