Read the first chapter
For anyone who longs to experience God in the thick of life’s demands and the difficulties of this pandemic, Sara Hagerty’s ADORE offers a simple, soul-nourishing practice for engaging with God in the middle minutes of your day.
None of us signed up for a conventional experience with the unconventional God, yet too often the spiritual life can become routine, dare we say, even boring. In Adore, Sara Hagerty gives us all permission to admit “I barely know You, God,” or “I am very afraid right now,” and with this honest admission, to scoot a little nearer to this familiar Stranger. Adoration is the simple practice Sara discovered for starting where you are, and letting the grit and uncertainty of your day greet the beauty of God’s presence.

“Sara Hagerty’s voice of wisdom has long been one of my favorites, because of her consistency in pointing her readers toward the Word of God and the One who breathed it. In Adore, Sara beckons us to look for God where we might least expect Him, in the mundane middle of our days and our lives. Her words turn my gaze to Jesus, who calls me to know His heart for me in new ways. Sara takes God’s Word and makes it real, using her own experiences to show us how to apply His Truth to our own lives and how to open wide the doors for a new kind of relationship with our Father. In a world full of easy escapes, Adore is a needed reminder to center our lives around Jesus. If you, like me, need a fresh vision of God’s goodness in the midst of your ordinary, this book is for you. Come, feel His gaze on you! See how He loves you!” -Katie Davis Majors

This book is a must read, and one that I will go back to again and again. As Sara shares her heart and stories, you feel so known and understood, and drawn to the Savior’s feet to worship Him there, in the midst of the storm and unknown and hard. This book was such a timely tool for me to adore Him in the midst of my own heartache.

The longing of Sara’s heart is for God and His with-us Presence; her writing reveals glimpses into their holy relationship. Adoration is not a prayer technique but a response of our hearts to His unending invitation to be with Him … every moment of every day. I pray this book becomes contagious! Nothing is more important.
