Are you going through your own hard season right now? You know, the kind that brings you down to your knees and has you wondering if there is any end in sight?  Kara Tippetts went through her own hard season, and instead of hiding in the midst of her pain, she opened up her life to the world through her blog, Mundane Faithfulness. This book is her story.  So take some time to read the info below and find out why you should pick up this book as your next read.


About the book:


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.

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.

My Review:
This book is filled with Kara Tippett's blog posts from her blog, Mundane Faithfulness.  Her story is beautiful and touching, and Kara is open and honest about her journey through this disease called cancer. I found her book refreshing. This book is a great one for those walking a dark road through disease and loss.  It's encouraging to find that we are not alone in our journey of suffering, and that the only way to endure it, is to fix our eyes on Jesus.  Make sure to have some kleenex handy as some of the posts had me tearing up.  Kara was one who pointed others to Jesus, and she encouraged others to do the same.  I would definitely recommend this book for anyone who is struggling as they face the unknown of hardship in their life. And if you haven't already, make sure to pick up Kara's other books, The Hardest Peace and Just Show Up.  They are definitely books that should be on everyone's bookshelf!
