Today I’m delighted to introduce you to my friend Sara Hagerty. I met Sara indirectly through BB. Back in our days of adoption preparation, I spent hours on the internet looking for stories and glimpses into what life would be like with our brood. I stumbled upon her website where I watched a video summary of their adoption wait. I showed BB, who promptly replied, “hey, that’s Nate Hagerty (Sara’s husband)! I went to college with him.”
A fun small world experience led me to subscribe to Sara’s blog for the next year or so and be fed from her table of adoration. Sara’s writing is raw, honest and beautiful, and I’m so excited to tell you that now you can read it in book form! Her soon to be bestseller, Every Bitter Thing is Sweet, releases today.
I was privileged to receive an advance copy of the book, and I’m devouring it. I find myself caught up in the hunger for more of Him as I read her story. Sara has a beautiful story (that’s still being written), much of which I can relate to – infertility, adoption, and then a surprise of fertility – but that’s not why it’s great.
Sara’s book brings to me an encounter with Jesus, and isn’t that what so many of us are looking for in life? Her words make me want to put the book down and pick up the Bible, singing praise to the one who brings water in the desert.
Enough from me – go get this book. You will be blessed, you will meet Jesus in the pages, and you will not regret it. You can order it here and be reading it in minutes (or 2 days if you are old school). Order by October 14 and receive a free song and devotional. Details here.
