Description

"I was here. I saw beauty. I embraced it."

—Kara Tippetts How do you live out extravagant love in the everyday moments? How do you celebrate grace when your life turns out differently than the one you dreamed? Kara Tippetts discovered how to find joy in the small moments of life. She learned how to hold tight to hope even while battling intense physical and emotional pain. And she lived out the truth that God can redeem any story. In her final book, Kara offers gentle reflections on living and dying well. She invites us to cultivate soft hearts even when we face great disappointment. Her ideas for living are hard-won, wrestled with in the crucible of family, illness, and faith. And her constant reminder is that whether we are in the midst of dark days or mundane moments Jesus is always there, life is surprisingly beautiful, and God is forever good.

        The late Tippetts (1976–2015), who spent years with stage IV breast cancer, spent the bulk of her final days treasuring the time she had with family and friends. In this departing book, her poetic words live on to remind those who knew this remarkable woman and her work that life is precious. Tippetts’s compiled essays are drawn from her popular blog, Mundane Faithfulness. Readers will find themselves laughing at her take on everyday matters and weeping along with this young mother of four children, who just wants to see them grow up. Tippetts details the painful lows of fighting the disease and how completely undone she was by the grueling process. Whether the reader has cancer, knows someone who does, or simply hungers for a raw autobiography penned by an individual in the trenches, this heartrending text will not disappoint.
