Book Giveaway: THE HARDEST PEACE, by KARA TIPPETTS

I really expected this book to be about the details of Kara Tippetts illness, you know the kind of sad book that you wish there was a cure for cancer right now. I cried through many pages, just warning you. 

But wait, this is what the book is about:

The Hardest Peace is about Kara's life, her husband, her children, and herself. It's about her relationship with God, life, and yes, Cancer. It's about finding peace. Peace is every day, Every moment, everything, everywhere, and being thankful to God you have those moments.

This afternoon, I read the book all at once, I couldn't put it down. I got to the end there is a letter from her and one from her husband, and one to her children. I'll read it soon, but right now I have to get the chicken out of the oven. Meals should be more than food. I read that in this book. It's not all about the food on the table it's about who is at the table nourishing our bodies and our souls. 


That's it, peace for your soul.

Kara introduces the reader to her childhood, which wasn't so happy due to a father that wasn't able to show his love in a conventional way.  She shares about the special love she has for her Grandmother and her visits at grandma's home.  She shares about how she met and married her husband. There are more sad parts than just her illness of Cancer. But, she pushes on and learns to enjoy each moment, each sip of tea, each sunset. You know the things we should all enjoy. Slow down and enjoy each other, the wind whistling thorough the trees, the warmth of sunshine, the rain, all of it.


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.

About Kara:
