    We re drawn to where we come alive, to where our passion takes flight To where we are known We want to be with those who know us and remind us of what we like about ourselves Those who invite us to consider our lives as much bigger than what our eyes can see.Only the Lord can truly be that one who knows us and loves us that way.

    A wonderful exploration of a topic I didn t even realise I needed a book on Bit of context I was one of those people who felt like I was wasting myself in my current admin job This book helped me realise a life hidden in Christ is never wasted and even when the world doesn t see or appreciate us, He always, always sees us And loves us Teaching us to turn our eyes away from the world and onto Him.Sara Hagerty s writing is lovely very poetic I really loved the way she ended each chapter A wonderful exploration of a topic I didn t even realise I needed a book on Bit of context I was one of those people who felt like I was wasting myself in my current admin job This book helped me realise a life hidden in Christ is never wasted and even when the world doesn t see or appreciate us, He always, always sees us And loves us Teaching us to turn our eyes away from the world and onto Him.Sara Hagerty s writing is lovely very poetic I really loved the way she ended each chapter with a list of Bible verses, encouraging the reader to dig deeper into God s word.The book ends with an encouragement to waste time with God Which, of course, is the greatest possible use of our time He s been teaching me that during the COVID lockdown and I can say the things I ve been learning during time with Him are incredible.My only niggle with this book is the structure feels a little rambling at times It took me a while to realise the writer was drawing a lot from the story of Mary anointing Jesus with perfume She also tended to tell a lot of her personal story nothing wrong with that but I felt at times it distracted from the main themes of the book.May not be for everyone but very relevant for those who need it

    This is a stunningly written book It took me longer to read it than most books because I felt the need to take it all in slowly, to digest the words, to really appreciate the beautiful writing and intricate phrases Sara Hagerty has a gift This message is one that I think we can all relate to We have all felt cast aside, rejected, out of sorts, or unseen Sara s purpose of writing is to help us make the most of these times, to really see God in the midst of these circumstances To be hidden This is a stunningly written book It took me longer to read it than most books because I felt the need to take it all in slowly, to digest the words, to really appreciate the beautiful writing and intricate phrases Sara Hagerty has a gift This message is one that I think we can all relate to We have all felt cast aside, rejected, out of sorts, or unseen Sara s purpose of writing is to help us make the most of these times, to really see God in the midst of these circumstances To be hidden by God may feel to us like a punishment, but it is really a place for us to see and experience Godclearly

    I received this book as an advance reader copy and was so eager to dive in and get through it Sara s last book, Every Bitter Thing Is Sweet has left an impact on my that few other books have My goal was to get through it as fast as I could, but as I dove into the first chapter, it was evident that wouldn t be the case This is not a book that I could devour and set aside At the end of each chapter I was left challenged and with a heap of scripture that often leading me down a rabbit trail i I received this book as an advance reader copy and was so eager to dive in and get through it Sara s last book, Every Bitter Thing Is Sweet has left an impact on my that few other books have My goal was to get through it as fast as I could, but as I dove into the first chapter, it was evident that wouldn t be the case This is not a book that I could devour and set aside At the end of each chapter I was left challenged and with a heap of scripture that often leading me down a rabbit trail into the word of God.In this book, Sara puts words to something that many, if not all of us are feeling, especially in the world where it is so easy to base our worth on likes and views and followers What she is calling us to is a so much , and most often times counterintuitive to our do and tell human nature and certainly to today s culture She is suggesting where we may come to resent the unnoticed and misunderstood areas of our lives are the exact places where we can hide ourselves in Christ, and only then can experience true freedom It is an invitation to dive so much deeper than the surface, to look so much farther than what our eyes can see, to really begin to find our worth in the One who created us It is a journey that I believe will be deeply personal to each person, yet a place where we all have common ground.What I love perhaps most about her writing is that she is a true co traveler So much of what and how she writes comes from the deep parts of her soul and are born out of the experiences of her life, which as many of can relate, hasn t always works out just as we had planned You can tell she writes words that she is living and it almost feels as if you are having a conversation over coffee Her writing is poetic in many ways, yet still easy to consume, and it s a gift to the reader In many ways, I don t feel my words review can do justice to the content of the book, so my urge is to grab yourself a copy and maybe even one for a friend or two I certainly have and it will be one I give regularly In a world where we have so many choices on how we spend our time, I assure you, this will not be wasted time

    Unfortunately, I could not finish this book I made it about 75% through and it is very rare for me not to be able to finish a book that I start This is probably the first time in years that I was not able to get through a book Every chapter in this book felt the same to me This was not what I thought it would be about and I kept attempting to come back to it, but found it very irrelevant to my life I could not relate to any of the examples that she gave There were a few scattered nuggets o Unfortunately, I could not finish this book I made it about 75% through and it is very rare for me not to be able to finish a book that I start This is probably the first time in years that I was not able to get through a book Every chapter in this book felt the same to me This was not what I thought it would be about and I kept attempting to come back to it, but found it very irrelevant to my life I could not relate to any of the examples that she gave There were a few scattered nuggets of truth throughout, but the book was a very boring read overall.I still gave this book 2 stars, because while it is not relevant for me it may be for someone else You may like this book if you are a parent, especially a parent of adoptive children It also has beautiful cover art I received a free copy of this book from the publisher and Netgalley in exchange for my honest review
