kara tippetts in her new book, “and it was beautiful book coveranditwasbeautiful” published by David C Cook gives us Celebrating Life in the Midst of the Long Good-Bye.

From the back cover:   “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.

Kara Tippetts was dying from Stage IV cancer. This is her last book. What Kara had done was a daily blog and this book is a collection of those last posts. This woman understood who was the source of her life. She also understood Grace. In her blog posts she was able to communicate what she was learning. This is a fascinating book. It almost is like a devotional. We learn so much from what Ms. Tippetts had to express. You are going to want to read what she had to say twice.  I believe this book is a resource that will be used over and over again.  I also think it is a great gift to give to friends and family who might be hurting as well.  I recommend this book highly.
