Every Bitter Thing is Sweet is written by Sara Hagerty.
This is a story about how one person who has been broken and torn to pieces emotionally was put back together by God, one step at a time. Sara met her husband, got married and then had years of infertility, yet God had a plan in all of this. God used their marriage struggles and infertility to bring them closer to Him. They adopt 4 kids from Africa and wouldn't you know it what God has been doing in Sara's life for years gave her the strength to help one of her own adopted kids with some of the same issues that she has dealt with for so long.
When I first started this book, I had a hard time figuring out where the author was going. After the second chapter I told my husband that I really didn't like this book, how it has to get better and that I almost don't want to finish it. As I got into the third chapter things got better and I was following the book better than what I was. As I got more into the book I found that I just couldn't put the book down. I wanted to finish it as quick as possible to see how it was going to end.
I really liked this book once I got into it. Even though this book is a lot about her issues with infertility, a lot of these lessons that she has learned can be applied to anyone's situation. Sara learned that she can transform bitter things into sweet and so can you.
I liked how at the end of each chapter she had Bible verses that you could look up if you wanted to.
