Sara Hagerty is a lover of God, a wife to Nate, and a mother of six – four adopted from Africa and two through miracle pregnancies. She’s also a bestselling author and speaker. As a lifelong lover of words, Sara has experienced their power to revive. Words prayed during the long years it took to bring her six children into her fold. Raw words written in tearful honesty and shared with her readers. Words spoken in hidden places as whispers and worship to God. Today Sara’s words offer God’s hope to millions of readers facing unwanted circumstances in life.
In Sara’s first book, Every Bitter Thing Is Sweet (2014), she chronicles how her life expectations did not become reality – how the bitterness of loss and infertility was no match for God’s nearness to her in her pain. Sara’s second book, Unseen: The Gift of Being Hidden in a World that Loves to be Noticed (2017), explores the tension of our craving to be noticed as we live within the middle minutes, the unwitnessed parts of life, and how we can find God’s gently-searching eyes on us there. Sara writes and speaks on many topics, including adoration, the beauty of hiddenness, marriage and adoption.
Sara and her family live in Kansas City where she loves long runs on back country roads, reading through her overly ambitious book stack, and an early morning mug of chai tea.
