Sara Hagerty is a wife, mother and writer - in that order. Like many of us, she grew up dreaming of being a mom. But after having her heart broken again and again by negative pregnancy tests, she accepted that God's path for her life didn't look much like what she had envisioned. Sara and her husband are now the adoptive parents of four African children, as well as two biological children. Her journey has lead her not only to the family God has designed for her, but into a closer relationship with Him and a search to see herself through His eyes.

What we chat about:

  • How social media feeds into our innate need to be seen and validated
  • Finding value in the mundane moments of your life
  • The importance of being vulnerable with God
  • What God truly thinks about us and why we have such a hard time believing it
  • Using brokenness as an antidote to shame
  • Practical ways to create margin time with your family

Episode Sponsor: New Eve Jewelry

New Eve Jewelry got its name from Eve in the Bible – God’s first woman. She gets a bad rap, but the truth is that God redeemed her, sending Jesus to bear the punishment for her rebellion. From the moment Eve ran back to God, He made her new. Each piece of New Eve Jewelry, handcrafted with repurposed materials and semiprecious gemstones, serves as a reminder of this. No matter what we’ve done or what our circumstances look like, rich new life can always be found in Jesus.
