Grand Rapids, Mich., Sept. 24, 2018 – Sara Hagerty, author of Every Bitter Thing is Sweet and Unseen, has signed a new two-book contract with Zondervan. The first title in the contract, Adore, is set to release in 2020. Hagerty is represented by Mike Salisbury with Yates & Yates and world rights were acquired by Zondervan associate publisher Stephanie Smith.

In Adore, Hagerty invites readers to experience the presence of an unconventional God in the midst of the grit of life through a simple, daily practice.She gives readers a starting place for adoration with thirty attributes of God with which we followers of Him wrestle to see.

Sara is a wife to Nate and a mother of six whose arms stretched wide across the expanse between the United States and Africa.

And out of the overflow of this perplexity, came her writing, both on her blog and in her books – Every Bitter Thing Is Sweet and Unseen: The Gift of Being Hidden in a World that Loves to be Noticed.
