JUST SHOW UP
Kara Tippetts & Jill Lynn Buteyn
It was not a story of saying goodbye, although she was intentional in her time with her husband and four children. Kara’s story was one of seeing God in the hard and in the good. It was one of finding grace in the everyday. And it was one of knowing “God with us” through fierce and beautiful friendship.
In Just Show Up, Kara and her close friend, Jill Lynn Buteyn, write about what friendship looks like in the midst of changing life seasons, loads of laundry, and even cancer. Whether you are eager to be present to someone going through a difficult time or simply want inspiration for pursuing friends in a new way, this eloquent and practical book explores the gift of silence, the art of receiving, and what it means to just show up.
I was so touched by Kara’s story, I loved reading her blog posts and I prayed and grieved for her family when I heard of her passing.
Through her books Kara was able to reach out and touch people’s lives and now, even though she’s gone…she’s still making an impact.
Just Show Up is so wonderful because it’s often in life’s most difficult trials that we feel so helpless. How do we minister and reach out to those who are suffering? Kara’s book will show readers why it’s so important to be a friend and what that really looks like.
