And It Was Beautiful: Celebrating Life in the Midst of the Long Good-Bye by Kara Tippetts --Book Tour Review
About the Book
How do you celebrate grace when your life turns out differently than the one you dreamed? Kara Tippetts shares how you can celebrate life in the midst of pain and suffering in the final book, And It Was Beautiful, she wrote before her death in March 2015. 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.
And It Was Beautiful: Celebrating Life in the Midst of the Long Good-Bye(David C Cook, March 2016)
“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.
About the Author
Kara Tippetts was the author of The Hardest Peace and the co-author of Just Show Up. She blogged faithfully at mundanefaithfulness.com. Since her death in March 2015, her husband, Jason, has been parenting their four children and leading the church the couple founded in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Kara Tippetts’ story is beautiful and truly inspiring. It is about living every day and being grateful for that moment. It is about learning how to discover the joy of life even through the pain. This reminds me of the common quote, “Live well. Laugh often. Love much.” There is so much power in living life and being happy. Kara teaches and inspires readers with her tender story. I would recommend this book to readers that are struggling in life and need a boost, or those that just want to be inspired.
