Finding Beauty In Your Boundaries

What if your limitations were, in fact, your greatest gift?

I Love Words and I Love Him

God continues to surprise me by how he intersects the middle minutes of my day.
I write so as to give language to god’s intervention into my story…And to invite you to consider his hand, reaching into yours.

The Book

A simple practice for experiencing god in the middle minutes of your day
Foreword by Lauren Chandler
The gift of being hidden in a world that loves to be noticed
Yet most of our lives is unwitnessed. We spend our days working, driving, parenting. We sometimes spend whole seasons feeling unnoticed and unappreciated. So how do we find contentment when we feel so hidden?

Tasting the Goodness of God in All Things

Every Bitter Thing Is Sweet

In the age of fingertip access to answers and a limitless supply of ambitions,
where do we find the God who was birthed in dirt and straw? Sara Hagerty found him when life stopped working for her.

You Are The Lord Who Sees Our Praise As Beautiful

Rejoice in the lord, o you righteous!
For praise from the upright is beautiful
Psalm 33:1

My Story


Married to my best friend, mama to seven, book nerd, and author. God continues to surprise me by how He intersects the middle minutes of my day. I write in the extra margins of my life, so as to put language to how He intervenes in my story … and to invite you to see new ways He might be intervening in yours.

I pray about each speaking inquiry individually

With seven children at home, life is very full. I intentionally limit my speaking engagements throughout the year, though I absolutely love getting to travel and see your faces in person and talk about Him.

When you find yourself in winter

A tree doesn’t survive the winter without healthy roots. Neither do we. I remember that bleak February morning when my husband and I loaded up our car and drove through the stripped-bare forests of the Blue Ridge Mountains to move into my parents’ basement.


Sara Hagerty

Hey you! So glad you’re here. This is one of my favorite spaces. I’m Sara, a mama to seven who is learning to see God’s thread in life’s middle minutes. I spend most of my days with the crew under my roof – teenagers all the way down to a surprise baby – and I write  in the extra margins of life.  You can find most of my writing on Instagram, in my monthly (or not-so-monthly-when-life-at-home-is-full) newsletter, and in the pages of books. Every Bitter Thing is Sweet, Unseen: The Gift of Being Hidden in a World that Loves to be Noticed, and Adore.
