Publisher's Description

Taste the Goodness of God

Sara Hagerty found Him when life stopped working for her. She found Him when she was a young adult mired in spiritual busyness and when she was a newlywed bride with doubts about whether her fledgling marriage would survive. She found Him alone in the night as she cradled her longing for babies who did not come. She found Him as she kissed the faces of children on another continent who had lived years without a mommy’s touch.

In Every Bitter Thing Is Sweet, Hagerty weaves fabric from the narrative of her life into the mosaic of a Creator who mends broken stories. Here you will see a God who is present in every changing circumstance. Most significantly, you see a God who is present in every unchanging circumstance as well.

Whatever lost expectations you are facing—in family, career, singleness, or marriage—Every Bitter Thing Is Sweet will bring you closer to a God who longs for you to know Him more.

Going beyond the narrative to offer timeless insight, Hagerty brings you back to hope, back to healing, back to a place that God is holding for you alone—a place where the unseen is more real than what the eye can perceive. A place where every bitter thing is sweet.

    This a heart-wrenching and soul stirring book, based on the author's struggle with her longing for a child, yet inability to conceive. She very openly shares the deepest pain and secrets of her heart, while always pointing to the Giver of Life, Christ.

    Interspersed with scripture and recommended meditation/reading, this book becomes a wonderful tool for others struggling to conceive. It will touch your heart and offer encouragement, as well as insight in to the working's of our Lord, and His awesome and perfect timing. Beautifully done.

    This book drew me in. Even though Sara and I did not share the same infertility, I understand how the focus on ministry kept her from really getting close to our creator in ways that should come naturally. As she journeyed through her life and found herself knowing God in the many ways and forms that He exists in our lives, I cried with her. Ive learned the ways that our Father comes in and teaches us, loves us, disciplines us and most importantly raises us up to share our stories with the world around us.

    Knowing God in the every day, the hard and the good can be both easy and hard. Finding out how to find joy on the journey of life and finding Gods goodness in every circumstance that surrounds us is vital to surviving and overcoming. I was shocked at how much I enjoyed this book. Not that the writing was bad, in fact it was excellent, but how the story just wrapped itself around my heart. Sara has a way of writing that just envelopes you and paints beautiful pictures of her story in your minds eye. If you havent read it you really should. It is beautiful.

    She put into words my desire to know Him more. To fill myself up with His words and allow Him to reach into my very being and change me. Sara is an artist with words.

    I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    As someone who has struggled with loss expectations and shattered dreams, I felt like Sara was inside my head as she shared the deep pain and hurt her infertility has brought into her life. It was encouraging and reassuring to read some of her thoughts as some of them are the same thoughts I've struggled with. This book is truly one of the best books I've read on longings that have yet to be met. It's helped me look at my pain in a different light and helped me to see how God has used and is continuing to use it to invite me in closer to Him. Sara's transparency and pure honesty in sharing her story and telling how God continues to shape her is a gift. This book is for anyone who has tasted the bitterness of life and is searching to find some sweetness.

    Sharing stories is something that draws people together; we often reflect on our own story as it applies to others as we use our own experiences to develop a deeper understanding of our own beliefs. Sara authentically pours out her heart as she shares her story, leaving no facet unturned as she speaks of a God who purposefully uses life to bring us to places where, knowing Him deeper, can be the only true conclusion one can draw. Gods faithfulness is beautifully displayed in Saras desire to see the negative situations in life as launching points for deeper understanding of a God who never leaves us. Reading this book, no one can walk away and feel that, in the most difficult situations in life, you are alone. The things that hurt the most, the things that our hearts dont readily understand, are moments for a God of love to use for moments of sweet surrender in His presence. Saras story can be our own story, hungry for more than this world has to offer. Perspective change offers great opportunity to be filled with a God who longs to be known by His children because He knows each one personally. God made us to worship and in lifes cloudy moments, when worship seems like the last thing to do, hungry and crying out to Him is when God shows up in more marvelous ways than we could ever imagine. Thank you, Sara, for authentically and unashamedly sharing your story; your story is His story and through you, God will be glorified through shaping others stories as well.
