Kara shrugs herself off as ordinary but I know she isn't.  She is one special mom who is doing her very best to live every day to the fullest.  This is with the concrete knowledge that the sand is running out of the hourglass. Kara has stage IV cancer but doesn't let it rule her world. Her world is according to G-d. She is blessed with a beautiful family and wonderful friends who support her on her journey.  She shares herself openly in this book which truly touched my heart.  As you read, you only hope that you might have some of her grace and peace.  This is one book that you must read, I will be honest, with a box of tissues....but you must know her story and share it with others. She has wisdom that will make you think and hopefully you might take some actions to live your life more fully. I think if every reader took a tiny step back and considered some of the tidbits Kara shares, she would be so joyous that her story has touched and help others. You can learn more about Kara via her blog MundaneFaithfullness, and follow her on Instagram and Twitter as well.

About the book:
Kara Tippetts knows the ordinary days of mothering four kids, the joy of watching her children grow…and the devastating reality of stage-IV cancer. In The Hardest Peace, Kara invites readers to see the grace of the everyday in all seasons of life and to live well even when the living is hard. This book is an invitation to join her in moving away from fear and control and toward peace and grace. Just as the thousands of people who read her blog know, Tippetts explores the hardest questions of life with rare beauty and honesty. Most of all, she draws them back to the God who is present, in the ordinary and the suffering, and shapes every life into the best story of all.
