Kara Tippetts knows the mundane but rich days of mothering four kids, the joy of watching her children grow.and the devastating reality of stage-four cancer.
In The Hardest Peace, she invites readers to see the grace of the everyday in all seasons of life and to live well even when the living is hard. As the thousands of readers of her blog know, Tippetts explores the hardest questions of life with rare beauty and honesty. Most of all, she draws them back to the God who is present, in the ordinary and the suffering, and shapes every life into the best story of all.
Kara Tippetts and her husband, Jason, have four children and lead a church in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Cancer is only part of Kara’s story. Her real fight is to truly live while facing a crushing reality. She blogs faithfully at http://www.mundanefaithfulness.com.
How do you live when doctors have given you a death sentence?
Author and mom Kara Tippetts of Mundane Faithfulness writes about her day to day life living with cancer. We get to walk with her through this ongoing journey. How does a mom prepare her children for life without her? How can she prepare her husband? How does she plan for the future? With heart-wrenching realness, Kara shares her inner most self on the pages of this book.
When I was eleven, my mom was given a death sentence by the doctors…pancreatic cancer. The doctors said she would be gone in 3 months, by the grace of God, she was given 19 more years!
Kara’s story hits home for me. I’ve lived it in ways and I’m still living it…it’s a wonderful, hard-to-read account of one woman’s journey towards the hardest peace.
We may not have cancer, but the clock is ticking on our time here and what we do with that time is more important than we can possibly imagine. This book encouraged me to live life to the full. To value the moments with my family. And to remember what’s most important.
